“I’ll get to it tomorrow....”
The started and never finished thread.
What’s some projects you’ve started but never finished or sold off halfway through?
I know we all have a ton...
Lack of time? Lack of funds? Bit off more than you could chew? Lost interest?
Sometimes tomorrow is more than just a day away.

I have a large pile of sheridan internals, bodies, brass tubes and wooden stocks I bought a couple of years back that still need to be mocked up and assembled.

I have 80% of a Z that I lost drive for after realizing that (A) I still need another $50 bucks in parts and (B) it's another liquid sipper, meaning that it will sit in the back of the closet unused like my 68 Special did until just recently

My Nasty Typhoon is an ongoing project. I'll get it working at the home but when I take it to the field there's always another problem. I've managed to play, I think, 2 games with it since I got it.
I've recently picked up a pump kit for it so I could use it in case have timing/cycling issues. Set it up, shot it in the back yard, took it to the field and blew the macroline when I gassed it up. It's back up on the wall now waiting on a piece of steel braided.
Can't wait to see the next reason it doesn't make the field. Any other gun I would have given up and sold it but.... It's a Nasty!
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat. - Theodore Roosevelt

My FBM razor still has a leaky 3 way. It's been a while since I touched my PGP.
I started to build a front lip/diffuser for my old car. It was going to be carbon fibre. I took the mold of the front bumper and got halfway through forming the styrofoam before it was time to move back to university and I lost any space to work on it.

I am horrible about not finishing things. Paintball-wise, I have several 3D models in various states of completion for parts that I wanted to print, and a slew of brass that is in my queue for rebuilds/repairs. It is a trend that extends beyond paintball, too. Despite doing it for ten hours a day, I also write software recreationally, with a specialty in abandonware/unfinishedware. There is my bonus room that is waiting to be cleaned out from boxes still packed from when we moved into this house (six years ago), a couple of MST3k robot kits sitting in boxes from a couple of years ago, and the list goes on and on...
For me, it isn't really losing interest, rather that I tend to get an incredibly narrow focus on a project and do not multitask well. Everything on my list will get done one day, it is just a matter of finding whatever is the trigger to shift my focus to come along.

I have a nixie clock, I have built the board, but have not got as far as any sort of enclosure, 2 years and counting.
And if its time, two cars and about 14 years so far, but at least for most of that I was in a different country, now its just a different city

I have enough parts for about 8 ions. I have some really nice bodies, like Lucky, Element and Sleeper. I've got aftermarket boards, almost every bolt that was ever produced and they're all sitting dissembled in a box for the last two years.
I also have a cheap Axe that I got for 100 that has a leak down the barrel or a blown solenoid. I shrugged and left it for another day.
