Freud,

I just tried to acess the website but nothing comes up. Is it down by chance, or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,

In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

I have also tried to access the site, but it comes up to a sales site with an alligator.

Thanks for your interest and patience.

I can only report what is provided.

Marlo has had the entire front drive redone by Williams Enterprises in Louisville, Colorado.

Just like when we work in our garage attached to our house, the completion schedule is never faster than anticipated.

Here are the recent replies from them.

Feb 12
Marlo,
 
First of all let me thank you for letting me tackle this project.  Unfortunately it hasn't come together as quickly as I had hoped and I take responsibility for that.  I have attached a few photos of the parts as they have been completed.  One thing that slowed things a bit was me going back after the initial design and adding retaining/locking features to ensure there would be no issues with loosening fasteners etc.  The last photos shows one of these features.  This part retains the alignment ball in the crowned coupler.  To keep the allen bolts from loosening a groove to install a spiral lock ring over the heads of the bolts was added to the design.  There were several other areas where I added something to lock and/or retain fasteners or parts.  We are also working on/refining the process for cutting the crowned gear.  I will continue to send photos as we get closer to completion.  Thank you for your patience and I promise the wait will be worth it.
 
Thanks again,
Bret


Feb 19
Marlo,
 
Inner and outer shafts are thru heat treat and bearing journals have been ground.  It looks like I will start assembling the first hub this afternoon.
 
I have attached a couple more photos.  These are the inner (crowned teeth) and outer shafts.  They are in heat treat as I'm writing this.  Final grinding is all that remains after heat treat.  I've got my fingers crossed that I can start assembly next week.  I have one part (spindle nut lock) at our laser cutter, should be here Mon or Tues.  I'll give you an update once I start putting everything together.
 
Bret



In my opinion, the fotos are too small to attach and show any detail.  As soon as these parts arrive, I will do the fotos and attach them to this diary.

The car is now at Hume's shop and the tail section of the body is being completed. I have some fotos to attach that were done a week ago. Between an eye surgery Wednesday and Chardonnay, the keys of this computer have apparently moved. I hope you can decipher these attachments.

THe first frame shows the frame for the skin adjacent to the drivers compartment on the left side of the car.

In the second image there are 4 tubes with white plastic bushings on each end. These are the points that will attach the panel to the car and will have sliders within them that retain the panel and will allow a quick release. All of these complicated systems are to facilitate the quick turnaround required by the FIA record rules.

My next post will show the mechanism that will accomplish the rapid panel removal if necessary.

Thanks for your patience and continued interest.

Marlo is just as anxious as anyone to complete this project, so hold your breath an keep watching.

If the delay bothers you, send money and prayers.

FREUD

If you have questions or comments, feel free to post them.

This is the project of Marlo's lifetime and I'll answer what I can and I'll get the answers from him or Hume that I can't supply.

THANKS,

Freud,

Thanks for posting the new information. Glad to see things are progressing. Tell Marlo I said Hi and that the liner looks great.

tbcworks, in the build diary thread read Getting Ready for Bonnevile.

It is an amazing story and can lend a lot of info for you.

They kept their tools in the fire for a long time and the results are beautiful.

Hume feels that he still has a year to finish his part of the car.

I am posting four fotos w/o any explanations. You can see the relationships of the parts.

In the next day or so I will do an additional post related to the clevices and the tubes that cnnect these parts to

make the attachment and release mechanism for the drivers compartment side panels.

I hope you learn something from these fotos.

I am going to the Bakersfield March Meet and the day I return I will have my second eye surgery. Don't be

surprised if my posting time line is extended.

Atticus Robertson,V,  machines the male and female clevis joints for the cockpit panel retainers. (I have no idea what tunes are on the

 I-Pod but the volume eliminates the squealing sound when the end mill runs short of lubricant.)  Both the male and female joints are

machined from the same stock stud. Multiple length threaded linkage rods will  have the finished clevices screwed in place to be

attached to the sliders.


The square hole receives a 3/8 ratchet wrench. It is inside the cockpit and acuates the bell crank that releases two retainer sliders.   

When the panel is secured in place the crank will be horizontal.

The external cockpit skins are 3003 H14. That skin is not shown in these fotos.

The aluminum ribs of the panels are 5052 H32. This material was chosen to provide strength and as much resistance to salt water as

possible. Before the inner panels are attached to the ribs, all the internal surfaces will be spray coated.
