Oh, I'm going to take a break, the Flash will be out of the shop in the next week or so, I'm going to sweep up the mess and pull the Flyer in to do some TOP SECRET speed modifications before Arrowhead, then it's Rocket Time! :biggrin:[/quote]

Ray how about bringing a waver form I can sign to get a ride in the Flyer. :pray:

But watching you and Dan bring this boat back makes me want to step up to the plate and try my hand at a more in-depth restoration. I am glad I have had the chance to read up and watch You guys work.




Want to take on turning this back into a 1956 Golden Rocket?
