WE have had a good week!  Andy's buggy now resides over in his car which has had an Aggie conversion  it now again hold 2 cars its amazing what one can get rid of when one is motivated.  Dave has rejoined our efforts, he and I noodled out a dry sump tank yesterday that he will build at his house, we started on the fire bottle placement but had a small clearance issue because the car owner forgot about such small things as fire bottle bracket thickness  shocked !
Joey had a good day welding while John made some lower tubes.

Then John and I made a steel run to get the 12 guage for the fire wall and 4 sticks of tubing for a roll cage for his car.

We then built the rear hoop and two side hoops for his car. He had an intresting pattern.  He built the pattern out of 1/2" electrical conduit.  His technique was to build a bend that fit the car as tight as he wished, with a little extra length on the legs. after he had a bend for each corner he then cut and joined the the legs for the perfect outside profile then we duplicated the bend angles and leg lenghts to the exact profile-----REMEMBER to compensate for the incrased width.  John bent his inside the outer wall of the car by 1" because he used 1/2 and we bent up 1 3/4 ew.  We went to great lengths to put the ew "stripe" exactly centered under the "set screw" that holds the tubing in the die---made it much easier to keep all the bend inthe same plane and it lay flat on the ground when we were through.  YEAH

The Fuel tank natrual color fuel cell that is a 12.5 gallon cap. that we will have to plug the hole in what is now a side. we will put the fill cap, return & vent line on what was and end. We will put the course filter inside of the tank and the final filter between the fuel pump and the Pressure regulator. 

The Alum tank is the radiator in a box with its cooling water behind the rear axle.

On the other side of it will be a dry sump tank that will be rectangular holding up to 20 qts of oil. will be run with min of 12 up depending where and what eng configuration.

The upper two and the dr. side mid bar will be removable as will be the nose cone and the bottom panel behind the rear axle.

I would have guessed opposite, must be a poly boat tank from some place like Overton's?

Brown Santa brought the hubs today---unwrap them Sat ---we will take picts of where we are putting the frt axle.  Ordered 4 port fuel pressuer reg. and Brake shoes today. 

Also talked to Marshal Guages today they have a guage series that are programable to some extent. I am looking at aa 30" vacum guage for the dry sump system that MAY be able to generate a signal at a predetermind setting to keep up with the HEALTH of the rings.

Sparky you're cruising right along! cheers

The build is great-I just wish you's post a few more pics for us beginners- but I'm not complaining!
