That's the weird part, I usually don't. I generally put my mind in the gutter on purpose, so I know where to find it. :roll:

Not sure what happened there. :?

There was a loony tunes (40s or so) vibe going on in the back of my mind at the time though (no idea where it came from either, Darn that Tex Avery anyway  :-P  :-D ).
Just happy to be here. :-D

The first foto shows the area of the air brake. This is the left side of the car. The shiny piece to  the right of the fasteners is the piece that Hume was forming  with the hammer in a recent post.You can see the longitudinal arm of the air brake inside the slot. Since that does not conform to the external shape of the skin, it requires an additional aluminum piece be fabricated and attached to the arm. The wooden piece that Hume is holding shows the location and shape. The last shot is of the right side of the car with the additional wooden sample in place.

A panel that had been attached to the car for a long time was removed and I found this shot available.

I changed images tonight. This is sharper.

These are the final attachments to the air brake: upper and side wings. These will be finished flush with the outer skin and attached with countersunk stainless steel screws. In order to remove the air brake, the attachments have to be removed.

Freud, I seem to recall Marlo telling me that the air brakes could/would be deployed in stages. Can you confirm that?

Thanks

It's an all or nothing deal. There is an air cylinder that activates the blades and I can't imagine a slow release cycle. When they are used I can imagine there are a few other happenings to attend to also.

If I'm incorrect, I'll post the correct answer as soon as I talk to Hume.

I was just informed that it will be deployed in 2 stages.

The first stage will have 3" of travel on the pneumatic cylinder and the second stage will fully extend to a 6" excursion.

It will be deployed by a switch on the steering wheel.

Dyno, thanks for asking. I too learned something.

  This waiting for Marlo's car and the new Herbert car as well as the numerous others that are under construction is killing me. Well not literally. But I wish they'd get in gear!!!!

When you put all the air brake panels together it somewhat resembles a Model A grille shell.  Hmmmm

I am starting a new diary for Marlo's Streamliner.

The problems related to page 23 seem unsolvable.

The first post will be tonight, Tuesday, July 21.

It will be named TREITS STREAMLINER.

Thanks for the interest.

I had the privilege to see this work of art while in Seattle last week thanks to Freud, I took some pics, none as nice as Freud's, and none that could really show you just how cool this car is.  I have seen a lot of nicely built airplanes, nice cars and race cars, but this one is not easy to classify.... It is art, it is craftsmanship, it is awesome, not just a little awesome... jaw dropping awesome. 

So instead of a car picture, here is one of Freud and Hume.... and my friend Allyn checking out the canopy frame... I might post another picture or two after I catch up with my reading... 6 pages of unread.... y'all been busy...
