Was a little more then puss, there was talk about removing a section of my throat and the possibility of losing my vocal cords. No cancer but the infection was so bad that I had to be put on IV antibiotics for 2 months. And I've lost over 40 lbs from not being able to eat solid food. I'm dying for a dang hamburger like you wouldn't know.

Oh yes I would. .....I lost 40 lbs myself when I couldn't eat solid food. ....and I only weighed 180!..... I can still manage a hamburger. ...if I have 1/2 an hour to eat it. ....but I REALLY miss crispy tacos....nachos....and chips and salsa.....

OK folks, I continue building tomorrow after finishing my shop. Had to insulate and installed a pipe heater so I shouldn't freeze my butt off this winter. Gonna start doing the walking beam suspension only parts I still need is 2 more lengths of track and 12 boogies. I get those next month and should JUST have enough time to finish this build to the state that it is running and working. Paint will have to wait till after contest closes unless I manage to get some work done quick. Pictures to follow in the next couple days.

Got most of the suspension cut and drilled just need to weld it up then I'll post some pictures. Please don't ask for dimensions I couldn't tell you off hand its more a work of experimentation then any real science. This is my third attempt at this suspension but I think I have the bugs worked out this time.

Well I'm sorry to say it but due to health issues I am unable to complete this project by the end of Sept. So I ask mods to move this to whatever thread is appropriate. Next year I will enter again and continue on this project as my health permits. In no way am I gonna junk this project but it will be a few months till I am able to get it in any running condition.

One thing I found out when I basically lost a year of my life to Cancer.....was that all the little crap in life can wait.....but it probably wasn't the best thing for a procrastinator like me.....

Get well my friend....

When next year comes around I am sure we can fit you in. As long as it is not 50% done.

Hope you feel better soon
