yeah.. had a slipped disc in my lower back since first half of november.. everything related to bodymovement came to a halt for a whole month... man.. backproblems are so much pita, i cant find words for it...


anyway.. i started gardening, splitting firewood and fiddling with the car very easy somewhere around new year and look what has happened ;)

Got myself for christmas some go fast bits from RetroTurbo and MKM and got the iceblasting guy to come over. that didnt work anything near i expected or better hoped, but anyway.. i started painting the bottom now.. ..whatever... The panel glue and that goopy coating resists iceblasting very very good.. but the guy told me if he cant get rid of it with his machine, just paint it.. no water possible behind that.

I recall sandblasting as a kid. Had sand in my ears for days.

Going to be sweet.

I'm afraid that means "no". I thought the car was ready for TÜV at some point.
Keep up the good work!
