Default I can not remember the last time I posted here, been a long time.

Hi Everyone,

Just stopped by to let you know how the 91 GT convertible is doing. Finally got it in to get the frame straightened out on the front after the wreck, that took a while, seems like every time I'd get the money saved up to do it some major would come up, ie hospital bill, appliance going out, etc...

So it sat in my shop, I lost interest. Every time I needed to work on something I had to pull it out and let it set in the yard without a top that wasn't good. If it was forecast to rain I had to empty our patio and park it under there. I was really on the verge of just selling it. But I didn't

Fast forward to the present. Finally got the new convertible top installed last week. glass rear window, new pads, cables every thing is new. Looks really good. Ordered a smog pump bracket this week so I can put on my smog pump eliminator pulley, so I can run the correct belt.

Still have to take it back to the frame shop, need to move the radiator support over, I've got a big gap between the driver door and fender and a really small gap on the passenger side.

Plans still include subframe connectors, new brakes all the way around. Sill debating on the 5 lug conversion with all the other things going on that probably won't happen. Then I'll start on the interior.

I do have a starter/battery problem, when I first start it up it starts fine, after driving it and I shut it off it's hard to start. Acts like the starter is dragging. There have been times I thought I was stranded, but it always finally starts.

Feeling good enough to work on it is a problem for me now. I know I was still on the site in 03 when I had my first 3 stints put in. I had 2 more in 06. Cardiolgist just put me on emdur and 24 hr time release nitro pill. I've been on it before and another dr took me off. Any way till your body gets use to it you have headaches, so for 3 days I've had a bad headache hoping soon they will subside.

Also, I have become extremely claustrophobic which is not good when your working off your back under a car. Causes me to have panic attacks. Some days I'm normal and doesn't bother me, other days I can't stay under the car.

Well that pretty much brings you up to date with me, without all the drama of the past few years. lol

Hope everyone is doing well.

I'm going to try and be on more, don't seem to have a lot of time for playing on the internet anymore. But hopefully things will slow down.

Hey, Delos!!! Good to hear from you!
While I don't have the time-release nitro, I am very familiar with the headaches it can cause!!! I have you on my prayer list.
I'm glad you're making progress on the car. I'm making some on LNor too.
