Hopefully you can at least find a safe route home soon!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Found out today I could cross the border into Washington and head east, come back into BC without having to present a negative Covid test to get in - but I don't have my passport with me - still screwed, maybe not getting through until Sunday!

I was actually wondering if you could go that way yesterday and had the same thought about the passport. Darn.

Got home today, found out that they would let me cross the border into Washington and back to BC after all without a passport or neg Covid test because of the special circumstances due to the flooding and highway closures. An 11 hr drive, but a nice sunny one once I got to the dry side of Washington. Super nice and understanding border gaurds on both sides.
While on the coast, I got a chance to snap some new pics of the coupe body, getting rained on in a sketchy shed. Lots of spare body parts come with it, 4 front fenders, 2 hoods, 3 rear fenders and 3 grille shells. At least it didn't get submerged in the floods
Gotta rescue it in the spring..........

From the looks of the shed that might as well be outside.

Surprisingly it doesn't look too bad considering its storage conditions. Nab me one of those cute little Scouts while you're bringing that one home

I'm glad to hear they made an exemption on passports for the circumstances and you were able to get back home safely!

He as a lot of Scouts, at one time over 100, and has been selling them off - at one time he also had 120 Travelalls - a serious Cornbinder addiction

Got a start on the frame building, 4 link mounts are on, made the lower half of the driveshaft loop removeable to make installing or removing the driveshaft easier. The front crossmember and x in the center are just temporary until I get the main front member made. Nice to have the plan for the frame of the other car, plus I have it sitting right here for reference, even though they are very different. Still waiting for the coil overs and master cylinder/booster but there's lots of other fab to work on..
