I missed the fact that the tail in question had changed owners!


I think it's pretty great when intricate projects like that get a second life.

I agree, nice when a project gets a second lease on life.

This project and MetroMPG's Insight boattail will be my inspiration this summer. Fingers crossed on how many times I'll fail before I get a decent looking, working prototype.
