Everyone wanted to "see down under" when the girl wore it at the wet T-shirt contest.

I've cleaned it up with bleach so it looks almost new.

Hi Fellows!

I took a few days off but Hume and Jason haven't. I have done fotos most every week except Speedweek

so I can bring the diary back up to date with 4 or 5 new posts.

In order to shape the body support pieces that will form the transition from the vertical sides to the under body,

they used the original buck to make hammer forms over which they will shape the transition pieces. The lower

section is constantantly tapering toward the back, just as the panels above do. So, all of these forms are cut on an angle,

as well as the contour curve to the flat bottom panel. The angle lines on the wood show the difference that the taper

generates.

I'll post those pieces tonight and in the next post I'll show you the finished supports that are made over these forms.

Nice to be back and Thanks for your patience.

FREUD

I need help in posting them. Now that my granddaughter is away to school, I'll have to dupe someone into

showing me how to prepare and post on uTube,

Freud,
   A question for you and Mr. Hume. At what temperature is the new streamliner skin straight? Is there a way to make an aluminum body so it stays straight in a big temperature change?

  I can't even begin to compare my amateur tin work on my lakester to Mr. Humes but it really looked bad when the sun hit it at Bonneville in August. Come to think of it, my old 8A Luscombe wings didn't look too smooth on a 110 degree day in Redding either. I think I see why most of the streamliners are fiberglass now.
 
  The metal work and the substructure on the Treit liner are a piece of art! Kudos to Mr.Hume and his crew.

  My oldest son told me years ago, "done is good too, dad".
 
  I've had a ride in it now! Slow but a ride. grin

Great question hitz.

The difference in most aluminum skins and this one is thickness. The entire skin is 0.085", considerably thicker than any airplane wing:to my knowledge.

If you go back thru this build diary and the original one, you will see how close the support ribs are. There is much more support than usual. But actually

I have no reason to make that statement. It has been neither 105F or -20F in Hume's shop. So at the shop temp, it looks excellent and I guess it's

something they won't do extensive testing on to answer your question. Some engineer will likely give an opinion. I've given you my uneducated one.

Harvey, you drove me to explore some ancient art and the affects heat and humidity have had on the Sistine Chapel.

Michelangelo soldiered on and finished a masterpiece and when completed he wrote a description of his work experience.

I quote him;

My beard turns up to heaven; my nape falls in,

Fixed on my spine: my breast-bone visibly

Grows like a harp: a rich embroidery

Bedews my face from brush-drops thick and thin.

My loins into my paunch like levers grind:

My buttock like a crupper bears my weight;

My feet unguided wander to and fro;

In front my skin grows loose and long; behind,

By bending it becomes more taut and strait;

Crosswise I strain me like a Syrian bow:

Whence false and quaint, I know,

Must be the fruit of squinting brain and eye;



Hume said he can agree with Michelangelo except that Michelangelo didn't have an acetylene torch, a Bridgeport Mill, a Miller welder

or an English Wheel to help him, so Hume said the technology has given him an advantage over the storied artist.

Therefore both will put their art on display for the public to judge......when it's done. The Chapel has had it's facelift after 500 years, so apparently it's

still an ongoing project. Hume has about 485 years to go to reach the same level.

I doubt many climbed the scaffold to inquire of Michelangelo, "when will you be done? and what will the heat an humidity do to this picture?"

I appreciate your dedication if you have read this in it's entirety.
