With a little luck, they should be painted, color sanded and buffed by next weekend. In Brian's words. . WaaHoooo!!
Momma just brought me a Toddy for the Body. Good way to end the day.
I admire that but am not envious cause the flip side is that repetition makes you sharp as a knife. Of course I fall in love with every car I do and get crap for trying to do too much but the practice will help me later when I'm in my garage getting two doors done in a couple days, cause if I didn't have that goal in dream of doing my own I'd go crazy fighting the boss on repairs. So in a way I'm envious of the fact you get to take your time but at the same time I'm taking a step that will help me be more efficient when I'm working on MY time. When you are in the rat race as DB says(and he's right!) you have to blur your vision and picture yourself on a cherry boat with pin up models and all the beer you can drink.
