with a whole world of things to worry about, never underestimate the therapeutic value of stripping paint. its +15 degrees in the garage, i have a head full of nicotine, Coalesce blasting in my ears and a big ol' smile on my ugly mug.
these are things you can only know when you work on your own stuff. regardless of what you are doing, it always feels better when you know you've done it with your own hands. this is the only way to say something is truly yours.
