    RIP Haynes

    Anyone who has turned a wrench on most anything mechanical likely knows the name Haynes manual. It's originator, and still board chairman, has just passed away.
    Seems he started out by helping a friend repair his bug-eye (frog eyed, for you Brits) Sprite, documented the process, and the rest is history.
    Thank you, John Hayes. Your work is appreciated.

    Big DITTO! Would not surprise me if the owner savings in labor is well into 7 digits, in addition to the satisfaction of "fixin' it myself."
