Hello everybody, Good day to you! Welcome back! Glad you're here! So I'm in my backyard. Yep at the con Xbox and I'm trying to load more equipment. Uh I had to drag this thing up onto the trailer. No. I didn't do it by myself. Uh I have a healthy Helper but he's camera shy. he's hanging out in the back. I'm not gonna tell you who it is, he's grinning at me right now. Uh, anyway, we we manhandled this thing up. Canceled right there you said the man word. We manhandled this thing into the trailer. Uh, we're gonna strap it down. hopefully it stays and doesn't follow through my newest floor and uh, we're gonna hit the road, drive this thing across town and then unload it. so stay tuned. This is going to be a very good video. You strap clicks. Oh there we go. So far so good. you chicken poop. There we go. You hear that? yeah baby are you doing? Are you getting the Seaweed off? Yeah. All right. get it out of there yellow seaweed out. Thank you. It's from the pond. Is it stuck? We'll get it all out. Uh, that'll work. I think for now ish. Maybe we're gonna find out it's either gonna fall over or it's not right? Yeah, okay. we got extra straps on so there's there's four primaries. those are the red ones. Then we've got a backup which loops around to that side and then another back up which loops around to that side. And then I have this one. So just in case I Gotta hit the brakes a lot. that one's there too. So I think it's going to stay I guess we're gonna find out. Let's Roll Woohoo there are stockings the engine I gave you guys mileage last night so you're not getting it again today. Deal with it. you're gonna work. Yeah, it's gonna stay. for now, let's get out of here. Okay, we're off exiting the driving way. Who's that? What are you doing here I don't know you Oh I like his trailer I need one of those and his little um, we're back I Feel like I just left but now I'm back again. You know I'm thinking uh, I'm thinking right here would be a good spot for that compressor because it's outside. It might mitigate Some Noise a little bit. You know somebody said that they can see the ridge is on your key and then top of your key to a video because there's only like certain like x amount of ways to make the key work or whatever and I'm going these. Uh, that's insane. That's intense. but I guess there's a special set of skills for everyone. Hello over here. Lumens powering on. Yeah, hey, it's just the way I left it. It's good. Okay, so here's I'm thinking in order to get that out without having to manhandle it is I'm gonna pull the truck up over here and then I can use this forklift, pick it up, drive it over here, drop it off in that corner. That's the plan. so let's see if this is gonna work. Restarting Z engine. Let's go ahead and pull up and get out of the middle of the driveway. Here is either going to work or it's not. so let's find out right about. Let's see. here's probably good sweet parking is the auto. All right. Forklift time. We need this. restarting the engine. Here we go. Moving on out. Three. All right? Okay, that one does that. That one does that. Okay I know how this works right? Loud noises? Let's get out of here. fight. Freeze Wow. You guys haven't seen me drive a forklift since I Worked at the dealership. it's been a while. I'm like four kids. They make things easier to do. Yeah, now we're cooking. Move it up. I'm not gonna pick it up with the boom. We're gonna get in real close and just tie it around there. We go right up in there all right time to strap it in. Parking Brake Powering down. Hmm. okay. we've got two straps on this side and then the chain wrapped around that side over the hook. so we're just gonna give this a straight up. We're gonna back up Let it down so it's more safer and then we'll spin it around, pull it forward to its new parking space. That's the plan. Stopping is the engine all right. It's got a bit of a lean chains tied over here. It's good. That's good. That's good. Okay, you're doing it wrong. Let's go for Glory Moving on up. This is way easier to move with Machinery Coming down. Foreign clear the roof. so oh that's so close up top. make it only got another inch or so of down. Yeah, a little bit more down just to make sure. Well that's the other way. we went down. not up there we go. I Think we're gonna make it some gas. We made it moving back up. Clear the guide wires, clear the crane. We're not going to clear the crane I Don't think freaking say right about here. Parking the forklift, parking brake. What do you think? Yeah, yeah, it's good. All right. Levers work without me sitting in it? Yes they do. I Love deleted safety features and heavy machinery. There we go stay. Woohoo got it! JK uh car jack to help you push it Forward um or just to get it in in its Corner um now I'll just rock it in, it'll slide I think I hope I guess we'll find out because I don't want to I'm not gonna lift it again. Foreign 's smashed in. This thing fell over once it fell over on the tool truck. it was not. Uh, he didn't have it strapped down very well and the dude was driving and then it fell over. Save me 500 bucks but this back got bent and that got bent. but still we dropped it. Not everybody can haul my heavy loads I don't know. All right let's go park this thing back where it goes. Mm-hmm yeah he had a keep going. Oh no no. go in. go in right right there. thank you sir and parking brakes. It's sweet foreign. all done with you for now. Uh I think that looks pretty good there. I Like that spot. What do you guys think? you know the drill? Let me know down the comment section below. Okay everybody I am packing up this show. We're getting out of here. it's it's getting late in the day. not really. but okay, it's not early I need to go do the voting thing. Today's voting day it is Election 30 and I'm not going to miss that. So I'm going to close up and vacate the premises. We've got the compressor I Think this is where it's going to live. Um I have to wire it still I haven't done that yet, but it's going to go through the wall, up and over to the panel that's on the wall over here. We did a lot of work with these lights I Know you can't tell right now, but it's It's getting there slowly, but surely everything that you see is now on a switch instead of plugs. With the exception of these lights over here, this area is as organized that I can get it. I put some lights underneath of the metal support right here I'll do another string under there that way that's all lit up and then I'll put some eight Footers in upstairs under ceiling later on, but that's for another day. So uh, this is, uh, functioning as much as I'm going to get to function for right now. Uh, where's my? those are all on a power circuit or a power strip? still? I Know power strips are everywhere, but it'll work for the time being. Six fan power down I think I needed to show you guys, uh, some other goodies. Yeah I did talk about this in uh, yesterday's video. Hang on. let's get this out. loud. Noises: Tie rods. Remember the tie rods not tie rods. Uh. Pitman arm Idler Arm: There we go I Can't get those words out properly. I'm terrible that is. That's the upgraded HD idler arm bracket that's going on. also a PPE or a PSC part I can't read it. Stamping's weird. Let's just say PPE yeah that's PPE Okay, I don't know them but they do make heavy duty stuff. That's the big idler. This one bolts onto that one and that bolts to the center link and then this one. that's the Pitman Yeah, let's make sure this fits. Come here good morning! I Don't need the warning anymore. So violent. A little bit of finesse goes a long way sometimes. Smarter, not harder there. Just gonna make sure that this lines up appropriately before I take it all apart later on and it does. Hooray! Makes me happy I Like it quick. So yeah, we're we're nearly at a state of potential operative. What's the word? I can almost operate. We're getting there. there we go. More than one word. That's how I'll do it. So I can nearly operate effectively in this building and that's good because I have a customer arriving tomorrow morning and I hope I got everything that I need to to service said vehicle except for more lights I'm gonna need more lights. Oh wait, hang on, hang on I forgot the under glows are back on again. Yeah fancy. but I got this weird shadow cast thing going on right here. so I need lights up there to make that go away because I can't see what's inside of my drawers powering down and even the bag says we're done no more. All right guys. I'm gonna listen to the bag in the glove and we're calling this one quits. Finalized light powering down and oh, this is the cool part I Got a lot of these on switches now. Yes! So uh. That being said, as always, thank you for watching this video. Hope you enjoyed this video. If you did enjoy this video, you know the drill. let me know about that.

    To break in you just need to drill out the lock cylinder . Takes 30 seconds. Don't worry about someone seeing your key. A cheap alarm system would add a lot insurance for your expensive tools.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Burgess says:

    Good way to get that compressor stolen.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johan Meischke says:

    That is one v loud compressor

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eldon Howard says:

    Have you locked things down yet with another hurricane coming? Or is the hurricane not so bad and you don't need to worry about it?

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Coincidental RV Adventures says:

    You might want to turn that compressor so you can service the belt. You probably have already thought of that. Just an observation from Spokane WA.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Dyer Sr says:

    Ray work smarter, should have used the tail gate for a headache rack (or wall) then it wouldn't fall over when you tie down.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Tervo says:

    Good luck Ray keep um coming!!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars yoyodud67111 says:

    Please post a video of your first repair when the shop opens. Would be great to look back

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CAM NEILSEN says:

    You may not get your truck in with the compressor outside the door? Maybe on the high bit inside the door on the right

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jae Blaze says:

    the ability to use photoshop and a 3d printer is enough to copy a key.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Simpkins says:

    How can you have THAT many straps and NOT say it? You’re a dad, you have to say it! It happens right after you test the strap (and optionally check what note you’ve tightened the strap to). Everybody, say it with me. “That ain’t going nowhere!”

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nyllet says:

    You should probably put that garage door on a motor!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daddyoh says:

    It would be better placed inside on the rt side of the door.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daddyoh says:

    leaving your compressor outside someone could steal it.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Mead says:

    Tire equipment?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars greg a says:

    The shop is coming together and looks great! I wish I had the balls to do what you are doing 15 yrs ago! Anyhoo can't wait to to see you back in action and making $.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nyllet says:

    Copying keys is actually disturbingly easy, even more so if you're like me and have a 3d printer

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Mead says:

    Can I recommend that all lights and power and air compressor be routed to a single main switch. One flick when you arrive one when you leave.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bobbg says:

    Insted of shutting down power strips just cut the circuit breaker that runs the outlets. One switch kills everything.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bobbg says:

    Are you Forktruck certified? Lol
    Thats a pice of paper to weed out the fools. I can drive circles around you with a fork truck.

    You do know with the jib crain you can pull a motor. Just need the trolly and lift.
    Unless it has one, but that jib Crain looks pretty light duty.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pillsburied says:

    Enjoying seeing this thing come together. Will you be getting A/C and tire machines? I know they are expensive and you need 2 A/C machines.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BillFromAZ says:

    Tip: when you buy a new place you should always chnage the locks, you don't know how many people have a copy of the key for the existing lock.. if you rent, you should get approval to change the locks.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maxx Michael says:

    who's ever stuff is out there…. they r lucky it's still there……
    hope ur lucky that air compressor is there in 8 hours later 😎

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars he's the Master says:

    That air compressor will be noisy when operating. Putting it next to the overhead door means it will sound worse.
    At many local oil change places (they have it in a basement section ) you can hear it and is loud in the customer's section.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars djamesthree says:

    Locating that compressor outside will help keep the noise it makes out of the shop, the pump kicking on randomly gets annoying after a while and the noise would affect your videos. It will be less secure outside though, and just there beside the door might leave it in the way, but time will tell. A neighbor has one tucked up in a loft outside the shop, it’s out of the way and you can’t hear it from inside the shop. Good luck with it.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bobbg says:

    Its normal to leave the compressor on the factory shipping skid.
    But in this case bolt it to the floor.
    I personally don't think this ones big enough but you'll be ok with it.
    I've thought about using an ac condenser
    As a dryer by putting the air off the pump into the condensers and blowing a fan threw it to cool the air. As it existed install a bleeder chamber then up hill into the compressor tank.
    Some comercial compressor have small versions of this. A ac condensers ment to be used in a high pressure system so its a perfect idea. Just make sure you use high pressure lines and hoses.
    This should remove a lot of moisture out of the air and keep it out of the tank and your tools. Water in a tool can really screw up the system, you can pipe the system using cpvc pipe 1/2" make sure to add drip tubes with a bleeder at every drop. I worked in a big machine shop this was how we plumbed air for the whole shop. The building was originally a train overhaul building it was very long.
    And we ran a lot of CNC equipment in the shop.
    Also bleed your tank daily twice a day morning and before you go home.
    You can also run copper pipe in a coil into a 55 gallon barrel of cold water, this super cools the air so water separates.
    Bolt the compressor down. It will help with the noise, but the calafornia air compressors are pretty quite.
    The tanks are steel with a glass coating inside to help keep down rust like a water heater.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maxx Michael says:

    may want to put no parking g songs for ur part of the business…. that mb van is in ur way

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maxx Michael says:

    your better off keeping that air compressor inside… not outside… it would be gone in a heartbeat

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Issaviic says:

    My 2003 suburban with 204k miles needs the whole front end rebuilt 🤦🏿‍♂️but I'm just a YouTube mechanic 🤣 so I'm gonna have to take it to a shop.

    Anyway great video 👍🏿

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stanley koziol says:

    how does all that stuff stay safe and dry being out side

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dennis Hobson says:

    I think the compressor being put there may be in the way of you pulling cars into the shop.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stanley koziol says:

    hey whos that guy

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Troy S says:

    Im thinking that its going to be in the way when trying to get bigger vehicles in and out

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RK Harm24 says:

    We Ride at DAWN!

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stanley koziol says:

    were you not at the last place when you unloaded the engine or no

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TankGuy3 says:

    No hours read off on the forklift?

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gasselectric says:

    Watch for theft

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stanley koziol says:

    you nonbinary handled it

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rorannerusan says:

    Great job Ray.
