For the past few months, the project of rebuilding my Swift DB-1 has ground to a halt.  Trying to get work done in my basement–because my garage is unheated and has a variety of other issues that have made it a challenging place to work on a race car–took me only so far.  And with spring coming, I really want to get back on track and start reassembling the car.  So…the project is moving to a new workspace:

A proper garage, with enough space for a Formula Ford and everything that goes along with it, plus a concrete floor in excellent condition.  All things that I didn’t have until now.
