Thanks Harv, but I only get ideas where others have gone before me and maybe changed them a little.

For the body I'm using .050 3003 Aluminum and so far it seems to be a good choice, but I don't have anything to compare it to since this is my first effort with working with aluminum.  I did do the body work on my truck, so I have some experience with 20 gauge cold rolled steel, but that was my first experience really doing body work also and I didn't have to start from scratch there.  When I went east in December I also picked up a couple sheets of .063 3003 aluminum just in case I needed something heavier someplace.

c ya,

Sum

Sum, are you shooting for this years SW?

Everything looks great.

Curious to see how you will approach the air inlet for the motor.


ALSO

After your first run if you decide that driving that fast is not your cup of tea, I will be happy to suit up and take it for a spin with the peddle mashed for ya……

Hi Sum, I was wondering if you have been annealing the aluminum panels before they are formed?  Are you free forming some of the bigger panels? On the top piece, did you use a "hammerform pattern" or free form? Would it be possible for you to capture "sum" of your techniques with the camera? Hey, I know you are busier than a 1 armed paper hanger with all the projects going on so if this these questions require to much time to answer, I DO Understand. Take Care, Mike R.

Heck I was shooting for SW last year  cry and I'm afraid to make any predictions yet.  Let's see how far I am in May.

.........Curious to see how you will approach the air inlet for the motor................

The air inlet for the NA motor starts here.........

I have not annealed any of the aluminum to this point.  The 3003 is pretty soft.  Now for some of the more complicated areas I might have to if they get work hardened.  Every thing has been free formed to fit the body mounts that form like a wire form.  The body mounts and how I formed the aluminum is on the site and if you can't find the pages let me know, but here is the index page....

........... most of what you are asking about is from page 124 on, but if you can't find what you want there get back to me.

Hope to see you at El Mirage maybe next November again,

Sum

Very Nice, lovely fabrication especially on the panel work but you may need a few more skin pins by the time they are done.

No matter how many Clecos you have, they aren't enough....or they are the wrong size.
