Great trip to Hume's today except for the $124 ticket 2 miles from home.
I was going 52.8 feet per second and the limit was 36.6.

I will post several specific fotos tonight. Gotta start getting ready for the
journey to Mecca.

The model is sitting on it's custom constructed carrying case. The nose of the car
is the background. The car is so big in the shop that the only way I can get a foto
of the entire car in the frame is to use a 15mm lens on a Nikon F5. The 20 mm lens
on a Nikon D100 is like a 35mm on a film camera. These images are digital.


The exhaust pipes are double walled. The satinless outer shield had to be annealed to
be able to be bent on that radius. The inner pipes are positioned by the small pins that are
welded close to the end of the pipes. After the outer pipe was positioned, it was welded along
both sides of the splits. Then the trapazoidal piece at the very end of the pipe was welded
in place to keep the end of the weld from splitting. I didn't show the weld at the end very well.
I'll do a better image next time.


The detail of the front of the engine and the Whipple blower pulley are to show desotoman
the relationship of the blower to the front of the engine. The blower is driven off
of the back end instead of the front. Highly unconventional. Tom, Marlo will tell
you about it when he sees you. It's obvious that a lot of pieces aren't inplace.

Hume took a break and went out to feed the neighbors buffalo.

Freud,

Thanks for the picture. Sorry to hear about the ticket.

I can help you with that if you are up to it Old Man.
I never saw Vesco's Mother and Father laugh so hard as when they went for a reverse 180 with Marcia in the Rent-A-Rocket.
One the other hand, when I did it in the Packard, My Dad saw Me and almost cried.
I never saw that car again.
Oh Well.
NEXT ? wink

The canopy was standing next to the chassis. The  holes for attaching the canopy to the hinged section are at the bottom of the image. These will be apparent in a later shot.

The soft material in the curved shape is the underside support for the canopy. This will allow support w/o metal on metal. The hole in the middle of the foto is the pivot point for the canopy hinge.

The lever with the knob is the inside release for the canopy latch. The inside of the canopy matches the curve of the padding

The canopy hinge.  (This is the first image. It's out of order with the text.)

The canopy hinge installed and latched. This is the front view.

This is latched in the open position. This is the cockpit view showing the release arm and knob.

Height of the windshield insert is being discussed.The holes in the front edge of the canopy, from the previous post, are in place.

The gap is consistent around the entire fit.  It's about 0.030".

The aluminum panel between the back of the canopy and the air brake is being shaped by Atticus Robertson,V.

Thes fotos show the detail of the enclosures around the tires to keep salt from going inside the chassis and body panels.
They are spun stainless steel enclosures with suit case type clasps. There is a coating applied inside the enclosure to make it more difficult for salt to buiild up within the enclosure.

The first shot is a left side view of the canopy in place.
The hinge that was described in an earlier presentation was shot from inside the cockpit
to show it's relationship to the canopy. (Sorry for the poor image quality.)
The canopy has been split and shows the front lip that was formed as part of the
curved section and the line where it will pivot on the internal hinge.
The last shot is the formed piece that butts to the back of the canopy from the first image and covers the roll cage, back to the attachment plate for the air brake that attaches to the vertical section of the roll cage. The next presentation will show the panel that the air brake will attach to.
