I think there's about 9,000 in the upper chassis Smiley

I doubt there are 9,000 in the entire state of Wisconsin . . .  grin

Stefan - talk to Chris about those rivets, we had a chat about how many and the guys worked it out that there were a little more than 10,000. however, that was in October 2013, so there may have been some "slimming" done since then.

Just love your imagery. SOOOOOO very glad the project has you as it "visual historian" you grasp of the complex nature of the work and how to share it allows so many more people to truly understand the magnitude of this milestone in land speed racing. Next time I come over, we're going for a pint!

Lots of exciting things going on in the workshop recently. The upper chassis has been dismantled and painted ready for final assembly. We've had plenty of visitors - including Prince Philip who seemed to really enjoy chatting to the engineers. Also Pete Taylor - part of the Aussie Invader team - great to meet up with our competitors from the other side of the world...

The lower chassis is gradually getting filled with air brake workings, hydraulics, fuel tanks and jet engine ancillaries...

After that it was time to see if there was still room for the EJ200 jet...

The upper chassis ribs were put in position too. It gives a fantastic idea of how the finished car will look...

It's alive and running.

Not sure about the wheels though.

Seems they have run into some issues regarding the upper rear structure. http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-31097267

LSR fans might like this video UK motoring journalist Chris Harris made about the BLOODHOUND build. He also went for a flight with Andy, to experience the g forces of a 1,000mph run:

Enjoy!
