Yup - the pesky "Day Job" thing me, as well (during the week). No excuses on the weekend.

Oddly enough, when I was at the Auto Hobby Shop on the weekends, my answer would've been, "all of the needy people that shouldn't be working on their cars needing my help," had kept me from working on it.

Now that it's at home, the weekends are "All Mustang, All Day," with her blessing.

The irony comes in 2 flavors:
  • At the awesomely-equipped shop: not much time to work because of having to run the shop and wife was complaining about being gone all weekend
  • Car's at home: shop facilities kinda suck, but the wife insists on getting something done and is right in the middle of it with me

Huh

Work. And my Mustang is at my mothers house. I have a 3 car garage but 4 cars so I end up swapping out a car to/from mom's house. Right now the '82 Cherokee is at home now getting love. I hope to swap out to the mustang in the next month or so.

No much I need to do. Check for a possible stuck caliper. I want to move the GV switch. When I get ambitious I am going to put a looser torque converter in.

Work, I've been "on call" this week so I don't think much is getting done. Least I get to drive the F-550 service truck all week.

Guess I could park the truck next to the mustang as it has an air compressor, welder, and tons of neat tools! :p

Well I used to be indecisive now Iam not sure Big Grin. 51 percent work 49 percent laziness combined with being a bit of a tight arse and not wanting to spend too much too quick.

He has all the vices I admire and none of the virtues I despise

Finding parts is one item....and as well as I know sitting here right now...I should have ordered my tires for the 8th straight month. MOST of the time I "forget" because of work. How do you FORGET for 8 months?

THEN its yard work, taking care of the other three cars...etc etc

Priorities and work. Mostly work. I have been neglecting the Mach1 due to my work schedule and other priorities. That is about to change. After 4 years of working more than 70 hrs a week at my day job the overtime has come to an end. I will miss the huge paychecks but I am looking forward to working on the Mach.
