Will I ever finish my 52 plymouth Coupe

Anyone of you have problems working on your favorite car, truck? or motorcycle.Last year during the fall season, and winter I was working on my Plymouth shed between rain storms. Plus other disasters around home, and tractor repairs for my mowing business. Then comes spring this year lots of weeds to mow for others. Just about finishing around July. Then the wife has an operation, that takes a few weeks taking care of her. Just about healing from that, then she brakes her arm a week ago. That will be another couple months taking care of her. Just glad I can do it, but my projects suffer. I did manage to prime a few motorcycle parts. At 77 I can't lose too many more years. Stan

I hope you finish it and all the other things you desire. I also hope the best for your wife. You've had a lot on your plate this summer.

Just keep picking away. I'm feeling the same way with my huge project. Take ten minutes at a time if need be. There's always ten minutes here and there. You will feel something was accomplished and hope will come back.
Good luck with it.

I whole heartedly agree, family comes first but there will never be a time that there are not more important things in your life than an old car. I definitely believe in the five minute rule, like Pugsy mentioned. A few minutes to relax and enjoy a project is precious. Everybody needs something that gives them satisfaction and a feeling of accomplishment.

It's time for a refresher course on the Lynn Yearwood Theory of street rod fabrication.

"The Lynn Yearwood Theory of Street Rod Fabrication. ...."Any car can be built in two years. If you install two bolts per day, that is 14 per week, 62 per month, and 730 per year."

Every day, take five minutes to do something on the car. Just something Even with a broken arm there is a little time your wife can sit and relax while you duck.into the shed.

Best of luck....John
