Cool

We had some snow Neil but its melting. The temp is like 45* today and feels warmer out in the sun. helraz3: I try and do a little something in the garage every week, or so. I am running low on fire wood and can't work with coveralls and winter layers on too. But like I said I try and do something every week.

Houston is a miserable place in the summer--I have 5 tons of AC in my shop just to get it cold FAST when I want to be out there. winter is time for cars, Harleys and being outside--70 degrees here today-- DElightful--we've had a 1/4" of snow in the past 20 years--along with a hurricane or two!

Today it's about 65, sunny. It's usually foggy in the morning, if it's not raining. In the last 2 weeks I've: disassembled the 36 ford coupe, fenders, front end, deck lid, etc. If it's bolted on I've taken it off. Replaced the front fender, hood and bumper on my step daughter's 91 honda accord, took out about 12 dents, sanded it down, off to maaco with the pos. Building a 454 with a buddy for his 71 rs camaro. It'll be a monster. Work is slow, it's fun time. Might make a hell run to Scottsdale thurs for the Barret-Jackson auction, just to experience once. <img src="graemlins/drool.gif" border="0" alt="[drool]" /> Dan
