The Happynole Ride
I would like to start by thanking Joe for dropping his car off to us for R&D of alot of parts. He also has us doing a couple things for him for the convention. Here are some pics, I will explain what we are doing as we go.

I got the idea while I was at Gran Turismo East last month. A customer having his car serviced had a tiny little trailer with a toolbox and a set of M wheels and a bar to lock them down. I asked about it and they told me the guy was in the office. We got to talking and he told me he picked it up at harbor freight:
- Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices

I stopped at Harbor Freight a few days later. The trailer was a kit in a box, and "some assembly was required" so I was less than excited. They had a 4'x4' trailer on sale that caught me eye. Instead of a ramp, mine has a tailgate. Very similar to this:
- Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices

I picked up a box similar to this:
- Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices

I wasn't comfortable with it just sitting on the tongue, so I asked Mark to add some reinforcement. I also asked him to make the lockable wheel mounts.

Looking good so far

Is it possible to get those B13 lips made out of abs plastic or urathane? A carbon fiber lip won't last 2 weeks if that in my area,.... it's filled with pot holes.

My white b13 is loosing paing on the panel too. Makes me hate to wash it. That trailer is awesome.
