Man that sounds good right about now. By the way, good to hear you are back in good health Sir! :thumbup:



Today, I replaced the garage remote controller. So now I can actually go inside and remember what I am supposed to be working on.

I worked on my father :D

took my dad to his exercise class at the senior center

he was getting to be in bad shape from not going anywhere or doing anything :pain:

right after thanksgiving, I said "we gotta get you out and moving around more"
so I took him (kinda against his will) and signed him up for the exercise program at the local senior center :boxing:

so now he's doing it (going to the class) on his own, but I still have to poke him with a pointy stick, to make sure he keeps at it :mwink:

Looks good Matt!

Today I got back on the Gran Sport for the first time in over a year! OMG how crazy is that! I got one of the doors all done in rubbers and such and heading to putting a fender back on so I can turn it around and get to the other side.

An old friend came by tonight with is 77 Bronco restoration so I was distracted for a good time but it was a great visit, I needed that.

I was a little intimidated by this part, and had been avoiding it :pain:


yesterday I cut some of it open to see how bad it was, and.......its not as bad as I thought it would be :D

so I looked at it for awhile, trying to figure out how to get it put back together, once I cut it apart :confused:

1) took some pics and printed them
2) took lots of measurements and wrote them down on the pics
3) start cutting and grinding a little bit at a time, until its all gone
4) start trimming the new piece a little at a time, until it fits

I got a good start on it, and I can see its going to work :D

really its a piece of cake :pimp: :P

Nothing I Wanted To.
 
Leave For Work At 6:30 Am. Work. Get Home From Work At 6:30 Pm. Bolt & Washer Had Arrived For The Bottom Pulley On The 33 Ply, (changing From Single V To Double For The Vintage Air Install), So I Went Ahead And Put It In. Thought About Doing This & That To The Car But Decided It Was Too Cold In The Garage, It Was Too Late To Start Something New, I Was Hungry And Tired. Man, Wasn't It Only A Year Or Two Back When I Used To Work The Same Hours And Then Come Home And Spend Another Four To Six Hours On The Project? Getting Old Is For The Birds. Time To Retire So That I Can Do What I Really Like All Day. At The Present Pace, I Only Accomplish Something On The Weekends!!!!
