Everyone came out today. I'm fine. Fuel issues are killing me right now. May have another house on lock. Home inspection is this week.

Hey Nate, car is looking good! Curious, why a miata rear end?

Jeff, the car is looking good, how's she running? Saw you got mike out to help you sort the fuel issue

Oh yeah? Didn't know you had gone with the E30 rear, last I saw was the miata rear.

Got big plans for it then?

make it run and drive? my vision looked smaller than the labor needed. while my welding has improved tenfold due to a couple of new friends, i dont trust it enough to do anything structural that'll have a lot of torque acting on it

lmao unfortunately those are the only plans atm. idea is simple but doing it on your own for the first time is a bit daunting and im having a ton of fun! only professionals in the garage are welding pro's. One is almost mechanically clueless and the other is pretty well versed.

wherever im posting these updates is a little misleading my b lol

Heh, i get the whole "idea is simple" thing... Ive been working on a couple projects that seemed simple and easy, and one of which has turned into a bigger thing than originally planned. Im still looking at expanding the ambient lighting to the rear passengers, but getting door cards apart was the simple bit, wiring is turning into the hard part. The hardest one, is modifying the CB radio. Its almost finished the mod part, then have to figure out mounting and trim.

wife has a strong chance of having the corona. we got her tested yesterday
for all the conundrum its brought up... it really is just a mild sickness for us. guess that goes along with the elderly and at risk as the target audience for this hyper infectious disease

stress levels are about 0 right now, been told to stay home and not leave the house for at least 14 days. gonna have to have someone bring us groceries next week
