Love these old gals
I'm sitting here in my home off on a conference call finding myself so looking forward to, almost giddy that I get to work on my 69 convertible tomorrow.
I'm going to replace the power steering pump, the high pressure PS line as well as the PS return line & carb. Then I decided to bite the bullet on the sloppy steering and do a replacement steering box and all new moog upper & lower control arms, inner & outer tie rods, pitman arm, & front springs and new rear leaf springs and finally new shocks all around. Then I bought the fast track alignment gauge so I'm going to give that a whirl.
I work 15-18 hour days for a high tech company managing 12 people around the world so stress gets to me sometimes and for whatever the reason I love the release of working on these old gals in my off time. Seems like no matter how stubborn the job it never causes me to stress out. Whether it's a heartfelt passion for the hobby or a partial release from the day to day stress of my job I just get super excited to be able to take something in need of a little TLC and bring it back to it's former glory or even a little a better.
Sorry, but just had to share......Wrench on everyone!!
