jacksoni:
It seems to me that when there is no monetary conflict, truth in vision and eye care has the the same conditions for each profession.
As long as the patient is the primary concern, everything is excellent.
Marlo's 'liner is progressing at an adequate pace. As long as he is happy everyone else should be overjoyed. The fotos I did just over a week ago involved the fitting of the canopy. It is a very complex part of the skin and so many curves come together in that area that it's a slow go.
As soon as the canopy section is fitted, the panels behind there are not as complex. But then again, sometimes when things look simple it requires a huge amount of preparation to make it work out. 
I'll see if I can attach a foto from that shoot.
There are 3 images of the canopy. The shot of the inside shows that the inside is finished to a standard that practically matches the outside. Hume built a fixture to maintain the shape as it is finished. This eliminated flexing and any problem when it's time to attach this piece. The side panels are finished with 80 grit on either a long block or a contour pad  and when I was there almost every panel was finished to this level.

Since I don't have a handle on Treit's website yet, I will start this build site. When I figure out the website, I will post there but this will give an insight into this incredible car.
The body is very complex and when the frame was completed we thought that it was a done deal. The body has taken at least 5 times as long to do as did the chassis.

Dr Freud- once again, I agree.
Thanks for the update on the liner and the photos.  Awesome.  Really look forward to first runs.

So does Marlo.
Check the build diary every few days. I will add fotos to a thread about his car.
This coming Monday, Aug 6, Marlo and I are going to Humes. I will have more fotos after that trip and will try to post before I leave for Bendover on Thursday.

These fotos were done March 7,2007 The images are numbered in the upper right corner. Click on the small images to open them.

2.   The hole in the upper portion of the central panel is a lift point for transporting the car. The section with the hole and the one immediately to the right are the last "fairly flat" panels before the tail section starts. The end of the right panel is at the bulkhead of the driverís compartment. The panel immediately above those two, with the shaft, is the top of the cowl area. A later image will show it's skin.
 3.   A better view of the shaft that holds the fingers that secures the cowl panel to the body.
 5.   The panels of the first two shots are now shown on the opposite side. The left side shows the throttle and the linkages. The lift point is also visible in the front panel.
 8. The tab tacked to the frame rail holds the plastic roller (white) that the hook for holding the cowl in place hooks under. Edited. The white rollers have been replaced with black one that have a much higher melting point. It took a month to replace the white rollers.)

Continuation of Aug 1 posting

 9.   Closer view of attachment.
10.   Another of the attachment points.
11.   The shaft slides back and forth to secure and release the cowl panel. A later view will show the control handle.
12.   The panels and the ribs are drilled for the rivets. Final joint finishing is underway. Then the rivets will be installed. Each head is flush fitted and does not require sanding or filing to be flush.

Freud,
   What a work of art! Is there any possibility of you posting some pictures of the motor with the whipple mounted in front?

Thanks,
Tom G.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

When you look at the effort, the quality of the fabrication, the design that has gone into that car it really makes my future efforts on a small engine lakester look like a pimple on a horse's Acura! Man that is one impressive project!!!!

Tom.....I've just put this stuff on because it is all current and I didn't have to dig up CDs or negs and scan them.
I have a full plate for today but tonight I will look for earlier stuff to show the remotely mounter blowers and the drive system for them.
Glad u are liking it.

I'd feel honored to be allowed to see the real thing.  Do you think it's possible to receive an invitation?
