hey

just wanted to post this to at least share it with someone.

yesterday i came home from work an d ws a bit bummed because my girl and little boy were not going to be home today.

but i found  a big heavy box insted on the doorstep.

a big box filled with my dms crank, flywheel, and rods. all things that make me a very happy guy today. especially after going to ninove this weekend and seeing some nice cars there. it will not be an engine this summer yet but i will be working on it and hopefully i will make it into a nice setup by next year.

thanks for listening  Grin

I love parcels waiting for me when I get home. Sometimes I get them sent to work, and once my colleagues left a parcel full of old dealer frames in a filing cabinet and waited for me to open it ;-) They dont quite get it, but I was certainly happy!
