No pictures today, the motors should be going in on Monday and the painting process should begin on Tuesday evening. I will stop by after work tomorrow to get some more photos of the progress.

Wow, hats off to Kent, Dusty for the build and you for posting these pictures.  Hard for me to believe that the liner holds the rider and 2 blown motors.  What a neat packaging job.

Tell Kent and Dusty if they would come to my place and help me finish my lakester in 10 days I'll feed them all the lobster they can eat.

c ya,

Kent, Sum's home is in Blanding, Utah -- a dot on the map that would take some awfully strong imagining to call a "city".  The nearest real city is...umn,. unh, ahhh, there's no city nearby.  That's how far out he is.

Getting you here and eating lobster (lake Powell lobster, of course) has two benifits to me.  One I'll get my lakester done and two maybe you won't fit in your streamliner anymore and will be looking for a new driver!!! 

..........and here I thought you were telling me that you were going to take weight out of the car.........,

Big mistake on your part! Dusty, the skinny little bastard, can eat more than he is worth. I do not know where he puts it all............

Finger food ?
You mean Col. Sanders ?
He died you know. I think it was clogged arteries.
I'll be there , just to see Kent eat with his pinky finger in the air.
