Last year I had bought this cherry rocking chair for $10 that had been painted an ugly green....stripped and refinished it....that chair sold for $400. Gotta love those Restores! Did I mention that Jack211 was instrumental in starting that store before he passed away? Anyway.....support your local HfH Restores!
Don't forget posting here on RCG as well

Thats an awesome profit margin great job!!! and Kudos to Jack211 for the aide in getting the shop started, what about a real antique light restoration, like restoring a candle

Oh and snowman no were not finished until the snow blocks the path to Shame alley

Wayne That Jet is wicked I'm so looking forward to building one once we move

Snowdog you are correct the T_ _ _ T laughs in the winds I had min out in 35mph + a couple weekends ago doesn't even phase it at all

Well I plan on flying the FPV Kadet and T_ _ _ T tomorrrow I just swapped out the Fuel tank in the edge so I'm gonna give that a try again too.

hopefully the weather will cooperate its suppose to rain tonight into tomorrow morning and its been pooring all day here and the winds have been relentless all week, but It doesn't make a difference we fly during the breaks of rain and wind isn't even a factor as far as going flying is concerned, we might be limited on what we can do a little and what planes can come out and play but we go regardless hopefully I'll get some huckin vids cause our time is getting short now, the last time I tried doing a hover with the T_ _ _ T was in those 35+ winds I couldn't get low at all as once it went into a hover the wind just blew it across the field LOL was great fun though

LOL Snowman hey at least the wax was good for something else

I just siliconed my rear windw in the van I've been trying to find a leak in the back area for 2 years, I thought it was in the frame work after the door was dented when towing a camper 2 years ago, apparently I shouldn'thave turned as sharp when backing up well the door was fixed but the dang leak remained I finally took a hose to the back door and sprayed and searched and saw oodles of water coming in from the window so Hopefully this just fixed that I'm sick of a wet rug in the back door area everytime it rains or I give it a car wash, I finally just took the whole back door dressing off and spotted the cause, I just hope thats the only spot

Oh yeah it was 23 years ago today our band Overture played our first gig we actually hadn't figured out a name yet and there was a Wet Paint sign on the back of the stage so we went on as Wet Paint for our 1st 6 gigs lol ahhhhh memories lol

Happy anniversary Overture!!

Looks great Wayne! Nothing like a quickie!

I just got a few flights on the Sabre. I think I finally have it calmed down between moving the engine and reflexing the ailerons.

Big Fricken Speakers came via Brown today....Since I purchased them, the price on them <same link, same seller Amazon> went up nearly 90 each. Were the priced wrong when I bought them, was I the bait to get others to shop? Even at the price now, they are still 50 plus dollars cheaper then the other Amazon Sellers or anyone on Ebay.

Wife struggled getting them in the garage one at a time, they must be tons of fun.

Welp, off to cook frys at the football game, daughter is in the HS band and this is the only time I wear red.

[QUOTE=plowboy1966;23047637]Why in Earth trap coyotes? They won't even make a good gravy!! [/QUOTE Coyotes are the most elusive canine to trap in Michigan, they have a beautiful coat, and lessening their numbers increases the numbers of deer, partridge, and fox. Three sound reasons, plus it's my heritage which will die with me....as none of my children care to carry on this way of life.
