No, this post is not about a horror film psycho running about generally being a pain in the ass, but more about the horror of a hangover I had this morning! The hangover was from the team night out that was a real good evening and to be with work colleagues that I also call my friends. I had a day’s holiday owning to me which was just as well because the older I get the more light weight I seem to be getting where this hangover lark comes into the scenario. Alas my self-inflicted pain started to ease at about ten o’clock(ish) this morning. I decided to make good use of my time off by making some small but subtle changes to my humble little blog, this obviously meant that the car had a break just for today. As for the new blog? Well everything is still there and no unexpected changes for the style, layout and functionality, but I wanted to freshen the pages up a little if that makes sense. The blog should now be a little easier to read while maintaining the darker theme and background. The side bar has been tidied up with a few little tweaks made as well. If you can’t tell the difference but it somehow looks a little difference, then I think I have achieved what I set out to achieve, plus it also gives me an excuse to use this picture I found on the net which I quite liked. The changes were not just for the sake of it but it’s something that has been personally bugging me and just looked cramped for some reason. I still haven’t managed to put my finger on it as for the reason why it looked cramped but the feel of the blog just felt like it. during my search for the right theme many were trawled through, some even reminded me that the residual effects of the hang were lurking in the background when faced with gaudy and garish designs! I think I have chosen well from the WordPress themes.
I hope the new (more subtle) design is better, but please let me know if I should revert back or keep the fresher looking style.
It’s been a busy weekend and a productive weekend at the same time, I don’t get to many of those to be fair. I have made space back in the man cave as the fenders have gone back on the car., Ok, so they are not aligned up yet properly though as I want some nice new bolts to go in the top and the hood rubbers I also need. I have managed to treat the Bumper Stone Guard on the inside (part 1), and completed a nice power tool review. But first,
I need some help:
Yesterday when I put the fenders back on I noticed a little bit of surface rust creeping back onto the top of my rocker covers, I intend to replace these with chrome ones anyway but for now I wanted to keep the natural buffed steel look. Does anybody have any ideas on how to seal them from the elements and keep the natural look? If so can you give me some ideas on the forum pages or click here for the hyper link to go straight there.
My manager has been saying that I have needed help for well over a year now, *shakes head* LoL.
Thanks for that Alli. 😀
Anybody got any hangover cures? If so go to the Forums and Discussions page to leave me some tips or others who may need them this Christmas! Or click on the link here for hyper link straight there.
I have published a tool review of the Dewalt Orbital Sander D26453 which is a really great piece of kit. Check out the review here or go to the tools review section.
Last but not least
I have tweaked a few little bits on the blog too,I have put the Forum and discussions link at the top next to the “home” button. Hopefully that will make it easier to get to the sister site.
I’m not sure what my head is doing, it’s telling me it is absolutely fine to stay up late and work on my blog!
The next morning I feel like somebody has had a rave in my head and I then hurt. No it’s not a hang over before I get some sarcastic comments back thank you!
I call it devotion to my readers, so I am posting a review of one of my favourite manuals, it’s not to pricey and is a great upgrade based book with some classic elements within it, such as body alignment etc. Take a quick look at “Classic Mustang Restoration, Repair & Upgrades” in the book section or click here.
This weekend I intend to upload a few pics of the new bumpers, my Christmas presents from the wife. I should also do the underseal Carplan Tetroseal review as well to see what it’s like. Follow the link to the forum pages and leave a reply for any ideas on underseal or anything that you want to see discussed. Halfway through the week, that means we’re on a wind down to weekend!
