Wayno, did you need to sand out any mold or other marks on your new PETG windshield?

Absolutely not. They lay felt over the mold when they form it. All I had to do was trim and drill it.  :cheers: Wayno

404 is a great number. It was one of the original area codes established in 1947, and originally covered the entire state of Georgia. Now if you know someone in Georgia tell them you were thinking of them. The numbers look great btw.

I think it might relate to an Iskendarian cam grind.

Wayno,

It was good to see you and the car on the salt! The car looked great!

When I talked to you, you were over 120 mph on your runs. What did you end up with for a top speed?
With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead. -- RFC 1925

You can't make a race horse out of a pig. But if you work hard enough at it you can make a mighty fast pig. - Bob Akin

Nice looking tank, had the opportunity to look at it one morning before our daily thrash... I think the only pictures I took all week were the sunrise on Friday  :-D

Actually Ralph I noticed you put "blow" and I thought "gee, he sounds just like a good ol boy" , from Preston ,  :cheers:

I hung with Wayno , Gus and crew for a fair bit of time during the week, rode in the push car, buttoned up the body and helped a little round the pit, picked him up on the return road., met his great daughter Brook and her husband ....I got a few runs on the GoPro which can be edited into something reasonable..
Then we went and stayed in Salina for two nights and did a bit of a tour around the valley, I ate steak for breakfast the first day then we had Wayno's well known apricot smoked steak for dinner, we had a great time , yet again, there
Good on ya brother you've done really well, can you , er send me some squash( running joke people :wink: :roll:)
