Man this winter has been unreal... Yesterday morning I blew snow for about an hour while I was letting the fire warm the garage... By yesterday afternoon we'd picked up another 10 inches and I had to go back over it again... We're at over 2 feet.So, I managed to finish up the base for the driver's seat, and get it primed and painted and ready to reinstal...

We're in the middle of sorting the final few issues with my project car... The goal is to get it to the track soonest (likely spring) so I can then think about sorting it.  Yup you read it here... The goal is to have the car "done" by the Watkins Glen event in 2011.  It'll be in attendance and will have a for sale sign on it.  It's time for me to move on...
