Wait wait wait... Johnny San Diego.. I thought we were "Kajiit South" here in Texas? Maybe we are "Kajiit Deep South" We have a corner of Buick Parts in the shed to prove it even. I'm texting operations management ASAP. (Handsome Dan will straighten this out.)

If we're getting territorial here, I'm calling dibs on "Unclaimed Baggage".

You're not Deep South. You're either Kajiit Southwest or maybe Kajiit TOLA. Deep South would be Alabama/Mississippi.

if you go south of Kajiit, you either get to choose ocean or follow the coast to my own more modest house of wares. thus the name south was chosen. i have quite the inventory of unwanted P series cowls, P125 cylinders, and expired tires that have never been used. i trade used working scooters for piles of treasures 4x as heavy in weight.

i can be persuaded to let go of the name kajiit south by the use of ham or 3 speed bajaj 2 port motors in bits.

Painted one side of these massive 9' doors we have in the house. I stripped them both and pulled all the caulk the previous owner put in the gaps. Wanted to stain them and rehang them but they are in extra extra rough shape, so I filled the gaps with wood filler and gave them a fresh coat of paint. Took me 5 yrs… lol

my brother and I built and installed a custom double door at a clients house, replacing the absolute most low rent, bottom rung, unpainted home depot special that had been there for TWENTY FIVE YEARS.

we were doing some of a kitchen remodel (the cabinets mainly) and this dude's wife absolutely lit his ass up in front of us because he was trying to negotiate the deal and wanted to do some of the work himself. she was all: I'm not about to have no doors on my cabinets for twenty five years David!

naturally he got all sullen about it and sulked off and she yelled into the hall: and they're doing the front door too!

super awkward. but she saw the opportunity and snatched it!

so five years, yeah, you're ahead of the curve!

a solid wood 9' door is extremely impressive. It's got to weight a ton. I would think you'd want 5 or 6 commercial duty hinges to hang it!

Of course, my pile of px cowls can always fit one more! I have a small list of VBB needs yet. I gotta check my stash though. I needed a horn but I'm not sure if there's one from the nam bike. Working is optional.

It's quite heavy and has 3 hinges. It's all original to the house so 155 yrs old. It's seen some shit! The hinges have 2 1/2" screws which makes sense and I've never seen before. I'm just glad it's not made of oak, there's no way I'd be able to move something that heavy.

Years back, I stripped all the interior doors and woodwork back to bare wood. 2 boys were hard on the house and none of it would hold more paint. Wood from the 1930's is sure a lot better than what we have today. Wears like iron with a few coats of poly, but what a job.

I started on the other side today. My shoulders are toast. If I didn't have to re-replace my right shoulder before this ( I did ), I'd definitely have to now. Feels like I have 5 grit sandpaper for a shoulder joint! But with being the primary care giver to two kids I can't take 2 weeks off to replace it again. One day I'll find the time.

Group 6?
Sky, first, Soldiers, Mall cops, groups 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, a pause for women, children, airline employees, then 6.
Does that even guarantee a seat or is it just SRO in the bathroom?
(Can't wait to see the outcome.
Lord I hope this isn't for a P.)
🙂

Here: SoCal came up and helped me spray color on some lathe components.
Been teaching myself how to using YouTubes and some sage advice from Mike.
Of course, wouldn't be a CM project if there wasn't some experimentation.

Discovered people are making bouncy castle style paint booths.
They go up in a matter of seconds - and have positive pressure.
Overspray is filtered out so you don't paint everyone else's car in the parking lot.
That's a bonus.

Here is a lil vid of it getting set up:

Outstanding! And I was reminded while cleaning the basement Saturday that I have a couple of folding garment racks down there that nobody would miss if I repurposed them, too.

Yesterday, I got together with a couple of other local scooterists and got my firs real experience wrenching on a Lambretta. Engineering-wise, I'm just going to say that I don't see what all the fuss is about. It rides nicely, but a lot of that was just inertial smoothness from the fact that they're a lot heavier than a Vespa.

Good front disc brake on the one I rode, pretty good power, but whoever built the motor made a MESS of the port timings. I manged to get it up into the power curve once by abusing the clutch to within an inch of its life and it took off pretty good at that point, so we decided to take a look.

We pulled the head and measured and they were low (122/180, but guessing on the conn rod) with a high RPM tuned pipe. Squish was 2.7mm. After some discussion, we're thinking box exhaust and probably lower the timings a little bit more to take down the squish. My measurements weren't great for a multitude of reasons (darkness, alcohol, motor in the frame), but they were close enough to confirm why it had no low end power.

Along with the Lammy, we tore into a P200 with a locked up motor. Determined that it was jammed up by something in the crank. Barrel was pristine, but it had been HORRIBLY rebuilt. Stock top end and ports, and the transfer was almost completely blocked up with RTV, to the point I don't see how it ever even ran enough to GET jammed up.

That one is going to get a full rebuild and some nice go-fast parts. We're still discussing what all that will entail, though.

All-in-all, a fun afternoon/evening wrenching and shooting the shit. Five stars; would recommend.

I'll just say I'm not seeing anything to convince me that I need a Lammy thus far.

I should have gotten some pictures of the P motor. It's not going anywhere until the next time I see it, though, so they'll happen.

Ned, as expected, did his homework and didn't cut corners on paint, supplies or prep. By the second coat he was spraying like a pro. Results speak for themselves … take a peek.
