    Maybe it's just me... but I have no motivation to work on anything in hot weather (anything above 90 and I complain /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif)... therefore, I am getting nothing done on any vehicles.

    Of course, when it's winter, it's "too cold" (although it would be preffered to this heat), and in the spring it's too wet, and when the temperature is just right, there are too many bugs.

    Maybe I'm just too picky.

    I prefer the term Lazy over Unmotivated /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I've been plenty lazy with my Xploder... had lots of opportunities to paint the dern thing and every time I come up with an excuse not to... Of course Sunday I broke down and put a layer all the way around except the roof, so it's starting to change... first time since May though /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Yes it doe's! I'm the same way, when it's 65-70 outside, it's prime time to be in the shop, or outside wrenching on the truck. When it's Hot as it is now,105*-106*, I do nothing but sit in the house [AC] and drink refrigerated water, and read 4x4 magazine's that I did'nt have time to read earlier.

    I have a real exciting life when it's hot. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I have a "Ratech" laser heat sensing gun, I shot the wooden step's on the deck today, 176* on wood! Concrete was a measly 128* /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
