A word of advise for the dishearted ! Don't ever just stop have a 66 that I let get into pitiful shape because life got in the way & I'll get to it one day from about 20/25 years ago. Retired 4 years ago got the money pit in Dec & find hey I still like to work on the Fords. Got 2 newly acquired projects waiting in the wings just got to get a workspace besides the yard where it somewhat dry & out of the sun.So I have been restoring my car for about 30 years. I cannot name the number of times I walked away, sometimes for a week or two but sometimes for several years. Real life and family always take precedence, and I learned many moons ago to stop working on something when frustration levels rise. Not that the tension cannot be overcome, but (speaking for myself) things seem to get broken or made worse when working while angry.
Every time I feel like I am getting close to done I realize how many little things are needed. So now I answer "never" when people ask when it will be finished.
