It was a sunny but cool day for the first work session of the new year. We received a large box of tubing for the shelter (on the left, above), but some of the pieces are the wrong size and will have to be returned. Nevertheless, Bob continued with preparation of the post holes on the sunny side of the car (right, above), that were only partially frozen.
Meanwhile, dismantling of the car interior continued, with removal of the windows and window trim (above, left). Craig (above, right) is carefully stacking what has been removed. We are covering the windows with plastic to provide some protection from the cold, assuming the shelter won't be completed in the near future.
We can use space heaters inside the car to improve the work environment.
