Summer Wrenching

Bench Racing

Summer's fast approaching and if you're still stuck at home, it might be time to get wrenching on that project you've been meaning to work on.

I know that ever since reviewing Fox Body Mustang Restoration: 1979-1993 I've been chomping at the bit to get back to wrenching on my 5.0 Mustang projects: the Survivor, the LX, and the GT.

It would be nice to really drive the Survivor and the LX for the first time and have the GT returned to the road. It's been a long, long time since my '95 Mustang GT and I have gone on an adventure together and there are so many places we didn't get a chance to see.

If I had the space, I'd totally jump in and do some summer wrenching, too, but since I don't, you'll have to have my share of the fun for me.

That is one advantage to being a car nut: if you're stuck at home, it means free time for Car Projects — but, obviously not if you're sick.

When I first got the Survivor '87 Mustang LX, I took a week off from work to rip into it and within two days of doing so, got so sick I couldn't even crawl out of bed — and was that way the rest of my "vacation." I guess that's what I get for trying to work on a car in February in an unheated garage. I will say, I don't miss that part about working in the Old Classics and Performance Garage — that February was really cold.

That experience, amongst many others, is why I'm planning to install HVAC in the garages and shops in my Hobby Complex.

That's all I've got for this week, enjoy your wrenching!
