Contemplating a restoration project

So my old GF left me so I have some extra time now to take on new projects.

I met this chick two years ago in my extended work circle. She's really pretty, 45yo, kids grown and gone, great job and very smart. What I like most is her really inappropriate sense of humour. The first thing she told me when I met her is "you remind me of Marc Maron, he's an annoying jew too" Whenever I see her we get along great and I've contemplated dating her before.

However, she is too fat for me, around the 150 range on a 5'2 frame. So I'm contemplating taking on this project and restoring her to her 2005 weight. I've done this a couple of times before but with much younger women in the 20-25 age range. Is she too old to save? Her bones are good, nice legs, tiny ankles, just a giant stomach and ass. I'm in uncharted territory here. Never dated a woman in their 40s.

she's a lot like my wagon, has lots of pluses but some serious problems that need to be addressed.

Had dinner with her tonight and a PPI at my place.

Overall.. The suspension is good. Exhaust and intake are well maintained. She has great headlights and a solid maintenance record plus the ECU is updated and good to go. Cooling system seems ok but there are indications she might be prone to overheating.

As detailed before.. the body has too much sound proofing and auxiliary modifications. I need to strip out all that and get her down to a competitive weight. Fortunately I don't see any immediate obstacles so I'm ready to start cutting the fat tomorrow.

But of course as with any new project, I will need to organize my tool box so I have the right tools when I need them. These projects are long and hard but in the end if I put in the effort now, the results will be well worth the expense.
