Yes on the effort coming and going. Here, unless one has an insulated and air conditioned garage, only a real beast can tough it out working on it for those 6 months of the year. I'm not. I'm kind of a poser. It's embarrassing. But please don't ever give up on that '81. The project only fails when you give up. I've given up on a couple cars over the last 40 years and have some heartache over those still.great job, I still have a 81 apart in pieces. lol. effort comes and goes.
