Dan wasn't working on it. It was being built in North Carolina.

Kevin Wesley, the owner, I think has been racing Vipers in some pro class.

Did they ever show how the windshield would be installed in the car? The way they welded the cage to the pillars would not allow the factory rubber seal to fit from what I can see.

I just did a windshield in my car and I don't see how you could use the factory gasket the way they welded those cage braces , of course you could just use urethane and stick the glass in like a new car.

I told them when it was being built that if it got out of hand and wasn't finished when I got it back it would just sit. It got out of hand, clutch was installed wrong and now it just sits.

I've been spending my spare time with other programs now, so I have no idea when I'll get to this again. I really should just drop it off somewhere and have it finished... again.

Thanks for the update, I was hoping you would make it to Targa Newfoundland with it ...that car would be perfect for that event.

Why don't you just fly in for a few days and knock it out here? That's a lot cheaper than me shipping it across the country.

Plus, if I have to actually package it all up to ship it, I'm sure it will just continue to sit. Zero time, crazier stuff to work on at the moment.

Life has had some interesting turns with amazing opportunities for me the last couple years.

I built the Dart to run all the events, that I've currently been running... with other peoples cars. Weird how it has worked out. One of the reasons it's still sitting is because I've not needed it to run events. I've had other stuff available. Good for me, bad for the Dart, unfortunately.

If your luck is anything like mine, when you need the Dart it won't be ready because you didn't have time to take advantage of it's down time to get it ready because you were busy do what you do.

It's a catch 22

Sometimes you end up doing things you never expect... I'm loading up one of my cars and leaving to Drag Week today... and I'm not even really interested in drag racing that much.

Want me to fly into town and finish that Dart for you? I'll bring my plasma cutter, bailing wire and bubble gum. Should have it up and running in no time!
