    Come on Reggie I gotta say mate I love watching your thread evolve because no ones done it before. I'm now thinking of a track car fully sttripped out just the same as yours. Common Reggie finish it so I can copy you.

    Mate I think you have a wicked car. Just need to finish it now. Tomorrows another day gets some rest and things will look brighter in the morning.
    Its a jam thing

    Stick in there, ride the waves. It will all turn out well in the end. The first time you go for a blast in it and it leaves a huge grin on your face

    things never go to plan let alone stay to a plan when modifying - stick with it and it just gets pushed back - no big problem really

    Just breakdowm that "one big problem" into all the little ones, and deal with them one at a time - it makes it dead simple to overcome just about anything. Make a list of all the jobs you still need to do and work through it methodically.

    And keep plugging away at it.

    You'll know it's all been worth it when you get out on the track for the 1st time

    You know its worth it reggie ..

    Just had a peek at your latest pics and its comming along nicely.. Looking at the wires you took out made me chuckle as I was tidying my computer desk yesterday and bitching about how many wires I had and not knowing were they went God knows what I would do with all the ones from a car...

    Keep in there and keep the pics comming...
