    Will try to brakes tomorrow.

    Today I had other limited success with the edge trim. Some corners were too sharp for material others were too close to the suspension without room.

    Still not sold on the look either but after much sweating and fidgeting it's done enough to test and see if it grows on me.

    You know what they say. A watched battery never charges.

    Took the Locost out for a spin with the wife today. It was great to get out of the house. She is really handling great and I can't wait to get her out on some REAL roads. Not Kansas roads. The Locost, not the wife. The end of this lock down IS coming. Russ

    Dropped off the new cage for powder coating today after it got scratched in transport.

    Also fixed the the brakes by bleeding the back brakes. Didn't need to come back for the front. Brakes as good as new. Work so well I actually had to question whether pedal goes far enough to activate the brake switch.

    Also met up with this guy after. What a machine.

    Washed it, attempted polishing the aluminum, drove it, then a couple pictures before it got dirty again.

    The parts arrived and after installation, I buttoned up the tail shaft housing. I won't go into fifth gear now! We took it back apart and something didn't feel right when rotating the input shaft. Upon further examination, I found an extra?? circlip aft of the second gear synchro cluster?? No idea where it came from or how long it had been there. Looks like I will be disassembling the entire gearbox this afternoon. Oh well, tomorrow was Groundhog day anyway.

    Put the new rollcage on and tried out the track/replacement wheels on.

    New wheels stuck out more which is surprising but it works

    Went out for a Sunday morning drive yesterday with friends. A gorgeous 130 mile springtime experience.
