Not much car stuff going on for me while I recover..which is long and slow....
But a real talented restoration guy and I just agreed to let him repaint my Thing which is burgundy....back to the original orange...he will do the needed minor bodywork, replace all gaskets and shoot it. I am excited to see it done.
It hasn't been driven in a year so if will be great to get it fired up and rolling.
At least I can get this project moving...

I like the red better reminds me of coral red! Yeah, you should start the car and drive it a little at least once a month or two. Good to get it hot. And if not driving much you can go a year between oil changes. Letting them sit for years ruins things like rings and bearings.
