How about sometime after Thanksgiving?

This will give us time to finish up the TWS (Texas World Speedway) T/D and obtain all of the items needed for repairs...

The F4i needs a little attention.
It's got a few spots that need some care prior to paint

Its awesome that you can find someone on this forum who is good with fiberglass and willing to help...friggin awesome networking.
If any of you want to just pay someone to do it, be sure and check boat and surfboard shops. I had a buddy who busted up the fiberglass hood on his car in high school. He was freaking out cause his dad was going to kill him, we went down to the beach and found a boat repair shop and had the hood back the next day looking great(no paint, it was primer only even before the damage)

So, Im sure this isnt news to alot of you, but some of you might want to keep that in mind.
