Yep, TOTALLY awesome. I feel compelled to say I wasn't fired or anything like that. The stars simply aligned and I happened to be in the right place at the right time. Certainly, I was smiled upon.

So if you need me, I'll be in the shop!

Very cool and I feel compelled to say I didn't think you were fired (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif) My sister-in-law did something similar last year. She went to work prepared to renew her contract as a school teacher. Changes in the retirement offerings made it tempting and on the same day they announced changes in work requirements for the coming year that made retirement a no brainer. After 30 years, she went to work one morning expecting to re-up, and came home a free woman. Word has it she has been spending a lot of time hanging out at her daughter's pool. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif) And now I'll be expecting to see you driving the rocket ship before Christmas. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)

Congrats! You deserve it.

I really like that last bracket you made, the removal of the material on the side that meets up once bent is great!

I can't believe I'm actually starting on connecting things vs. making them!

Here's a first-cut mock up to determine throttle cable bracket geometry.

That is great news, and well a bit sad. Great for you enjoy the retirement, enjoy doing the builds, and working on the stuff you want to work on. Spending the time with the people you want to spend it with. Now back to my reality I have 8 left before I can hit the eject button, unless plans change. And plans always change. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

And I agree you need a trailer, I am sure you can fab some ugly looking trailer to tow behind the masterpiece. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif)
