Sandpiper? Isn't that some wussy little bird?

Seriously though, looks like you guys have made a bunch of progress. If you are going to be around this weekend I would like to stop by and see it.

Was on vacation last week....
Didn't get alot done-but-Joe and I found out it's a pain to modify a tilt steering column to fit a buggy....

[img]The Sandpiper 100_0026[/img]

Just how many does it take to make one....
TWO
One to tear apart to see how it's put together and one to actually modify.....
