Got word from painter that chassis can get picked up tonight. Powder coat guy called to say wheels are ready. Plus Millionaireracing exhaust arrived today. Great day for the Exige build 😀

Excited that I'm somewhat local to this car and can't wait to see it in person someday.
You still on target for your track day?

Barely. Car should be running by the end of week. Worry is painter finishing rest of paint work in time. Secret custom paint job coming soon. 😉

Semi took the day off, I had been too busy all week since chassis got back from paint shop. Funny thing with my business i had my best sales day of the year while trying to work on Exige. Started day with engine still sitting behind the car. Finished the day fully installed. Wires, hoses, mounts, cables finished. Tomorrow will do gas tank, radiator, new battery mount and maybe even get it started.
