Thank you all. Been spending lotsa time on the phone organizing stuff and I'm getting better by the day.
Lost a bit of strength due to a broken finger and a bad fall on some slippery soap soaked tiles. The maid
doesn't work for us anymore. Five minutes after I warned her not clean a no go area where I keep the
Harley she just disobeyed me. I got up and was fine but two days later my shoulder, elbow and wrist were not great. Age is catching up with me. tongue
My composite supplier Gebi who is also a good friend retired and as a going away present he dropped off two rolls of Carbon fabric.
Needless to say he still owns the company and from here on in anything I need he gets for me at cost. He visits me once a week to check on me
and we shoot the breeze while drinking tea. He even brought his own Rooibos tea and honey. I prefer coffee but it plays havoc with my gut. rolleyes

Got 2 hours work left at the horse stable on the Barley fodder system and I can get back to work on the liner. Bodywork first and I'll start from the front
and work my way back. Still can't find F150 rear axles here. Hen's teeth I'm told but I'll keep looking. Building up a pile of cash to import a new throttle body
and tires. Wish me luckout exchange rate is at an all time low but in light of what's gone on here it's a minor issue.

9" axles that take the larger bearings. Tom Burkland suggested that current Mustang axle bearings and axles won't handle the speeds involved.

Sorry guys. I haven't been doing much on the liner.
Had health issues and a bunch of other problems.
I'm better now than I have been and I'm doing
a few small things but not enough to post pics.

I've been chasing down sponsorship due to my
bad timing. If you ever find a sponsor get a contract
and grab the product/material immediately. I figured
that the Lexan for the canopy would be one of the last
items to procure so I didn't collect the sheet. evil evil

I'm Jonesing to blow mold the canopy because i'm trying
to eliminate all the stressful stuff in my life and the canopy
has given me sleepless nights. This build is all sponsorship
based. I could never build this liner without the generous
input of my sponsors. Big bucks is an understatement but
you all know that already. sad

I live from day to day but I made a commitment to my
sponsors and I intend keeping my word.

I'll be posting pics of the tooling for the canopy soon.
Thanks for the interest. You guys all inspire and motivate
me. God Bless. cheers

I'm on a high today.
My best bud Doug Grieve broke a record and just backed it up.
Got email from him a half an hour before he ran. I just heard
the second part of the good news on live streaming.

The guy is at Speedweek and yet he has time to get in touch just before he runs. cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers

Special guy (Buickguy 3) and also a shout out to Frank Morris. God Bless you and the team Doug. You made my month.

Inspiration comes from all of you. Thanks Bo and Neill. cheers

   Thanks, Mike, we made it back to Montana with no broken parts. Now the prep begins for World Of Speed. I said last year when we couldn't keep the car on the ground with the rough track that it had a 215-220 in it and with this year's dead smooth track a 212 was pretty close. Now with a little tuning it should be doable. Glad to see that you can get back to some of the important work on the liner. Keep plugging away. You've got the attitude.
    Doug  cheers cheers cheers
