(Is it news to say "no news"?)

Nothing to report this week/end. Didn't get a welder. The weather has put a serious crimp in my desire to do a quickie road test. And I have a cold.

Spent a little time looking for angle iron for battery trays. A free bed frame would be nice (though I know some EVers say "proper", thicker angle iron is preferred). Had a couple of leads through the local freecycle group, but nothing just yet.
