Last night was a great sucess!! I want to make sure I pubilcally thank DJ, Nate, and Ryan for the help yesterday. I've never seen anyone cut with a cut off wheel with such passion for their work as DJ. Hell even geoboy would be proud. Ryan had to call robbie gordon the nascrap, desert racing guy, maybe you have heard of him? Anywho for advice about how much to set the caster angle. Front beam is weld to the lower supports and I have temp brace in for the upper, those will have to be made with the new bender.

DJ's cut. It was impressive. I knew this had to be a high strengh area so I called geoboy to come over and weld it for me. I'm gald I did because these turned out great!!

well some of the parts came in yesterday as in the disc brake kits...however when I opened the box...get ready for it....wait.....FOUR front rotors...AAAGGGgghhh!!!! I called the company and they said I have to wait until monday and talk to the shipping manager before they can correct thier problem...I will demand next day ait as I've been waiting ten days for these and i dont want to wait another ten becasue of their mistake....anywho I did install the fronts. I went with the cross drilled because they look COOL! I need to get these brakes on so I can have a rolling chassis. I want to test fit the body before I start bending tube and such and this is the only thing holding me back...I hate waiting on people especially when I have a fire under my ass to complete this thing

you have to love VW parts places...these assholes send me the wrong parts, try and tell me that I made a mistake, spend all day on the phone calling them over and over to speak to the shipping manager whom I'm convinced that he doesnt exist just so I can this corrected. On my last call to them, they say the customer service manager is handling it and hes in a meeting and will call me back tomorrow around noon. I tell them I've been calling them since 8am and I just want my rotors, they put me on hold again. Now Mike "the manager" answers says no problem I'll get these shipped out for you except they are on back order for 45days. I ask if he has solid rotors and I would take those as replacements if they credit my account the differance. He agrees, so lets hope these actually show up. I've never had more problems ordering parts and getting a problem corrected than dealing with these assholes. Unreal!! I needed a few more parts but looks like I'll go to Dons Sport Vehicals in Perry and pay twice as much...at least when Dons is fucking you they are doing it with a smile and make you think they care about you.

I hopefully have the brake issue sorted out and the vendor did say they were shipping me the correct parts now I have to wait for them to show up. I did manage to get the body cut for the front beam and set down on the frame. I forgot to take out the heat channels so the back is sitting about 3 inches too high from where is is going to sit, however it does give a good look at how its going to sit. I have to take a few measuments, make some cuts, take the body back off and then I start bending up the rest of the chassis and roll cage...so far I'm happy how everything is turning out.

You'll have to swing by my house if you want it. And better do it quick, because tomorrow we're going to put it in the fat pig.

No interweb updates. I have seen this thing with my bare eyes, it is a vision of glory!!

I think he is afraid to post here because of the impending banning!

By a couple he means 7 or 8 maybe 9. Apparently you dont know how Hancho time works. Its kinda like "hey wanna come over and help me build this widget? It will only take us 1/2 hour." 5 hours later, the widget is almost built. I just saw this thing again today with my bare eyes. The body is sitting on the frame, well until it gets moved off of it so Charles can get back to work on it. I think he still has to bend the cage and do some other stuff.
