I just climbed in and closed the hatch for the first time. It's really nice in there.  8-) I can't wait to drive it. Wayno

Admit it, you were making vroom vroom noises!
Good grief. I make vroom vroom noises when I'm cooking breakfast.  :roll: Wayno

Yes it does Jon. And it is stout enough that it should not accidentally deploy.   :cheers: Wayno

Looks goos Wayno! :cheers:

I'd kind of like to go to Van Dyne Engineering in  Huntington Beach, Friday morning, to talk with him about a water pump, then head to the lake.

Will this work for you?
With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead. -- RFC 1925

You can't make a race horse out of a pig. But if you work hard enough at it you can make a mighty fast pig. - Bob Akin

Never making those noises is as inexcusable as not trying on a tea cosy.
