Hey Charlie ... checking in. I hope you are making good progress.


Take care of the knees! You always press on regardless ... You'll get there! Soon you'll be driving this:)

The Version 3 looks amazing. Let's hope Sam moves forward with this:)


It is encouraging to see your little company forge ahead with development of these R&P units.

I bet this setup takes all the "old" out of driving a 510 and brings the experience right on par with motoring along in a contemporary sportscar.


Nice ride. Nice handling!

I guess you are going to make us go to your site to find out what is new in the new version.


Hey, is Sam any closer to making a 521 version?

New in tank fuel pump installed this weekend in the 521 tank by a good friend in Modesto.


We are down to the very last fixes that come with putting any fully disassembled vehicle back on the road:


Minor exhaust leak

Checking temp probes for the new following system and new gauges and fan controller to ensure accuracy


Calibrate fuel gauge

Make better battery cables

Install ground strap to aluminum radiator to eliminate possible electrolysis (Thanks for that tip, Matt Stoffregen)

Fix minor fluid leak



I would have driven up to Modesto to check out Justin's progress this weekend, but Central California is finally getting some rain!

Wearing my County hat, I have been helping monitor local flooding issues as we receive a very welcome boatload of snow in our high country.
