EARLY WARNING.

Go get another cold one fellows. No Friday post.

This next post will be so large that I can't complete it today.

The mid week post slowed me down some and there is so much happening that I will

just keep plugging until I am almost caught up.

We will have a post Saturday.

Keep your eyes open for a post from the Granite Falls teams at Houston.

They just made it on NPS and the audio will be available tonight around 7:00PM EDT: another half hour.

In this build diary they are T-2011-what's behind the number?

Great detective work, Midget.

No Friday post?! I need my fix!

Here's wishing the Shop Girls luck! :cheers:
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

Ray will be posting Saturday morning.

It's the largest post so far.

Enjoy it and let us know.

By changing the clearance between the rear wheel fairings and the ground a major rebuild is required.

Compare the original ones to the altered pieces. Jason has enclosed the roll bar area with a skin that

is removable when it was never planned to be that way. Dave is mounting the clutch save cylinders

and the Genies have been located.

Sorry to hear about a major rebuild. I love the fact that nothing is over looked in this build. JMO this car will end up in the Smithsonian. Thanks again to Freud and Ray for keeping us up to date on the build. Thanks also to Marlo who had the foresight for such a project, to Hume and crew for getting it done, and to Les Davenport who is a wizard in his own right and CNC guru.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Yup.  I'll be sending you some green Jello fro Utah, Tom.  (For those who don't know, that's a Utah delicacy.) 

Thanks for the kind words.

Having grown up in a machine shop I am always impressed with what I see.

One thing is craftsmanship, but innovation makes craftsmanship possible.

It's all under that roof.

When this is complete I hope they make real diamonds or modernize women.

What's a "modern" woman, Freud?

"I've finally met the perfect girl,
I couldn't ask for more.
She's deaf and dumb and oversexed
And owns a liquor store."

Issat what you've got in mind?

Another few days before a post.

I'm slow and Therat is getting cleansed in Las Vegas.

There will be a new build diary posted Sunday AM.

I hope no one stayed up all night just to be the first to access it.

Hey Dad, Jason is smiling.

Hello Australia.

I lied. Ray Therat came home early and did the post.
