Call me crazy, I already know you do, but mine is going to be original colors, white body, white top, and green interior.   

Everyday, in anyway, do something, no matter how small, no matter how wrong, no matter what, just do something.  Someday it'll be done.  :)

With northern lights! :)

Shifted gears this weekend.  My Son Oliver's 94 Ford Ranger blew a head gasket.  Got it down to 'clean-up & build up'.  We're saving him a heap of $$$.  Got to buy new tools and everything.  That and some firewood.

Very proud to announce, we didn't break a single bolt.  Not even the exhaust manifold's.

No,
Nearly there?
I stare at that exhaust manifold and it just 'shivers me timbers'!

The one we did separate?  One entire hour to get one damned bolt to go back in!!!!!  :(

I had to grind it down to a spike, clean up the threads, and invite every kid in the neighborhood to help pry the exhaust here, there, and everywhere to line stuff back up.

I never have any luck with exhaust.  No matter what I try, it's off to the machine shop.

I agree the heat does things to exhaust making them a real pain in the ass to do
I have pulled heads with manifolds still on to make things easier when possible
