been getting my CAD on recently:

And my welding is improving

Today was more CAD, and MOAR HOLESZ!

I may have gotten carried away with the number of plug weld holes.  Maybe some of them will just be speed holes.  Lunch break is over, time to fire up the welder!

My profile and all my threads got nuked when the C word destroyer got a little overzealous.  If all goes well, the old thread will be back and this one will be appended to it.

Wow. I saw where it happened to cooter. Didn't realize it was widespread.

I'm still legitimately hoping to see this show up and kick my ass this year. But not at the expense of your role as husband and father.

Thread loss SUX!

If you need a hand just let us know.  Adrian has a jerb now so maybe he’ll be a bit more subdued if he comes with me!

I’ve got the husband and father part under control, but the 2 weeks in China didn’t do this build any favors.

Thanks man, I appreciate the offer!  How do you feel about cleaning aluminum suspension bits?  That’s really the only thing I can delegate right now.

Whatcha doing today?  ;-) 

I’ve got a bum shoulder and a violently sore throat and my heart’s just not in it right now.  But if there was someone else here, I could find some motivation.

plus it’s a really nice day for a Harley.

At 1:15PM I threw in the towel for today.  Currently at local Urgent Care.  I have a very high threshold for suffering, but fever developed today and knocked my dick in the dirt.  I will live to fight another day.

PM’d you my cell.  This week all evenings are good except Wednesday.  Patrick may be in town for a brief visit one evening as well, but not to work on the car.

Got it.  This week is pretty well loaded up I'm sorry to say.  Kids events, Dad's 80th birthday, and weekend is packed.  Next week should be OK.

Took a sick day today, spent a little bit of time in the garage.  Got the Corvair front rails notched and started fitting the C4 crossmember, how I should have done it 5 weeks ago.  

I intentionally cut to the inside of my marks, so it’s going to take a little finesse to get it into final position.

i really feel like E36 M3, might take another sick day tomorrow.

Quit snorting the fumes from your flux welding

I’m sure it’s all contributing.  My sore throat got *really* sore while I was using the cutoff wheel.

Take care of yourself man...I'm as hard-headed and focused as they come, but as I'm often reminded...it's just a car. Take time to heal.

Maybe take a day or two and just rest as much as possible.  Get well soon.  It's a cool project but it's not that cool.

Looking good dude! You are much surgical with this than I was on the truck.  Also, take care of yourself those flux-core fumes are as nasty as they come. 

I'd pick up a low profile respirator like this one to wear under your helmet.  I picked one of those last year when I was doing a lot of welding and it helps a lot. My lungs feel a lot cleaner after a day under the hood than they would normally.
