eBooger extravaganza today

Today I went over to Surrey to meet James (mechman600), builder of the eBooger!

(Note the carbon fibre hood upgrade.)

It was great to get a full tour of the car after watching it come together in his build thread. Got a ride too and some good conversation. Beats the snot out of the ForkenSwift!

In my travels today I even braved crossing the new Killer Bridge! (Port Mann):

Fortunately, no "ice bombs" smashed my car!
