There is light at the end of the tunnel

my car is currently being wet sanded and will be painted within 2 weeks.

The 4 year project will actually come to an end spring 2004 when it will leave the garage under its own power.

I had to share my joy.

Thumbs up

Alex,

I take my steak meduim-rare Let me know when you need a hand. I have an electric impact wrench (250 ft-lbs of torque) you can use if you need it. Have a 1/2" torque wrench (- 80 ft-lbs) also.

Looks like you'll be doing ALOT of picture-taking for tech articles.

When are you selling ride tickets for your beast ? I'll be first in line !

Sandeep
