And the wife is on my rear!!!! My first one didn't perform well. Lol! I've got major doe sunk in this thing and it ain't even runnin yet, but a good friend of mine gave me the hull and usin my old miller welder I am determined to make this thing work. My first cheap engine just wouldn't cut it and I am totally having to rebuild almost everything. I am hoping this thing works.... but anyways heres to lonely successful projects in the garage right!?!?!? Lol!

It looks tall. Will it clear the rafters and make it out the garage door?
Are you going to test run it in the driveway so th whole neighborhood knows it works?
