    Trying to get my sissy ass buddy motivated. I'm at a stand still with my stuff for now so I was really charged up about ripping into the Stylemaster. Well, I have today off with no girls until 5:00, I'm gonna daydream in the garage for a few hours. My cure for cabin fever is garage fever!

    Just how much area does this bribe cover? Like town, state, USA? Can I contribute? Actually I'd just like the snow off my roofs!!!

    Workin on the bottoms of my rear fenders. Who ever fixed them before was a real butcher. Bottom lips were rusted so the bent 3/8 rod tacked it
    in place and hammered the botom of the fender over it. :eek:

    I'm watching mine. When the weather gets a little better and the snow melts, I have to rebuild the front end on my OT Mustang.

    Next project might be adding a T5 behind my 289 in my 63 Fairlane. Would like to get my bike running too. We'll see.

    Snow two foot over the mailbox at the road, had to shovel the roof before last week's rain/snow storm. Taking small pieces from the shoebox and working on them by the wood stove. Wife hasn't caught me yet. Built a new pleated package tray, polishing the chrome oil filter assembly I got from a HAMBer in Canada, building a finned alum radio blockoff to hold two winged SW gauges on my dash, and buying stuff for March (hopefully) work in the garage like a pair of Porter mufflers. Doing wiring harness so I can control OD with a toggle switch and working on parts so my MP collection of blues will play while I cruise.
