    Decided I had a wild hair up my ass and decided to immediately start hacking away the tube chassis work in the front to start measuring and trimming for the new frame head and firewall.
    Not really thrilled that the front end moved a quarter of an inch when i cut the front lower supports out.

    No biggie. When I Z'ed the frame on my hot rod things moved around almost an inch. I just said FU, welded on something I could use for leverage, and clamped it back together.

    I switched gears last night and started working on the Rabbit some more as well as started looking for what will eventually take the Rabbit's place by the end of next year. Engine, transmission and ecu are likely spoke for already with a few odds and ends going to be for sales after that. Fastback is coming together nicely with most of the front tube chassis work having been removed at this point. I will be trimming and tack welding in the body side of the tunnel first and then removing the lower chassis part and welding that part in.

    Tougebunny is fully dismantled at this point and I've come up with a new idea for the remaining shell firewall back that will slowly take place as i have time. Fastback is currently buried behind a wall of rabbit parts and home construction debris so work will probably be delayed for awhile until i can get most of the rabbit parts sold. Otherwise, I just started a new consulting job that will be keeping me busy for awhile so we'll see if I have time to locate, buy and repair an ice racer before January at this point.
