One of the things we need to fix was the air intake.  If you look closely you can see some delamination between the fiberglass and the tin work.  Well we cut some of the fiberglass a while ago but now we have time to fix it.



A little duct tape around the opening(that's all we had) evil



Ready for some fiberglass resin work.  First batch dried too dam fast.

We mixed our resin in a red plastic cup and while it started to harden it was too hot to touch.  I made sure to set the cup on some metal.

 It was a cool? 90 in the shop with two big swamp coolers going and the cup did melt.

A few things that we finished on the car. 

Justin Sharp making a bushing for our clutch pedal.





Hey Justin-
Where's your safety glasses?  Looks like an OSHA infraction to me...

Nick, the funny thing is that Justin doesn't like being in pictures.  He doesn't know that this picture was taken or that it is on this forum...... not yet anyway. grin grin

We finished up the air intake today.  We just had to paint the inside to make it look a little more presentable. 



We also had some time to clean the outside of the car and wax it, hopefully it will stay clean all the way to the great white dyno. cheers



We are so close to being ready, I will post some more tomorrow.  Time for bed.   cheers

Hope all goes well at B'ville guys,Streamliners , Lakesters , Belly Tanks etc , are all Waaaay Kooool !! But a 300 mph Doorslammer is TOTALLY F#%&@' AWESOME!!!!!! (I've only got 204 out of mine so far,and hold the DLRA C/GCC record at that speed).
Push it till it goes Bang,Hope you make 300.
 Keep an eye out for our Aussie entrant,Norm Harding in a '34 ford Roadster.A few of our guys will be there.
All the best from down under,(wish i was there to see that 302???mph),but someone has to stay behind to keep the country going.
 Cheers , Bob.

Bob, nice looking doorslammer!!

Yesterday was a mile stone for us, we got a lot done.  The truck is loaded!!





We even got our scooters loaded, they match the color of our car and one has our 222 number on it.



Hell, we even got the car loaded up!!!  Can't believe we are ready so early, feels great.



Now we just have to buy a new shade tarp, those little bungy cords thingies with the ball attached(anyone know where they can be bought), load the battery charger and one more battery and make sure we don't forget the computer and video equipment.  Fwheeeeewwww.  Lets go racing!!!!

Thanks for the photo of the back of your truck.  I don't feel so bad about how much we cram in there.  But -- this year we've had Todd and Debbie on our side -- so I'll have to post some photos of how they took care of our trailer for us.  SWEET!!!  I'm thinking of asking Atlas Van Lines if they need some stuff hauled out west - we've got that much room.  Well, okay, maybe not that much. . .

See you on the Salt!
