Yeah but I think mine and yours are much different than his, he is a big kid 6'2 probably close to 350lb so can become a monster if he wants to. The problem is that he quit football very quickly and has never pushed himself at anything from what I can tell. He says that he tries but then when I ask what he means by trying I would hardly even consider it any effort. He has had a very hard time passing his learners permit test, he says he tries but that is going out with someone once a week to drive. I tell him that if it was a real priority he would be studying that book day and night or least some every day. He says yeah but I don't see him doing it, it is pretty much all the same at the gym I had to start him with zero weight on anything because he just doesn't have it in him. Now after a month or so he was happy that he was bench pressing 95lb which is what he thought a strong girl at the gym does but she was only using it to warm up. I have told him all along that the weight you lift doesn't really matter as long as you are using correct form and pushing yourself until you fail so that you can work the muscle. But now he has tried getting into the faking it method of saying he is pushing himself, I keep telling myself that he will eventually get it but don't know that he will.

Sooner or later he's going to learn:


It's his choice of how he's going to suffer.

Oh trust me I've been trying, figured that car stuff is the closest we are going to get. He fell in love with a girl at the gym who had just got out of an engagement and did some vertical cardio with a few of the members at the gym. So I tried telling him that she isn't what he was looking for since he wants a relationship, but he was convinced since they would text and she was trying to help him do cardio that she had interest. I give him credit that he shot his shot with her, but obviously that failed and now she avoids talking to him pretty much at all since I imagine he tried too hard. Trying making him use that to push himself at the gym but it didn't work, so here's to

Well I am very angry and disappointed. The block I purchased isn't going to get built. Seller didn't have all necessary parts for it IE; missing Caps for the Connecting Rods and was still missing a Journal (Rear). I am right back where I started. Going to be saving $$ for the Crate 350, I am not having a good experience getting an Engine on FaceBook Market, and I am not going to buy one from that market again. :mad:

Did a bunch of measuring which led to internal debating which led to reaching out & texting buddies to share ideas/thoughts for some feed-back on direction.

In the 11th hour I decided the OE stuff is coming out & I'll test fit the Heat-Only box for clearance. If it doesn't work (or I don't care for the look), I'll be making a template to fabricate my own closeout panel that will accommodate aftermarket A/C & clear the taller tubs.
I am working on installing a factory type AC into my Caballero. If you are willing to sell some parts, I still need mounting brackets for the PS pump AC compressor plate, and the intermediate bracket between the compressor and upper rear mount, and also the extra groove pulleys for the crankshaft and water pump. Also need the refrigerant hose from the condenser that goes up across the radiator core support to the airbox.

Drove her to work, now repairing and refinishing more interior parts.

Has anyone had luck cutting a crank door panel to accommodate power window switches? (Power window car, manual panels on it from when I bought it.)

Don't know if I want to attempt to do that, or just relocate the window switches to the center console.
Not sure, but I think that the back side of the lower panels have markings for cutting the switch holes for the locks. I do not know if there are any markings in upper panels for window switches.
