Good going- that entry wall is the toughest thing to get out. Don't be afraid to put your back against the dash and give it a good mule kick. You might already have some, but cuttung wheels will really blast those bolts out.

One of these babies will be a real use as well

You'll find a million uses for it.

Oh you have No Idea how much FUN I had trying to get that @#*U%@#($^&^@*#) thing out!
Check out the video of it at http://www.youtube.com/user/TygerCub You're gonna laugh. Trust me.

Yeah, there are a couple of bolts hidden inside the support post in the aisle. I didn't have any high explosives, so had to resort to a grinder and my favorite "fine adjustment percussion instrument", a.k.a. the hammer! Stupid wall is finally out.

Re: TygerCub's Project

BFH is also a "technical term" as well. Just like the other technical terms that I heard Tyger use in the vids like "GACK" and "ICK".

When I was in the Air Force I was a supervisor in the trailer shop maintaining the trailers that haul the bombs to the aircraft. We were required to wear safety glasses when working underneath the trailers. Kind of a "DUH" thing but anytime I caught the boys under a trailer with no glasses I would grab an 8 lb lead shot BFH and give the deck a big WHACK!! When they whine from underneath about me getting dirt in their eyes I always told them that if they had their safety glasses on it wouldnt have gotten in their eyes now would it??? So, the BFH can also be used as a training tool as well.

I think I LIKE BFH's!

At the shipyard we used to call our 10lb mauls "percussion adjusting instruments". Smaller hammers and deadweight mallets were "fine tuning percussion instruments". Hahahaha!

I have to admit to "repurposing" many tools during my time on the waterfront. Crescent wrenches and vice grips are awesome pry bars and hammers. Philips head screwdrivers are decent punches. And a folding tape measure (or bolt) is the perfect tool to reach out and touch someone from amongst pipes in the overhead - especially when they're under the catwalk of the inner bottom and can't get to you faster than you can climb down and run above deck!

Ah... those were the days! When I was young and fit and could pull myself into the overhead without a ladder...
Sometimes when it's cool out, and the weather's nice, I miss those days. Then we have summer here and I remember the hell of being building a ship from the 21'9" level.

Re: TygerCub's Project

Primitive Pete? Nope. Don't know 'im. Never met 'im. Can't say az I ever saw 'im either.

Repurposing tools became an artform on the waterfront. Ideally, your work mate was supposed to bring any tool you couldn't stuff in your own bag. But few mates were trustworthy enough not to "accidentally" put one of your tools in his bag. There were only two guys in my crew I trusted not to walk off with my stuff, but we only got to work together on one or two really big projects. Actually, I may rag on the guys that I worked with, but they really were a good bunch of guys that treated me right. A girl hears all kinds of horror stories before working at a job like that. But once I showed them I was there to work, not to play games and flirt, they let me be "one of the guys" so to speak. I'm really proud to say there's a couple dozen or so pieces of the USS Ronald Regan with my name somewhere under the paint and insulation! And in one or two places, a lunchtime sketch or two - though someone would have to climb WAY into the overhead to find them.

After a couple of years as an apprentice on the waterfront, I made it into the advanced apprenticeship and into an office... where I promptly started working on my current matronly figure.

I do miss building things. I think that's why I'm so dedicated to getting BOB in shape. The challenge of turning a drawing into reality gave me a lot of pride on the job. Hopefully, I can do just as well with the bus. BOB won't be able to float... or have cannons... or shoot off any missles... but he'll still be one stout fellow!

You just brought to mind the motor home from the movie Stripes with Bill Murray!
