Haven't posted lately.... so here is some of the stuff I've been working on.  Have the shifter squared away, figured out where everything for it will go. 
I rerouted the cooling water hose to not run under the chain like it did with the original. 
Yes that's a chain... it is easier to work everything with the chain first.... then I will look at doing the belt if I have time.  Right now I will be impressed if I'm ready in August  undecided

Thanks guys... it is a build diary after all  cheers

So along with all the little other things going on with the car (like tab making) we are actually thinking about putting a body on it...  rolleyes  Pork Pie has been doing a little drawing work in CATIA and from that he developed step data... something we can use to CNC mill foam for nose, top and canopy building.  Johnboy has a guy at his work that can take that and pop out a PDF... So we are looking at what we need for body...  Of course Pork Pie is in Germany, Johnboy in Colorado and I'm in Kansas so the process is almost seamless  rolleyes  
Based on a bunch of pictures of the old car, Pork Pie drew this up for the new one... produced data... it was converted to PDF and on page 2 we have a couple of slices of the cross section.  Then my frequent helper Ross (MC2032) printed out the cross sections full size, mounted them on 1/8 inch plywood and cut them out.  The plan was to see if the body would fit over the cage and engine.  
As it turns out, AA is about 7 inches behind the front of the cage, BB is ahead of the Engine and CC is over the engine.  
As it turned out, AA did not quite fit over the cage, BB fit the cage fine, but was a little short so it needed to be cut to 1/8 past the red line.  CC is too large... we will not need that much room around the engine.
Pork Pie will be adjusting and we will make some more templates to ensure they clear everything.  
If none of this makes sense... I've had a few so  cheers

We've been working on top and canopy shape as well as everything else that needs to be done.  Thinking about how I'm doing the lower firewall... want to make it removable, but also well sealed...

Got the hinge for the canopy tacked in... cant reach that end of the car with the TIG, so tack was done with the MIG... it seems to be really good for tacks.
