Nice call on the red light. That would be really submarine like. That was the only bulb I had on hand so I do need a better bulb. That's just a plain old 60W bulb.

I went ahead and paid for the month of photobucket and I am migrating pics over to imgur. I should be able to get all the pics moved in a months time. Otherwise, it's a work week so I won't be doing much to the cooler. I do have a long weekend coming up for the holiday so I expect to be on it all weekend, except for Saturday night as Paulie is having a cheap beer party at his house, whatever that means.

Also, I got a call from the HOA guy. He wanted to come over and take pics of the shed before my meeting with the architectural board on July 9th. I was hoping to hammer out the cooler before that meeting so that they couldn't do much in terms of halting construction. Let's hope I can blow him off all week as I have a short week followed by a 4 day weekend to work on this.

So I had a slow day at work and managed to migrate all the pics to Imgur. It took awhile but I had it down there towards the end. Screw Photobucket!

And here I am happy if I get time to attach my new drill to my Monster Mill.... You are doing a phenomenal job! I can already see you moving into the cold room during the hot(ter) months!

I am pushing to get this done ASAP because the HOA guy wants to come to take pics of the SHED. I don't think he is aware of the cooler yet. He might just schit out his left nut if he comes over and sees both.

Indeed. All for the low cost of 2.99.

I also deleted a bunch of older pics to reduce the bandwidth so they can't kill it again for threads other than this one. Screw those bastiges!

I inadvertently deleted a few ones I didn't want to delete of my old 80/20 brew frame. My apologies to those of you who were interested in that. My advice is to skip the 80/20 and go stainless. You'll never see your cross members anneal and start to bend under load.

Again I left a couple hours early to try and get a few things done. G. Greg is at the taphouse getting drunk so he won't be of any use tonight. That's OK though as it's a mellow night.

Started flashing the seams:



More about an hour later:



What you cannot see is that besides caulking the seam between each panel, I am running a bead of PL Premium Advanced along each side of the seam to bond the flashing to the cooler panel. Then I am screwing them in with sheet metal screws, which bite pretty well for future reference.
