Glad to see that you are still alive all that.  Good luck with the long car.  It should be interesting.

Thanks all. I don't get any inspiration locally, actually the opposite. I'm 100% genuine when I say that you guys are the only reason I'm still getting on with the project as far as motivation, help and backup are concerned. I'm busy getting the workshop sorted and took the time to actually measure the space I have to get the liner out once it's built. It will be tight turning the corner but I'm optimistic. I'll have pics of some of the parts being made during the week.

Mike, inspirartion comes from within. Little support locally here as well. Few understand the need for speed. Keep us informed and keep well.

Mike:

You are right. Most of us get little inspiration other than a burning desire to do something that only 1% of people ever do. Don't ever add up the hours or the money, just know the time on the salt is too short. It does not matter if the record you are after is 60 mph or 600 mph. Keep up the good work.

Guys, I advertised the project for sale and I'm getting a lot of interest.

It hurts to have to sell but I need the workshop space and there is no way
i'm parking it out in the yard to rust and deteriorate.

I hope it goes to the right home. cheers

Frank, There's a lot of stuff one wants to throw out but as soon as you do,
you might need it. I threw out a pile of wood and now I need some to back up a mold.

Maybe a small garage isn't so bad. At least it prevents you from getting into
projects that are way over your head. Look at ME!!!!!! grin grin grin grin

     Mike,
   I remember a story about a guy that saved string. He had two balls of string. One marked "String to save", and one marked "String too short to save". In a way, we are all sort of that way. Saving things with no use, until they have a use.
