what mechanical works are you doing now that you are locked in your house

Took advantage that my son got stuck with us (he was about to move to another city) to repaint the inside of the house. Fortunately we are getting a lot of help(?) from our dog...

Working on a friend's original 72 Tii, getting it roadworthy with several underhood projects, brake system rebuild, and replacing the ac system. I've not been around one of these much and have now fallen in love with the little fuel injected engine and overall mojo. WANT. BMW at its best.

Be careful, they are like peanuts. I am down to one (not a tii).
Love to see an origial tii with original wider steel wheels and caps. Going to try to put on a new fuel pump tomorrow. Maybe take the long way to the grocery store at the end of the week.

And there is alway work at the shop ( because auto mechanics are sooo essential)

Today we fired the 10:1 3.5 triple weber car

This weekend was building the M90 car

Thursday we got our new fun toy -3.0 with 10.5:1 compression with special crank and rods

Not sure how mechanical but...

Replacing the door switches on my microwave. Can you guess which one was bad?

Fixing a leak in my garage. That is my dashboard in that box. My project car dashboard has water damage. Thankfully it was untouched.

Replacing the posts on my fence that collapsed. I don’t normally use concrete forms but the fence is on a slope:

So far I've undertaken the following on the CSL since I've had to work from home:

Had my Alpina mags refinished, now having tyres fitted;
Ordered carpet from KHM for the CSL;
Block off to be re-bored;
Ordered the last of the engine/gear box bits from W&N;
Sent off the steering rod to be lengthened for the RHD manual box;
Ordered some misc parts from Jaymic as they were literally closing the shop;
Sent my CSL radiator to be re-cored;
Had the starter motor re-conditioned.
Sent prop shaft off to be re-furbished;

Figured if things get bad here I want the parts handy so I can keep working on her. Will update the build thread soon.

Have also built a veggie garden, painted part of the house and drunk a lot of good wine :)
