killerb1971 Posted March 30, 2008 Share Posted March 30, 2008 Well.....have to cut the temp firewall still, but all bulkheads were completed at the end of Feb. I have taken a month off to do some mechanic side work. My good friend Gene (and fellow builder of a quickie q1 and cozy MKIV) had a transmission go out on his honda accord, so we changed it out and did several other things including timing belt, axles, etc. I also sold my Geo metro, and purchased a Mitsubishi eclipse that needed an engine rebuild. So I got all that knocked out, and ended up taking on 2 other engine projects. One is still in process. All of this side work (other than Gene's which I did for free, but he gave me 2 gal of MGS 285) is "COZY MONEY". I have dedicated myself to this Cozy as a "Noha's Ark" kind of project. Its as if I must build it no matter what........and I WILL! I ran out of BID somehow durring the CH4 process. I think its because I made some wrong direction cuts when I first started out. I learned to be conservative when cutting cloth to maximize the efficeincy. It also could be that I was shorted on my BID from ACS.....I don't know. Anyways I have no BID left but I have the entire roll of uni for my chapter 5 kit. next week I will go to ACS and get more resin and hardener, and also pickup my ch 6,7, and 8 kits if the are available. I am going through withdrawls from not building so bad that I am starting to twitch! This stuff is like a drug, its SO addicting. I cant wait to get started on CH 5. I have been keeping up with everyones progress and it (as always) is a HUGE inspiration. My hope is to have ch 7 completed by end of summer, and the plane on its main gear for Christmass this year. If I live in the dark......eat nothing but rice.........get no sleep whatsoever.......YEP, I'm sure I can do it!!! Everyone keep up the great work. I will be posting regularly again soon. Here are my CH 4 pics from Feb. Quote Rob Wiehl COZY MKIV #1521 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
