I could drive former Le Mans winning Bugatti's and be less nervous.

Several folks have told me that it deserves to be trailered the first couple of times out. I've built the thing to be driven. Call it a sin, but anybody here who has had a nice 02 knows that at some point you want to do what everyone else does with theirs (well almost everyone else, no off-roading he he) so you have to give in.

I'm no more concerned about it than anyone would be with a new car. After that first rock ding, you get over it :)

I drove it 1000 miles very hard in a vintage rally. Yeah I've got some rock chips but I also have the satisfaction of knowing that the car looks good AND runs great.

Is there any way to calculate the time and money you spent on it by the time you're finished?

Yes.

I did convey a great deal of how that works to the group I was with in Arkansas a couple of weeks ago.

I plan to discuss all that at the end, and who knows it might even be in book form, if the story is worth telling ;)

The nyloc nuts you are using for the trailing arms need a little longer bolt, you need 1-1/2 treads min through the nut for it to lock properly, but no more than 8 theads showing. I'm not ranking on your project it's the best ever.....thanks.....Marty.....
