Good News, Bad News

Although we did receive more parts today, and some pretty significant ones like fuel tank and transmission, I was not able to scan them in.

That's the bad news.

The good news is that the reason why I didn't have time to scan them was that we were very busy today making some critical decisions on how to proceed with the design process, specifically the milling of models and with whom that work would be done. Pairing the guidance of potential suppliers, advisers and our industry connections with our instincts on the best methods for our business model (meeting time, budget, scope and what we can learn from doing things a certain way) we were able to formulate a plan. We feel this plan is an effective combination of industry standard and methodology that will again, allow us to meet our goals and do so in a way unique to LM and one that will allow us to continually develop new designs like no other auto manufacturer, whether work be outsourced as in this primordial development process, or brought in house for future builds.
