All in fun (please no broken shock or serious issues!), what is the most current thing that is making you want to pull your hair out?

Here is mine.

Everytime I think I have painted every bolt on part, I come up on another one. Case in point, just got my spring hats to assemble the coilovers and put on the front suspension. Go to pull out the spindle adaptor brackets and guess what?! Need to paint them. So do I paint them and put them on later or listen to that little voice in the back of my head that keeps saying "ahhh, whats a little rust, lets get this thing on its wheels today...."

Mine is waiting on my engine builder. I dropped it off 4 weeks ago. I know he's busy, and he does excellent work, but, I WANT MY ENGINE! :mad:

Oh, well, he tells me it will be done at the end of the week. :confused:

For me, it's opening the door into my garage and seeing my Dodge Intrepid instead of a Cobra. :(

I'm in CA. Car in NM. 1187 Miles away.

Four days until I get back. Yeah, Yeah, San Francisco is very nice, but so is dropping a motor.

Installed the e-brake today. When I finished I pulled the handle up and the donor cable (the short one attached to the handle) snapped. :mad: I will be calling one of the vendors for a new one tomorrow.

Finding someone to paint that does not want my first born in exchange!

Getting the side pipes spaced away from the body (FFR is no help). Making my own spacers now.

Randal,
I made some of those spacers last year.

Today's project was mounting my new rear tires, Falken FK452. They are the first tires I have had with a "AA" traction rating.

Last headache: A passenger marred the paint with the shoulder strap. Second time that has happened! I must train the passengers better
