Does your spouse ever get mad about you spending time on your ride?

I know my wife does. Gets pissed when ever I pop the hood or anything like that. Says I never work on her stuff. I have to say I'm going to my moms or somewhere else to do what I want to it. She says when I'm not working or away for NG I'm always outside tinkering. I think she is just jealous. Lol I just can't stand to be stuck inside the house. He'll if she would come outside she could help.

So what about you guys? I know my 4 boys love wheeling with me and the oldest( 13) loves helping me with my jeep.

I could easily spend a few hrs a day on mine, just cleaning, detailing, fixing, modding it.. My wife would kill me if I did that XD
The list of stuff that 'NEEDS' done does seem to keep growing quite a bit every week though...

we have several vehicles, and regular stuff is fine, cause they all need it, as for extras or mods.. as long as i show her vehicles some love from time to time i dont get much fuss other than she wants to see me more. i got lucky!

My wife usually comes out with me and plays with her ZJ while I work on mine. She doesn't know a lot mechanically, but if nothing else she'll wash hers while I'm doing nuts and bolts stuff. She did redo her hedliner (princess pink) all by herself.

Mine gets mad when it isn't ready so I rarely get told not to work on it. She likes 4wheeling just as much as me.

My WJ is the replacement for my XJ which was totaled when it got stolen, still sitting in the driveway waiting for the temps to go up some so I can start parting it out. Anywho, my wifey doesn't mind. When I wash mine, I was her DD. Now that we have our first baby on the way she is encouraging me to start selling parts from my XJ so I can lift my WJ. She is very supportive actually. She's got me a good amount of stuff for my XJ and will probably chip in for my WJ
