It was a long 60 hour work week and I needed a little therapy so early today loaded up the power tools (inc. my new milwaukee sawzall santa brought me)and went to the shop and cut stuff off of the parts van. Man do I feel better. Bill

I have "an eager to gnaw something" sawzall too.It makes quick work of most any project.
It seems whenever I take it out I go way too far. http://www.vcvc.org/ubb/smile.gif(Once, I had the water off for two days)...

Be real careful with the nose on that van!
I still might get that from you...

van-itti I will be carefull the cuts I made didn't touch the nose at all as a matter of fact I cut the floor up high in preperation of the nose coming off do let me know at some point if you do want it so a guy would know where to cut,otherwise I am going to cut her off level with the bottom of the winshield and possibly make a bar out of it.

Had access to a plasma cutter but opted for the sawzall cause I am no good at it yet! Bill

I can't believe how clean it is around that area. I think I would enjoy tearing down one of these vans. I think it looks kind of cool as a flatbed. That has to be noisy cutting that van up.
