Took Barb's S type Jag to the dealer to get the a/c fixed. 3000,00 estimate! I don't think so!!!.......Brought the car home.

Only three days (coats) of polyurethane to go.
Got to climb out the basement window when I finish each coat. Good thing I installed the huge egress window to make my escape.

I built my first staircase last year it wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be, it was actually kind of fun, the railing and balusters were a bit tricky but worth the brain cells it took to finish it up. What I couldn't believe is how drasticly the prices changed for the same exact chinesse parts,(that's pretty much all you can get these days) in some cases they doubled, it makes a big difference when your buying 40 balusters at 4.00 instead of 10.00 it really pays to shop around theres some real crooks out there.

My garage walls are 12" thick at least of storage shelving, stuff against the walls, etc... Floor space is pretty much non existent.
If you will notice my photos are always taken with my Gran Sport or where my Gran Sport parks in the background. That doesn't happen by accident.

I read a great article in a Rod Action or the like magazine back in the seventies about that "first start" and it was so damn entertaining. It basically put into words how you forget all the busted knuckles and rusty bolts, they are gone forever the first time you start it up.

MARTINSR I removed the master cyl last night from the Falcon so we can bench bleed it. That was the first of my "five minutes" in the shop. The other five (or longer) was searching for the misplaced push rod for that master. I about went out of my mind searching for it but finally found it! WHOOO HOOOOO, I then went on my evening walk.

It's so funny how much I have available to me in the old parts world. Nick walked down the street literally 3 blocks from my home to Mustang specialty place and bought a bushing for that brake rod yesterday.
