What a great weekend we just had while set up at the Hog Happenin in Lincolnton NC.  This was our 5th year set up for this event and it keeps getting bigger and better every year.  We did have a few problems though. Friday evening we were rolling right along and all of a sudden we started losing air pressure.  Checked out the compressor and it was running just fine but wasn't pumping no air.  Then seen the compressor jumping up and down on its stand where the bolts had worked loose.  Got those tightened up and cranked her back up and still not compressing air then saw the broke fitting.  This was at 8:45 PM.  9 PM I was on the road to run down the parts to fix it and got back to the hauler around 11:30PM  Got her all back together with the exception of a few bolts but it was together enough to test it out.  Working like a champ so started putting the rest of it back together and BAM!  Another part broke.  It's now past 12:30 AM.  So, wasn't no fixing her now so went back to the hotel room and got on the internet looking for tool rental places and found one that opened at 7 AM.  Got to bed around 3 and was back up at 6.  Called the rental place on the dot at 7 and they didn't have one at the nearest location but there was one about an hour away.  On the road at 7:15 and made it back to the event around 8:45. We wasn't supposed to open till 10 but when I got back our first customer was standing there and 5 mins later another walked up.  Got the rented compressor up and running and all was good till we started on the first seat.  The compressor was regulated to 90 PSI and our tools require 120 PSI to work properly so what usually would take 45 mins was taking twice that long.  It made a long day longer but we still had a great time and met a lot of good people.  Can't wait to get back down there next year.

Things at the shop have been hopping and to add to our normal seat work the bag liners have been kicking too so we have been extremely busy trying to keep up with everything going on.  Normally this time of year we are 6 weeks out but we have added to our schedule to keep this down and currently we are about 4 weeks out which is super good with very little wait time to get seats in here to be worked on.  But as I say that I do want to point out that our turnaround time is still overnight because we only need the seat the day before its scheduled date then the next day it is completed and shipped back.

Well as luck would have it I have to get back to work that will be a wrap to this update so as always, till next time be safe and enjoy the ride.
