Mostly it's just trying to explain the new health insurance plans and health savings accounts, writing release forms, attending meetings, maintaining files, auditing I-9 forms, creating HIPAA compliance policies, auditing payroll and answering 401(k) questions.

It's funny - we operated for 59 years with a system of index cards and a recipe box.  Today, I've got enough files to organize a fairly substantial prison break from Stateville.


Uh-huh . . . . .

Yeah, the phrase that strikes terror into the "wallet" of every small businessman:

I'm from the "guvmint", and I'm here to help . . . . . .

Don't get me started . . . . . .

I will say this - with respect to employee retention and acquisition, our new insurance and 401(k) options make us a REALLY competitive employer.

As to payroll accounting, we've dismissed two people by FINALLY being able to put together a proper paper trail.  And while I miss her a great deal - we became good friends - one of the people skimming hours was our payroll person.

It was the toughest thing I've ever done in a work situation, and I wish her the best, but we really had no choice but to let her go.

Back to the Midget.

Finishing up the fuel tank today.  I've installed an aviation-style filler directly to the tank, and have an access door coming from Tanksinc.com.  I was always a bit nervous about running the fuel filler through the trunk, and this set-up keeps all fuel lines and the filler outside the body of the car, yet retains the stock tank.  When it's done, you'll flip open the access door, unscrew the filler, gas it up, have the boys at ERC seal it, lock town the access panel and go racing.

Much to do, but if I can find some time, I'll get some photos up.

I also picked up a tip from the HAMB boards on mocking up headers.  The suggestion was to use flexible conduit, put it all in place, fill it with "Great Stuff" insulation and coat it with fiberglass resin to hold the form.  It's worth a try - I picked up the BX style conduit today.  My concern is that the tightest you can go is about a 4 - 4 1/2" radius.

Chris,
There are several "metal doughnuts" available that can help with tight header radius requirements. Pegasus has some and also Pro Werks  http://www.pro-werks.com/partlist/979/.

You can also do a certain amount of "cheating" on a radius if it is not to much. The pic is a set of headers that I built for Steve Nelson's new 3 liter banger for his lakester. Several of the bend radii were reduced to make everything fit inside the car. Never tried the doughnuts though.

Not much matters and the rest doesn't matter at all.
