    Installed some really nice Infinity 6x9" speakers in the back of the Maverick, cleaned up the wiring in the trunk, and finished installing my Kenwood head unit!

    Walked over to the Comet. Looked down at the floor pans. Looked over at the MIG welder. Looked back at the floor pans. Spent the rest of the day cleaning up the shop and my toolbox.

    Been distracted lately...wanted to get a gun built. Got that done, so yesterday got to work on the car again! Completed the transmission cross member finally! Thought about starting in on the floors, but, the cold and wind picked up, so that will have to wait for a warmer day.

    Geez I don't see any light at the end of the tunnel. Now that spring is here I'm having to do yard and home improvments. No time to work on the cars. :(

    I do a little Lawn Mowing for car parts too. Just purchased all the wiring and hook-ups and fusing for my in-car navigation/entertainment system. Now I just need to do a little more Lawn Mowing and I'll be able to get the last few electronics pieces this weekend.

    Drove it, like I have most every day for the past 7 1/2 years and 189,000 miles. Only been putting about 300-400 miles a week on it so far this year, though. In the fall, I'll be retiring it from daily driver status for good, tearing it down, and dropping a EFI 5.0 Turbo setup I've had sitting around for a while in it.

    Used chrome polish on the old paint. It had a lot of scuffs and small rust spots when I bought it a couple weeks ago. Removed everything and it looks amazing. Now I need to put some wax on it. (After I dig in to a bucket of icy-hot)
