No grand news this week. It was either cool or rainy, so I didn't get much work done. But the weekend is supposed to be nice, so I will complete the cosmetic rust repairs.

Also, Ivan & I picked up some scrap metal (square tubing & angle iron) to build a towbar to drag the FS to Ottawa for next weekend's EV expo. That'll be the project for this coming week... then it'll be back to work on the functional type stuff: battery racks, cabling, etc.

Also also - out of the blue today I got an invitation to display the car at an alternative energy exhibition in Montreal in June. But it's a little far to go (not to mention it still won't be ready by then). They're cheekily billing it as the "anti" F1 event, since it's being held the same day as the F1 races at Montreal's le Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
