Not much....
Only that the wheels are finished.
I've been away because of work: 6 weeks to India, 2 weeks France, 1 week
Denmark, 1 week Germany, now 3 weeks Colombia.
And 3 weeks holiday with wife and kids. (and few days Poland)
Next month I've a week holiday so I can work on the car again.
Next step is the suspension, etc...
