Make yer own! The material wouldn't have cost much - $60-70 CDN pesos, had we had to cough up the cash. Aluminum (the stuff we got, anyway) is very easy to work (soft).

We could have bought one from an EV supplier for roughly $150 US.

Well, Sketchup is neat, but it's not really appropriate for this task.

Did I say DONE by Sept?

How 'bout September-ish for the first electric test drive.

If it were up to me alone, Sept. would be no problem. Unfortunately it's a two-person project and Ivan has a full-time+ job (and clearly, I don't!).

Don't blame everything on poor Ivan! Don't worry, you're doing just fine.

No, not blaming. It's actually good that he can't work on it all the time, or I'd likely neglect my work (more than usual) and get the clients riled up. Keeps me in check ... unlike today, whiling away the afternoon writing GS messages. Enough! Back to work...

Happy Schoonering Darin. I will be doing a more mundane thing during the same time period. Yours sounds like more fun but at least I will see more cyotes, armadillos, skunks and turtles than you.
