Worked on the seat mounts & misc stuff in the interior! Still trying to put in several hrs a day on this project! When I get a lil bored with one aspect I switch to another... it all has to get done sooner or later & it keeps me moving forward! Ummm... I get bored easily!

Still getting rid of all the parts collected through the years. Not going to build more hot rods so there's no need to save parts that might be used "someday". Emptied the rafters and shelving in the back garage this weekend. Some items to scrap, many to a younger friend who can sell the stuff at swap meets, a few "keeper" items.

Tripper, that's a good technique. Keeps the project moving.

Nothing happening on the car lately. Honey-do list time. Gardens, mow lawn, kill weeds, replace the sewer pump and 135ft of underground wire, level driveways, scrape and paint the fence. Down to the last one on the list.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

My buddy Jr and I have passed all inspections so far and got the floors poured on his house. Got that done Saturday. We've been wanting to get out fishing. So we get out on the lake. Got my boat in and as I'm backing out of the launching ramp, I noticed the prop back off the shaft on my trolling motor. I dropped anchor when I saw it fall. I pulled clothes and boots off and in I went. Found the prop but not the nut and Jr. couldn't produce one with right threads out of his truck. I asked if he had any large zip ties and he looked at me like yeah, that's not going to work. Anyway he found some. The pix are from after fishing all afternoon, using nothing but the trolling motor. We caught 6 bass, but had no camera. I got these when I got home.

zip tie to the rescue...

As I have said before Mr. Small, I like the way you think

Another truckload of unwanted parts ready for the scrap yard. Heads, crankshafts, and so on. Took a load of good stuff to my young friend to sell on line and at swap meets. He can keep the money.

Presently having fun stopping the leaks in the brake system on the roadster, whilst bleeding them.

Like many of you, springtime chores outdoors, in between rain showers.

Spent several hours filling a sunken spot under my front step with 600 lbs of rock, and then other miscellaneous yard work.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
