The chassis, interior and floor panels, and all the suspension bits have been delivered to the powder-coater. Like raising a kid for years and watching him walk into school for the first time, it was an odd feeling leaving it there and asked them to take good care of it. Logically I know it’s not going anywhere – what would someone do with it – but there’s still an odd emotional attachment to that silly lump of metal that I’ve spent three and a half years creating. Assuming it’s not done by Friday, this weekend will be spent cleaning up the garage in preparation for the fun and relaxing part of the project, The Final Build.
