Realistic expectations.

After rebushing the carbs, I'd gotten to a point where the Amazon was in pretty good order mechanically. The body on the other hand... well, a trailer queen she is not.

For a variety of reasons, I've been putting off body work for a while. First off, body work involves a lot of dusty sanding, noisy grinding and banging, and spraying of smelly, noxious chemicals. Work that isn't terribly conducive to being performed in a backyard.

In Absentia.

I've been averaging about one post per year as of late. Not great, but here's my excuse:

I bought a fixer-upper about two years ago which has become the focus of my time, energy, and money. The Amazon has taken a backseat to- oh, you know- functional plumbing.

One of the reasons I wanted to move to a house was so I'd have the space and freedom to work on the Volvo.  (In fact, the place we ended up in doesn't even have a garage.)  Ah, the irony.

Anyway, I've been inexplicably moved to work on the Amazon as of late, so some updates may be forthcoming!
