Ray Therat has posted the second edition of his trip to Hume's following the Bonneville NW Reunion.

He raised up to eye level and snapped away.

This is the direct link to his post:

Ray and Dave have a heart to heart.

The second person recognized in the Unsung Hero portion of www.target550.com  is Marlo's longtime friend, Captain Cress Baxter.

Read how the relationship developed and what an influence it had on Marlo's life.

Great read. Sets the background for the build. Thanks.

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.

Be patient viewers. My tail is draggin' from 2 weeks of being drug thru the dung backwards.

Our post may not be until late Friday.

Marlo goes out of town and the kids forget the time line.

Ray Therat didn't create the holdup.

Following this outstanding build and live documentary here isn't a right, it's a privilege thus no condition, apart of the ones you put on yourself, could be put on you in my opinion. I'm greatful for any crum that fall of the table... :cheers:

Let's also not overlook the fact that Freud hasn't been feeling all that great himself and is usin some new and unfamiliar software.  I think he deserves a little consideration in this respect.

We'll get some new stuff out on Friday, but it prolly won't be the very first thing in the morning.

We humble servants of the Gods of Speed await the next missive from on high.

Grumbly and impatient, but we wait.

As the next piece is crafted and fabricated and installed we all lean a little closer listening in the distance for that crisp sound of a blown motor firing up.
Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.
It's bigger than life or death! It's RACING.

Now that I have looked at the baby hummingbirds, www.phoebeallens.com, looked at the prices for the Charlie Sheen appearance at Comcast Arena in

Everett, $50-$500 and must be 18 years old, dried the Compact Flash card that went through the washing machine, sniffed the new gardenia blossom in the bedroom, groomed our Persian cat and

rearranged my neck ties according to color and descending length, I can consider doing the post.

Frank Martinez brought his demo piece for the underbody wheel fairings. I'll show that piece and explain what's great about

it.

Go back to the post from 01-08-2011, 087-007 for the review.

It's surprising what extent they pursue to make the new piece "just right."

There will be a short interruption while I go eat the Portabella Mushroom Omelette that Doris made for me. She only cooks this

special treat on the Friday before full moon in the month of the Spring Equal Nockers.

I asked Ray Therat to develop a computer program that would include the fragrance of the Gardenia in a foto. He is having trouble.

 The gardenia makes him sneeze so this will be just the image.

I'll get started on the post soon.

Thanks for not shouting at me.

The post for this week is done. It drops back to my last post and finishes off the oil system plumbing

and then transitions to the Kevlar pieces under the car for the streamlining around the wheels.

So far only the fronts have been addressed. Hume is working on the rear fairings and it will be a while before they

are completed.

Frank Martinez is a well qualified builder and I look forward to the follow up to this post regarding the replaceable parts.

Friday turned into Saturday. There is still another post regarding the pans and it may be posted before next Friday.

This shoot has been over at least 2 months and sorting out the images turned out to be a bigger chore than I anticipated.

I hope you enjoy it.
