Smile What are you working on?

Anything goes here.
Car project? House project?
Anything.

So,
I picked up an aluminum engine block for my 93 last night. And installed some amber LEDs.
Also, packed up more crap in my garage and attic in preparation for moving.

Passenger mirror delete on the T-Racer (it was busted anyway).

Chasing a few less-than-perfect electrical connections on the Bel Air. Well I can't complain- she is 55 years old and has hardly ever given me grief.

As Darin likes to say, I have too many projects. Here are the current active ones:

- finishing up a remodel of my office
- Honda Civic engine rebuild
- Saturn L200 A/C line repair

Those are the main ones with many others in line like fixing up my Tercel and finishing the solar hot water panel installation on the house.

Working on my Mustang right now. Replaced the hatch, drivers side tail-light, trim on the window, passengers wiper arm and a wash. Still have to find doors, buy new rims off a buddy (stock rims just not bent :P), track down a really, really bad oil leak, etc etc list goes on.

I've got two kids. Projects are more like piles of stuff with intentions than anything else.

I have some random small stuff to do in my apartment, and am considering to do some refurbishments in the kitchen and to replace the entire floor in the bathroom. Probably only going to have time for that in December...
