The structure to support the skin is now involving the area where the car begins to taper to the final sections. The area under the bottom rail forms around

that rail and the skin will attach to the belly pan behind the drivers compartment. The wooden pieces in the last foto post were the forms for this area.  The

pieces formed around these forms will curl under the chassis. I have also included one piece that goes over the top.

To see these images at their full size, try clicking on the image. It may enlarge. It does on my computer and the detail is eminently more evident.

The set up in the mill is to make the small end spuds that slip into the tubing to make a finished end where the tubing mates with a

support piece. Jim is holding one of the plugs and the last foto shows how it is utilized in the connection process.

Freud,

Thanks for the update.

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.

The canopy support frame has been fitted and drilled for the canopy. The size of the windshield will be determined by Les Davenport.

Jason Hosking is countersinking the canopy rivet holes before it is attached.

The windshield will be somewhere within the black lines on the skin. The machined vertical slot was used to give Les a way to see

how far down the opening had to go for him to see the horizon. The lateral dimension is yet to be determined. I don't know what

the windshield material will be.  Les is responsible for those choices.

Just joined up and read it ALL!   MOTHER OF SOURCE!  What a project.  How can a run ever out-shine such a build? 
A few years back (in the late 70's) I worked on external and internal tube lugs for the Hughes LOH (Light Observation Helicopter).  It was a tube frame unit.  Turns out that they worked really well.  This would have been a great place to use that method.  What say we scrap the existing frame and start over?  I want to help.

Gerbear, did you see that there are two sections to the diary?

I started the second one when a glitch occurred in the first. The original is permanently at home at the top of the Build Diary.

Thanks for your suggestion. I'll make certain that Hume gets to see it.

There could still be places where it would be useful.

I was wondering if I was going to get a rise out of someone.  NAH!  Go ahead, keep the frame, but Marlo, you owe the world a successful run.  I mean, let's don't have 12 years to build and 5 minutes to turn it into rubble.

01em

The canopy and it's support frame . The skin section that covers the roll cage, held in place with the clamps to begin it's final fitting. All the body panels that are in place are now finished and ready to be riveted. The riveting for the panels will wait to be done all at one time.

04em

The wide flat straps are the support strips to which the tail section panels attach. The vertical plywood holds the support strips in place so that the support tubing from the sliding tail section can be located. They attach to the sliding framework on the triangular plate that attaches to the tubing. The tube at the top, on which the plastic wheels will roll, is the guide rail for the tail section. This will allow the entire tail section to be moved rearward for access to the  air and fire bottles.

07em
The large tube is a chute cannister and the pneumatic cylinder is a chute release. Plastic roller is evident on the support tube.

13em

The angle strips are the attachment points for the lower tail section panels.

14em

Overall view of the tail section.
