Well my big plans for this Memorial Weekend were only slightly dashed.
I have had one of the worst sinus infections in years the last couple of days.

My wife thinks it's all the crap in the garage...dust, paint, fiberglass, welding smoke, more paint, grinding metal, more paint....you get the pciture.

I did manage to knock a few major challenges.
Got the front axle beam finished.
Got the fiberglass floor cut and nearly all drilled except the body mount bolts.
Got the steering box rebuilt.
Started loading the trailer.
Started fill parts totes with items that will be needed.

I decided to bring the welder instead of the air compressor.
I don't think the compressor will be needed. Air tools would be okay but it would be running all the time.
We will go with hand tools.

Still no sign of the Transaxle. I hate to bug them, but if it is going to be shipped later than Tues. I need it to go directly to Eric at MAM. If you read this an know any info from Enrico or Sam, please email me or post it Eric. Thanks John
