Sorry guys, nothing much to report. We're trying to get the annual inspection finished, the gear swing, in particular. After that, the drops are coming off to be finished and painted....at some point. Wish I had more answers, but that's about it for now.

Cool, although I still can't figure out your paint scheme clue.

Glad to see there's still some interest in our little project! The work is still continuing, the Sabre is headed into paint this week. I'll post some pics some time this week. I think I'll let the paint scheme reveal itself as it develops. Trust me...it's killer (and I'm not just saying that because I picked it!).
