That's the definition of a car guy with A.D.D.
For whatever reason, I gave this some thought and wanted to clarify; it isn't that I cannot stay focused on one thing for a period of time or until completion, it is that I continually come up with new cool things to do which further delay completion of the project. I have thus far attempted and finished most of the "ideas" I have come up with, keeping in mind that none of these were kits per se, I purchase components and built them. Granted, none of these things are earth shattering, revolutionary or overly unique, but when I look at the overall magnitude of them and factor in that in most cases I started front scratch, I am impressed I have come as far as I have. Some of these things are;
4 link suspension - design and build
4 wheel disc brakes w/rear parking brake - configure and build
In cabin brake proportioning valve
hydraulic clutch system
EFI 6 Barrel (I built the fuel system to include baffling the tank)
flush mounted turn signals
Flush mounted right rear semi automatic antenna
LED tail lights
Dash contour fitting console (this is still a work in progress)
Neon SRT seats - had to adapt the Ebody seat tracks
Power steering system with high pressure pump, regulator, remote reservoir and gauge
Nutserts throughout the engine compartment for everything that mounts to the firewall of inner fenders
Fiberglass glove compartment with EFI computer mounting (hides comp but allows access)
3/16 formed and gusseted lower radiator support
Inner fender braces
rear axle housing drain
There are a number of others as well that I cannot think of right now, but you get the picture. The good news is that in the beginning there were all of these ideas that I had, however now they are significantly diminished with only a couple still floating around in my head. I like fabricating but it takes a lot of time and energy, and now I am wanting to get this car done. The other side of it is that the lengthy amount of time has allowed me to develop new skills and obtain new tools which allow me to work faster and produce a better result.
When I started building this car, I decided that I wanted to try to do things I had never done and learn new things along the way. I have pretty much done this and am now wanting to see the car done; that doesn't keep the good idea fairy from popping in once in awhile though...
