Welcome to my Bugeye project

Welcome to my latest project. I am building a 1959 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite with a little twist. I'm putting in a 3.0 V-6 SHO engine.
Be sure to check back for updates on the progress and please leave a comment if you have any questions, feedback or advice for me.

only one day... a new record

so on my second day of working on the car (today) my wife says as she is pulling me away from the garage

"NOOOOOOOOOOO, don't work on the car, pay attention to me"

only after one day!!!! i thought this would take at least a week, week and a half tops, but she broke that record quickly

we'll see how this project goes with her constantly pulling me away from it

next record to watch for is for when she complains about how the car just sits in the garage and its never going to get done. stay tuned for that one

If I were Chara, I would come up with some sort of deal....like you can work on the car if you promise to rub her feet and back for an hour. Or you can work on the car if you promise to take her to her favorite resturant and then her choice of a movie (even if it is the cheesiest chick flick ever)....how does that sound?

seriously - you make me sound like such a whiner..
did you happen to explain my very long day in the ER and how i spent the whole day trying not to kill people..
and how the next day you were leaving for the weekend?
and how you spent the whole night prior working on the damn thing?

Chara...you are not a whiner...you just have needs that are obviously not being met! heehee

They make small wine coolers that would fit in your garage. I suggest stocking it with her favorite wine. She will be begging you to go work on the car and, she will follow you!
