I'm a geek and these are the toys in my garage. Here you'll see me work on anything from a classic Mustang to a functioning replica of K-9 from Doctor Who.

Abandoned red DeLorean. Unfortunately I don’t know anything more than it’s sitting somewhere with the window down and the owner thinks they’ll restore it one day along with that AMC. Yeah…poor girl.

Here’s an article my mom found about a Pensacola Doctor Who fan. The article is from 1996, the day of the premiere for the 8th Doctor’s movie.

Dad gave me a bunch of aluminum scraps from his shop. Most were misstamped snow shovels and two large pieces were miscut interstate signs. I was able to make the plates I needed for both sides of K-9. Tomorrow I hope to cut the spacers to replace the nuts on the inside of each plate. I need to pick up some nylon lock nuts and a slightly larger bolt for the axle. Once I take care of that the drive feet will be finished. Next comes the frame.

I am excited. Finally, next month the Delorean will be 100% mine. I could just plunk down the payment and pay it off right now but I’ve got a budget and I stick to it.

K-9 finally has a few appropriate sounds. I’m no longer stuck with R2 noises. There are a few I’m going to replace and some extras that weren’t ready at the time of this video. There’s one track at the end I just couldn’t resist adding. It’s definitely staying but I think I’m going to edit out the long pause and audio ramp before it starts playing.

I’ve mocked up one side of K-9’s drive foot out of scrap wood. Once I’m happy with the layout I’ll transfer it to some aluminum. I’m also going to cut real spacers from a steel tube. This is based off an R2D2’s foot.

I think I need more clearance on the bottom. There’s maybe half an inch of the wheel below the frame. K-9 might need a bit more than that. I can lower this a little bit with another wheel slot below the first one.

There are so many Mustang photos on my dash today that it makes me miss driving mine. I’m still working on that floor. If I could get 2 days in a row without rain on my days off I’d probably pass out from shock. I wish I had an actual garage to work in.

I finally cut up that busted bed frame I was given. I love free stuff. That little tree frog was guarding the bag with my wheel and metal bits. I named him Rory, the Last Frogturion.

I mocked up K-9’s subframe. Before I weld it together I want to have the wheels and motor positioning done. Drilling the holes on these pieces of frame will be a lot easier than with the frame all welded together. I tried the sonic screwdriver on it but I guess the weld app isn’t working.
