To deep as of now. But I'm going to try and get it to be about .010 or less below the surface, when finished.

And I did, after A LOT OF WORK! LOL

Man, it's almost a shame cars will run on the track; it looks like a work of art right now.... pristine. You've done a REALLY good job, John, and all that have helped you.

Tonight I decided I would celebrate my TSRA Open TQ, and fastest lap that I have ever turned; by staying late in the night to finish laying all of the braid. These pictures don't prove that I did that!

Got five of the lanes striped tonight. The green that I mixed up looked ugly. I also ran out of red and yellow to make the orange paint, so we got some more paint on the way.

You BET dude!!! I should wear my African robes to put the SPOOK on you!!! You would be so distracted that your car would be whapping the wall at every turn!!!

As for the track...WOW! It looks great! Great job to John, Chase and others. Thanks for providing us with another fine facility to play.
