Looks great Charles. Can't say I feel to sorry for you about the heat though...I've had to brush the snow off my car last 2 mornings.

Keep the photos in a good archive, Charles -- it'll never look that good again.  And once it's been to Bonneville -- well, you'll want to have "before" and "after" photos to give out, especially to the shop that did the work.

Sure looks nice now, though.  Good Work! wink

Gord,

If we average our two temps,, it would very comfortable weather.

SSS,

The reason we designed the car with a fully removable body was to do everything we can to make sure it stays as close as possible to new looking all the time. We also tried to make as few as possible places for salt to "hide".  I know all you salty veterans will tell me it will rust and look like crap,,, I normally defer to your age and wisdom...but not this time,,,  LOL

I read earlier in your build diary that you intended to use a truck arm suspension.
Why did you decide against it.
I am in the process of trying to decide what rear to use in my Ranchero for Bonneville in 2011 (hopefully)
The car will be street driven, and truck arms look like a good multi purpose solution.

Other Chassis parts are "Satin Black"   Rear End is two tone  Aluminum and Satin Black, Brackets on rear end housing are all Satin Black. 4 links are Red.     Up Front spindles and caliper brackets are Red, A Arms are Stainless, Rack Is Aluminum.   Firewall and Inner Fenders are Satin Black.

Interior is all Red,, Inside trunk is all Black...

This may sound all over the place,, but it comes together once numbers and lettering and logo's are painted on.

Peter,

Yes our/my first thought was to us truck arm rear suspension (due to local availability)  After some thought and mocking up, we felt the 4 Link we used would give us a lower ride height, and much more adjustability.

Yes, I see you like red frames,,,, I was wondering with your new paint scheme if you needed to change your team Name Huh

Your Team name and my paint scheme go well together...

But then again, If you weren't going to paint your bike Satin Black, with White and Red trim and a red frame... I would have used Yellow too !!!

Hope all goes well with your N20 .... see you in June

So today was not to good. Had a Doctors appointment at 9:00am, it went long because my veins or whatever kept moving everytime the nurse went to jab me with that darn GIGANTIC DULL NEEDLE,, she stabbed me 4 times before she got the darn thing right.  Did not get started till around 11:15am,, then the spindle keyway CUT the palm of my right hand, oh well then in the 90 degree heat the sweat was stinging the cut on my hand. But the work must go on.

Joe helped me get the front suspension on,, we did not put the brakes on,,, I forgot to take the caliper brackets to the powder coater.  I will stop by Monday and get a 1/2 pint of his red and Larry will do them for me.

Here are a few pics from today.



















Hope to get more done tomorrow.

Thanks Terry,  I think our attention to fit, finish and all the little details is what has caused the build to be a bit behind my original schedule.  But I sure hope that when we are done it comes out LOOKING and RUNNING as good as PLANNED.

Charles,

It's starting to look like a race car.  It's going to be a shame to cover up that chassis with a body when you're done with the mechanical stuff.  Just don't rush your assembly just to make a race date, it would be horrible if you were to overlook something and it caused a problem at the track.  Keep the pictures coming.
