Meeting With The Fabricators

Well this week and last week has had it's share of challenges for team UFO. Kel had been laboring hard on the blue prints to be ready in time for Monday's meeting with the fabricators (today). Our meeting went REALLY well, we finally have that "Great unknown factor" answered, which was "What the heck is this thing going to cost us to build." We were so happy to find out that it will cost us far, FAR less than what we initially expected, which means we will be able to sell our Bicycle Mini Camper far below what we originally thought. WhooooHoooo!!!

OK that's the good news, bad news... well not really bad news, just another minor unexpected set back. Turns out that the fabricators actually need detailed blue prints of each part of our camper separately. So that mean that Kel is off to the drawing board to whip those up so they will be ready for after the Christmas holidays are over. Poor Kel, just when he thought his work was done.

More good news. I always try to follow some bad or slightly bad depending on how you look at it with some good news. We are still smack bang on schedule and we should have our Bicycle Mini Camper done well in time for MEC's Bike fest in the spring around May. This is truly awesome because we'll have some time to do some road testing before the big event. Stellar!! :)

Blueprints Nearing Completion

It's been a great weekend, I met with our partner Kel who has been working on the Blueprints for our mini camper, they are very near completion, he's been busting his hump dimensioning all the drawings and soon will be doing the electrical drawings and once that is done we will be able to get many of the unknown factors off of our list and be well on the way to having our prototype built... so can't wait! :)
