You nailed it. The truth is, I only succeed at these crazy ideas because I have a knack for getting very good people involved and together, good things happen!

David is busy right now at his shop so he has been sneaking in time all day today and yesterday working on the race car. He just called me a few minutes ago, and the tank is in and he is finally calling it a night. I will be heading up tomorrow to help button the rest of the car up while he is busy rebuilding a real customer's motor.

Today, David had some fun with me and texted me saying he hoped the tank would not explode...and included a staged dramatic photo. First, he was going to weld the hole (don't worry, he's done this before and stayed in a Holiday Inn Express just to be safe):




Done:





He got a new fuel pump too...just cuz we were already in there. New and old:




Tank repaired, prepped and ready to go back in:




He says I'll be driving the car home tomorrow.......I'll keep you posted
