I was dreading someone posting to this thread

I haven't done a thing. The weather is cooling off now... time for me to plan some weekends in the garage. Now I just need my wife to stop filling my weekends with stuff to do.

You got that right. The 3 weeks I'm away for classes next month sure isn't helping the cruiser.

Update your sig line already.

I'm out of town for work for a few weeks... I'll try to get those dimensions for you once I'm back. No updates. I've been buying too many other toys when I really just need to keep my focus and finish the BIG toy.

Nope. I've totally been dragging my feet. Mostly because the cruiser budget has been zilch lately. Sorry about not getting back with the radiator dimensions... its 28" x 19"

I made progress on it this month... I unburied it about 3/4 of the way from all the stuff I'd piled on/around/under it. How sad.

I finally finished my build and decided to see if you'd ever finished yours. (guess not). Let's see some progress!

Crap, someone posted to this thread again. Thanks Jonathan.

Still nothing. I just finished painting the house and plan to re-roof next month. After that I've got some fence repair and then the plan is to get back on the Land Cruiser. Jenn's on board to... she's determined that I'm going to have this thing finished by spring.

Started out an unhappy electrical engineer. Now I'm a happy cop.

Thanks for the comments!

No updates. Got most of the house projects wrapped up for winter... but like everyone else, $$$ is tight, so any free time I have I end up working overtime to pay the bills.

Thanks for the encouragement

The motivation is there, but the pocketbook is weak.

I know your frustration dude. I have 2 builds going on but funds right now are keeping me from finishing both. Plenty of motivation here too. I recently started gathering stuff around the basement & began another build As long as I can keep busy on one of them w/o spending much $$$, that's all I can do right now. Have you made out your punch list yet? Keep it goin'
