Well this is where I am at this point.

I started on some graphics today and hope to have them finished by tomorrow evening. My plan is to have the whole thing back in one piece by the end of the weekend. We will see what happens. I need to get a set of gauges for it, anyone have a guess as to where the best place to buy them are?

I had a pretty good setback today. When I went to change the fluid in the transaxle I found a few pieces floating around. (I know I should have changed the fluid long ago and I wouldnt of had this problem.) So I had to remove take a few steps back.

Here is where it sits now. To be honest I am glad I found it now rather then out on the road somewhere. Ohh well pushing forward!

I still think that I will be at the Buggy Round Up (Labor Day weekend, Boerne TX), in fact I have already blocked out that time on my calender. However I would really like to finish it sooner so that I can take my youngest daughter to school in it for her first day of 8th grade. Time will tell...
When I posted that I was looking for help, Bruce sent me a message saying that he is willing. He and I have laughed and worked on my Buggy a couple of days now, and I am thankful for the help. Thanks for the help Bruce!

I should be thanking you for letting me help. This buggy is going to be nice. We're having fun.

Here is a picture of the bracket we came up with for the brake fluid reservior to mount on. You'll never see it from outside the car but it looks good anyway.
