I hate to sound cynical, but reading all your problems makes me feel better! HaHaHa. I thought I was the only one who seemingly always had "sh*t happen"! Hahaha. The real world of old cars is not so easy nor perfect as those magazine articles show you or TV shows produce. I have often said I would like to see those "real world" outtakes on some of these cars build shows. I can just hear the swearing now, parts installations & re-installations that don't fit or work, the return trip to the parts store to get "the right part" because the numbskull behind the counter reeeeally doesn't know anything about cars, those trips to the medicine cabinet for bandaides, tools and parts being thrown about in frustration, and cars being kicked! HaHa. That's real world. And once that is all overcome, the joy of hopping in your pride and joy, turning the ignition key and............nothing. Yep, that's my world. But ain't it great. HaHaHa.
