Here we are a year alter, and I've done very little. This plandemic crap, along with our state politics...have put any thoughts of finishing my car on hold for a long time. No place to go, nothing to do. I managed to get the whole front-end assembled. That's about all. A friend and I had to remove the door glasses, to put in pieces that weren't there. Now, there's no holes in the NOS door-skins, to figure out where and what mounts to them. YEA!!! I'm sick of this thing. It's 80%+ finished, and I can't make myself work on it. Why??...it'll just sit in the garage anyways. No functions to go to.
I have been where you are many times, as you get to the end of the project it seems like it gets harder to work on it, its like a mental block. I am somewhat in a similar situation on a clients car. I had it bad on my Cuda, took me almost 14 years to build it and the last year was the hardest. All this said, you just have to push through it and keep thinking what it will be when done.
At least for me I think it is a subconscious worry that something I did wasn't done right and I will have to go back and deal with it; kind of like the fear of failure.
I've been on this one..... on-and-off, for 20+ years. I've built and restored a half-dozen cars in the interim. This car just doesn't get my inspiration. I've got a ton of time, money, ideas, and fabbing into it....but I just don't seem to care about it. The front-end picture posted above, is from August....and I just went out to the shop to work on it for the first time since, yesterday. The whole car has a ton of dust on it. All it really needs, is the finished interior installed, front-end alignment, and A/C charge. After 45 years of this stuff, I think I've finally had enough.
Just can't make myself work on it. 45 years and 300 cars later....I don't really like cars anymore. Trying to sell stuff to most of the public these days, is like dealing with window-lickers without money. It's very frustrating. Doesn't matter what you're selling....cars, guns, bikes, beanie-babies, dirt..LOL
