Sometimes I get overwhelmed at what I want to get done. That can be true whether it's work, home projects, and car projects. Since this is (mostly) a car blog, I'll focus there.
In May of 2020 I found and bought the Mustang. The previous owner stated he wouldn't drive it anywhere, but that it did at least start. His biggest concern was the transmission and that it didn't shift well or easily. Given that information, I rented the Uhaul trailer and towed it home.
The list of things to get it on the road wasn't terribly long, but it did need to get done. Brakes rebuilt (i put fluid in the master cylinder and it proceeded to spit fluid out of many different orifices), dry rotted tires replaced, transmission rebuild.
The transmission rebuild was user error (although it does leak, and I still haven't poked around to see if it's something as simple as the coolant lines). He didn't know how to operate the B&M shifter. The brake system, I completely replaced everything. New tires and wheels, and for good measure, rebuilt the steering system when the old steering box went kablooie. Throw in the title woes from an out of state title signed in the wrong spot, and the previous owner moving to another state, and the start of Mustang ownership was a bit frustrating.
Anyway, I know everyone has heard the above before. When I look at the Mustang at times and think of the work still to come, I easily overlook what has already been accomplished. It wasn't until the middle of October 2020 that I was able to title and register the Mustang. I haven't even been on the road a year! No, I didn't go all Overhaulin' and have the car done in a week, but I have managed to get a lot done in a year. A previously undrivable vehicle is now drivable. That's pretty cool.
That's my self affirmation pep talk for today. Now I can go back to searching for parts for the Mustang and GX.
