Not in any priority order:

Install new stereo in W124 (Necessary harness mods cause me to procrastinate on this one).
Finish painting the media room.
Paint wrought iron gate and fence.
Restain playground set.

Endless rain is really putting a crunch on the outdoor projects...I even have a couple of flats of florals I can't plant!

1. Fix rust on my TD's fenders and get spots painted.
2. Then buff the whole car.
3. Refinish Bundts.
4. Reupholster cabin cushions on my boat.
5. Put floors and fenders on my Scout.
6. Run new brakelines on Scout.
7. Cut down a half dozen big @$$ trees in my backyard.

Now my head is starting to hurt so I'll stop at that.

kmaysob, is that a '64 International Scout 80 Camper/Motorhome or a Scout trailer? I know that International offered the package for the 80 but I've never actually seen one, even on paper. If it's an IH Scout got any pics? I'd love to see some!

No, I always complete every project I start in no time at all. I don't have a "To Do" List. I have an "Already Done" list.







. . . actually, I just try not to let anybody know what's on mine. That way I don't look so lame.

I just moved from a 1600 sq ft house to a 870 sq ft apartment, and i got rid of a LOT of stuff. I do have two projects left to complete. I need to finish decorating my apartment (new artwork, lighting, and accessories) and I need to get working (mostly cleaning) an old spinet piano i just acquired.

Hmm

1. Fix the cruise control in the 300D.
2. Install the small Bazooka tube I purchased.
3. Get around to doing suspension and bushing bits on the entire car.
4. (Maybe) replace waterpump...a phantom leak comes sometimes, and goes away.
5. Keep eye on any areas where small rust appears (only a few) and sand, and repaint.


I really like this car. I figure once I get out of college, make some better money, I'll give it the complete premium paintjob/bodywork it deserves. Until then its a 10ft. car.
