After reading most of the thread I finally noticed the dates. I was wondering why Tom and Tim weren't mentioning my name, as if people didn't know me here.

The barn doors, headlights, and motors/mechanisms are crazy heavy.

And opera uses I punch I believe to put those holes in everything. It produces a indented and beveled edge which adds stiffness. I think just using a hole saw in your frame wouldn't be a good thing.

good luck with that. i weighed myself yesterday and saw I finally broke the 200lb barrier. this is a new low--except that I've been lifting and taking protein so I guess it's not all that bad.

edit: low morale, high weight I meant.

This reminds me I need to weigh my car. I've done a few things, like swapping in 1.6 dash, removing all the extra engine brakets, every thing in the trunk, removed some of the unused wiring (god, that made me nervous), the cruise, and Ive got race seats I need to put in.. and I bearly crack 120 myself so no prob there.

I'm sure everyone has seen my 21 pound weight loss on my website. That was years ago and I gained it all back and then some since. Had a blood test the other day and it said my cholesterol was 237. Bought a bike today and the wife and I have started riding again for exercise.

You're not concerned about my health? <G>


BTW, replying twice in one day to a thread you want to die isn't a very good way to do it!

I weighed my car when I bought it, 2300lbs with a full tank.

Removed the softtop, AC, power steering, cruise control, everything in the trunk, and went to 13lb race buckets. Added the turbo and all its ****, SLIGHTLY heavier wheels and tires, the rollbar, and a hardtop.

Weighed it right after we finished the turbo build at... 2300lbs with a full tank of gas.

One day I might go in and gut the dash, but I want to keep the interior carpet.
