...you are considering changing out your white shower for a black one to hide the tell-tale signs of polishing
...you know to take your polishing rags to the laundromat rather than use your own washer
...you have thousands of rivet stems & heads littering your backyard work area

Along those lines,

...you find rivet heads inside your shoes, sawdust in your socks, and polish on your ankles, even though you were wearing long pants the whole time.

Yep, Chaos, had those too!

...you find black POR-15 handprints on your hips, even though you were wearing two layers of clothes
...you ask your friends to borrow a 1/4 cup of rivets instead of sugar

You have pieces of aluminum, electrical parts, plumbing parts, cabinet parts and who knows what it is laying all over because you can't concentrate on just one thing!!

You think restoring an Airstream and parking in the garage are mutually exclusive.

InsideOut's shower comment got me thinking....

Here is my take on it...

You might be restoring an Airstream if....

You get a certain satisfacton in watching the slurry mixture of Nuvite and oxidization as it washes off your skin and hair in the shower and swirls down the drain!

My GF has a great line everytime I do polishing..
I normally turn up at home and she looks at my face and says..
"Oh, Honey......"

B.o.a.t.

. . . you think maintaining your vintage wooden boat is relatively inexpensive.

Sigh. Big sigh.

Your wife is sick and tired of you spending all your time working on the Airstream. She wishes you were having an affair. She is thinking about divorce. My wife is not to that point but she is tired of Airstream this and that. Between fixing the Airstream and tornado damage it has been a rough year. Now if we just had a full time baby sitter.

you have grease under your fingernails permanently, and paint stains all over the rest of you!

Now I don't care WHO you are, that is just down right funny!!! And, well, maybe just a little bit true? Thanks MacC.

… you long for the project to be complete, yet continually look for things you can add to the project.

This!!! A thousand times this, every time I step foot in the door.
