Really glad to hear that things are on the mend and the Midget will be on the salt. Give us a progress report on that when you have some..... 8-)  :cheers:

Well, there is much to do . . . . .

But, perhaps now, a corner has been turned, and the project is back on the "on ramp", headed for the great white dyno . . . . . . .

The first step is getting it sorted in the chassis . . . . .

Glad to hear that you are on the more gentle slope towards being healed up. Pleased to hear you have weathered the storm so well.

Best to you and yours.

Stay steady and don't forget to sniff the roses on your paths.

Greetings:   I am a new voice to this venue but I do have a connection to the Midget.  As it happens Chris Conrad is my son. 
As you all know Chris has been battling throat cancer for the last few months and is now on the road to recovery.  I want to thank all of you in the LSR world for your help, advice and encouragement.  In particular his family wants to thank the clever rascal from below the cheddar curtain.  We speak of course of 'Ford Boy' whose technical, engineering and moral support has been vital to the success of the "Midget".  Last and most important we want to thank our wonderful daughter-in-law Kate. She has been there for Chris at every turn in the road and she is an inspiration to all of us.
   Now that Chris is on the mend it is time to open that garage door and get to work on that new motor!   Dad "the Hemilover"
