Steve, I want (2) 10' wide doors. I'd like to go 12-14' ceiling so I can install a lift.

WMsonta - Looks like plenty of space to pack stuff in.

I have 12 ' walls and a four post lift in the rear.  I would like to have a two post lift beside it but I need another wide door beside the one in the center.  I have a regular entry door on the right hand side.

I should have put a 8x40' container across the back, insulated it and moved a lot of my stuff in there that is taking up floor space but, I did not realize just how much stuff I have LOL

This past year, my  motivation has gone away.  If some one comes to visit, I get motivated but when I am by myself, I think how much my back is going to hurt, and I go back to my chair.


My son bought a 72 satellite wagon with a 318 in it.  I have a 440 in the shop so we are stockpiling all the damn parts required to do a swap.  I told him to bring a friend with him because I am getting to the point where I want to sit and give directions and it takes me too long to get up off the floor.

In the old days, that would have sent me out to play with cars.  Now, I would think she might have something interesting to say

My wife and I decided our oldest needed to be around some other kids, so Iíve got a week off from daddy daycare.

So far I like the exhaust out the front - itís quieter than dumping it under the car. Itís the right amount of angry outside and mellow inside.


Tune needs some more fuel idle and off idle which I expected with the auto swap. I tested the transmission as good as I could on ramp and running crappy. Itís got reverse and 3 forward gears. Now Iíve got some motivation to start knocking out the rest of the stuff.

Old gas and Running Airflow Table out of wack - hence the screwdriver for idle control.


Jason - when I get to that point I'll be happy to share screenshots or videos of the changes.

Daycare lasted 2 days.....he came home with what we thought was a little sunburn, it wasn't until he went to take a shower my wife noticed that he must have had his shirt off while playing outside and is sunburn from the waist up. The real kick in the nuts is we provided sun screen for him that we know works.....they just "forgot" to put it on him. Then we had to fight with the daycare to get our money back for Wednesday, Thursday, Friday - as we had prepaid for the week. Without proper treatment he would have blistered all over, and I think he still might in his shoulders. It's bad enough I put silvadene on him, and he immediately started thanking me that it was feeling better.
Nothing like paying for someone to take care of your child and them failing miserably..... .just makes me sick.


So no car updates today - I spent most of the day yesterday checking my to-do list and gathering stuff to check stuff off the list.
