Damian and family migrated to the kitchen table, with presents etc in tow!! (The inappropriate card in the middle of the photo is from Scottie of course!!)
Damian's family gave him a cool new tool chest with tools!!
Scottie gave Damian some scratchies, and in keeping with Damian's usual luck, he scratched a whopping THREE DOLLARS!! Woot!! Damian intends to donate this back to Instant Scratch-It in the form of another three one dollar scratchies!!
Damian's boys decided that Tonka should join the festivities and attached a bow... Tonka gave up trying to remove it and had a nap!
After coffee and pancakes (birthday breakfast!!), the boys headed to the shed, where Damian got to work gluing on more door rubbers...
Scottie used some "gentle persuasion" to adjust the shape of the front seat mounting plates to match the floor pan...
Scottie then wanted a road trip to collect some more bits and pieces... Damian pointed out that since it was Anzac Day, nothing would be open. Scottie decided that it was time to sort out the mess in the shed - get tools back in order, and make a pile of rubbish to be thrown out etc.
This is what it looked like to begin with... (Actually, this is after Scottie had already moved a heap of stuff!)
Meanwhile, Damian kept on gluing, finishing his second door!!
Damian's son Aidan decided to try out Booger's head - his feet are the snot!!
Damian's boys also helped him out by putting all the tools into his new tool chest...
Damian had moved onto the third door rubber, only to run out of special glue 3/4 of the way around! He will have to wait until Monday for the shops to open again!!
Scottie had continued cleaning the shed, sorting tools from junk, junk from useful stuff, useful stuff from stuff suitable to sell on Ebay...
Damian's shed hasn't been this clean since it was built!!
Outside the shed, there was a pile of metal junk to be loaded into the XD and dumped at some stage...
And a pile of general garbage that Damian will feed into his wheelie bin over the coming weeks...
No day working on Booger Mobile would be complete without Damian having painted something black... this time, it was a set of small nuts and bolts to attach some more LED safety lights!
And here they are nice and black!!
After cleaning up the shed, Scottie had moved onto trial fitting the exhaust... Here's what the exhaust tip looks like sticking out behind Booger Mobile!!
Damian had attached another set of amber ultra-bright LED lights to the front and rear of the roof-rack (far left and far right of the image below). These will be wired into the same controller as the first set of amber LED lights.
Oh, there was also some official paperwork completed, and discussions about hotel accommodation for the esCarpade.
A great day was had, and Booger Mobile continues to move forward... There are a few items that are holding up progress at this point, but once they are sorted out, hold on to your hats because it's all going to happen quickly!!!
