My 5 minute a day plan at work. Got all my shims for the cab mounts finished up tonight. I'll paint them tomorrow. I can't tell you how much better I feel the last few days after getting back on the plan!

I talked with Terry Davis yesterday and we have a tentative plan for me to bring the '66 Chevelle to him in 2 weeks. Now I need to find an enclosed trailer...

Met him at the MCACN show the last 2 years and have talked with him on FB. He doesn't have a web page, but I am including a link to his FB page. Again, it doesn't say much, but he has/had many 66/67 Chevelles and specializes in their restoration to show winning levels. Mine is just a driver, but I will have him block sand the clear coat on mine, to remove as much of the waves as possible and re-paint the entire interior the correct Dark Fawn color and add the Argent Silver to the front splash pan. After that, I'll see if I have any funds left to diagnose the extreme shim situation at the core support and correct.

My nephew came over today to pick up the quad I'm giving to his son. So we had to drag the old '39 out of the shop to drive the quad through to get it out front. I got the repairs done to the front fenders, stripped to bare steel, and got them primered too. Then painted the inside of both fenders with Rustoleum gloss black.
Took a few pictures while it was out front during the move. First time it's seen daylight since last May, and first time I've been able to see it from more than 3'-4' away also! It was nice to see it outside, and see the stance better. Even with it sitting on the slope i could still get an idea of how it looks, and somewhat how the stance is.

So today (and yesterday, too) I spent many hours doing yard cleanup. Get rid of scrap steel, scrap aluminum. and other crap. four old lawnmowers,, two dead garden tractors, an old central vac unit, a pile of old steel shims, some old steel shelving units, a whole pile of old engine stuff, heads, and intakes.

Also two old roto tillers, some old lighting fixtures, etc.plus 3 dead garden tractors and an old tow bar that was missing some pieces

Wife is very happy with the cleanup.

Little early for yard cleanup around here. If there's crap in the yard, it's buried under 2 feet of snow. I CAN still see all the old tree stumps I need to grind out this spring...

It IS frustrating, sitting here, WAITING for the weather to get good enough to start the multitude of projects I want to get done this summer.

Take comfort in the fact that even if you finish them all standing on your head in one summer, including grind stumps...

Brian will have better peer approval by sanding shims. For five minutes.

Yeah, but Brian is doing automotive work and we're trying to encourage him to stay at it...

I'd LIKE to squeeze in getting the quarters and tail panel replaced on the Camaro this summer too, so I can drive it with the new engine and 4 speed. I may need to find a way to stretch the days into 26 hours for that...

I'll be working for the excavator who built my path to the new shed and building pad too for funds to complete all my lofty goals, so maybe the days will need to be 30 hours each...

THAT is what is so frustrating about winter, not being able to do a damn thing I want to accomplish for another 3 months...

Just the cold is enough to discourage / frustrate me. I sure hope the Camaro can be together enough to cruise a few. You can probably fly through the welding pretty quick these days. Hated to hear that the orange Chevelle project backtracked on ya, I was excited for you about to have a shiny done one. You've put forth enough effort to deserve.

I have been using my fair share of propane heating that garage for my 5 minutes! LOL
