I can't find a one in the pre-enters.  That other smaller island has lots -- would that help?

So , I did some work on the tank on the weekend. Just working out where the new frame rails will go
Goggs has pictures.
In the middle of it I get a message about these http://www.landracing.com/forum/index.php/topic,16759.0/topicseen.html
Well, I'll take them, only problem is getting hold of the guy from this side of the world is proving difficult.
Can anyone help

He only went out to the shed because there was an IKEA clusterf*** happening inside.

Meanwhile at the Lancespeed Skunkworks I'm still halfway through the kitchen renovation....on Sunday while we had a neighbour helping us lift the 200lb casement window into place I managed to tip a stepladder over which I then fell on top of, I survived that relatively unscathed. It was as when I picked it up to reinstate it that it closed and pinched a piece of meat out of my middle finger tip that I was forced to make some incantations.

You don't need the tub to set those frame members as long as they are straight they'll fit within the skin.

G, I sent Mike a message, told him you wanted the tires and I would pick them at SpeedWeek if they were still available.  Anybody from the BIG island shipping a container back and forth this year?

Thanks Stainless
I think I need to buy them first and then work out the shipping second

I'd suggest a SAAB 900, but I think it's to small in diameter. 

Tilton makes 3 or 4 different 44mm units.  I have a stocking dealer up the street.  They're never cheap, but they're pretty failsafe.  I used their master cylinder on the clutch for the Frankensprite.

We had Don Jackson, Sandra and daughter Amelia stay with us over the weekend. We took them for a food and wine safari around the Macedon Ranges where we live, the day need with us following a kangaroo for a few hundred metres as it hopped along a road near our place. On Sunday Don and I snuck off visiting a few hot-rodder mates and finally arriving at the Colonel's to S3 the Spirit of Sunshine.
