Sparky, When I see them rolling around on a carpet with two nitrogen bottles, a couple straps and a come along I'll know they have entered my world.   LOL

Ray has already posted the new images on Treits car. www.target550.com

http://www.target550.com/gallery/52_the_skin_and_small_parts/index.html

For a while, there will be a lot of emphasis on the tail section skin.

We should have build fotos next week but Speed Week may be slightly different.

Thanks for your interest.

As usual I look at this build and recognize all of the engineering and design decisions that have had to be made to get to the point it is at now and all of the details that will have to be worked out in the future to get it finished and my mind is absolutely boggled!!
The drive and tenacity of the people involved with this project is unbelievable!

Once again I would like to thank Freud and Ray for their time and effort involved in bringing all of us this fantastic build. The documentation of this build is beyond what I ever imagined. I hope for everyone involved with this project, that their dream's come true. You all deserve it.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

I doubt that Humme will work with or under a target date --- I feel pretty sure it will be finished when he thinks it is

I honestly don't think that we will see this car turn a wheel in anger for at least 2-3 years. When you consider the level of craftsmanship and the amount of things to remaining to do, I think that 2-3 years could be optimistic. Once they are done with all of the fabrication and body work the car has to come completely appart and then everything is going to get painted, coated, plated or what ever coating that Hume decides the part should be covered with and then it has to be re-assembled and then wired and plumbed, and this assumes that the engine program is running in parallel with the car build. A car that is this sophistacated  and crewed by the level of people that are involved with it,  will have a very long and extensive testing period.

I am as anxious as everyone to see this car turn a wheel but when it does I know it will be right and fast.

Thanks Tom, Rex and Sparky for your replys.

The people that have the least invested in the program demand more answers than the one paying the bill.

Rex, you hit it perfectly.  It still has to come completely apart before it ever fires.

The engines are developed.  Before long they will be on the dyno but there is no need for them today.

The dummy engines are serving their purpose.

The answer when Marlo's Dreamliner will be ready to go...is the same as a Indian said to me at the Crazy Horse Monument in Dakota (when I asked him...when it will be finish)......

"it is finish..when it's finish"

Please accept my apologies.  I should have had last Friday's update posted on Friday.  Freud had the images ready for me early in the week and I'd prepared most of the web pages.  But I got caught up in the Speed Week thing and I actually forgot what day it was and then just spaced it.  So color me sun-stroked.

However, all is not lost.  I got the stuff posted tonite.  I only gave it a cursory check, so there may be an error or two.  Sitting here at Camp Rat with the wind intimating that it might send me and the tent to East Overshoe, Wyoming I finally got it done:
http://www.target550.com/gallery/53_pump_mount_steering_wheel_and_rear_skin/index.html

I'm just gonna leave it at that cuz I have another post to finish on the Speed Week thread.

Hope y'all enjoy and once again, I apologize for not having it done last Friday.
