"the sheer magnitude of the undertaking..."

:D I thought this was a fun article. Just getting caught up on some magazine reading over the holidays. Not Elan specific, but I expect it is in the same spirit.

Trying to not take this too seriously as I have not picked up my "new" 1970 Plus 2 yet and I have no real idea of "the sheer magnitude of the undertaking" yet! :?

Well Stu ------just take your time ---get a black board on the wall and prioritize the list -- as the job is done wipe it off and have a beer and do something else for the day -----if the task takes all night thems the breaks ----my elan has taken 3 1/2 years and its still not quite finished but its so much fun to drive it competes with the 7 for road time ---I'm rebuilding the motor this winter so the performance should just sparkle in the spring---ed
