Working girl, again

Well, it's back to full-time work for me.
Still working Mon-Tues at the veterinary office. And studying my technician stuff so that I can do more than pick up poop. Today I start my second part-time job at our local Trader Joe's market. I have no idea what kind of schedule I will have, but altogether I will be back to working 40-45 hours a week. Not that I'm not grateful to have money coming in again, but it's really going to cut into my 'restoration' time.
I think if Steph and I had a better idea of what we are doing, the time wouldn't be such an issue. But I see us getting together and just looking at 'Babe' and saying, 'well, what now?'
I think (if it doesn't snow) in the next couple of weeks I am going to make time to go out and start cleaning up the interior. That is something we can at least do while the weather's kind of cold. I also want to see if I can use the shed placement and the surrounding trees to rig up a tarp, since I don't want to spend repair money on a car port. Not that we really have any specific funds set up, but anything I spend, I want to go directly into the car.
Hopefully, I'll have more pictures soon, too.

    I can see you are antsy to start working on the car. The cold weather is no fun. Maybe you can find some small jobs that you can bring in to the house?

    You'll be happy for the $$$ when you start looking at the cost of parts!

  2. this is true. at least we don't have a lot of parts to purchase. It's a lot of cleaning up and fixing what our brother did or didn't bother to do. I think the fun part is going to be taking apart the engine to clean it out in case of mice or other creatures living in it. also my friend, Rich who fixes up classic cars and races them had said that a crucial thing for us to do is getting rid of the old gas and changing the oil before eve trying to start up the engine. also one of our main goals is to put it neutral and move it the best that we can on flat ground, possibly moving the lawn mower and moving the 'Cuda to the patio. we can discuss all this a little later and make a list of 'first things first'.
