Grinding has begun. Here is my attempt at dust control. I can't believe the dust. Fun times.

I thought I would update the status of the Vulture. I still have it and still plan to see the restoration through. I have been very busy completing a cottage build north of Bancroft Ontario. Every spare minute of time I have had for the past year has been spent on interior construction. The Vulture has taken a back seat to this project. As if we didn't have enough to do, we decided to sell our house in June and are scheduled to move in a week's time. Fun fun. The Vulture is being moved to the cottage garage where I hope to work on it instead of the cottage.
Here she is loaded and ready for the move.
