It's just a mock up bullet for fabrication purposes. Once we get it back to shop we will put bullet, can, tranny, third member and wire it. But you get the general idea.

Breaking news, Green Stone Brewing will be collaberating with Dead Frog Brewery to develope a Pumpkin Ale for a Dead Frog Pumpkin Ale. We will be working with the Brewmaster from Dead Frog to brew a test batch on our system.The knowledge we will gain from that collaberation should bring our brewing skills to a new level.

THX Bud! Actually it just arrived at the shop Saturday from the airbrusher. Yet to see it. I'll check it out today after work. Green Stone Brewing was at it all weekend brewing up a few batchs of beer. Had to pass on the C5 meet and greet in Everette due to heavy rain. Pumpkin still in hibernation due to weather.

Finally the sun is out and the roads are dry and warm. Time to take Pumpkin for run up to Dutchman Customs to book some hoist time for the diff swap.

Been working like a rented mule lately getting www.rivercraftanchors.com off the ground for another season. Pumpkin is still on the back burner for the diff swap till the hoist clears. Soon very soon. The new ride is making progress for a May debut. A little engine porn never hurts.

We had the new car out this weekend sitting in the pits hoping for the track to come around so we could put a few hits on it. No such luck, just not a enough heat or stick in the track to make it worth trying.:( Hopefully in two weeks we will get a chance. Might even have the diff in Pumpkin for Friday Night Street Legals by that time. Just not enough hours in the day's right now.
