This weekend, I took apart one of my front brakes that was making noise, but looked fine. I put it back together and it wasn't making any noise so maybe a rock could have gotten into the caliper. Also replaced my other rear caliper since the boot around the piston was leaking a little bit. Unhooked my subs since they were causing my instrument panel to go crazy. All that was on the Caddy.

The Bonneville, I primered and undercoated the back half of the car and put the fuel tank back in.

The truck, I painted the exhaust, did some body work, and welded on my hood some more.

Today the engine comes out of the Bonneville. I'm sure I'll have a picture or three.

Nothing is working out this week. Last Thursday the guy didn't pick up that car until after 4, so that day was shot. Friday was single digit temps, so didn't get much done. The weekend had friends in from out of state, so no shop work. I need to get going today. I go back to work Thursday and would like to have it done. I don't think I'm going to make it, the wife keeps telling me to do this and that.
