meangreen, I'll pay you to tell her and then deal with the aftermath. I'm hurrying, but still trying to make it good enough she will change her mind about cart life, drive it for many more years or be able to sell it to someone who gets it. I'm addicted.

There was a time when she really could care less about carts but now she takes our daughter riding through campground and woods and laughs the whole time. I have a nice cc Ds that I lifted and did work to but she is afraid to mess it up. She loves the g1 pictured and doesn't know that I am putting new tires on it as well as bumpers and rebuilt the front end. I hope she still likes it when Iam done. Other carts are stored and need work, 2 in trailer 2 in shed and rest in garage. I have a 1970 cc caroche stripped down and just hooked up with our local vocational school to work on body as a class lesson I just pay for supplies. Hope the do a good job. I am very Lucky that my wife is so laid back. Have a great weekend.

Ok so I am sitting in the woods camping with a cup of coffee searching craigslist and that was a mistake. There are so many great deals out there and I found 4 that I would love to get BUT I think I may be pushing it with the wife if I get anymore. I just picked up a 1969 spin display case that I always wanted and I am working on restoring that and then on Tuesday I picked up a industrial Delta planer complete in the trash. Haven't plugged that in yet but in great shape. To many projects, I just need to retire so I have more time. Have a great weekend.

Well, it's off the jacks and on the street. Finally finished the electrical, which was harder than I thought it would be. The new dash layout turned out to be exactly what I wanted. Super clean and simple. New seats are installed. Going to try and put back on a racing stripe and finish the flooring in the next week.

Your doing a great job. Looking at those picks makes me want to work on mine. I probably won't be doing much for a little while. Heading to hospital tomorrow morning with some back issues. I hope they can help. Keep up the good work.

@meangreenmachine72 - Hope your back is alright and wish you a speedy recovery. Can't stand hospitals.

Going to try and paint on the second racing stripe tonight. I'll post a pic soon.
