WAITING!!!! What is wrong with you! I would have three pieces glued in wrong by now!!  Throw away the directions and get going.

Do you already have your toothbrush ready to go?  I know where you work and I don't want to hear any crap when I pull up.

Are you sure you don't want to retract that statement?  Like I said in the text, they sent a pack of crayons and I found some picture cards marked "If Jerry wants to build one"

Pete is like a BB in a boxcar.  He's all over the place.  Let's not distract him further.

One more month and there will be more pictures of someone passed out at 3:30 in the afternoon.

He's a predator and uses his aerodynamic head to sneak up on them.

Just FYI and I will post pics, the BB is B+ grade in my book and just fine for this type of project.  No real voids, some mineral spots, no footballs that I've seen.  Now it's not Corinthian leather like you might find in a Chrysler, but I can work with it.  I'm sure it's not the same quality that would be used in a BFM builds, but hey, I'm on a budget and this is a dated design, not to be confused with a state of the art true horn. .  LMFAO

It creeps me out a little knowing you know where I work.

Not quite as much as the time I was at work and they said: You have Carl "from the forum" on line one for you!!!!

Edit, I thought you were talking about the 684.  It's going now too.

Astute observation.

It's easier to afford the higher grade plywood when you can get the plans for free by simply asking around.

Just got back from KY and had a minute to post a couple other boring pics that I took Thursday when I was unloading.

Slight progress, probably not up to certain peoples expectations, but it will probably be the weekend before I get back in the shop.  

Driver arrived and I had to unpack it and compare it to a Crites cast frame 15" I had on the shelf.
