List is way shorter/involved this year and I plan to get it completely done by the time I retire!!!!

1. Vacuum canister loose
2. Mount driver side courtesy light
3. Install seal on A/C vent at heater box - OE was some really sticky stuff I forgot to get - got from a member here.
4. Install OE heater control knobs.
5. Install OE AM/FM radio/new front speaker
6. install OE missing upper Fender bolt
7. Install OE bucket seat nuts/bolts - passenger side - pulling this to reinstall A/C vents etc.
8. Reinstall center console and A/C vents - removed for dash/radio fixes...

Still she slumbers dreaming of burning tarmac and avoiding the cops...

Well.... it's been in the low teens here for a long time but it feel like forever!!!!!

At least the garage is "warm" for sleeping beauty... did some work on the garage walls two summers ago so I can have a fairly comfortable work space in the winter...

Why I don't even think of taking out a toy until May 1st.... Up to 30 days past St. Patty's Day is fair game here in the frozen upper Midwest.

3 - 4 inches of white crap!!

I don't miss that crap at all and why I move out 29 years ago. About 72 degrees here yesterday and sunny. Today light rain overnight/morning and now overcast, but 60 degrees.

Next move is Florida and I will be working on and driving my car year round.

Yea, contemplating my future landing spot... planning early retirement end of December. I've got to take this this thing somewhere where it's warmer longer... It would be nice to have the ability to work on and drive cars anytime I'd like. Mrs. Dan gets her daily in the garage for winter so that limits me greatly on taking it over for larger jobs over multiple days.

Not mine but she is purdy...

I'm in FL, you trade the 330 days/ year of driving weather for complete lack of topography and decent roads... 🤔

True! But at least your car doesn't shake apart from the nasty roads. Each one of those patches peaks about two inches above the road surface. I have to navigate to areas with good surfaces...

I guess it's all a matter of perspective.

This is what I have to deal with as soon as I leave my driveway. At times it's like riding a bucking bronco!

Roads outside my homestead are like navigating mine fields!!!

That being said when you find a "good" road with topography it is a blast!!!
