Afternoon everyone.

3" of snow in St. Clair this morning. Almost wrecked the pontiac on the way to work. Somebody was sideways in my lane coming at me(2 lane rd). Don't know how I managed to miss him but I did.

Also, this came in the mail today. :)

sbc17 Well, it's been getting warmer here in Michigan this past week or so. I'm hoping to get out to the car in the next couple weeks and get it on the road!

Things left to do include bolting the header and a few misc things back together. There is a few plugs in the wiring harness that need to be connected and the bumper and hood need to be fully re-assembled. There are a few other odds and ends but that is basically it. I can't wait!

sbc17 Went out and saw the car the other day. It's starting to get warmer. It was 20F this morning and it is supposed to be in the higher 30's this week. All this means I'm closer and closer to working on the car again. I'm still a couple weeks out from 40* days which is tolerable to work on it. I can't express how excited it feels to be so close!

sbc17 So, still nothing new for you guys. It was -19F this morning when I left for work. So it's cold as heck in Michigan right now. Lol. As soon as it's warmer out the progress will continue!

tyellen I hear ya on the cold. I sent my hatch out to get painted on Friday so I can drive mine to a shop to get the over advanced code taken care of.

sbc17 No new updates for you guys. It's been super cold in Michigan the last week or so. Spring can't come soon enough! Can't wait to et this car running!

Un related update:
I am starting to look for a replacement car for my pontiac. I don't see that car lasting much longer so this summer I'll be buying something newer. Probably a MINI Cooper S. I've always wanted one.

Thanks! On the other hand, I have to say that I'm glad you sold it so I could buy it down the road. This car means so much to me.

sbc17 Car is all put away for the winter.

The little guy has a buddy for the winter this year. :)

So I didn't get the car done like I had hoped. But I did get almost everything done. It has been a great learning experience so far and the knowledge I have gained makes up for the few short comings.

I probably won't have to many posts this winter since I won't really have anything to tell about. Lol. I am planning on working on my custom gauge faces for the pod gauges. So there will be a few updates to share but nothing major.

Thanks for the help the last few months guys.

Morning everybody. It's been pretty cold the last few day herein Michigan. It's starting to snow as well.

Car is basically put back together. Just need to clean up my mess in the barn and call it a day. Still have a few tiny things here and there but that will happen in the spring. It's to cold to work on it anymore this year. My hands were freezing last night working only after an hour or so. Lol
