How is this coming?

The project actually has not started as of yet. I have been keeping myself busy with all of the outside projects I can manage while I still have a chance before it gets too cold... the tentative date would be in time for x-mas :P
Its got style... its got class...

I have two (2) '82 Sx/4's and have been looking for a set of louvers (2 sides & rear) for a while now, so if you can build them "pro like" I'd defiantly be interested.  When do you think you can post some pic's of your prototype? It's getting close to Christmas!

You how it goes... procrastinate procrastinate... and I have sooooo many projects going along... my band is playing its first show this month so were really spending alot of time jamming as much as possible.

I probably won't start these until the first of the year. The good news is... once I get my prototype done... I have a really good friend that works at a sheet metal factory. He tells me that if I make the first set and do all the measurements... then he can program his machine to do all the laser cutting perfectly. I would only have to pay for materials too. So this project is seeming more and more realistic by the day.

I also have some measurements from another member with metal louvers and he sent me some great shots too... so it will run fairly smoothly once it gets started.
Its got style... its got class...

You how it goes... procrastinate procrastinate...


I saw a bumper sticker the other day I want. It said "PROCRASTINATE...NOW"
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contsesting the vote.

"Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

"When governments fear the people there is liberty. When the people fear the government there is tyranny."
                  Thomas Jefferson
"The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference-they deserve a place of honor with all that is good."
                   George Washington
"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
                   Abraham Lincoln
All generalizations are false, including this one.
There's room for all God's creatures, right next to the mashed potatoes.
Billions of electrons were disturbed to bring you these messages.

Tis warming up... and you know what that means... I've already cleaned out the workspace... and I've started working on the SX4 again.

This project should be taking flight very soon. I had some ideas on new materials too... and even came up with a rough draft design of my own.
