Congrats Jerel. On the topic of backup lights, I was talking to a fella who does 3D printing over the weekend. I might follow up and see what the odds are of him doing Beaumont backup lights. (And then investigate the cost of plastic chrome plating.)

 Boy, you would be popular if you could come up with a solution for them.  I know Kelly gave it a pretty good run a couple of years ago but they sure don't have a very good percentage for surviving.  I've heard a couple of these 3D stories and they were impressive.

Skipped Bothwell, even though I had been waiting a year to go.

(Please post pics soon. Must have been awesome)

My older brother needed a garage for his electric scooter. 

His body just doesn't work the same after being hit by a truck in 2013

The one he picked out came in a box with 45 pieces, 125 screws.

Floor kit was a joke. Built a pressure treated deck with used plywood for reinforcement (Muttwood at his best)

Delivery was fun today with lots of rubber neckers all through London,ON

Glad I could see you two guys laugh instead of constantly bickering with each other. I hate that when two site members are constantly annoying one another.......

Bonneville: Boys are on their way home. No record this year but a great learning experience! Last I heard was 134 mph but the guys were having trans/shifting problems. Not too bad for a truck that had only been driven 50' and mostly built in a month and a half. We'll get her dialed in for next year! Pic of the crew..minus 1.

Thanks for the update, maybe drop a clutch and 5 speed in it? Eliminate all that slippage.......... Quite a project and I bet they had a wonderful time.
