Stainless- how long is the scoop and rectangular to round adapter? if that is a full sheet 4x8 plywood it is sitting on looks to be close to 48" total with maybe 60% being the NACA part/

Do you anticipate being ready for this year?

Jack, the opening for the scoop is about 18 inches... the transition duct is about 8 inches...

I think we will be ready for SpeedWeek... I'm entered.  :cheers:

Good luck on completion Bob....Maybe you should take El Kabong with you and bury him in a place of honor?
I`d never advocate drugs,alcohol,violence or insanity to anyone...But they work for me.

Dang Jerry, he's only injured... not dead...  well ok, he is a dead blow... but he really has been assigned light duty tapping the draw bar on the mill when I change tools... a job he volunteered for rather than go on disability and unemployment.... he's a trooper  :friday

keep moving... the scoop panel has now been marked for the cut out and mounting rivets... next up, chop into the panel. 

Been working others stuff too, emergency chute release... have a plan and half the parts made.
Steering wheel wiring... in work
Battery cables, determined lengths and routing, going to the battery cable store soon.
