      That's a well-engineered transport system, I'm sure by the 3rd engine you'll avoid fixing that wall dent again.

        Ed, I'm appalled! You haven't constructed an elevator yet?

          Definitely your most entertaining post.

          Did the TR6 engine damage the wall too?

            Thanks for the comments, Guys.

            Yeah, Superman sort of disappeared when the real work started.

            Yes, the damage to the wall was right on top of the repair I did from the TR6. I only have one more LBC to do--the MGA. I hope I can remember to remember.

            Hmmmm. Elevator, you say? Hmmm.

              Wow, Ed, that was a major undertaking! I'm impressed. Maybe you should share what you did with (N.C.I. S.) "Gibbs" when he finishes building the boat in his basement!

                  Ed, I shudder to imagine what would have happened had something let go with the engine part way up the stairs. Your CFO definitely would have had words with you about that! Yikes!
