I haven't progressed on this project since the hurricane hit. I've been working 12 to 16 hours without a day off.

There are more important things than one's side projects. Occasionally.

That's me as well. Half of the technicians in my area are in Texas for disaster recovery, leaving me covering lots of other calls / shifts.

I will have my first day off in roughly 1 month this Saturday. I'm hoping to get at least a tailbox ready. I am in the process of a re-design and have discovered that for my chassis dimensions, steering requirements, seat and boom position, and other variables, I will not be able to make a perfect NACA0026 teardrop work from the top-down perspective, but the shape will be close.

I hope to have the next drawing ready to post this weekend.
