    Nice Jim.....if your neighbors didn’t know you were building a car, they do now. Time to let out the clutch and take it for a ride.

    Congratulations Jim! Very well done!

    One comment on your brake system though: I only see one reservoir feeding the two master cylinders. I highly recommend you feed each master with its own reservoir; that way a failure in the front brake system doesn't cause the rear to fail and vice versa. All the US manufacturers went to independent brake systems several years BEFORE they added seat belts...

    Cheers, and congratulations again!
