    Been posting most of my Cobra repairs on the FFR Rules forum on Facebook during the past 8 months or so. My current situation down here in Southern Maryland has been abby-nomal. Weather hasn't been cooperated nor has the storage facility owners due to painting the exterior for the last 3 weeks, coming up on 4 weeks. The distance and time it takes for me to come up for lunch on Fridays or Saturday's breakfast and then come back here consumes a lot of time away from the days that are perfect to work on my car. And if you ever drive on 495, 301, (not so much on rt4), the traffic and crazies are in abundance. Hopefully, by mid-summer I'll be done with all of that needed fixes, replacements, or repairs, I'll be back on the road to make some cruising and meets.

    Some on the list of things:
    Alternator, tires, wiring, wire replacements and repairs, gages, lines (electrical and oil press), rr lower control arms, fresh air ducts, brake ducts (pass), lights, mirror relocation, e-brake handle, Oil pan leaks, water pump & timing chain cover leaks, throttle body, cold air filter cleaning, etc....
    Then:
    Title, tag, and registration for the state of the People's Republican of Maryland.
     
  2. Dando, glad to here things are moving in a positive direction. You never asked for help? Are you using the base auto shop?

    Never thought to ask, well, working on the car is always a flip of dime of when I can get it. I’ve been to the auto shop on base, don’t like it. I’m weary about leaving it over night and long term. Because most of the work will take me a day or two to do. Can’t use their lifts, pipes are too low and drive it there, no tags.
    I’m good with taking my time and it gives me time to save up some funds
     
  4. About 35 miles away, right off rt5. I have 4 post, plus a bunch of tools if you need. I'll be down for CoC end of month. Will stop by if time permits.

    Dan,

    Nice work ... it is amazing how much time all this takes ... it seems to me that doubling or tripling the estimated time seems to be the norm for me.
