Well if all goes well I should be able to know if I will fit in this thing Sunday night.  I put i tacked in the diags on the left side yesterday.  Should get in the right side today, and planning on fitting and tacking the 1/4 plate that will be the seat bottom Sunday, and tacking a 6" X12" strap to simulate the fire wall for the back of the helment.  but when I climbed in last night---I think we will be going on a diet or back to biengineering the diagonals---GOD forbid we have to go to a designated driver shocked

5'9" 165 at your service  cheers

Check out reply #45 and #47 to see how I do it when I don't use the bandsaw or the mill.

Yup, that thread is another great resource! I like the line drawing of the one I posted helps newbies imagine how it works. Sneaking up on the compound miter of my helmet hoop as we speak.

I am learing to use the chop saw and I am getting where I can do single plane fairly good. Where I am running into problems is this darn tapered Hoop-de-do shape I have chosen---lol nothing is parallel or perpendicular

Yup, thats where I am taking my time sneaking up on my hoop. Same as yours tapered, at an angle etc.........I found last night after a few minutes that my center to center was off a touch more than 1/8" making one side a little loose. Time for leverage and re-fit.

Any new pictures?

most welders have a wrap around template for cutting the proper fish tail on pipe / tubing Mark it with chalk and cut away. Check with your local welding supply .

More Salvage Yard Art  grin  obtained from Summner this time--- Summner is not using the back of some tip tanks he has.  I could only get one in my my wifes car (under DURESS)  he is bring the other in Jan.  I plan on using this for the nose extension to hopefully decreasse the size of the bow wave as I may have to slightly narrow the frt. axle to be able to fair all of it. The rear "inner tire plane" comes into play!!

Whoops forgot to mention we would remove the fins---WE may have to rethink the name of the car---Road Kill comes to mind!!

That tank tips should make a real nice nose!

Hmmm, wonder if you could use one complete with fins, for the rear of the tank, and have the exhaust exit from the center of it?

Some aircraft have wing tip tanks that do not ride underneath the wing, they are attached to the end of the wing  the part that Summ still has is asymmetrical, he is going to use "parts of" them to cover the side tanks on his lakester

you could if you were willing to change the frame behind the axle and built a new 25 gal. water tank that sits behind the rear axle that is where we4 would love to have it---may be too lazy to do that---we are considering having a rear diffuser that looks very similar to that on the bottom rear

That's a bit over 225 pounds of water sloshing around behind the rear axle, tail waging the dog. I don't think that's what I would want.

Woody is running his "evaluation" to see if it is worth the effort to try to raise the back of the car 1.5-2" so that we can stay with the 24.5 tires instead of going to the 28" tires for the rake.  We really need to stay with the smaller tires if we can for gearing reasons.  It is worth the wait and ensuing effort if there is a difference---

-"I think"  but as Saltfever says data beats an opinion!!!  grin grin  waiting for Woody---we should know this week!  cheers

Any updates on what Woody did, or is it 007, top secret stuff? evil
