BTW you need to change your avatar to a cardboard BOX!

I can't talk really I use the RAIV car as a workbench myself, sad as that is...

Been acquiring parts though and it's going to at least become drivable again over the winter.

Thats cool;cant wait to see the IV car on the road.

Actually,with my toilet,we plan to get the new subframe installed,cage finished,and what ever loose ends done this winter.So there is light at the end of the tunnel.After that,I`m sure I`ll be outta cabbage.

The end has the only real frame of reference, that's the light house in the distance, my wife is holding the I phone videotaping with two hands to try and keep it steady. (She was bruised pretty bad by the end of the poker run) she's a trooper though.

Solid 3 to 4 footers that day. This is what I do when I'm not racing or working.
