    I did not get to work on the Comet this weekend, but I did get something made. Anyone like to guess what it is?

    Some hints... it is NOT:
    an air hockey table,
    an ironing board,
    a cookie cooling rack,
    a hamster cage,

    But it IS:
    automotive related,
    something I hope to use soon,
    something that if it works, would benefit Comet and Maverick owners everywhere! :D

    It is pegboard. You will hang it on the garage wall and hang all kinds of cool tools and such on it!

    I am planning on putting about 6 times as much as that on my walls. Works for EVERYTHING!!!

    Except I don't get the legs....:hmmm:

    Not a sanding or cleaning table.

    It IS pegboard... but it is not for mounting tools onto. And the legs hold it up, silly! What else are legs for? :rofl:

    Well, then, if you dump your catbox out on it, and brush your litter across it, all you will have left is the crap on the table. So it is a "Crap Table"!!!

    So I think I have you figured out.

    A few more hints:

    This is a prototype. If it works, I will make another one out of steel (at-least the top part with the holes in it).

    Also, the bottom of the 'table' is closed... and there will be a hole in it next week. He is what it looks like under the top:

    Good guess! But no. I did not even think of that, now I may need to make two.

    Another hint: The outer frame on the top of the table is removable, like this:

    You got it! Its a vacuum table.

    I am going to learn how to vacuum form our dash pads. Mine will be the test bed. I have researched it, found how-to's and spoke to people about it. Just like what justdashes.com does, but ofcourse not commercially and with much smaller equipment.

    I have learned what materials are used and I have found sources for them. Now its a matter of getting a rig up and doing some initial testing. Hopefully the results will be promising. If I get good at, I want to be able to do dashpads for the guys and gals on the forum. :thumbs2:

    OK, so if it's a vacuum table, where does the cat litter go? :hmmm:

    :D
