Looks fine. It’s a truck.
Your daughter is black? Don’t tell Dubs.
There is alot of wisdom and truth to this. That was certainly an option, and not a bad one at that. Part of it is the internal desire to fix something I broke. Another part was the truck’s exterior was essentially perfect. Which is no small feat for a 14 year old daily rider.
Man made it, man can fix it.
What's broken about it? Or you worried about appearances? Girly man are you?
Definitely a girly man. I was pissed that I broke my perfectly manicured fingernail as I was hand cranking that 3 ton winch to straighten the bent steel. More of an obsessive compulsive perfectionist.
Actual photo of Brad fixing the crack in his sidewalk. Alex.
Cracks in the driveway and walkways drive me insane. I have repaired them and was not happy. I have busted out whole sections and repoured it myself. That is how I know that I am terrible a concrete work and will pay to have that done.
You don't pour concrete, you place it. Placing concrete is the culmination of much preparation by a number of different trades. It is proper to describe the final act as "the concrete pour".
That is fascinating.
There are two kinds of concrete. Concrete that has cracked.....and concrete that's going to crack. The key is in having the cracks where YOU want them to be.
The Romans beg to differ... Alex.
The Romans used concrete and stucco type finishes before the birth of Christ. Alex's example is the oldest and largest unreinforced concrete structure in the world. Concrete is in a plastic stage when mixed and placed. It has no flexibility once it begins to set and while they might not be apparent immediately, this is when they generally occur. With temperature change comes expansion and contraction and they become visible. Lower water to cement ratio of the mix and slowing the hydration of the mix as well as proper expansion and/or control joints reduce the chances of non-structural cracking. Two mistakes that are common is trying to place too much concrete without adequate labor on hand. The finishers many times will have the mixer driver add too much water to the mix too allow him to work it later in the day which reduces the strength. Too much water will cause the cement to migrate to the top of the surface with the water and the finish will spall or slake off. Another mistake is overworking the mix during finishing. Place, strike off (screed), float, and finish. Proper curing in very warm weather might include a light mist of water to slow the hydration process.
gonna rust like an old tin can....
Care to elaborate or you going to be an asshat like the rest of them and provide nothing useful?
No sir...just being an asshat
It's a lot to ask around here....
Base coat is done. It revealed some minor flaws. I’m tempted to sand it all down and attempt to fix them. But.... I’m not.
Don't do it, chances are you will fck it up more
