i can honestly believe that. you know what mine cost, and i have plenty of room and it was around a month of work.

but i bet when it was finished it was a work of art...

So in other news, I managed to track down the engine parts my old boss had "hidden".

So I have almost everything to get the engine built and in the car. What I don't have is stuff I can save for individually so the show should start rolling along again shortly.

First off is completing the gearbox conversion.

Then refurb the head.

Then seels and bottom end bearings and associated money wasting.

Yeah lol my bad.

Well its in the lap of the ato now. Complaint was lodged about super, and my tax return was filed using a stat Dec because he didn't supply a group cert.

But the tax office is notoriously slow.... So won't here much for a few months I guess....

so in other funtastic news, me and the beautiful better half have bought a new place closer to the big smoke, for various reasons.

the one upshot of leaving where we are currently, is the new place has a proper garage. Not huge, but still proper :D

so ill finally be able to do some playing, i hope... well at least once we are free of the second mortgage when this place sells... till then she is all 2 minute noodles and stuff :D

There's a big smoke in Tassie? Last time I heard there were only a couple of regional shanty towns...

Good stuff though mate.

yeah big smoke, in this case launceston, was tonque firmly in cheek description.

it wasnt something we wanted to do. but with my recent health problems, and the realisation how isolated we are if something happens to one of us.... it beacame the smart thing to do, at least for a few years
