Here's our outdoor thermometer reading well over 90 F in the sun today. The humidity is also way up -- dew point of 72 F, which means this is a very uncomfortable kind of air that Maine doesn't often get.
Too hot to work outdoors, that's for sure.
I worked on the truck this morning, while it was a little cooler. I scraped and wire-brushed the rust with the air-hammer and angle grinder, and painted the underside with the pneumatic sprayer, and fitted the new drums.
I need a bit more paint to get a little better coverage.
And I need my new leaf springs to be delivered.
Come on, Fedex. I'm sure your vans are air-conditioned, right?
