Bleh,I have the NY'er out now and took her for a spin.
I have been in the garage the past couple days after work.
I have organized all the new/NOS parts I had colloected over winter,boxed,marked and put away from harm's way.
I started to clean up the mess in there as well.
 
Very soon work will commence.....

Today I opend the garage doors and hunkered down cleaning up the aftermath of what looked like Heroshima in there.I could hardly walk in there with all the parts strewn all over the place. The car was a resting place for parts as well.
But after a few hours--and beers---the floor is nice and clean,parts put away,all the purdy schtuff in boxes are marked and properly stored.I cleared off the car so we could work on it,too.
After supper,I gathered up all my tools that were spread from here to kingdom come.I re-organized my tool box so I can at least find a wrench when I need one.
Tomorrow Ray will be here.
We are going to review what we need to finish from last year and set up a plan for this year.
I am hoping to really crack on it hard this year.With all the parts I had collected-and need to pick up-all we need to do is get to work.
Cheers!!

Sounds like tommorrow is opening day! A new season. Hopefully at the end of the season you'll win the World Series and have the BOAB finished. I appologize for the corny baseball metaphor but good luck on it Lea and if nothing else have a blast working on it.

I dunno what his problem is. . . . I don't have a garage but I managed to spend some time on VOAB over the winter.
