    X-brace tacked into place in the door area on the Frogette. Looking good Jeff! Justin and Sage tag teaming the photo bomb.

    We hit a snag with the rear housing. Now it's all fixed up and back in the shop.

    Huge milestone reached today. Jeff stepped up the plate and knocked it out out of the park building the chassis and getting the Frogette rolling.

    I don't know how this is the first time I've seen this, but it is awesome. Beautiful work.

    That is pretty killer. Going to have the world's shortest drive shaft!

    My dad told me a story, from when he worked at General Motors, where he and another engineer swapped a Corvette engine into a Corvair. It kept snapping the driveshaft because it was so short! I'm curious how it'll work out for this car I imagine the technology is a teensy bit better nowadays than back then.

    So far we've mostly just been showing Jeff's hard work and skills. Time to jump back into the cartoon network, and bust out some more custom pieces on the #Frogette.

    Premo supervising mocking up some new interior panels on the #Frogette. Plotter really comes in handy before letting the sparks fly.

    Pretty rare when we can show off our CAD work. This is generally what we look at all day, just different vehicles. Only took about 300 hours to digitally generate the #Frogette with @mstaylor13. Still along way to go on this project.

    Sorry for the delay in our regular scheduled programming. Jeff's shop has been going through some major updates as we up our capabilities!

    After some reorganization at the JMS shop, back to business on the #Frogette. Jeff getting the reinforced inner rocker panels mounted to the body and ready for mounting.
