[urq] UPG 25 Road Trip

It has been funny that I have had a few "I just happened to be in the neighborhood" or "would you happen to have this little part" or "don't bother sending it, I'll come pick it up" visits to my place by the local urq guys lately.  Funny how they just so happen to be wearing business clothes with ties.  I don't want a cape, they tend to get caught in power tools. ;)

At this point I'm not stressed about getting it done in time.  Just getting back to it has been good.  I've also run into trouble getting parts when vendors say they will get them to me.  For example, ALL the bolts and brackets for the car were supposed to be CAD plated, heat stress relieved and ready for pickup by this past Monday.  Not done yet. Fuel lines?  Going to have to make new ones as the ones I paid for over a year ago still haven't been shipped from Germany.  Oh well.

"Certain somebody" would deserve a cape of some sort because they would
need to be superhuman to get it running and drivable in the next 10
