We will be staying in Wesley Chapel Saturday night. We have been in Bradenton since Wednesday. Rode out the storm at the hotel all day Thursday. Was going to Rare & Unique party tonight but got cancelled.
We are headed to the Bulli show Saturday morning then possibly Bugjam in the afternoon. For sure Bugjam on Sunday.

Thanks Pat! I built it back in 2014 for the 50th anniversary of the Meyers Manx. I did most of it myself, but had some great friends n family help me getter done! Paint was done by my buddy Jeff Peterson, a master of ‘glass n paint! House of Color Rootbeer candy metalflake, medium flakes – they are actually plastic now so makes them stay suspended in the clear better when shooting…
Had a blast today….great weather….and had my free beer!…Tomorrow looks a little rainy as a front comes through….tlambertParticipantNovember 12, 2022 at 8:40 pmPost count: 557

More sanding today… I got the hood and all the 1/4’s done yesterday… they blocked out perfect… and I am working the poly down flat!
2k coming up… Poly is a filler primer. The 2k is a surfacer primer👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Jumped in on this program today.
Dropped the shell down to a workable height to block out the roof.
Three of the four fenders blocked out. Working the last one now.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesModeratorNovember 21, 2022 at 5:30 amPost count: 10781

JJ is just about there on the body. I finished all the fenders on Friday.
One door down this morning. One to go. Deck lid and sunroof should go quick and it’s all ready for 2K.
We will build it if it comes.
