7 Months seems like forever, so here is a teaser shot for you guys. I picked up the sides and top today. grin This is all in mock up, nothing is bolted down. And what looks like stuff on the sides is actually the reflections of the stuff on the floor lol.







After Ted and I fooled with the VR we decided it's just best to send it out. I have been waiting for what seems like forever to get to this point, but it is so worth it to me. I still need to finish the base, as of right now I am working on the light manifold.
What do you guys think?

LOL, thanks Dick, the shop is actually clean, I was just to lazy and excited to move the pump into the center to put the skins on. I had to at least take a stab at the VR (and it stabbed me right back LOL)

Dick I've been there. If he kept my shop at the college this dirty I'd fire him. Too busy with school and pump building to clean it up I guess. LOL Ted

Ed, the way I figure it the more projects I have going on the less time I spend in the bars, which in turns means I have more money for my projects and hobbies. I'll be watching the mail box, thanks again.

That's right less drinking is good. Save it for the weekends and gas bashes. NO DRINKING on school nights. Ted
