"There always comes a time when one must choose between contemplation and action"

Let's get one thing out there - the new Blogger layout blows chunks.  I can go on for 20 minutes about all of the things that I don't like about it - and maybe, just maybe, some of it is me 'growing old' and not adapting to new technology but holy shit is it way too fucking hard to get pictures to post in a specific order...used to be as simple as 'click on the pictures in the order you want them to appear' - that shit was too easy and now it doesn't work.
I had a nice deck of pictures for this post but I've fucked around with this post for a solid ten minutes and I'm over it.

Back to the subject at hand: I got the pan holes painted and today - expecting an absolute hassle, I was able to get the main brake line installed in what felt like 5 minutes.  The front lines are installed and I need to fiddle with the rears a bit - the brackets on the trailing arms and the pan don't align (one is swing axle, one is IRS) so I need to figure out what I'm going to do there.  The goal is to get the pan back in the car tomorrow and then fuck around with the other 50 things that need to be done to get it running.  I mean, at this point, I'd be happy to get it back on tires.  I should be able to get the pan back on tomorrow - barring any other weird shit from getting in the way.  It's the last warm weekend before Fall storms in and kills off any work that requires above 60°F temps.  Overall, the condition isn't up to my standards but I've had to get over that to get this car back together.  It's about getting it back together so it can sit all Winter in the garage.  I would like to drive it before snow falls but there's a lot to do to get to that point so I'm not getting my hopes up.
