Update is primarily the splash of color and the pot lights for task lighting. I'll get some more pictures up soon, but the phone is kaput. Oh man does the Eight every look like one hell of a state here hahaha

Here is the canvas.

should fit the bill!

Garage Update: Currently state of the garage is a holding cell for garbage and styrofoam. I missed garbage day last week... i'll be holding onto all this for another two weeks! puke. I managed to do some minor drywall mudding/sanding and made three holes to install one speaker... Things are moving incredibly slow and painfully. The garage door opener doesnt want to work(suspect the door is out of balance)and well just the mess. For some reason I am really discourage to tell you the truth, from the garage door opener, to the failed speaker install attempt to missing garbage day.

I'll turn it around, just need some time.

Merry Christmas all! 2014

We wanted a rustic wood dining room table for our new shack, and trying to find one with the right amount of character and not $1,799+tax+shipping+reclaiming fees+arm+leg, was difficult. We found one in Montreal, but it was $2,250. So we decided that we could probably slap one together for a fraction of the cost.

We started out at The Wood Source, and found five reclaimed barn board, for $230. We actually only used four, but had an extra just in case. The shipping on a store bought table alone was the cost of the wood we found. We ended up not using the one in the middle.

So here is a little history to keep my lies in check when I say I've owned a dozen buicks... and definitely more to come. :D

Started with the hand me down from my grandfather, a 1991 Buick Lesabre Limited, baby blue with dark blue vinyl top and dark blue interior. no shortage of blue.
-Next a 1987 Buick Park Avenue from dealer for 300 bucks, also, blue, dark blue vinyl and dark blue interior. It looked the exact same as the 91.
-1990 Buick Lesabre, Grey on grey, turned out to be a parts car.
-1988 Buick Lesabre T-Type, Silver, Found in Hamilton, trailered it back, wanted to keep it, turned into a parts car.
-1987 Buick Lesabre T-type, black, Found in Hamilton, trailered it back, wanted to keep it turned out to be a parts car that fed the Park avenue.
-1989 Buick Lesabre T-Type, Black, found in Toronto and took the train. Drove it back, wanted to keep it, turned into a parts car
-2006 Lexus IS 250 6MT, Had enough of the Buicks. Brand new put 45,000km on it, fun but expensive. Just short of $41k, living at home and had nothing else to spend money on.
-1987 Buick Lesabre T-Type Black, Found in Trois Riviere, trailered it back, fixed the timing chain, and drove it for years. Managed to get 8L/100km still. Died of a shot tranny, and rust was becoming uncontrollable.
-1988 Buick Lesabre T-Type Black, found locally, in very good condition, sold it another enthusiast that is taking great care of it.
-1998 Buick Regal GS, purple on tan. Was obnoxiously loud, lousy on fuel, things were broken, poorly taken care of, but went like a bat out of hell, someone had done a pile of work it. sold it a month later to get into Brittany.
-1988 Buick Lesabre T-Type, White on black cloth. Took a train 4 hours with my brothers, got blasted in quebec city and drove back the next morning. Good times. Worked perfectly, but tore it apart as it was a good candidate for the L67 Swap.
-Pontiac Bonneville SSEI. Bought for 500 with something wrong with it. Bought it for the L67 to swap into the 88 T-Type. Poor thing was subjected to a night of questionable practices, molestation and drunken havoc.
-2009 Mitsubishi Lancer DE(fwd), Electric blue, black interior, manual, it was a car I named Brittany...
-2004 Audi S4, Black on black on V8 6MT. Balls. Super clean, never winter driven example and unmolested, completely OEM. Still driving it in the summer only. Balls.
-2003 Buick Regal LS, sliver with mixed leather/cloth interior, winter snow bank basher. -1998 Audi A8 Quattro. Blue on blue. Smiths old relatives car. Put 6 months of work into it, registered in Jan 2016, and has been smashing snow banks effortlessly since. -2005 Audi A4 3.0 Quattro Auto. Angs car to replace the Civic. Okay not really mine, but I maintain and modify it like its mine! Silver on Black, picked it up with 72,000km for $9,000 and she loves it.

Special shout out goes to the Huff, anytime there is a trailer mentioned, it was him with the trailer helping me out. I'd also hate to see your list.
