APRIL 19 2015

 

IT WAS A FUN COUPLE OF DAYS GETTING THE LAST OF THE EQUIPMENT OFF THE WINTER ROAD THAT IS MELTING AWAY.

 

STUCK

 

I EVEN HAD TO PULL THE CHEVY TRUCKS IN TANDEM BECAUSE IT WOULD TAKE TOO LONG TO PULL ONE AT A TIME.

 

CHEVY

 

APRIL 13 2015

 

I DECIDED AFTER ALL THESE YEARS I WOULD TREAT MYSELF AND BUY BRAND NEW PARTS TO TUNE UP THE "FAMOUS BLACK CAT". EVERYTHING ARRIVED OK IN SHIPPING AND THE PARTS LOOK TO BE OF GOOD QUALITY.

 

IH PARTS

 

APRIL 12 2015

 

IT HAS BEEN BUSY IN THE "KINGDOM" THIS PAST WEEK WITH THE LAST OF THE WINTER ROAD SEASON. PLUS I'M DOING THIS LITTLE PROJECT OF MOUNTING THE TILT DECK FROM THE "SCREAMING FORD" ON THE BREAD TRUCK.

 

DECK

 

APRIL 08 2015

 

A YEAR AFTER THE FAN HIT THE RAD ON THE 1938 MAPLE LEAF I DECIDED IT IS TIME TO FIX IT. IT WILL BE A GREAT PROJECT INSIDE THE SHOP ON THE SNOW DAYS WE ARE GOING TO BE GETTING.

RAD

 

APRIL 07 2015

 

SPRING IS ALMOST HERE IN THE "KINGDOM" AND THE 1939 CHEVY WORKS GREAT FOR HAULING THINGS AWAY.

 

39

 

APRIL 06 2015

 

THE EASTER BUNNY STOPPED BY THE "KINGDOM" WHICH WAS REALLY NICE TO GET GIFTS FROM MY "KINGDOM FOLLOWERS".

 

EASTER

 

APRIL 05 2015

 

NOW THE CONFUSSION WILL NOW BEGIN WITH 2 TRAILERS THAT ARE MADE THE SAME. THE TRAILERS HAVE DIFFERENT TRAILER NUMBERS PLUS DIFFERENT STYLE OF WHEELS.

 

DIFFERENT

 

APRIL 04 2015

 

TRAILER #1 IS FINISHED AND LOOKING GOOD WITH REFECTIVE TAPE AND THE PROPER COLOUR.

 

COLOUR

 

BACK

 

APRIL 03 2015

 

IT TOOK ALMOST 6 YEARS BUT I FINALLY GOT THE RIGHT PAINT COLOUR ON TRAILER #1. THE TRAILER LOOKS ALOT BETTER WITH BLACK PAINT THEN GREY PAINT FOR SOME REASON.

 

GREY

 

BLACK

 

APRIL 02 2015

 

IT DID NOT TAKE LONG TO GET TRAILER #11 FINISHED BECAUSE IT IS NICE AND WARM IN THE LITTLE SHOP WHEN IT IS -28C OUTSIDE.

 

FINISHED

 

APRIL 01 2015

 

THE BOX ON THE TRUCK WAS IN BAD SHAPE SO I HAD TO MAKE A FLAT DECK FOR TRAILER #11.

 

WOOD

 

THIS IS THE LAST TRUCK THAT I HAVE TO MAKE TRAILERS OUT OF AND OF COURSE THE TRUCK IS IN VERY BAD SHAPE. I HAD TO USE THE 3/4" IMPACT TO GET THE WHEEL NUTS OFF BECAUSE OF THE RUST.

 

NUTS

 

MARCH 31 2015

 

TODAY WAS A FUN DAY WELDING ON A NEW LOWBED THAT IS 10 FEET WIDE AND RATED FOR 50 TONS. I USED THE "SCREAMING FORD" TO MOVE THE TRAILER AROUND AND I DON'T THINK THE TRUCK COULD HANDLE THE TRAILER FULLY LOADED, LOL.

 

LOWBED

 

MARCH 30 2015

 

I GOT A CALL TO HEAD UP THE CLOSED WINTER ROAD FOR A LITTLE SERVICE CALL. IT WAS VERY BORING BUT I HAD FUN, LOL.

 

CLOSED

 

MARCH 28 2015

 

IT WAS A FUN DAY WORKING IN THE WET SNOW ON THIS NEW STYLE LOWBED. VERY NICE LOWBED AND IT WAS EASY TO WORK ON COMPARED TO SOME OF THE EQUIPMENT I GET TO WORK ON FROM THE WINTER ROAD.

 

LOWBED

 

MARCH 27 2015

 

I FINISHED UP TRAILER #9 WHICH LOOKS GOOD WITH LOTS OF BLACK PAINT SPLASHED ALL OVER IT, LOL.

 

TRAILER

 

MARCH 26 2015

 

IT WAS AN INTERESTING DAY IN THE "KINGDOM" WITH A WINTER ROAD HAULER BREAKING DOWN IN FRONT OF THE SHOP. THE ALTENATOR DECIDED TO SEIZE UP AND WE CAUGHT IT JUST IN TIME AS THE BELT WAS STARTING TO GET DESTORIED. IF THIS HAPPENED AN HOUR EARLIER I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN A SERVICE CALL TO FIX THE TRUCK UP ON THE WINTER ROAD.

MARCH 25 2015

 

I GOT A NICE PRESENT IN THE MAIL FROM A USA KINGDOM FOLLOWER WHICH CONSISTED OF CANDY BARS AND CHEESE WHIZ. THIS WILL KEEP ME GOING FOR A FEW DAYS, LOL. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE GIFT.

 

GIFT

 

MARCH 24 2015

 

IT WAS A NICE RELAXING DAY REMOVING THE RAD FROM THE GRADER TO FIX THE PTO SHAFT. THE MONSTER TRUCK WORKED GOOD USING THE DERRICK TO REMOVE THE RAD.

 

RAD

 

MARCH 23 2015

 

I HAD A BUSY WEEKEND FIXING BROKEN PLUMBING ON A HOUSE IN THE SUBURBS. OF COURSE THE BROKEN LINES WERE BEHIND THE WALL IN THE SHOWER WHICH IS NO PROBLEM WHEN YOU HAVE A CHAINSAW. I REPLACED EVERYTHING WITH NEW TAPS AND PEX PLUMBING LINES.

 

SHOWER

 

SINCE THE WINDOW IN THE BATH TUB HAS TO BE REMOVED DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS, IT WAS JUST A QUICK FIX FOR NOW.

 

FINSIHED

 

MARCH 22 2015

 

I HAD TO DRAG THE MONSTER TRUCK OUT OF THE SNOW BANK SO I COULD USE THE DERRICK TO LIFT AND HOLD THE RAD ON THE GRADER.

 

TRUCK

 

THE BEST THING TO DO WITH BROKEN TRUCKS IS MAKE A TRAILER OUT OF THEM. THIS TRUCK DID NOT TAKE LONG TO STRIP DOWN SO I CAN MAKE A TRAILER.

 

MOOSE TRUCK

 

MARCH 20 2015

 

I WAS HAVING A BUSY COUPLE OF DAYS FIXING BROKEN SPRINGS ON THE WINTER ROAD HAULING TRUCKS.

 

BROKEN

 

MARCH 17 2015

 

MY LITTLE LOADER HAD NO PROBLEM TO LIFT THE PLANE UP ON TO THE TRAILER TO HEAD SOUTH FOR REPAIRS.

 

PLANE

 

MARCH 16 2015

 

IT WAS A BUSY DAY IN THE "KINGDOM" WITH WINTER ROAD REPAIRS PLUS AN AIRPLANE ARRIVING.

 

ARRIVING

 

THE CARGO NETTING IS SO THE PLANE DOES NOT TRY AND FLY WHEN THE HELICOPTER IS CARRYING. I HAD THE EASY JOB OF UNHOOKING THE CABLE TO RELEASE THE PLANE, LOL.

 

NETTING

 

JAN 19 2015

 

I WAS VERY SURPRISED WHEN I RECIEVED A PACKAGE IN THE MAIL FROM NORTHERN IRELAND LAST WEEK. ALL I COULD SAY WAS WOW EH!!

 

GIFT
