Where to begin... I have a whole list of stuff that's happened and reasons why more hasn't happened of late. What we have done is attack that bloody drive shaft with newly acquired air tools -yay for air tools!- alas to no avail. We managed to remove 1 lonely bolt and the rest will have to be drilled out. I have proof! It was an epic task for not much reward....
1 down 3 to go..
Other Mustang progress includes the removal of the exhaust system. WD40 did the trick, after soaking the bolts for a fortnight they were pretty easy to undo. Note to self: next time when removing the exhaust from a 1988 Mustang don't lie under the piece that you're unbolting. It will pin you.
Obligatory picture of exhaust pieces. I don't have one of the headers because I honestly don't know where they ended up!
My next task was to figure out how to remove the fuel tank while Jeff and Claire were working on the K frame. I was ably assisted by Jakey, who would lie next to me under the car licking my face while I was undoing bolts which was extremely helpful if a little distracting. He also has to be louder than the air compressor at all times!
Gillian's little helper :)
We've not done much in the garage of late because I had a visitor! The lovely Wendi came for a week and we hung out, went to the beach, had a bonfire party and made cupcakes. Much less engine grease involved all round!
|Luauing it up!|
|Bonifre party: bikers, booze, bonfire. Perfect.|
|Clearly the only way to roast marshmallows!|
And finally, one of our favorite things to do is cruise the Lemon Lot on Base. I have drooled over many things there but this was the best so far, a Plymouth Valiant 200, only $2500. In need of love but looking amazing for it's year (which I have forgotten)
The pictures are all out of whack, it's doing my nut. I give up.
