    Ahhhhhhh......My first day off from work this week! Took a little nap this afternoon, then spent two hours wire wheel / brushing sally's "new" rear end. Got 98% of the heavy crud off, in the next day or two I'm gonna borrow my neighbor's power washer and finish the job before I metal prep and POR15 it.

    In my packages the other evening were sally's new "legs" to go with her new shoes.....rear leafs, front coils, KYBs, rear drum rebuild kits.........I might have her rear ready to go under her before the weather will cooperate enough for me to start working on her front clip again! (Rain Delay Today!)

    No kidding. What really sealed it was finding out yesterday that the crank was 020/020 undersized.

    Other than that I've been busting my hump reassembling the old 302 to back in my '89. Took two hours to literally chisel the intake gaskets off the heads

    I am really surprised you did not just drive up there and save yourself a ton of shipping costs.

    I think I prefer to have $10,000 worth of lawn art. And drive a $3000 beater.

    So, No. I havent worked on my car lately
    :D


    Actually, I have more free time lately. So I will probably start prepping the motors to stuff into my truck and car.
    I havent found the motivation button yet. :(

    Just picked up the shortened Driveshaft for COBRASK8. A whopping 10 1/2 inches long!

    Dash wiring is also done!
