I shall endeavor to make that happen for you.

it is getting very much closer.

last weekend my ratty old HHR insisted that I refurbish the rear brakes, but my son Cody was out, and so I gave him a sketch to work from and he made the mounts for the steering wheel from some 1.5 x .125 mild steel strap.

I broke out the etching tool so he could sign them...

it's almost there. maybe it'll get welded tonight. the possibility exists that the XKMM might be steerable by memorial day...

OMFG that'd be so much win!
