thats weak no MCR, but understandable... good luck finishing the house.

especially since we didn't actually make it for the event last year, we finally got to the springs when everyone was getting ready to crash. But even if it weren't for the house project with diesel prices as they are there is no way we could make that long a trip this year.

Actually this will be on the front burner in the coming weeks. Mark needs to fab up another exocage for our Tellico trip.

:yupyup: I am sure he's probably regretting that now. It would have been easier just to modify it for the new front end.

The exo was pretty banged up, but yea, it would have been easier to repair it than have to make a new one. Also the tubing was flattened out because it was pipe and done on a HF bender.

If i'd stop raining here I could cleare out the garage of all the projects and get started, but it looks like it is going to rain all weekend.

And yes I bought new dies for the Pro tools bender and some 1 1/4  1 3/4" hrew tubing.

But now the Tellico trip is off, at least we're not going, so there is plenty of time for Mark to do it the way he planned and not to have to worry about rushing this.
