    I've gotten a few things done on the Camaro, mainly during the weekends when everyone is napping. I was going to try and bleed the brakes but did a pressure test and discovered a small leak in the front line at the "T" junction off the MC. So I need to remake that small portion of brake line. The circuit for the back brakes appears to hold pressure good, so I can at least bleed those.

    My wife is working hard to get our little girl fattened up. She is almost 9 lbs now after ~6 weeks. She left the hospital just above 6 lb. She slept as late at 6:30 am one morning, so we're slowly getting her into a sleep schedule like her brother.

    Thanks guys. I made my to-do list in typical fashion so I knock off things as I have time. The fact that I COULD drive the car if I just bled the brakes and clutch MC and did some other minor things is a pleasant feeling. The plan is to take a week off in the fall and knock out as much as I can with the hope that I'm down to a bunch of smaller tasks. I still need to price out a detailer finishing the paint buffing.

    FYI our house flooded from tropical storm Harvey back on Aug 27-28. We got ~16" inside the house and have since demo'd the house and had it professionally remediated. So now we are waiting to sign a contract with the GC we have chosen. Then we can start the rebuild. We're hoping drywall begins in 2-4 weeks.

    The Camaro was not harmed. I jacked it up ~30", well above the water.

    Wow. There's a lot of work to be done at your house. At least the main things in your life are safe. If you have a son, I bet you won't name him Harvey. lol
