Well a few more things are out of the way almost...............

   

.............. I got the push bar mostly done ( http://purplesagetradingpost.com/sumner/bvillecar-2/construction%20page-100.html

.............. and .........................

 

........... since I moved the chute tubes back I moved the attach point for the chute lines further back into the rear door area (  http://purplesagetradingpost.com/sumner/bvillecar-2/construction%20page-101.html )

............... and ........................ 



............... pretty much finished the fuel tank except for the filler, return line, vent/tip over valve and pump/filter mount (  http://purplesagetradingpost.com/sumner/bvillecar-2/construction%20page-102.html ) which I'll work on today.

I'm getting stuff done, but August is coming fast,

I can tell you if he is a little shy.
It is a hemorrhoid pusher.

Note: Fill the pusher tube with expanding foam after the surface finish is appied to keep the crud out, and increase the clearance between the push roller and the steel tube to let the crud out.  wink

Mr. Sumner (hope I spelled it right).....Nice work, I just finished my "all in one" push bar, chute tie down along with my chute pack mount that I can move all over the back of my car to check which is the best spot....will send pics when I can figure out how to do it.  I've got a 27 Highboy (Boss 302), and Bob Stroud said I needed a chute launcher, but I don't see any other 27's with a launcher, plus I don't have any room in the trunk with 4 Group 31 batteries (Optima), my cage supports and fuel cell to hold the can.  So being the country boy that I am, figured that I would do some highway tests to see where it works the best.....will let you know as the weather gets warmer to conduct my tests.  Just want you to also know that you are a great inspiration....I just turned 64, built my own experimental airplane (sold it in 2006), but my first love is hot rods, and in a couple weeks, I'm going to do some sky diving, just to show those young pups whose Boss!  You're workmanship looks great!  Keep Up The Good Work!

It's just Sum or Sumner, my first name  smiley.  You need to get someone to follow you when you do your chute tests and video that  cheesy and then post it  shocked.  I would love to see that.  I almost went sky diving 40 years ago, but chickened out and don't see it in my future now.  You do that and maybe you will be an inspiration to me.  I love to fly, but think I'll stick to having wings under me or a parasail above me.

Take lots of pictures of your build and post them,

Sum

Hey Sum,

nice work on the fuel tank and coolers.

We made a mistake to fill ours with fuel before fully testing its integrity which meant we couldn't reweld dodgy bits. It looked fine by eye, and held water OK, but when with fuel it sprouted leaks in a few places. As you know with aluminium, the slightest bit of dust and it compromises the weld.

So, if you haven't already, please check the tank with air under water under pressure or the like so you can remedy the situation prior to filling.

Keep up th good work and hope you are well.

Believe me I'd love to Sum and take you up on your offer of a tour.

I am finishing this job at the end of July which will mean the possibility of some time off (I need it after a year of 50 hour weeks) but simply not cashed up enough having bought a farm.

I think we'll definitely save to come when the tank is sorted and bring that with us.

It has taken me almost 65 years to get to the point where I can make a trip over there, so I understand, but if the chance comes up you have a place to stay and a tour.

Sure. And of course you can stay at the farm. It is just north of the Twelve Apostles on the Great Ocean Road (one of the world's great must drives).

We were there this weekend and had 8 big kangaroos and a wallaby loafing around. Mind you there was also a truckload of snakes and spiders too but I reckon you can deal with that given you probably have dealt with the odd rattler or two.

Does this mean its a definite that you are coming next year?
