It's a hobby. Costs me more than it should and I learn, mostly from my mistakes. Lol
5 minutes or less is the greatest fear. Winning would be great, but I'm in it to put on a show. Without the prep it truly is a 5 minute or less show.

Guess I'm used to welding the doors and busting out the glass in the pit 20 mins before the derby!

I'd put a car in if it wasn't for my back. All it'd take is a hard hit to put me in a wheelchair.

It's too bad it's at the fair, it's so darn expensive. Was nice last year.

Been awhile. Been plinking a little, but really got a good bit done this past weekend.
Dash bar is in.
Seat bar is in.
All doors welded up.
Hood cut and on.
Switched to dual battery set up.
Hopefully fixed transmission leak (or slowed it anyway...lol)
Bumper ends cut.

Holding strong. That leak was so minor it plugged itself.
Thanks again!
