The Long Winter is Over!

The Long Winter is Over!

Whew! It’s been a long time since our last post – almost 6 months! We’ve been plenty busy. We completed much of the little odds and ends, which seem endless: roll cage gussets, seat hardware, safety wire, painting, brake adjustments, sealing oil lines, electrical goodies, shifter, body modifications, mirrors, dash – a little bit of […]

Project Baja Build updates

Project Baja Build updates

When groups of people embark on big projects like this there are inevitably times when life gets in the way. We have run across that recently. With the car SO close to being ready to drive it is so difficult to not be able to make the final steps to finish it up right away. […]

Build Update: Learning experience

With the build progress getting close we have been waiting for a lot of parts. One of the main things is a fuel cell. Man, we made a bit of a mistake with that from the get go. Thinking we had it all under control we ordered a fuel cell. After fabricating the mount, cutting […]

Pushing on, With an Engine!

Our build has been a bit tough to define recently. One of the things we learned is that we should have really started ordering parts earlier. We assumed that we would be able to just buy those parts as we needed them and unfortunately it has been a bit more challenging than that! So what […]

The final push… why is it so hard!

The final push… why is it so hard!

It only took two cyclists to create modern aviation, you’d think that 4 of us would be able to build a car a bit quicker right? We have a ton to do, but of course, in the laws of nature and the ways of the world everything else seems to be happening at the same […]

When summer rolls around we are all busy. Add on all the other things that ramp up to our build and we are a bunch of bleary eyed guys running around trying to fix everything. However with that being said, we are making progress, and lots of it! With the main portion of our cage […]

Cage Build Take Two

Cage Build Take Two

There are few things more disappointing than having to redo something that you thought you had already finished. We are fairly used to it on smaller scale items however. When we do something we often will go through several ideas before we discover the best idea to make the best solution to whatever problem we […]
