It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it.
The box of parts was, largely, a disappointment because it was missing parts and some parts were not correct...meaning that, while I gained parts, I wound up with parts I didn't need/want. There are a few cool parts but, for what was spent, I'm disappointed.
This is supposed to be the weekend the whole shebang gets installed in the car - I'm doubtful that the car will be functional by Sunday. If I do somehow succeed - the shitty part is that it's supposed to rain all weekend. So even if I do get it all in and functional, I can't drive it. The floor has holes in it and I have no functional wipers...and I don't really want to take the maiden trip in the rain - have something go wrong and have to sit in the rain waiting for roadside assistance to show up. They're not exactly fast.
I don't know why but I'm seriously lacking motivation to get this car back together. I should be stoked to get this thing back together so I can drive it - that is, after all, what I wanted to do a few months ago - but there's a large part of me that simply doesn't give a shit anymore. It's hard to get things done or search for parts when apathy is the strongest feeling related to this car.
It'll get back together - eventually - if it doesn't happen this weekend. I just wish I was more enthusiastic about it.
