    Did you ever have one of those days? Well today was one for me. I was on the way to having everything done on the 818E by Tuesday afternoon. I was modifying the trunk and installing the 2 rear covers when some buddies came by. One was looking the car over and said how did you crack the windshield? I said what!!! Sure enough the drivers side cracked down low. The glass shop warned me that the frame was way out of wack when they installed the glass. They were afraid the fiberglass surround was going to crack to try to get it all together. Though with clamps they were able to install the window OK. I guess it had too much stress on it. Nothing has touched it since last Thursday. It took a week to crack. As per Mauldin's Auto-glass I am ordering a new frame and windshield from FFR. Courtney at FFR helped me out and it will all be waiting for me when I get my GTM kit on Feb. 6th. Thanks Courtnie. Here is some pics of the back and finished trunk.

    I have finished up 95% of the car. It will have to wait to be done in late Feb. or early March. Here is some photos and a short video. That is about 1/2 throttle. If I floor it the tires light up, Woo Hoo!

    Took the 818E out to Huegenics to get it weighed down the street for title work. weighed 2360 lbs. Car went an easy 100MPH in 3rd gear! Wow! the guys at Huegenics were super impressed. Here is a photo next to the MK4 I just finished. Windshield frame and windshield came Fed EX today and was all intact, whew! I am going to pull the old frame out tomorrow. New frame and side mirrors are being painted by Huegenics today should be able to pick up Thursday. Hope to have it all back together by late next week.

    Yesterday I got car back from Mauldin's Auto Glass and the installed the new windshield in the new frame. They did it No charge! Wow! I did not expect that, Thanks Jerry! Today I installed all the front end, soft top, zip in side windows and side mirrors. Car looks really nice. I really like how you can unzip the rear window out of this soft top. Nice for sunny day but still get the good breeze. All that is left is to get it titled and clean it all up so I can deliver it to Chip in Atlanta. Hopefully before the end of Feb.

    I have a set that I replaced with s2000 mirrors. They were used for 3000 miles and may have some minor scuffs. Free to you if you pay shipping.

    Got the 818E titled today. Florida as of 2017 now issues a new VIN# instead of using the frame # as they did in the past. I will engrave it to the brass plate. Deliver car to Chip in Atlanta on 2/25/17.

    Delivered 818E to Chip yesterday. He is one happy man! His daughter had to get in car right after him. Here is a pic of Chip and me. I hope he has many trouble free miles of smiles.

    Hi Everybody,

    I guess it goes without saying that Tom did a fabulous job on the build. His patience in waiting for parts to get delivered was amazing. It's been a joy to drive the first few days. I took it out on the freeway and all over town on Saturday. I've never ridden in a gas powered 818, so can't comment on how it compares, but it is crazy fast to accelerate and feels so smooth. I had no idea how many heads it would turn, people roll down windows to ask what it is. The electric part just makes it that much more of a question magnet! I'm still taking it easy and getting to know the car. I put the regen brake on a trigger switch near the shifter which adds a whole different dimension to driving. I'm mostly able to get around without using the brakes, just use the regen trigger to slow down. I also put in a little forward/reverse switch in the center console so I'm driving in 3rd gear almost all the time without using the clutch. When it's time to reverse just flip the switch and the motors run backwards instead of switching the transmission into reverse. Here are a few photos: https://goo.gl/photos/WuDJzoD1SbJCNfAd8

    Congrats Chip. I know it's been a long time coming, what with the motor delays.

    We should get together and go for a cruise soon. You should also consider bringing it to Caffeine and Octane; people there would get a huge kick out of it. Next one is March 5th, I believe.

    Once you get accustomed to the car, let us know the range you can expect using different driving styles. I.e. Economy vs lead foot.

    I'm going out of town this weekend, but I'll try to make the next one, it looks like fun! Have to put them right next to each other...
