Paint

Here is the car stripped with sticky paint.

We block the front so we can get it in and out of the trailer.

Ten days to go!

Hey you've gotten a lot done in a short period of time, congrats  :-).

Hope to spend some time with you and get some ideas for my car at speed week.  I got your e-mail, but I'm still in the east at Hooley's, so didn't get it answered.  Thanks for the info.  I knew about the split sprockets, but forgot.


c ya,

Sum

Maybe a dumb question - aren't you going to run roof rails?

Sum:
Thanks and I'll be looking you up on the salt to see if you still have the beard.

Tim:
All classes of "H" MS but only F and G this year, the turbo motor next.

Aircap:
Not a dumb question.....I stripped everything off the car for paint including the aluminum roof rails. (they are not needed in this class as the current record is 151 and 0 but will have them anyway).

On a second note I wanted to have all the aluminum (spills, spoiler, RR, windshield tabs, dash etc) machine turned or polished. I have the spill plates done and will post a "how to" when I get them on the car if anyone wants to know how to do it.

Here is a pic of me starting the process on one of the side spill plates, there done now and will go on the car once the paint stops smelling.
