Hardest for me is to find my reading glasses to actually see what I plugged where. Finding them on top of my head is the cherry on the cake....

Lol, I'd probably lose it as well.
What I really need to do is get a jar or magnetic dish or something to put the bolts & screws in.

I have magnetic dishes full of hardware sticking to metal surfaces all over my shop. They are pretty cool. Cheap at HF. Sometimes free.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
