Got smaller and longer when you took it off the jig!

Around the point you're at we'd really hit the wall, one day in an effort to defibrillate our motivation I figured there was no big reason we couldn't cut her off the jig. As it was lowered to the floor I began laughing, more and more.The other two looked at me like I'd finally succumbed and gone mad.

The Colonel , "...what's up?"

"How f***** LOW is it?!!!!"...( yeah, it had wheels and tyres on it too).it looked like it was sunk half in the floor, and it seemed half the size now that most of it was at knee height.

It worked, all the idea dead ends we'd found ourselves in evaporated and the work rate picked up big time.It was a happy day...

Well I  rolled it around on the floor today, a little welding,  a little grinding, a little fabricating  --- I have finally started bracket racing----

 I decided to work in the fuel bay.  I drilled my first hole in the new bulkhead to be able to run the trans shifter cable and I mounted front plate on the lower middle tube to mount the radiator in a box,, on, and on little stuff. 

I will be ordering new throttle cable and parachute cables as well as some misc cable parts.
