Admit  it! The 55 gallon drum you bought of that stuff still had some in it!? We had an old friend, RIP that owned the local Speedshop, EVERYTHING he owned was a pale yellow. He got the same razzing about a 55 gallon drum of the stuff.  grin cheers

You must be doing something wrong -- I can still see the roadster.

How about now?   afro

Nice car, great job on getting it this far so quickly.

Brian, since I don't have a Facebook account I have to follow you here. Nice work. Sounds like you got the engine sorted and ready.

This morning we got a chance to weigh the roadster. Hit our goals pretty close. 4181# car, 4389# with me, 4411# suited up. Bias is 55% rear, 45# front.
Left to right is with in 16# being heavy on the left side and fuel cell less than half full on the right. CG is right at my butt.
