Charles,

     Sometimes when you have to back up a bit you wind up with a much better run on the hill......... Keep the faith.

     Take care and enjoy the weekend.

I took a needed day off from both my real job and the Stude build today. I Left the house around 8:15am and arrived at Maxton about 10:30am.  I was expecting it to be much hotter than it was,,, off and on cloud cover and a slight breeze kept temps around 83 degrees until about 2:30 or so.. 

Being a spectator was OK, I had time to drive my cart around and visit will all my LSR and LR.com friends..It was fun BUT...
I sure wish the Stude would have been done as the lines moved very fast and well organized. 

I hope you all have good weather again tomorrow,,, maybe a few more records will fall in the cooler morning air.

Have Fun, Go Fast, Be Safe

Charles

Any test drive under 100mph would be a waste of time!   :mrgreen:

OBTW: Looking forward to seeing the finished car.

I agree,,,, I have access ( at times) to a 5000 foor runway,,, that gives me 1/2 run and 1/2 mile to stop,,, would think 125 mph is safe in that area,,, for a few shakedowns...

Joe,,

Thanks for the heads up... Chutes are not new to me,,, just have never used one in LSR.. last I used chutes was drag racing in the 80's and early 90's....  I am sure pulling a chute in an LSR car is alot differant.... you can bet I will practice my procedures and build up in 20 to 25 mph increments with it. 

See you in 3 weeks or so..

A few more progress pictures.

Scallops taped up and ready to spray.



Finished and drying  --- I do not have a good enough eye or steady enough hand to do the white outlining of the Scallops,, a pinstripper is coming Tuesday to do that for me...





Fire Bottles


Yes, I can do detail work too !!!  LOL




Well Me and Larry are taking tomorrow off and going to the Heavy Metal Rebel and Rat Rod Show tomorrow, I was going to drive the Vicky, but with that containment seat, I can not see beside or behind me very well,,, so I am taking the 38 Dodge Old Skool Shop Truck..

Everyone have a SAFE and HAPPY 4th of July Holiday !!!

Fabulous Charles!

Never thought they would catch you working  :evil:  Must have gotten some tape on the bottom of your shoes to slow you down!

Can't wait to hear  how she drives.  And then how  fast you go!
