Nice work so far, your skillset more than can handle this.
Dust off the "oh so much to do" overwhelming feeling and let's go!
Been there , done that. The sprint turns into a crawl...just keep crawling!

Will be watching.

Yeah, it's pretty sad I haven't gotten more done. We've been going some motor work and I've been getting some more stuff together. Hope to get back to it when it's a little warmer.

Bro, this is just normal. I sustained my pace for couple years really well, then just got completely burned out. Life throws curve ***** too and combination of it all can just wear you out. I'm just going to crawl slowly , consistently these days, one major project a week, or work on one small one a day. Just keep crawling!!😉

(But I live in warmer climate, So. Fla...so different scenario. But you got better sources up there car work wise. Many are thieves or just plain dishonest down here.)

I have a guy up here that does restorations and has done a lot of show winning pint jobs and cars in low rider mag, etc. that I'm leaning towards doing the paint on mine. I'm hoping to at least get it driveable this year, but that was the plan last year so we will see. Ran into some motor issues this past weekend so now I have to figure out my next step there.
