    Yeah no surprise but I have none at the moment. I should be at the garage working on the S10. I have everything to put the 383 together. I could have had it together and fired up by now if I really wanted. I also have everything to fab the transmission/transfer case crossmember for the doubler, again I just haven't. I need to finish the cage work, plumb the fuel system, mount a few things, get tires, fab shock mounts, and it is ready to hit the trails.... So wtf am I doing sitting on my ass? I just can't get motivated to go over to the garage and work on it. I think school ruined me. I worked in a nice shop where I had room to work, light to see, and a welder that I could do quality work with, now I come home and have none of that :rolleyes: I need a new welder and a bender. Doesn't help that I work 6 days a week for my dad who then yells at me about why I haven't gotten anything done on the S10(while he sits in a lounge chair and takes a nap because he too is warn out from a days work). Ahh life is wonderful. I have no money to buy tires, I think if I could see the 42"s on it I'd get a little more motivated... Soon hopefully. Stupid whiny rant, commentary, thing, off.

    You are SOOOOOO lucky!! I go to work outside and it is -15 or 20. Work outside all day, then try to work on my rigs outside. I"m damned tired of wrenches sticking to my skin, not to mention nuts and bolts. I sure wish June would get here, so it would stay above freezing at night.

    no I don't have a heated garage, so that doesn't help the motivation at all. The new garage will be heated, so I'm kinding of expecting to become motivated when the S10 is finally in my own backyard and in a heated, new, bigger, better lit garage.

    You should invite the SPONGE over Sled Dog, im sure hed be willing to help, he lives right by you.:laugh:


    Also the motivation thing, its gone up to 5 or 6 shots of expresso in the morning to get the morning started. :D That might "fix" it. :D

    If by "right by you" you mean 2 hours away, yes he does, haha.

    Morning? who has a morning? I'm at work for every morning during the week and when I get a free morning I use it to catch up on sleep. Someday I will get motivated and finish this damn S10!! I am really thinking about tubing the front end now.... Think this coming weeks pay may go towards a bender...

    Yeah the big thing is having a heated garage-our garage is insulated but not heated so going out there to work on the burban is getting harder to do with this cold weather- big jacket ,gloves just make it to hard to work on stuff and u cant pick up wrenches or bolts and the gloves end up soaking wet with some kind of fluid.

    One more year till a big heated garage- i cant wait:D

    All I need to do to finish my welding trailer is a couple of wire runs... but Ive been at it so long that it sat all weekend while I did other honeydos....Im just burned out on it

    it was like it was speaking to me from the shop... "here I am you lazy bastard come get me if you dare"... .. oh well.. I sat down here and typed to you guys instead... sometimes I think if I wait long enough work will do itself...
    it never does mommy... whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
