Why start another thread?
He closed his own thread himself and will re-open it once he get the car back.

[meh, i'm editing this] I think that thread was, overall, incredibly supportive.

With that said, let's leave the guy alone, I'm sure he's suffering more than anyone else over it. I think this thread should be deleted.

and this goes in Off Topic. IMO

As a person who has waited, and waited, and waited on a painter to finish his "Sistine Chapel" project to be delivered...always late and never without grief all I can say is give Astroman a break....it's out of his control and no amount of badgering is going to change that.

For me, I just check back here every few days and I know as soon as he's got something of substance to post (pictures I mean!) he will.

Otherwise it's just a waste of bandwidth to keep noodling him.

It's ok guys. I just closed my thread (for now) because it wasn't getting any real updates other than "maybe this weekend" followed by "maybe this weekend", followed by.... you get it. It's now gotten so bad with the wife it's caused some major problems as we've nearly missed out on our entire summer. Had lots of plans to go camping, traveling, visit the coast and take her to Olympic National Park on the Olympic Peninsula. The extra money we've had to spend with the other two vehicles just to keep them running, insured, and licensed (with one of the cars being a turbo project car with a transmission that only has 2 of the 4 forward gears and wasn't even supposed to be driven) has cost us over $4k now and I wasn't able to get the pool done in time for my wife's physical therapy which means she will be bed and couch ridden when the weather gets cold.

All in all a lot of my excitement for getting the car has faded. With no updated pics in a month and with EVERY weekend being another disappointment depression is starting to kick in. I'm planning on picking the car up on Friday if he doesn't deliver. To hell if it's done or not, as long as it drives.

I'm sorry Astroman, I wasn't aware you had so much crap dumped on you. I was just teasing you about your troubles with your painter. Hang in there.

There you go. Nothing but respect from me on that one.

I can handle a little teasing but I was really starting to get embarrassed with how long it's taken. I'm afraid to mention any progress without pics or seeing it in person.

No worries man I have been there. But trust me when I say when the day comes you will be over joyed. For a moment I loved my car more than my Girlfriend
