Actually worked on the Vette this weekend!

I'm wondering if hell froze over or something. :D Took an extended 4 day weekend and got to spend about a day of it working on the car. I was pretty psyched since it was the first time in about a year. I was able to connect the driveshaft to the differential (I highly recommend doing this BEFORE dropping the body :willy: ) and spent the rest of the time sanding body filler.

I also ordered quite a few supplies including some new sanding blocks, sandpaper, some Rage Gold body filler, a gallon of slicksand and a quart of epoxy primer. I've cleared the next few weekends and hope to get back into the Vette quite a bit over the next few months. Ideally I'd like to get it in sanding primer before it gets too cold. Better get my butt in gear! :cheers:
Someday I'll finally be able to drive my Vette, but for now I'll just admire all the pieces... :willy:
