Just wanted to announce

Like an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in chinchilla, LBM will bring you in and out of consciousness with alternating waves of outer space-like freshness and pharaonic opulence. You can think of the Paris based design firm like a renaissance man from the future, whose inspirations age timeless, yet capture and astound those in the present.

Just wanted to announce

Postby Maraschino Larry » Mon Oct 20, 2008 12:14 pm

that I am done fucking around distracting myself from the coupe. No mkI sciroccos, no wheels for mkIVs, I'm ready to get stuck in again. During a short bout of insomnia I had the opportunity to straighten up the mess of files and random ideas in my head.

I'm working towards a final goal and it'll work fine in stages... might not be totally cohesive along the way but my favourite part about the car has been working on it in bits and pieces as I drive it, and because I don't have a build thread on the vortex I don't need to worry about what anybody else has to say as I progress.

First order of business is to get the front suspension sorted once and for all... v3.0 is going to happen over the winter. Wheels and tires will come for spring. Depending on finances/time I may squeeze in stage 1 (or .5) of body work in there. I kinda want to pick up (or borrow) a welder and try my hand at that as there will be a crap load of metal work. This depends very much on the spare time factor.

I'll have to fire up the old PSP7 and see if my head is spitting out good plans or not... but I am pretty stoked. I'll update y'all as I firm up these plans.

I thought you were going to say you were having a baby.

This is still pretty exciting though.

This is more exciting than a baby.

Get a move on, son.

Dear Rupert,
We are very happy to hear news of your recent re-direction regarding your coop. Down here at the internets, we've been wondering where you were headed. We eagerly look forward to your next update.

Sincerely,

And here I am thinking you were going to get married, and was wondering what Haley thought about that. :lol:

Glad to hear that your double garage isn't going to waste purely as storage space!

lol one wife is more than enough... and while I wouldn't leave a baby curbside, its arrival would probably not be announced at LBM! Like Randy said this is very exciting! :P

Oh and DW I know that's not true, solely because of the fact you do not post on the vortex.

Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...
