Pete, we live a thousand miles apart, and have the same neighbors. Mine saw me working on my Sonerai frame and thought I was building a sand rail, or a mini dragster. When one couldn't take it anymore he stopped by and asked. When I told him what it was and what it could do, I got . . . The Look. The upside is that my neighbors never bother the crazy guy.

I had two police visits when I had assembled one of my completed, painted Mongs in the backyard. Apparently someone driving by thought there was an 'airplane crash' within the city limits...We all had a good laugh. Looks Good, Pete......Ed
Finally got around to welding the rear strut attachment fitting. Still need to weld a finger patch. This is the first time ever welding except for practice. No machine shop tools were used in the making of these parts. (You can tell that for sure).
