If you drop a piece on the floor, you never scoot back to look for it. If you do, you will roll over and break the part. Those parts always land in the direct and immediate path of the wheel.

After taking and  sharing pictures of your work,  You suddenly realize  imperfections  that you couldn't see before hand but too late to correct.  (Taken from past & present experience and I should use my Opti Visor more often )

This.  Especially on my first post on here, the Galaxie 48 Chevy Fleetline.  I didn't notice until AFTER I posted that one of the windshield wipers had flipped off and was lying on the fender.  Duh!

that's why I take a ton of in progress shots. You see things in those photos you don't see at the bench!
