Where are my darn parts!
Where are my darn parts!

Anyone has this happen? I have been purchasing parts alone the away and putting them away until I need them. Well, I checked may receipts and I know I ordered them. I looked at all my usual stashes and nothing. It was over the xmas break and the only thing I can think of is maybe they got packed away with the xmas stuff. That would be a PITA to go through that. Well, off to continue looking.
Whats that saying "Once in a while even a blind squirrel finds a nut"
I'm ready to put the whole front grille stuff on mine, and STILL can't find the grille mounting bracket that I KNOW I intentionally put aside when I packed up all my stuff and brought it home from the shop. Huh

Right there with ya, Bro! Big Grin

I always put stuff up in the garage "so I know where its at", only to find the stuff years later! Man I forgot about that brand new holley electric fuel pump, new battery tray, box full of jets for my old holley....... this is just some stuff I found a couple weeks ago when i was digging out my archery stuff.

LOL even my sig line offended somebody!
We've all been there, we know that we have it, but finally give up and buy a new one, only to accidently find it in a place that should have been the first place we looked.

What drives me crazy is battery chargers, keeping them straight as to which one is for which device and then finding the right charger when I need it. I have a small box of chargers I no longer know what they're for but afraid to throw them away, as sure as hell, (from past experience) shortly after I throw any of them away I'll have a device that needs to be charged but no longer have the charger.

I lost a brand new repo dash (original factory tooling). I looked everywhere and never found it. I ended up buying another one. My best guess is I put it on the top of the wifes car and she drove away with it. Expensive mistake.

I always get the stink-eye when anybody I know is looking for something and recruit me for help. I'll usually wait a minute or two before I point and declare, "Hey! There it isn't!" Makes 'em look every time. rofl

I'm very good at hiding things from myself I mean, putting things where I'll be able to find them.... Rolleyes

1973 Mach 1 Q code 351 4V, 9A paint, standard interior, 3.50 rear, C6 trans.
I have lots of stuff everywhere too, but I can find it. The problem is that I don't have enough sheet metal.

Oh sheet.

Doubt it. There would have been a thread here 15 minutes later about the brand new '71-73 dash found in the street Wink
