this past weekend I installed a blower, rebuilt the 200r4, built a double hump cross member, installed a Grand National posi, replaced all the window rubber and weather stripping, and then I woke up... I really didn't do anything but i wanted to... this next weekend I'm replacing my power steering pump and related hoses. FO REAL!! I can't run the a/c until I get that fixed.

I.m on break from extra physical labor for a few weeks. Enrolled on my first website forum ,this 1. Been trying to help a few people out with knowledge that I can't take with me when I die. Should of done this sooner. This is also my excuse to learn to type. Saving up energy to finish my hood electrically lifting over my windshield,remote controlled, etc.

SPENT WAY TOO MUCH TIME TRYING TO FIND THE SOURCE OF A STRANGE INTERMITTENT SOUND IN MY DRIVE TRAIN.iT WAS 94 DEGREES HERE TODAY SO PATIENCE RAN SHORT. I ALSO NOTICED A SLIGHT VIBRATION ON MY HURST SHIFTER AS I DRIVE DOWN THE HIGHWAY. I AM GOING TO HAVE IT CHECKED FOR BALANCE AFTER A BLASTING OR HAVE A NICE ALUMINUM SHAFT MADE.

Reading this thread makes me feel lazy because I'm not doing anything drastic, and smart because I bough a mechanically sound car

Many posters on this thread have mechanically sound cars, but enjoy modifying or improving on what they've got. Others enjoy restoring a car that may have seen better days in the past. Miller why don't you show us what you've got?

All I did was buy some vacuum hoses, and finish cleaning the glue out of the roof-rail channels. Not very productive in 90 degree weather......., although I finished inspecting an airplane for a customer also (annual inspection), and signed my life away in the logs.....
