I'm glad this is called what did you "work" on not what did you "complete" today.
I picked up a new 3rd member for my 9" a few weeks ago and had some time.......so my plan was to swap it out. Couple uncooperative wheel studs, 2 trips to the part store for ujoints--different yoke on the new 3rd, needed to swap out the one on the driveshaft. Couple searches on this forum for driveshaft slip yoke engagement questions.....everything is at least torn apart now--hope to get it all back together tomorrow.

I am BEAT and wasn't going to do anything today.....but you know how that is. I started cleaning up the garage of all the stuff from the dining room/bedroom conversion. I kept going out and setting stuff on the floor during that project so the garage was all but useless. I got a lot done, but still a way to go.
One of my New Years resolutions is to thin this place out. My wife and I have way too much stuff, stuff we don't touch, stuff we plan on doing something with, stuff, stuff, stuff. So I am tossing stuff out as I come across it and it is getting easier and easier.
But along my cleaning today I came across the spare tire and other parts related to the spare for the trailer. Just another project that I collected stuff for and never did. I broke down and make the support for the spare retractor and thought I was going to stop long before it was done as the day wore on and I was about to drop, but I kept on going and got it done! I need to make a mount for the crank somewhere but that's it. Thought I would sleep on that being I didn't have any good ideas.
But it's done, WHOOO HOOOO!

Done welding the firewall except for a few pin holes. Still grinding.
Marked most of the spot welds on the left hand brace at the upper door hinge. It is good to get back to the shop but I am ready to move on. There is probably several days of work to do on the firewall, cowl and toe boards yet. i know patience is a necessity but I am really ready to do something different.

I squeezed in a little time on the bike yesterday and got the rear fender brackets in there. Lot of work and I decided on welding a bolt to the inside of the frame so the fender can be nice an snug. This will the be the last mock up pic before paint.
It looks 10x better without the old fender bracket

I'm sidelined for a few days on the BelAir, so I pulled my 64 Fairlane into the shop to start installing the Vintage Air under dash retro A/C kit. so far I've gotten the compressor bracket fabricated, and have installed the condenser. summer will be here before ya know it.

not cars but it's what I've been working on
My wife is a bellydancer, and has a lot of really big costume jewelry.
So a "finish carpenter" friend of mine, helped me build a giant spinning two sided jewelry cabinet.
The pics only show one side, but the other side matches.
The doors are on the saw horses, after I finished staining them
I mad some custom knobs for the doors out of a set of zills (finger cymbals)
