  1. Thank you Jeff. Probably more like fall or even as late as winter... as slow as I move. I'm running into difficulty finding an appropriate instructor. The LSA flight instructors around here are all nose wheeled planes. I need a tailwheel trainer and I may have to drive to another state to find one.
  2. I believe it. My Dad is only a year older than you.
  3. Thanks Grubby. You got me beat...I'm only 48 now.
  4. It's a heater. Works great too. A lot better than standard 48 yo Beetle heat.
  5. Figured I should update this thread and not leave it hanging. The car is up and running! I have some nickle and dime crap left to do, but it has carried me to work for the last two weekends. Aside from a few mechanical things, I still have to build the roof rack and spare tire carrier...and maybe some nerf bars too. It will be back to the airplane project now that this winding down.
  6. You never know when that might come in handy! Or it may sit on a shelf taking up space for years. Still, considering the price...I would probably have bought some too.
  7. Thank you both! I went to work like usual last night, but am here to tell about it this morning...so it's all good @Old Tom I too look forward to the days when we can get out again my friend!
  8. Those are gorgeous Tom!!!!! 1949 looks like a Bat Woman
  9. 88 lbs is a healthy sized pumpkin! Bigger than anything I've ever grown It's a shame they aren't fit to eat when they get that big.
  10. Not really. The arms cycle through the same geometry as stock. I just "pre adjusted" the adjusters a little much when welding them in. I want it to ride nice...not like a truck. The adjusters control the spring preload is all.
  11. Since you have a saws handy...you should carve a big ol Jack o' lantern for Halloween. It would be a shame to waste it!
  12. Did all my modifications to my front beam and got it installed. Sits a bit higher than expected. I may have miscalculated the orientation of the adjusters I welded in. I may have to take the beam back off and cut those adjusters free and weld them back in at slightly less angle. I did some beefing up of the beam while I had it out of the car. I also drove sections of the old sway bar into the each tie rod to strengthen them. It is starting to look good though.
