I guess I would keep your money Sumner,,,

No I have not been using guide coats... I felt that I am going to sand until the spots come out and reapply the sealer... It's all well right now, looking pretty good... I however discovered another profession which I do not want to do when I grow up... ha

When I started on my truck I didn't think I would like body work.  I found out I really enjoy watching bondo dust pile up on the floor :roll: .  I wouldn't want to do it for a living, but for myself it is fine.  Of course you would never know that if you saw my other vehicles, in fact my pickup needs to be completely redone.  After the lakester though and I look forward to the body on it.

I found I can save so much time with guide coats and the couple bucks for the good stuff in a spray can can save you so much time and give really good results.  I use it even during the bondo steps.

I'm anxious to see the bike in red.  I know it will look good and go fast.

c ya, Sum

There has been progress, still fighting with getting the intercooler in place.. It now sits behind my left leg.. Having enough clearance to body work and swingarm with this intercooler has been tough... Mapping out the wiring harness to send that out to Dave to get done.. As well as the mounting of all the fuel injection stuff... Still no paint yet from the intended color... Running out of time, I have moved from making it pretty mode to survival mode to get it done... But im sure the paint will get done,, then the question will be.. Will it look good in my garage or on the salt during Speedweek.

I like the black :D .  Get the other stuff done and then go back to the paint.  200+ in black would be good :!:  

You have lots to do, but it sounds like you have a plan, so I'm thinking you are going to make it.

Ask Tom Bryant about paint schemes (Mr. Flat-black and primer grey, himself) - and don't worry if yours isn't all pretty as a picture in time for the next event.

Much as I like looking at the fancy decorated race vehicles -- I'm more interested in seeing you with a 200-mph smile after a run.  Good luck and best wishes from Nancy and me.

Jon,

I'm sure you followed the discussion about motorcycle aerodynamic over the last day.

I saw now your rear end (fender).

As I remember is this bodywork above the rear wheel a open shell - in this area - see the question mark on the picture - the airflow will create his critical air cushion, due this that the air can't escape properly - the only way the air get, is downwards into the other airstream, builds a lot of turbulences and "damaged" the handling.

Best solution would be slots in the flat rear upright body panel - mean this triangle which close your fender on the end - so the air can got out of the "box" the direct way.

Just as a idea.

Ask Tom Bryant about paint schemes

Candy blue on the bottom, going over to the top in dark blue, yellow moon and stars in the upper half, the bottom get some lighter blue and creme blue waves like a beach coast line......... :D

So the kids on the salt got also something interest to see.... :P

bbb,

We made and developing the turbo system....

yes that is a AIM MXL Dash unit.. Very slick unit..
I like the alarm function outputs, and shift lights, and very bright display to glance at... End of runs or datalogging you have all kinds of interpolated data, caparisions, etc etc...
