Thanks for the update, Jay. This is a glimpse as to why "target dates" are often pushed back, and why peoples anger is sometimes misplaced.

What's cool is that Jay tells us what's going on instead of a snow job.
Wish more people operated that way.

These continued delays are a perfect example of why I hate to take money up front from people; I'd be tearing my hair out if I had a bunch of deposits from well-meaning folks, only to be continually putting them off.  Its bad enough as it is... :(

Jay,
I seen that time warp is #34 , not that I'm whining, but I have that I'm 34, or with the test fit due to my booster does that bump me off till we know? I'm not complaining or upset,  just curious to know where I fall is all!! Thanks for the updates!

Another delay, hopefully a minor one.  The foundry emailed me today to say the schedule for pouring the valve covers has been pushed back about a week.  They are planning on pouring them early next week.
