My building is already up and closed in (windows and doors) just no insulation or heat.
How low will it be?

I was worried about lower temps when they poured my pad also in January and the guys said we got this. Lol.

there is no damn way id ever drive a school bus. i rode a bus that the kids make drivers quit before the school finally got the balls to kick them off it.

You were one of those guys huh? Sound like you where like my friends. Apparently according to the reprimands my mom showed my wife and me from my school. I was too busy making out in the back of the bus to get in on that.... 😂

You have nothing to worry about as long as the temperatures are above 40 and not dropping. If it's below 40 you need to use insulated blankets to keep the heat in the concrete since concrete produces its own heat as cures. If you're pouring inside your building it might not be an issue since the concrete would probably raise the temperature of the building depending on how big it is. Or you could just pump some heat into it before the pour and it would hold the temperature long enough for the concrete to cure.

so yesterday afternoon, decided to give Erins truck some love. needed an oil change, some interior parts fixed and fix an exhaust leak. i was hoping her truck had the steel tubular manifold on it as you could tell it was cracked.... nope. its was cast. Had a stud at the lower exhaust stud snap and found one was snapped at the head. pulled the manifold and half ass welded it back up to get her by till the new 600 dollar unit showed up 🤮🤮. drilled out and re-tapped the one that snapped (couldnt get a welded nut to pull it out). put a new bolt in as a stud on the lower connection and started putting it back on. Snapped two studs off in the head... i was pissed.. threw it back together as is till tuesday.

cant be easy! least its not a V style engine. im already prepping to having to pull the head to get the damn bolts machined out if i cant get them 🤬

noooo waaaaay. its got 135k on it and im just waiting for it to start adding neutrals. :ROFLMAO:

im hoping it dies about the time i need to change the balance shaft chains out because, ya know, lets put those chains under the flexplate so you have to pull the trans to change them 😑

I waited till 150K to put a cam in my 1500... It's almost 180K now and it didn't go neutral

if it was my truck, it would already be turboed and probably have a built 4l60 or 80 in it. BUT this things is the "reliable transportation" thats gotta get the kids and wife to work/school driving 45 min each way. its been a very good truck and i want to keep it that way. it is tuned thanks to @The Neens and i got 33's under it at stock height but thats about all she will get.
