Like wise Maj---it was very good to meet you---we didn't have smooth sailing we had visibility issues-- hence a 109 MPH pass and a safe stop far ---we have glare and distortion issues---major evaluation and possibiliy-we will be going back to the drawing board on driver position.

Well I now think I know what A is

A.  Put the car in the shop with the nose point out the door so that bright sun light will shine on it in the mornings simulating an early El M or B'ville run. Put the newest front tires on the front and the smallest tires I have on the back creating a negative rake---worst case possible.  Mount a board across the yard by the back fence to function as a surveyors "stick". Suit up, helmet on,  strap in, shut the canopy, mark the line of sight and field of vision, also test for clearness of vision some how.

B.  Remove the canopy,  repeat the process.

If we need more forward vision we will flat top the nose to increase the down vision

C. Start testing various widths and tints to determine the angle and width and height of the new front canopy panel.

If all of the above do not get us to where we need to be then------ cry

 
D. Yank the nose cone off--- chop the cage off,  raise the driver at least 6 inches and lower the seat by 2 inches for a much more up right seating position

Either one requires modifying the Sir Francis canopy-- one more than the other.

Here is to an interesting off season we are planning on running in Nov with no canopy and a tinted face shield helmet if necessary.

 it is also all about the perseverance  more than anything else it perseverance there are reasons why there are so many unfinished cars---  most problems could have been overcome.
