You can drive it next year. First stage of major reconstruction was on my knee. Removed 50% of the medial meniscus (aka cartilage) and some moderate arthritis from under the knee cap. Was absolutely 'effing killing me for the first two days but is good enough now to work on stripping the car this weekend. Pull the motor maybe next weekend.
Just two holes, one for the camera and one for the surgical equipment. Pretty cool now that I'm past it.
