Freud,

Do you know that the chocolate eggs that the Easter Bunny leaves goes great with Red Wine. You have a Great Easter Day also.

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.

So, are you going to change the name to Merlot Treit's Liner? :evil:

Freud,
Next time you are at the shop ask Jim what grade of plywood does he use for his bucks? It looks like marine grade, but it sure makes very clean bucks. Just wondering as some day I hope to be doing a buck for what ever I build and I am impressed with the quality of Jim's bucks.

Flattie......you are disgusting.

What would happen to the nose of the 'liner if we hit it with a full bottle of wine?

We plan to christen it with an incandescent light bulb because we aren't supposed to use them anymore.

That would be our guiding light.

Send the wine to me. I'll make certain it is used for medicinal purposes.

HAPPY EASTER to all of the people that follow this thread. We love you.

Since I will be on the road to Gas Up Friday and Ray Therat will be shooting road racers this weekend our post for this week will

be done early Friday AM.

I won't access have to the url but just go to www.target550.com for the post regarding the enclosures for the tires and wheels.

They were spun from 18 gauge stainless and it even required a special annealing step to allow the outside edges to be formed.

Next week there will be more to show about the rear wheel fairings and the plumbing for the clutch slave cyls.

See u next time and I'll try to post some images from Gas Up both Friday night and Saturday AM. Look under Upcoming Events.

I'll be in Beautiful Buellton and Ray will be in snowy Salt Lake.

I lied. Ray didn't take a nap. He did the post.

http://www.target550.com/gallery/108_tire_&_wheel_enclosures/index.html

That will lead you to this weeks post.

More wheel fairings and clutch slaves next week.

It seems to me that we will be making a post Friday.

I'm just about recovered from the Gas Up trip.

The post will involve the plumbing for the clutch slaves.

Ooooh, the clutch slaves. Will it also involve whips and chains?
Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.

No, but it will include nuts and nipples.

I hope we can keep your attention.
