Thanks for posting your pictures. I really appreciate your effort. :supz: The Fiat project seems to be a lot of work, must be as much or even more than the 109 Emil project. Maybe your sheetmetal guys have to do overtime? Good to be able to see the progress of the projects at MeierMotors. Keep up the good work!
