Good Morning... I seen those... looks like you are making some good head way? Looks like you might be about 1/2 threw welding in tubing. And getting ready to start fitting and welding body tubes and fastners?

I’ve been doing more refrigeration work now that the other fridge mech retired. Worked on lower coil over mounts last night. Shawn and his buddy are doing a reno on one of our bathrooms I’ll just have to do plumbing hook ups. Dogs are tired not getting all their sleep time with all the activity. Mommy is happy picking out new bath fixtures and colours.

Shawn informed me that he will eventually get this car going 200 mph, damn kids!

As his Dad I don't like the idea, 800hp 150-160mph, I'm OK with that, 1600hp he's the guy who can do it, but 200mph scares me. This kid is intelligent, innovative and up on all the modern electronic tuning devices so making power no problem. His hard work and 12hr days might just pay for it.

Crazy kids these days.

I'm a lucky Dad, too many young people today are chasing the Dragon (heroin) a terrible epidemic.

His goal could be 5yrs off so we'll see.

Up early today, damn dogs, coffee in hand and later shopping for vanity and toilet. Shawn back out to Mom’s to pick up and speed more gravel. Guess I’ve got the lesser of two evils.

Freezing rain still coming down, everything is being cancelled even Church services today. Authorities are asking everyone to stay home and not drive. I'm sure it's going to be smash up derby like yesterday.

Shawn will be wrecked today, he had 6000lbs of gravel in Douglas and unloaded by hand by himself yesterday, he said it was 1 inch off the bump stops but the V10 pulled no problem. Love that truck!

Almost forgot, ITS BRISTOL BABY!

Woke up to snow on the ground again this morning. If all goes well the weather should move out and I can finish tidying up XJ and get it out this weekend. On the other end of my spectrum, Bandimere is starting up test and tune nights, hoping to get ZJ out for it's final voyage down the track this summer.

I was wondering why you had been a little slow on the updates on the project? Just too cold !!!!
"Final voyage down the track this summer" You not getting rid of the ZJ? Are you?
