Good Stuff

I just wanted to say that not only is the documentation of this project very well done, but to have the project come together close to the anticipated budget is awesome.

Keep us posted...I know I'm excited to see new results as they're posted

Did anyone see the epic PBS documentary about the salvage/restoration of the B-29 bomber "Keebird" in Greenland? And what happened on the (post resto) maiden flight?

Yeah... What are you saying? One of your mechanics worked so hard he died, and then your car burned to the ground when you powered everything up? That was pretty depressing.

I was floored by the program. Very interesting and pretty intense too.

Nope, nobody has died yet on Project ForkenSwift. I will be keeping a fire extinguisher handy though!

Brock, you reading this thread? You use 6v floodies in your solar system, don't you?

DEFINITELY want to keep a fire extinguisher around. Good thinking.

Yesterday I went all the way back and read this thread from the start. Your story of welding on the inside and then leaning out to blow out the fire on the outside made me cringe!
