Hey Mark..it happens all the time over here...i spend more time running down a $2.00 part that you can imagine.....there is NOTHING easy about putting together your own stuff..i been doing this since the early 80's..not always had a shop..straddled ditches, used tree limbs for pulling motors,i built my 70 camaro at age 16 in side yard and would cover the thing up a tarp after i was done...
i have the ut-most respect for people like yourself who get in there and try to get the job done...i have seen some of the best looking hot rods come out of a carport.....hey that were DEAN MOON STARTED "Moon eye's"...i guess what i am saying is the tools do not make the man or do the work for that matter ...lol...

hey listen to this...My buddy several years ago put together his Big block chevy in his laundry room and when he got it all together he could not get it out of the room...yes doors came off and some carpenter work had to be done....

LOL..
Brian
