That car is beautiful! When I saw it 3 years ago I was amazed by the technical aspects... now that it's coming together it's taken on the form of a piece of art, almost like a sculpture. All I can say is... Beautiful.
 Freud... after reading your description I've decided to take the afternoon off. Jeeze I hope my wife isn't having tea with the Minister, and his Wife again wink

This is the support piece for the area of the air brake. It will keep the shape of the piece immediately behind the mounted air

brake. It's only purpose is to make certan that the inside panel is tight against the outer skin.  To remove the brake, this

piece will need to be removed. The plywood is the buck that gives the exact size and curves to support the panel. The

hammer is adding curve. The one side matches the buck but more work is needed to have both sides in the proper shape.

Jason Hosking is working the panel that's the next to last panel for the tail.

The standard that they decided on was no paint and no filler. Every panel as close to perfect as possible.

I think Marlo will be with me at Speedweek 2009, but we will be leaving the car at Hume's shop.

We don't know where we will be daily on the salt but we will be at the 6 for the week.

You are all invited.  I will also be at Salt Talks, pimpin' for the 50/50 at Salt Talks Sunday night.

When Marlo had the new front end at his shop, he opened it up to be familiar with what was inside. It's easier to get introduced to it in the cool of the shop than in the heat of the salt environment.

I have posted several other shots of the internal components, but this shot, that he did, is new to me.

It shows the pinion support that was attached to the added side plate.

Yes, I can see that he had not retightened one bolt before he did the foto.

I now believe in reincarnation. Michelangelo Buonarroti is reborn and building race cars in Oregon. The Sistine Chapel was just a warmup to test his patience. Bravo Gentlemen. Among the finest ever...    cheers   LSL

Err, yeah, in re-reading that I see that I se it could be taken in several ways.

I meant it in the:

'My Grandma, what big eyes you got' sense (you know little red riding hood, just a bit of humor  smiley ).



Regardless, thatnks for the pics and updates.

Erik, I thank you.  I never thought of it the way you suggested in your later post.  Ah, wouldn't it be wonderful to have a completely innocent mind?  I wonder if I ever did. . .
