    You are welcome! If you are interested in looking for work in the oil industry, next week is the Offshore Technology Conference here in Houston. I attended it right when I graduated from MUN out in Newfoundland with my Naval Architecture/Ocean Engineering degree and had two job offers within a few days and lots of interest from other companies. Unfortunately I don't think too many companies are hiring right now but there are an awful lot of companies in one place this coming Monday - Thursday. I think this weekend the newspaper has a special engineering job search section so I can pick that up and see is being advertised at the moment.

    Well, what more can I say, other than she's done! More or less...

    There is a fathers day show that I have been to with my step dad every year for the last 18 years or so, today we finally had a car to enter :) It was pouring rain but this is one of the wetter areas of Canada so no sweat off my back.

    The car is running well and commands a lot of respect. I cannot believe how many people come up to me and ask who painted it. The engine is extremely powerful and I am confident the car will dyno mid 400's at the tire. Thanks everyone for your support over the years, it feels great to be done. I still have plans for the car but for now, I'm driving it !

    Awesome build and thread! It is amazing how you completed this project in under 2 years from start to finish. That is no easy feat itself. Congrats and enjoy.

    BTW: Did you come in under the 15k budget?
