What did you do today instead of working on your Mustang?
#1
For me I am waiting on the 71/72 weld / sealant book to show up.  No book = no seam sealer going on the car yet.

So instead of working on the Mustang I decided to work on my daily driver project instead.  Master cylinder was leaking on the diesel 83' GMC 4x4.  In the process of replacing the master cylinder I broke a mounting ear off the hydroboost.  One mystery remanufactured hydroboost later it is all back together and working.

Since the last time I worked on the Mustang (Dec 26th) I tweaked my back (L4 nerve pinch), I've pretty much been sittin' on me arse making sure I don't breathe or bend wrong to anger the lower back gods.  It's gotten better, I can actually walk without the cane I swiped from my wife, and I'm at the level 'moderate discomfort' as opposed to actual pain.  Still gotta be careful bending and twisting, though.

Aside from that, I gave Eddie a buzz today.  He's gotten fuzzy beyond belief, so I whipped out the clippers and gave him a buzz (used the #7 blade on him).  Tossed him up on the kitchen table and went for it - only took about 80 minutes this time, unlike the standard 2-3 hours (because he wants nothing to do with it and fidgets constantly), but my wife helped rotate him around and keep him still when I worked the complicated places. 

He looks like he lost about 10 lbs... I wish I could look like I lost about one-fifth of my body weight just by getting a hair cut.  rofl

The Mustang is at mom's house so I don't get to work on it. But I did get to take the Jeep out wheeling today. The weather was awesome.

Sorry - Eddie's my dog.  He's a 45 lb Cocker Spaniel we rescued from the local pound about 4 years ago.  I didn't get an 'after' picture, but here's one that shows how fuzzy he was before.

   

And here's one to explain that "45lb Cocker Spaniel doesn't mean he's fat."  He's just a big dog - probably has some Clumber Spaniel mixed in as well.  That's 4 feet of decking around the pool, for reference.

She thinks it's fun to put some kind of costume or 'accessory' on him now and then.  This was during "Shark Week 2014" (yes, the Discovery Channel thing).  We'd just opened the pool and she thought it would be funny.  He really doesn't care, but I'm with you - that's not his happiest face. Wink
