The "What Did You Work On Today" thread
 
4 hour work day for me at the shop. Used the time to do a valve body swap on a '01 Jetta 1.8t auto .... I successfully installed a transbrake on the car .... that however wasn't my intention.

Its in 2 gears at once in park, all other gears (R/N/D/2/1) are forward gears.... they all seam to be first gear.

I have it torn back down most of the way. Tuesday I'll actually get the VB back out and see whats up.... but part of me wants to take it out for a test drive the way it is just for the fun of it.

Finished another section of the floor in the Rampside cab. I am having to remove and replace sections since every thing has to be formed from flat 18 gauge metal. I am about half done and will finish up next week since it is time to celebrate Christmas with the family.

Merry Christmas.

I'm helping my neighbor, doing some bodywork on a 58 Chevy Impala. I've a few weeks off, I enjoy doing bodywork when I'm not under the gun to get it done. This will be a nice car, 350 horse crate 350. Not much rust, floors have been replaced, time for bodywork and assemble. Merry Christmas to all, Dan

Spent several hours in the garage cleaning, organizing, getting the summer lawn equipment winterized and put away, snow blower was checked over and is awaiting use, and tested the blast cabinet out.

What I did today...
 
All I did today is wire up the lock-up kit for my 700r4 in my 49. Put in a tiny led light that will light up every time the converter locks in too. :D

Working outside int he rain is no fun. The older you get the worse it gets. I find it difficult to do anything without a lift.
Used to do the laying on my back stuff in the rain, snow, cold etc. Probably why I cant move for an hour in the AM now.

Ain't that the truth, I feel my Minnesota upbringing in my shoulders every time I get out of bed. Winterizing yard equipment? Ohhhh, that's right, you don't have to mow in the winter. :D Mine is in need of a trim. Time to go help the neighbor, time to fix some ridges in the roof.

My worst job I think I ever did was putting a starter in my mothers Vega after a snow storm. Being young and stupid(17), laying in the snow in Jeans and a t-shirt in 10 degree weather. After I was done my hands were to cold to turn the key in the ignition.
