As long as I clean up and put away before I leave it will stay neat. The first time I quit and leave everything lying it will go to **** in a hand basket. There is no middle ground.

Yep, you are very right. If I treat it like I do my tool box at work, it stays clean. My tool box is nut job organized and neat. But I have never been able to keep that up at home.

You know what, years ago I made up my mind to never do side work again, and I haven't. It didn't get me rich, all it did was take away my private time, my time with my family, with my own projects. I wish I could have done my brothers truck (it was our dads) but I couldn't, I just couldn't do it again.

It was the best decision I ever made.

I know this is a copy of an old post but it seems applicable.

I think it is time I teach everyone the Lynn Yearwood theory of street rod fabrication. Lynn has been a friend of mine for years. One day he told me he went to the garage every day after work. Maybe he could only stay for 10 minutes but he would go anyway. As Lynn explained, "Even if I don't do anything but put in 2 bolts a day that is 14 a week, 62 a month and 742 a year. I can build any car in 2 years."

Hence, the Lynn Yearwood theory of street rod fabrication.

Yep, it has been working miracles for me! I have just about finished up my Gran Sport since the beginning of the year with this philosophy.

Today the pump looks clean! WHOO HOO, of course I am saving real celebration for a few more days. I did put the top down and removed the mouldings around the top on the quarters that I had neglected to put the clips on! (insert rolling eyes smilie) I didn't find the clips when I put the mouldings on back months ago and figured it didn't use any as it "sort of" held on nice. But after MUCH fight out there this morning (what a STUPID design!) the moulding is in properly and I am thrilled.

Now for a walk with the family along the SF bay and keep an eye on that pump later tonight.

Having spare parts in the garage sure is nice. In wanting to do something instead of just sitting around waiting for the top pump to leak I decided to look into the dash light problem (they weren't lighting) so I changed the fuse and that sort of thing but the wiggling of the knob seemed to do something so I though crap, got to get a new switch. Wait a minute, didn't I have an NOS one I bought from the dealer 20 years ago, yep, had it and yep, problem solved, the dash lights work.

Yupper, I would have used Pugsy's system too. No way I would have found the one I put away.
