Always leave it up to the next guy to worry about the details. People have pointed out that my car has flat floors, I say,
"I can't see the floors when I'm driving!"

there is this constant battle with philosophy and motivation. is this artifact reflective of my ideals or respect for what the collective po's were able to acheive. i have to find comfort knowing everything comes in its own time

so i've started cutting out the floors i'm finding fiberglass mat, resin flat metal with pop rivits, more fiberglass on bottom and masonite under pedal cluster. thats how they used to fix floors? (broad definition of fix)

when i got this place i saw that i could dig out that planter and put a pit. a couple of timbers and i can work on the bottom. but if i do another car i must fill it in and use a rotisserie. red berry rain is an unpleasant weather condition
