For those readers who don’t know, I work as an after-school teacher for a non-profit out of Boston, Citizen Schools, at a campus in TX.
My current crazy project, and I’ve done several (guitars, bikes, fences, etc.) involves retro-fitting a 90’s Ford Explorer for the Art Car Parade in Houston.
It’s Spring Break, and a buddy of mine and I busted out the angle grinders and stripped off the previous “artwork” from most of the vehicle. Some pics:
That’s what we got. My co-worker, Josh sitting on the completed driver’s side and a pic of the passenger side. Still some work to do, that’ll be today’s job, if the rain stops.
As I’ve said before. You might think you have the best job in the world. I know I do. Working with students of all ages (I currently work with middle-schoolers and special-needs high school and college-age students) has bee the best decision of my life – I can’t think of another profession which gives back to the community, which connects you to so many people, which just makes you feel like some part of your day matters. I know this isn’t a wood-working blog – but MechanicJocks just isn’t around. I’ll get some wood on her somehow (hint, it should have a tail) just to please the censors.
Here’s the idea, in image form.
-- make it safe & keep the rubber side down.
