This is the best time of year to be fixing projects. While everybody is too busy being stupid about Christmas and sitting on their buts on leave, I work in peece getting the most amount of work done with no interruptions.

But, it has been quiet here lately. Think its time for a new project update..... I havnt updated one in a while.

the forum always goes quiet over the festive season.
I just got home and am already busy with a set of heads for another forum member, not much to report though

Think its time for the old hats to start doing/posting some "Projects" to keep the younger members interested in the forum.

In fact the project post get this forum humming...

The purest s have an outlet to comment and a opertunity to offer the "correct" way of doing things.

The Angle grinder artist see new and better ways of "saving" a Aircooled,

The Daily Driver guys get to ask questions and find spare parts.

The "Haves" got a opertunity to show off there new stash...

The "Have-nots" get to dream of what they want as a new project...

The "Couch sitters" get upset as they feel guilty for not going out to the workshop and completing that project.

The "Old Toppies" wander where the Young ones get the energy to Finnish a task between posts.

The "Young-Guys" try to find more info to turn that aircooled into a street shocker and piss off the whole bunch above....

And finally the wives get the "Old Ash@le" out the house and give her a chance to watch her soappie's and tear jerkers.......... :shock:

:wink:
