Problem with that is her sister controls the finances so if the BIL owed me money, the two ladies would have been yip-yapping about it. She then would have been up my BIL's ass about why I owed him, what I borrowed, and where he went with it when I "paid him back."

He and I went to high school together so we still get along fine, but I bust his balls about it occasionally when the topic comes up. lol

if she controls the finances, surely she makes 80%+ of the money, yeah?

Or she controls money she doesnt make?

Uh oh.....this guy going downhill real quick lolol

He has a job so I have him the option to pay for half and we will work on it together otherwise it would be mine and he would have to ask permission to drive it. He immediately said take the money out of my account lol.
Nice. I am starting to think about getting a project for my 13 year old. Not sure yet how much he will be in to it, but I feel like I need to try to see if it is his thing. Worst that can happen is that I have another cool car and an explanation for my wife. Lol

Replaced the instrument cluster gauge lights in the 90 vert tonight. The engine temp light was burnt out. I decided on white LED ones. Turned out great.

Switching to night shift, so what better way to try and stay up late. Got done around 2am.

That burnt out light would have bugged me constantly until I fixed it. Nice use of time. That instrument panel looks great "under the lights".

It definitely drove me crazy. The engine temp gauge was also very inconsistent. I replaced the sensor and "bam" fixed!

Well, I wanted to take a break this winter since I have spent the last 2 working on my 65. Unfortunately for me that's not going to happen. Got to love hot rodding and modifications LOL...

I noticed fluid under the 65. Turns out my hydraulic throw out bearing is leaking now. First my hydraulic master cylinder went out. I used an Amsoil fluid first and I don't think the seals in my system liked it very much. So, I switched to the Willwood fluid. Replaced my master cylinder and no issues there with the Willwood fluid.

Guess the seals in my throw out bearing finally went out because of the first fluid I used.

I'm doing research right now. The seals for the throw out bearing are only $20. But if they fail again I have to remove the transmission again. So, I'm looking for a system that keeps all the hydraulic fluid outside of the transmission.

Looking at this kit from Modern Driveline. I would have to install a regular throw out bearing and clutch fork, but at least any future leaks can be addressed without removing the transmission....

I didn't think this through. I should have put the 93 reef on the lift for winter storage. I have a new catback exhaust I can install....

The next two days are suppose to hit 50 degrees....I could move cars around before work...

PCI Radios started their black Friday sale yesterday. The radios for our Can Am should be here tomorrow. The cargo box I want is also in sale, but I'm going to watch it until Monday just in case it drops a little bit more.

The plan is to do a full paint correction on the 350 this winter as it has a lot of scratches. I tested an area below the window on drivers side door tonight. Turned out great.

The stripes are really scratched up as well. Hopefully I can get those looking better.
