I would lose my mind doing that I'm afraid. I get pissed off changing spark plugs.

Where I lose my mind is trying to tell myself to stop trying to do it all this winter.. it's supposed to be a multi year project and here I am trying to do it all now.
I just ordered front tubular A-arms and Proforged ball joints, now deciding on which coil overs i'm going with .. something that wasn't supposed to happen this year

Scored a deal last night .. I Stopped by Summit Racing last night and was combing through their demo sales section and found a set of Headman Silver Ceramic headers for my Camaro #HED-68616. Retail $516.99 got them for $200.. figured I couldn't go wrong since I had planned going with shortys anyway. :beers:

Scored another deal today at Summit Racing. I went with the intentions of buying a new Moroso oil pan ($265.99) since I need a new pan, and in their clearance/demo section they had the same style but a Weiand brand for $125. Saved myself $140

I changed a high beam and foglight build on my 2012 Camry yesterday. It pissed me off. The people that design this stuff should be lined up and repeatedly punched in the wiener.

Your new garage is a lot less cluttered than your old garage.

Did a little fab work on the dash console, made a panel to replace the old radio mount that will accept the newer single din style radios. .Going with the new 7" touch screen Sony Ax7000 which is supposed to be available mid May. 100 watts per channel and will have both front and rear view cameras

Spent another $2600 on a polished serpentine conversion system from Concept One, complete with A/C compressor, water pump, Alt, PS pump and all the pulleys and brackets.

And this is what it'll look like once I get it all on except polished instead of the brushed look
