Re: Cracked polyester hull after a bad accident

This sort of repair is not at all impossible. I have repaired many a fiberglass car (mostly Lotuses) and I've fixed a LOT worse. Ideally, you could take a mold from another Mac and then fabricate a new part in that mold, feathering the edges... then, cut out the old part to the extents of the new pa...

That last one is an imposter
May be, but it’s built in GB and a h3ll of a lot of fun to drive!

Yeah, but like hitting your hand with a hammer, it feels good when you stop. :| If so, I’ve hit my hand...A LOT.... 47+ times over the years. The stable has been whittled down to only 5 at this point: And how is your hand feeling? Photo from 2 days ago... https://i.postimg.cc/XppfJhcb/86792-BBB-DA0...

Those are beautiful! I could learn to live with the hammer if those were the reward!
Thanks... but it took a LOT of hammer strikes to get them there!

Re: New lift for my 26x

Thanks Kevin. As soon as the border reopens, we plan on heading down to Lake Champlain, a 45 min.drive from here. I actually was looking at boat ramps with overnight parking and there appears to be a nice one in Rouses Point. We might however head on down to the a thousand islands region first for ...

Re: UGH! Frozen caliper pad on rotor: pass side

.....I got my first car with disc brakes, a Triumph 2000. Yikes - I had a TR2000 (MK I) as well - it was white, so I called it "The Nurse" because of how it looked. That car was wonderful - brutally durable, rode like a dream, had plenty of power and went through deep snow like it wasn't even there...

I just spit on them... if the spit boils instantly I know I’ve got a toasty rotor.
