ha ha, no, not this one he didn't...

he has strict orders from the car owner... win from the front, win every stage, no holds barred, all guts and glory...

he won EVERY other event entered prior though... which is kinda ok ;)

and then what happened?

It won't be long now.........

I went to the paintshop today to see the 308 (that crashed out of Classic Adelaide) that'll be running and going for gold plate...

GULP.... it's still a bare frame....

me better roll sleeves up.

Why is it, that when you ask "Can you do it by "X" date?" and they say "yes, absolutely".... that they NEVER do?!

Actually, I don't...

If forced, I'll estimate a completion time... but I NEVER promise one.

I can't.

For example, I THOUGHT I'd have finished the Dino resto 9-10 months ago... but circumstances prevented it....

I operate a queueing system, not a booking system.

But with this 308... I asked the specific question "Can you do it in time or not... say NOW if you're not sure"

and I get back... "Yep, 100%"

and it's already 19 days late on a 15 day projection.

As you know, I don't care how I look.....

But I do want the client to get his Gold plate... which needs 8 years consecutive finishes... can't get that very easy...

I think you'll find its 5 consecutive finishes under the maximum time which is a piece of piss IF your car keeps going. :thumbsup:
