The front axle all finished and painted. Next is drive shafts, steering and brakes. Hope to have bumpers going before the first run, but time is getting tight and I'm losing drive. We'll see

Drummond, June 13, but I would like to be driving it before then. I'm just finding myself to be lacking motivation and tired of spending money lol

After watching you kill yourself, I don't wanna do the same. Not that my build is even comparable, but stress is stress and time is becoming an issue.

Thanks for the offer but no, I don't think I need it, really I'm not far away. Just getting worked up about it is all.

Just try and tackle one thing big or small everyday. I edited and jumped around on parts of it without finishing things.

Good advice.

What should I do next, brakes or exhaust? I don't need to buy anything to do either.

No get the brakes done. Don't put off the essentails. Exhaust can be cobbled if last minute. But don't put off brakes till last minute like I did.
