WOW. Just sat and read this thread. (Well it took me a few weeks). You guys talk some crud but man I love what you’ve done. Your Tank is beautiful.
Very inspiring.
Like many I have dreams of building a car (lakester). i just hope I can do half the job you have managed when I do.
Worst part about being up to date is now I have to actually wait to see what comes next...
If a jobs worth doing. It’s worth doing twice.

That's his way of saying he feels that you are worthy of great amounts of respect, and that your manner of articulation of your wisdom is exemplary.

Just thought you'd like some help interpreting.  You're welcome.

Yes yes I'm here.

Progress here requires the aligning of ducks and the enherdment of cats but that I can assure you is happening.

I built the mezzanine, no, I'm not kidding. There is now somewhere to store the infrequently used but essential items (everything that goes to the salt but has no use during the year, race wheels, parachute, safety gear, body panels, tents, pit shade etc) so as to free up space around the car, so it can be worked on. The shed of course is like trying to dig a hole in wet sand, every time I turn around to empty a shovel it magically seems to fill up however I think this latest effort may have struck a critical blow.

Renovating a house these last few years has made keeping shop kind of tedious and Stainless will attest that the shed was nightmare material but I swear Bob, I'm getting there, clear bench space, a spot for (nearly) every tool, hell I even bought a new case for my big Bahco socket-set.

I'm two weeks into my new job, it's turning around.....

Well I'm cutting through it here
been doing some work on the Waza.
Made a different front axle and remade the rear hubs so they're ford pattern
Am about to start wiring up the Motec for the Spigot. am just waiting for the terminals to arrive
and still renovating.

Now  I remember seeing somewhere a heavy duty quick change for land speed. It was big and started with a 2:1 ring and pinion set
I thought it was posted on here, but I can't find it. Asking for a friend, really

I'm wondering how you're going to get that big pumpkin up the backside of that little car?
