Umm. Man. Ja

Besig om nuwe garage te bou dat ek weer kan verder bou. Huidige is net groot genoeg dat aeri pas sonder elevator/ rudder en kort daai om volgende stap te neem

Wel, dis my verskoning vir groter garage en ek bly by dit. :-)

As she was last.

Fully sandblasted, resprayed fully with undercoat, Top coat done halway as might need todo minor mods up front for new motor etc. Currently busy making new bushes for controls to make them slop free as possible.

1kr-fe motor in place (wired up and running) . Busy trying to find someone still willing to assist with making the reduction drive, all calcs and specs done, just need to get ball rolling.

Garage about 2 months away from done. (builders says 3 weeks ($$) ) .
