Just got an update on shipping. It left Wisconsin on 2/7, ended up in Charlotte, NC on 2/12. A little partying down there, and should be here on Feb 20th.
You'll be missing fixture pieces, AJ said Drew left them out of every kit. Guy up in Canada didn't get same ones we were missing.

I may finally see it today or tomorrow. I'd like to strangle the shipping company. Hopefully they didn't trash it all.

Kit 3 is missing.

Progress pic - frame table needs clearing. I might need a snack before I go on.

Buckle in, it'll take a while I'm guessing.

I'm guessing. It seems like there's at least a dozen or so getting built up. I'm sure with my collection of parts, mine won't be the blingest.

Started welding AJ's up lastnight. Glad we wiped every tube down before assembling, there is still alot of oil inside some of them.

Drew got us the missing parts in one day, I'm sure he'll do the same for you and everyone else. ;)

I've got things to do with the kids for the next few nights, but I'm hoping to have most of the weekend to work on it. So hopefully it's here. I should go ask for a tracking number.

Thanks for the heads up on wiping down. I was thinking I need to grab a case of brake clean from the store, sounds like I definitely need to.

Yep, I only buy the stuff that will give you cancer with continued exposure, not the stuff that makes mustard gas or whatever the bad combo is.
