How 'bout a monovalve for my ;83???

BTW, how's it going out there? Getting enough help is the stripping/storage?

Good luck

Get copies of his pictures if you can - not only to post here(!) but for your own records. Suggest the most advantageous angles showing exactly how it is and how hard you've worked and how well you've done.

The worst part is all the trash my brother is staying with me he was supposed to be cleaning but instead he was piling trash from other jobs
I have pictures from the very beginning before I started cleaning and current progress pictures and all the pictures of the weekly progress

Where are the pictures?

It's not like you're buried in work or anything.

yeah, um time is short, but I'll attempt to post some soon.
I tried to get copies of the pics they shot today, but no dice. they are only for their records...

the inspector did come today.
very friendly man. he seems to think that I'll have until the end of october to get serious progress accomplished.
he even warned me about potential issues if other complaints were to arise. and told me how to avoid it.
he told me that a privacy fence needs nothing but a $25 permit, and can be no higher than 8' and it can be DIRECTLY on the property line if I like. and no issues with the pretty side of the fence facing my yard.
he said that any cars not registered and insured need to be in a totally enclosed structure... and no structures can be built until I'm in compliance with city codes.
I asked about rail car boxes, and he said it'd be a structure, and would require a permit, and no permits can be obtained without being in compliance...

I must that seems backwards to not allow a structure to be built to get into compliance. You need a bigger team of people. Wish I could have stayed longer and been more of a help.

Are you holding any more tear down parties? Next weekend possibly? I'd be willing to work on a KP for the weekend of the 7th if there is place to crash.
