More random pictures

Other random stuff that we did today:
John, your ECU box is finally in

Muffler endcap.  No, that little hole should not be there.  Will need to plug it with weld.

Figuring out how long the chain needs to be.  Turns out it needs to be 50 links, exactly what CAD predicted.
So the drivetrain for some reason doesn't quite fit the CAD model, and the bearing carrier is offset by about a quarter of an inch.  We need to mill down a diff cap and re-press the drivetrain bearing to make the drivetrain fit where it's supposed to.
