Got everything to clear this morning with the wheel spacers on. After work I'm hoping to get the notches in the frame the rest of the way plated in, and then all that's left is finish welding and final assembly.

I know how you feel. I spent many nights working in the dark trying to get stuff done so the next thing could be done the next day makes for a long day at work you'll get there though. Just try to keep your wife happy during all of it... take time for you two, or three now and still do stuff together, or you could find yourself lost

All welded and put back together, I even got the wood stove going so I could throw some paint on it. I was quite surprised to see that with basically no pre load on the springs (100/125) I had almost 7" of shock shaft showing with 200 psi of nitrogen.

Gotta machine some clamp blocks for the reservoirs at work tomorrow and it will be ready for a test drive.

Got the reservoirs mounted, the wheels back on, and I drove it out of the barn for the first time in like 4 weeks!
