Sorry for the late response, It's been a bit crazy around here.
Thanks for checking in and letting us know. I know many of us were concerned with the sudden departure. I do however completely understand the desire to disconnect form everything. I've been there myself, just never followed through on it.
I for one applaud you for having the strength to do it. Sounds like you are focusing on what is truly important, and I respect that.
I like what you've done with the new rig. If you ever get the itch to try it out again, we will be starting up a less formal, far more casual format on ACC to try and draw a bit more interest. Not sure if you have that sim or not, but if you do, would love to see you join us once in a while.
Just a couple snapshots of my progress. Still need to reinforce the rear sail panels that host the rear surround speakers. The shoulder belt tension system is also anchored low in those panels. There will be a tall central panel at the rear between the sails that will make for a nice steering wheel rack.
Ready for action!
