Welcome to my Bugeye project

Welcome to my latest project. I am building a 1959 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite with a little twist. I'm putting in a 3.0 V-6 SHO engine.
Be sure to check back for updates on the progress and please leave a comment if you have any questions, feedback or advice for me.

Geek tool hack

I'm a car guy, but i'm also a big computer nerd. Here is a nice geek tool hack tip for you. If you have an old harddrive laying around before recycling it tear it appart and remove the magnets from it. These are rare earth magnets and are very powerful. They are especially good for holding tools etc.
I put one on my engine hoist. This gives me a quick place to throw the lever that pumps the hoist up and down on the hydraulic piston.
Here it is hung on the magnet. Its works great and i can just throw it there and it grabs the pipe every time. No more fiddling to put the pipe in the holder.
The little magnets are very handy and are great for keeping a tool where you need quick access to it.
