what did you do in your garage / shop and or driveway today ?


I've seen this thread on other sites , i'm not sure if one has been on here before.

It can be on anything , dont limit it to just your car 
examples :  family hauler , farm truck , lawn tractor , snow blower ,
woodworking project , etc etc  


its a good way to keep  motivated on your project/s .....  if your like me , somtimes you need a just a little incentive everynow & then to get back on track

Set the dwell.
Cleaned the front windshield with rainx pre cleaner, then rainx.
Detailed the dash a little bit.
Added air to the tires.
Looked underneath it...damm it's nice!
Looked at all the new oil spots on the driveway since I got it.

The Odyssey,

Rainx'ed the windshield.
Cleaned it up a bit inside for the Hershey trip tommorrow.

Took my 62 Parisienne on it's first drive since I finished putting it back together. The 283 pulls really hard. Forgot how much I love those engines. Also ad it appraised and took some pics for insurance renewal.

Put up some industrial shelving in the basement to store my parts. Installed heaters & drywall in the detached garage where 3 or 4 of the cars will live in the winter.

Didn't do anything in the driveway or garage, went and dropped my new car off for storage(temporarily)...Some neat stuff parked out there, owner didn't want a lot of pics taken.
Did manage to get a couple data tags. You'll have to tell me what kind of car they are...LOL

no room to do anything in either of my garages so I rented a 27 x 38 shop with a 27 x 14 loft. No heat but it has hydro. $250 a month all in. Plan to rent 2 spot for winter storage. Get rid of a lot of stuff from my garage so I have room to finish the 67 Mustang this winter.

Pretty good, the blue one was a 66, totalled from the back :(  , but the other one was an Acadian/Beaumont Severely T-Boned on the Drivers side, hit so hard the roof looks like a teepee.
