Thanks! I'm hoping this one doesn't turn into a disaster, but only time will tell.

@ efjellanger: Ha ha ha, this Colt is different somehow. I put 90-91 Eagle Talon bumper covers, engine, transmission, and AWD drivetrain in it, and I put a Mitsubishi Evoloution III turbo on it. I built the engine with forged internals, and tuned it to handle 30psi of boost on race gas. It does a 1/4 mile in less than 12 seconds (that's quicker than new Vettes and Hemi Challengers by the way) at 120 MPH, and it will travel 60' from a standstill in 1.7 seconds spinning all four tires. It hits about 98-99 MPH in only 1/8th mile, and makes around 400 horsepower.

Attached are before and after photos of the Colt, and a picture of the window frame I just completed.

Just checking in to say so far so good! The GF has been the wife for almost two years now, and the bathroom has not given us one problem ever, other than something was stuck in the knife style drain valve for a while making it difficult to close fully. It has since worked its way clear. I have also stripped and stained the inside of the door so it matches a little better, and got the Colt to do an 11.81 second standing quarter mile.


Hope everyone is well.

It's cool that you dropped by Dayo!! A lot of the regulars on the forum are out in Long Beach, Ca. at a seminar so if you don't hear from them don't feel bad.

I used to run a 67 and 69 GTO at West Palm Beach Speedway back in the day. C/stock. Never won a race. But it was all FUN.

Just shouting out to all you tile guys and girls. The bathroom is still holding water, and the tiles are all attached. I've got some discolored grout around the corners of my shower floor. Any advise on what to do with that? Here's some shots of something I built to hold my TV up. Stone craft on cement board, lumber, stain, and polyurethane clearcoat.

I rotated your pics upright. Phone pictures have a weird habit of not loading to an upright position.

For the shower floor, what products have you been using to clean it?

I just checked in here to look at where my wall joists are for a shower bar install I'm considering. The kind that a second shower head slides up and down on. Anyway here's what I use.

Hey Dayo, nice job on that slate installation! I suppose yours proves that it can be done so it holds up well over the years. Aside from the bit of missing grout, has it held up to your satisfaction?

I was too cowardly so I chose natural stone imitations in porcelain for my two showers.

Yes it seems to be holding up well considering it has been nearly ten years. The tub gets used pretty much daily, and it still holds water. That Hydroban stuff is pretty amazing, because I have literally hosed down the floor to clean it, and nothing leaks downstairs unless water flows into the hallway. Also, when the tub is filled to the rim, we have splashed large quantities of water on the floor with no issues.
