I'm going to leave the canopy work update for a few posts. This is new info to me and so I will pass it on now and return to the canopy area later.

I have referred to the upgrade of the front drive that was being done at Mark Williams Enterprises in Louisville, Colorado.

Marlo's contact as the work progressed was through Bret Goethe. Just as in any special build, the time line was established and it had to be extended. That makes the deal a lot like Christmas. It can't get there soon enough. Christmas has arrived and the toys are loaded in the sleigh and ready to depart.

Bret sent some images ahead of the shipping. I will post them and when I go to Oregon next weekend I will get a description from Marlo and post that relative to each foto.

I will start with the new hub assembly.

So now, just like us waiting for Christmas, look at the gifts, draw your own conclusions and I will fill in with the info I get from Marlo.

Thank's for being patient.

As always, Top-notch work. Where did the steering knuckle originate? Looks industrial.  J.B.

As close as I can tell, at this time, the parts started as Ford Bronco.

I'll post a correction if I find out something different.

Take a look at the framed art work on the walls
 
One of these times, I'll do some shots of that part of Hume's shop.

Then I'll also include the ivy plant, recently pruned, that runs along the ceiling.

It's an interesting shop developed by an interesting man.

Look at post #225. The right hand side of the image is where this next change has occurred.

The two curved pieces of aluminum will be the pivot  point for the canopy. The sub frame now has

four new pieces tacked in place and those pieces will slide over the hinge.

There are holes drilled into the sub frame mounts thru which the attachment screws will pass.

First view of the inside canopy latch.

I'll explain more later. Friday I will return to Humes for a meeting between Hume, Treit and Les Davenport.

I'll have fotos from that meeting.

Answers to several questions:

A Bronco furnished the production cast front end pieces.

The windshield will be made from LEXAN.

I talked to Marlo Treit at Hume's shop this afternoon. It was a high level meeting of Treit, Les Davenport designated driver, engineering adviser and fabricator of special parts, Bob Harris, special coatings consultant, both from Calgary, Canada, Dickie Milne,  Jim Hume and newest associate at Hume's shop, Jason Hosking who brings high level fabricating skill to the project.

One of the concerns was the determining of the windshield height in the canopy and a plan for speeding up the project. 

It was an exciting afternoon for me.

Pictures will be posted soon.

Most important things first.

The gardner or the goat must have visited the ivy plant. It doesn't go along the ceiling any longer.

I'll post mechanical things this evening.

Refer to post 233. That showed the canopy support frame and the plates that bolted to the canopy hinge.

This foto shows the support bolted to the hinge.

The ball that screws on to the release handle is not attached to the 1/4 20 thread on the release. It's the same as the one that is on

the canopy release lever.

The other horizontal image is the front side of the canopy hinge and the latch. The upper horizontal bolt is the pivot point for the canopy.

For those of you who think that Jim Humes craftsmanship on Marlo's car or the fuel tanks he builds for John Force, et al, are as good as it gets, you are all wrong.  His hand carved Fabrage' egg's are worthy of any fine art museum in the world.........................as is the wind tunnel model of the car..........
