thanks Jeff!!! that means alot coming from you! it seems like that was just yesterday i was gawking at your type IX and type II. i do have to admit, there is a ton of info out there on the forum here, you just have to dig it up and find it. right now im in my habitat, fiberglass. those years i fell off of the earth, i was a mechanic on a pro drag race team.
here is a picture of our race car-
me on my side, putting the pro jack under the car-
and here at lunchtime!
when the car body needed repair, i was one of the few they trusted to patch the carbon fiber. fiberglass doesnt seem like its too different (i was thinking of doing a carbon hull, but costs kept me from it). once i get to the internals, i will be lost.
we need to get together in the near future Jeff! id love to catch up, compare notes.
side note, im glad the race team dried up.... i was only home one week every 4 months or so. i have a new respect for our boys in uniform.
