Well guys. I finally had an opportunity to do a few things on my cabover. With my wife's illness, I needed a mental health break, so out to the barn!
New wheels and tires are on and balanced, got the front grill and headlight buckets in, and re-wired my gauge cluster and installed it. Slow progress but progress nonetheless.
Regards, Mark.

Prayers for your lady!

the biggest thing that keeps me from getting totally frustrated by lifeís distractions and obligations and selling off my all of my projects is how they remind me of my own restoration. Iím reminded of the origin of todayís Easter celebration, how we get stripped down to the frame, blasted, refinished, and resassembled so we can be made presentable.

Our version of this process is always cathartic and therapeutic to me, when I can get into the shop, and mimic Him - restoring.
Glad you were able to creatively vent. I canít wait to see the ultimately presentable version. And again, actively thoughtful for your wifeís health.

Thanks for the comforting words and thoughts. I have been stripped down, blasted, but not yet reassembled. Down but not out!!

Regards, Mark.
