  • advCo: Good to hear, I'll be doing a shower in the bathroom next year probably.
    Jul 16, 2018, 10:53:00
  • advCo: We haven't picked out the tiles yet. Either subway tile or those premade 1'x1' sections with the small tiles
    Jul 16, 2018, 10:53:40
  • Maritime: Those are both easy, if they are glass they need the right motar and clean wall behind as you can see through but ceramic is a breeze
    Jul 16, 2018, 11:41:53
  • advCo: Ahh yeah i didnt think about that
    Jul 16, 2018, 11:55:15
  • advCo: All new drywall painted white but i'm sure I'll get some concrete on there when I pour the counter
    Jul 16, 2018, 11:55:42
  • Maritime: You'll have to scrape the concrete off then touch up the paint if tiles are glass or you'll see the flaws behind. You'll need the white mortar too
    Jul 16, 2018, 11:59:43
  • advCo: Good to know
    Jul 16, 2018, 12:43:02
  • advCo: I'll be sure to keep that in mind when picking out the tile ;)
    Jul 16, 2018, 12:43:11
  • Maritime: yep, most of the stores are good at telling you what you need mortar, grout wise when buying the tiles.
    Jul 16, 2018, 13:00:44
  • advCo: The home depot I have is full of morons
    Jul 16, 2018, 13:01:38
  • advCo: By the way, I did finally get the 360 sold. Had a bunch of things go wrong and an intake leak but was able to fix it by making some new gaskets and yamabond
    Jul 16, 2018, 13:57:06
  • Maritime: Ha, saw that on FB, good you got it gone since you were not riding it.
    Jul 16, 2018, 14:17:20
  • Maritime: I find there is usually one good store in an Area, either HD, Lowes or a smaller local. there will be the one that has the good staff
    Jul 16, 2018, 14:18:06
  • Maritime: Or go on the manufacturers website and read what they require for the prep, and installation LOL
    Jul 16, 2018, 14:18:46
  • advCo: Yeah, took it on a short 5 mile ride yesterday before they came to pick it up. Made me regret letting it sit for so long.
    Jul 16, 2018, 14:20:15
  • Maritime: Yep, I got to ride the CX for an hour to deliver and felt a little sad to let her go but I didn't need 2 bikes so similar and the GL is the keeper of the pair
    Jul 16, 2018, 14:21:44
  • Maritime: I hope to have some $$$ this fall to grab a dual sport project for the winter
    Jul 16, 2018, 14:22:25
  • advCo: It went to a good home. Young kid he wants to clean up all the paint and probably make it his own
    Jul 16, 2018, 14:24:47
  • Maritime: Same here, he wants to make it his with new paint and some other changes but needed a solid runner
    Jul 16, 2018, 14:46:49
  • advCo: I got 2 dual sport projects, just need to get em running haha
    Jul 16, 2018, 14:59:37
  • advCo: Got some dude coming to look at the TS100 parts bike I have today. Was going to part it but I just dont have the time or motivation lol
    Jul 16, 2018, 15:03:53
  • Maritime: Ha, I feel ya, I have a damn virago I need to finish and get out of the shop but just have been too busy to get to it. I am hoping to get started on tearing the motor down for the 3rd time tonight
    Jul 16, 2018, 15:19:10
  • advCo: Yeah I hear that. I'm just happy I can focus on the kitchen 100% now and get it knocked out. The CB360 has been ongoing since I started the project so its a big weight off my shoulders.
    Jul 16, 2018, 15:23:19
  • advCo: Thats someone elses Virago, right?
    Jul 16, 2018, 15:23:40
  • Maritime: Yep, been paid for it, went to final tune the carbs and the fucker siezed again.
    Jul 16, 2018, 15:27:15
  • Maritime: it's losing oil to the rear head for some reason and I need to figure that out. I may not be able to but I'll get it back together with the new head and had it over for them to find another shop to figure that part out if I can't
    Jul 16, 2018, 15:28:20
  • advCo: Ugh, that sucks man. Sounds like a tough issue to diagnose too
    Jul 16, 2018, 16:07:08
  • Maritime: There are a coupled of easy ones it could be, after that is split cases and dig into oil pump etc. and I am not going there
    Jul 16, 2018, 16:12:56
  • Maritime: I hope it's that the previous guy swapped the banjo on one of the lines and the holes not lined up. correctly
    Jul 16, 2018, 16:13:36
  • advCo: Get 'er done and send it
    Jul 16, 2018, 16:27:10
  • Maritime: Ha, will do
    Jul 16, 2018, 16:27:28
  • advCo: Sucks having stuff like that on your to do list and no time to do it
    Jul 16, 2018, 16:33:58
  • Maritime: Yep, especially when you've already done it twice before.
    Jul 16, 2018, 16:34:35
  • advCo: Even worse. That';s how I felt about cleaning the tank on the 360
    Jul 16, 2018, 16:45:18
  • Maritime: Morning, didn;t get to the damn bike last night.
    Today at 08:48:08
  • advCo: mornin'
    Today at 09:09:13
  • Maritime: how'd the counters look after removing the forms?
    Today at 09:16:10
  • advCo: Pretty darn good overall. Had a leak in the form so theres a couple spots that aren't as smooth as I'd like along the edges but other than that it looks great
    Today at 09:29:54
  • Maritime: Cool, can you patch and polish the off spots?
    Today at 09:38:46
  • Maritime: Or use an epoxy?
    Today at 09:38:58
  • advCo: Yeah, i think I'm gonna use some sandy mix w/epoxy mixed in for adhesion. Its only like a 18" area. Was talking to Irk about it yesterday
    Today at 09:42:43
  • Maritime: Cool. I figured there was a way to fix minor flaws, I've done big concrete work and had some form issues and we've fixed them with different things depending on the issue
    Today at 09:55:58
  • advCo: Yeah, I'll figure something out. I've done a lot of floors but nothing for interior use like this, its a bit more delicate
    Today at 09:57:01
  • advCo: Tried to get some pics last night but the lighting is not the best
    Today at 09:57:15
  • advCo: I'll post em in the "build this week" thread
    Today at 10:01:38
  • Maritime: Cool. look forward to seeing them
    Today at 10:17:25
  • Maritime: They look pretty good, good crisp edge on the waterfall side
    Today at 10:21:31
  • Maritime: Do you need to seal them? I can't remember, I looked at doing these but Jill said no so I stopped reading up on all the process
    Today at 10:22:28
  • advCo: Yeah, sealing is super important cuz of the porosity of the concrete. I have an acrylic sealer and a polish, so it should have some gloss but not that 'wet' look of epoxy
    Today at 12:11:11
  • Maritime: Cool. I figured.  Just like the stone tile we've installed all over. Has to be sealed and then done again 5-6 years later
