Almost done with the adapter brackets. They turned out better than I thought I could make them.
I'll post pics when photobucket isn't down.

I didn't know he was planning on picking it up and/or dropping it on the motor mounts

And if he did they would probably rip out of the thin samurai frame no matter how thick they are

Get used to it. At a younger age, guys will gather together to hang out. 75% of the people hanging out are unproductive and just get in the way. After a while you figure out that if you want it done, you will need to do it yourself.

That's kinda been my mentality this winter on my winter project. I love having friends over and chatting it up, but in all honesty it usually doesn't progress much past that point.

Yeah, it sucks working alone but it's a lot easier to get work done when you have to get up and go get the beer yourself instead of having them thrown to you

Well said. As long as I can see myself being productive, I have no issues working alone
