    Sure will! Progress will be slow, as my personal time and budget allow, but I expect to get finished within a six month time frame or so. Winter will make it far too cold to work in my garage

    Can't need new undies when you don't have any undies to begin with.

    My VIN:    Formerly 10372, currently 4728

    Awesome...drive that badass machine out this way in the Spring!
    VIN 4728 is on standby to have its new exhaust installed, and has lost priority to a kitchen/living room renovation & 60-80 hour work weeks.

    Hopefully I have it finished by late spring or early summer. What you see in the picture is just a test fit of the motor by itself.
