If it isn't obvious by now, I'm deep into my 1979 Ford Fairmont build. It's been almost 2 years since I started working on the car and I've done a ton of work in that time, but theres still more work to go.

When I shot this video I had just installed the hydraulic clutch assembly into the car. I think this was the first time I had installed something in the car in some time. It seems that up to that point all I was doing was removing stuff. After installing the clutch master, it seemed like it was the point where things were going to start going back together.

Now that I'm past that point of the build, it seems like things have gotten a little easier. Sure, there's still more work to do, but it seems to be moving closer to the conclusion rather than getting father away from it.

Have any of you experienced a similar point in your builds or repairs?
