Thanks Nat. I should have broken down last year and gotten the 7" angle grinder then. I love how it makes short work of the bolt heads. I spent more time fighting with the chair rail bolts and pulling the seatbacks off than cutting heads.

And no worries about the triangles getting dumped. They're in the shed, in storage.

Fibreglass. Why does it have to be fibreglass?



Pulled another ceiling panel this morning, followed by fibreglass. Have I ever mentioned just how much I hate fibreglass insulation?




Found some corrosion on one of the crossbeams


And I think the culprit is this particular screw (ground for the old strobe light?)

No one hates it more than me. I have walked off job sites before due to the crap.

I used a big water hose to turn the dust into goo. Goo don't make you itch, and it won't get into your lungs when wet.

Also if doing a ton of the stuff, a tyveck coveralls coverall in a good $12 investment.

If you're pulling panels from the interior walls, they may be tack welded. Pulling this panel was the result of about an 45 minutes worth of work with a cold chisel and hammer.

And the blue overspray on the grey primer will get repainted with primer later. I know I may be doing things in a haphazard manner, but I do want to get an idea of how its going to be done, and what's going to be needed to get it done. Although there are times I just want to

Don't pull the chair rail panel.
