    I would like to see the Lightweight go to a good home for the summer. Otherwise, it will just sit in my garage most of the time and go to an occasional car show.

    Asking price dropped to $29,900. All reasonable offers considered.

    The Lightweight has been sold.

    I hope I don't regret it too much.

    I'm too embarrased to tell.

    At $30k I was looking to break even. Luckily, I just went back through all my receipts from the build. Apparently, when I added everything up, I failed to realize that some of the invoices (some very substantial ones too) were credits. So, I had about $8k less into it than I originally thought. So, I ended up making $1k. That means I worked on it for $1/hr. Still way better than paying for professional therapy I guess!!

    you may not, but I will. Will you still be attending British by the Sea? If you don't mind me asking, where is it heading off to?

    Rob-
    It's headed off to Minnesota, so we won't get to see it around here.

    I may go to BBTS as a spectator (plus, my brother-in-law and nephew will probably go).

    Don't tell anyone, but I may end up getting a 2014 J**p Rubicon X 2-door to scratch my off-road itch. That way I can actually use it a little and not feel bad about ruining something that I spent a bunch of time on. Plus, I'm getting old and it's time for an automatic transmission, air conditioning, a decent heater, seating for 4, not to mention front & rear lockers, electronic sway bar disconnect, etc.

    For the time being, I'm through with the hard-core restoration stuff. If my son (or daughter) wants to tackle a car project when they're a little older, I'm up for helping out, but otherwise I really don't have any more desire to spend countless hours in the garage. Like I said, I guess I'm getting old. Hehehe.
