    The red knee pad in the pic is an important tool for knuckle work. :)

    That looks like my grandmother's kitchen floor. It wasn't too far from Austin, either...

    Too far north. Too far east.
    Are you working in your garage or your kitchen?

    I bet it's one muggy son of a gun in Austin right now.

    yeah, my wife was mad when she came home and found the cruiser in the kitchen! :)

    Today was very nice, not muggy at all - great weather today.

    The PO of the house had finished out the garage, it has Mexican tile and brown wood paneling. The one nice thing is the garage has very good florescent lighting in the ceiling, lot of power out lets, phone and cable!

    When it raining out, you have to be very careful - that tile gets mighty slick! All my oils seem to bead up on the tile, or run off and get soaked up by the grout.

    Iam plan on painting the paneling, and floor some time this summer.

    maybe you'll answer my Q here, which went unheeded on the 3FE list --

    what made you decide to do your birfs?

    my 62 has 150K on it and no clicks, but i don't trust them --

    Eric,
    I did reply...:)

    Well my cruiser has 285K, and Iam headed to the 3fe bash in Aug, just decided it was time and they needed to be done. They were not clicking, just wanted to do them before I needed too.

    Also, this is the second half of my nuckle rebuild, I did the driver's side almost a month ago with David Dunbar in houston, and did not have time to finish the other side.

    In my case, some indicator for birf rebuils is some gastket damage or seals .. leaking grease or oil ( to bad !!! ) out is a sign ..

    @ Zcruiser,
    The floor has been scratched up very well and seems to have plenty of friction. When I first jacked the truck up, I was a bit concerned, but we all shook the truck and checked and rechecked the jacks before we began. :)
