I have been here for sometime. Longer than I thought.
Have started many things and may have come up with away to finish them.

My plan is to build a building "just" for that. On the list is my American 7 ( needs to be pulled apart and painted), the Lotus 15 (it needs everything finished) a 1985 Jimmy with a SC 3800 swap (needs to be wired and put back together).

The other stuff,well if their is just time.

For now its just a pad with a footing for a 17 1/2' x 25'2" x 10' VersaTube building. I got sick for about 2 months and now I am better.COV 19 ??? But it sucks.

If any of you want to do something, JUST Do IT and do not look back.

Oh, man, and you have a tractor too? Now I'm jealous.

I'm glad you're feeling better.

Cheers,

The time wasn't wasted. The flagstones look great as does the rest of the landscaping.

Cheers

Starting to put the body mold into plan.
Going to have a frame CNC'd that I will fill with foam and then sand down to shape.
Need to get the building up first but have been playing with a model.
I 3D printed the model.
