Hi Aaron, glad to hear things are getting settled down for you and you will be able to start working on your car again.

I've been over in China on a contract for the past three months with another month to go. That is going to allow me to get started working on mine again when I get back to town.

Wow, that is one hell of a gig, hope it's been going well for you. Fortunately our cars are much more patient than we are. I really just want to get it driveable so I can take it around the neighborhood and get that feeling back. I have had dreams about driving my car so I really want to get back on it.

Glad to hear you check back in. I too did a layoff on the car for 7 months to upgrade the garage. Now we need to finish these cars.

Thanks, it's been a wild last 12+ months. Got any pics of the new garage? I decided to install some Gladiator equipment and gear wall panels and couldn't be happier. I had big cabinets but they were MDF and melted in the water, so I decided to get something that was a little more durable. The gear wall panels replaced peg board.

Hi Aaron, it was quite the gig for sure but it has been going quite well, the work is pretty straightforward and I'm not working offshore but in an office so that is an improvement over what it could have been. I need to get mine on the road in a little over a year since my eldest daughter turns 16 in Feb of 2020. My plan is the Camaro will be my daily driver and she will have my Ford Exploder to use. This job is going to go a long way towards getting my car on the road by then. I'm going to have to farm out a fair bit of work but hopefully I can get that started once I am back in Houston.

I was just reading your SPI write ups, I'm in this phase of my car. just getting stuff blasted and epoxy primered. Just ordered some 2k primer and some more epoxy primer and will begin mudding using Evercoat Ultra Rage Gold. Hopefully you can get back to your car soon!

I wanted to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope everyone here is doing well!

What's the saying? Life comes at you fast? That describes the last three years ever since our house flooded from Harvey. I completely shelved the 76 project, which I estimate is 90% done. It's such a shame because up until Harvey I had great momentum. But I know it will get done. Kids, family, etc all became more important priorities. I'm preaching to the choir though.
