Well in my five minutes on the Gran Sport I installed the wipers that I bought at the REAL parts store on the way home from work. And the light bulb for the interior light. I love those lights on the back interior trim on the A body converts. I ran into another one of those times when the modern bulb doesn't fit in the original socket because they are a tiny bit bigger than the old ones. I took a die grinder with a rotary file and ground off a little of the tab that the socket uses to hold into the housing. Zip Zip, done deal, light bulb fits.

We are talking a jar of change, you rolled them up? I have a large glass jar that my father gave me. It has a business card of his at the bottom where he wrote on it "I remember when this jar full of change paid for our vacation". I have lived by that and made it a little tradition to collect change like that and then roll it up a week or so before vacation and then even though we are spending a lot more than my dad did going camping we will do something like buy a souvenir or something with that money in his name.

Just like working on your car only five minutes a day WILL get it done better than not working on it at all, saving change like that WILL get you the money to do it, it just takes a while.

No lifts going in the basement. Gotta dig two holes at opposing corners of the house so a soil engineer can test the load bearing capacity for my proposed construction plan. Not sure if my foundation size will be big enough with the soil that its in.

If its not, I will have to show the wife the report and tell her the renovation is off.

Don't none of you wise guys go and tell her we can use siding instead of bricks. She'll never know. More hot rod time if I don't renovate.

Would have been my guess too if I seen someone making holes in their floor just for something to do.

Spent the day shooting primer and paint on my swap meet cooler I found. The original color was a red wrinkle paint, but the paint I used didn't wrinkle as well, so a bit smoother. Should make it easier for the pinstriper to do his thing on it later.
Once it's dried enough to handle, I can reinstall the bails for the handle, and the Falstaff bottle opener on the end.

Neat, I have a real nice vintage cooler up in the attic I need to get it down for the next time I go to a show in the Rambler.

Today I didn't work on my car, but I did a car thing. I started teaching my 15 year old son Nick how to drive in the Rambler in our high school parking lot! It was an absolute blast! He was giggling the whole time. He said he wanted to learn in the Rambler because it was a manual transmission and he wanted to know how to drive one. He did real good, I am so proud of him!
