I thought the business in NASCAR town would be hopping after the carnage of Talladega. I guess there are more powder coating shops than required.

Anyone notice that the cot(car of tomorrow) tend to fly when they get backwards and the wing creates lift not down force.

I think That's why they got rid of it. But never officially said (from what I've seen).

NASCAR wings on COT,,,I would agree and that is why I never liked the wing...  my thoughts are wings help you fly,, spoilers spoil lift.. hmm except when you go backwards,, but yes backwards wings still help you fly and spoilers still seemed to spoil lift.

Man it was hot here today... 89 degrees... seemed hotter in the sun when Joe and I loaded the chassis to transport back to Larry's shop.  Did not get any work done other than getting the chassis back in Larry's shop and unloading all the interior sheetmetal.

Here are pics from today
























If I can stand the heat tomorrow (Larry's shop is not air conditioned) it is supposed to be 90 degrees.  I plan to get all the suspension on and wheels and tires and have it rolling tomorrow. (not sure if I will have any help, may be a one man show tomorrow...Hope Joe can pitch in for 5 or 6 hours,, that should give us enough time to get done)

Thanks,, It came out nice, I would have liked a deeper darker red, this has a hint or orange in it,, but looks good, looks more red when around the black body.

Well,,, more work ahead.

Thanks Tony, we try hard to do good work.  I hope it looks good when all back together.

It looked ok in my mind when I dreamed up the project (with help from Joe,, he has a warped mind like me too)
