Salt, this thread remains active. Ray and I post on here whenever we add to www.target550.com.

I have been able to post more fotos on target550.com, easier than on here because of the size and number limit.

SSS has been so receptive and we appreciate it. Jon Amo started out first diary a long time ago and I feel that we

owe Landracing.com a major THANK YOU. In return, our other posts are always announced on Landracing.com.

I know that we are small as far as some of the diaries but it does keep SSS's site slightly smaller.

SIZE DOES COUNT.

To everyone that has followed this build for a long time, trust me. The end is in sight. It will be finished in a reasonable time and

when it is, we will keep everyone informed. With Jason and Dave contributing progress is doing well.

Marlo is as interested in seeing this completed as much as ANYONE.  So, hang in there with the project. It will be exciting

as the next year passes.  We do have some surprises in store..........I promise.

For Marlo, Hume, Jason and Dave,

Thanks for taking the ride with us.

Another Friday and another post.

I was just told by Ray Therat that we have new fotos and info posted on www.target550.com

One of the huge parts of this build is the tail section skin. Jason Hosking has turned the corner

and is now working on the right side of the car. The left is done, except riveting the skin,

and he is now finishing the right side. Dave Jeffers has finished the blower belt shields.

Welcome and THANKS for your support.

Freud,

Can you provide more info on the line building.  What line components are being  used for the steel lines?  Square cut sleeve on the ends, assembly tools, etc.  Perhaps a manufacturers website.

Thanks,

Geo

Ever go to a movie and get a surprise sneak preview?

That's happened this week.  We are presenting a small post in the middle of the week.

I mentioned recently that it would be enjoyable to have more than one post a week.

This is our first time.  Maybe you can remember another first time.

You will have to pay attention because I never know what day we will have a post but you can always

expect a Friday or Saturday entry.

For the entire crew I say "Thanks for your interest."

If you are going to World Finals, have a blast and stay dry.

Geo.......Thanks for the question.

All of the lines are 3/16 stainless with, as I remember, 0.035" wall.  From what I saw, the ends are flared. Jim has a tubing holder

attached to a large vertical log. When the tubing is cut to length he uses a tapered tool and cleans and bevels the inside of the

tube. Then he clamps it in the holder and flares the end with a tool similar to a copper tube flaring tool. He hopes he remembered

to slip the fitting on first.

Just today I shot some images of the finished and mounted tubing for the air shifters and the fire suppression system. These images

will be included in post number 64.

Your question has just suggested to me that I do a video regarding the tubing. I have excellent access to Jim Hume but I will wait

until a time when I'm not making a huge interruption in his day. Then after it is filmed I'll have to get someone to help me with the

editing of the video. My grand daughter, Rose Halcomb, did the Hume interviews for me but she is in college in Spokane, WA and I am in

Everett. This will be a good reason to go see her.

Thanks for the question because I need to add something extra to the site.  How about if I promise it in the next month?

Will that sooth your savage desire?

Thanks to all of you for your interest and your patience as I plod along, guided by Ray Therat, web elf, and Marlo Treit, the purveyor of the unusual.

Geo, check your PM.

FREUD

Folks, I have been posting in the Build Diary section for over 3 years.

It has been most enjoyable. The interest in Treit's streamliner is very high.

www.Target550.com  has had just short of  one and a half MILLION hits since  January.

The number of posts has slowed down on www.Landracing.com because I just can't satisfy two

lovers.

This is not about Target550.com or The Treit Streamliner thread on Landracing.com.

I want to congratulate a pair of privateers who feed us with regularity.

John and Troy Langlo     ji222 and bvilllercr on the site:

Getting ready for Bonneville(rebuild)

Recently they have been awarded a secure listing at the TOP OF THE BUILD DIARY. How does this happen?

With 133059 views they had passed a very deserving DrGoggle and his Down Under lakester post.

I know what it takes to feed your voracious appetites regarding people with accomplishments and the patience to do the fotos, the post

and also the preparation of a d a m n e d fast race car.

All I can say is, Folks, enjoy their post. Read with understanding, appreciate their multi level talents and express your sincere congratulations

to a family team that tells us of their successes and their problems with all honesty.

There are no 6 figure sponsorships adding to their program. This is down and dirty racing with results that are always just a red puttsen hare

short of their goals but they comeback with confidence and determination that examplifies Hot Rodding at the 2010 level and it's all

accomplished by the sacrifices from their immediate family. 

When u are on the salt, stop by and Thank them for me. They are at a level beyond most racers dreams.

John and Troy..........I Love you, I respect you and I congratulate you.

Go "get 'em next time."  300 MPH in the first mile, in third gear.

My assurance; Dan will never find the beer in the intercooler because it will be gone before you get to impound.

We will replenish your needs at The Kilo Club.

This message is for   FLOYDJER

If you can get accepted  for Public Health intervention, they can register you in an

ANGER MANAGEMENT Program at Public Expense.

Your machinery may be old enough to be in the Antique Registry and protecting it

from your violence could well be in the pubic interest.

Take your medicine and don't drive at night.

It's OK to work on your car when you are buzzed but if the build diary sets you off,

read about Lindsay Lohan and then you will have a legitimate reason to get violent.

Even a female judge would understand that.

PRAY FOR GOOD SALT.

Doc,

Numbers are interesting, and can tell different stories depending on how you use them. For pure views you are 100% correct.

Now if you take into consideration how may posts have been made on each build diary things change considerably. Every time someone posts on a build diary people will naturally see what they have to say and what is new. So more posts equal more views usually.

Here are the results for views divided by posts.

Langlo's have 96.46 views per post.

Doc Googles have 101.97 view per post.

Combining your two build diary's you have 122.62 views per post.

Just an observation.

Tom G.
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.

looking at the bigger picture of the starter
button in target550.com has got me thinking a lot
of small parts could end up inside the engine.

maybe not.

Rest easy franey..........

I did this foto Tuesday. Dave won't have to hold it when they start the engine. The welds are strong.

They lucked out when they chose that mounting position.

It would be difficult for that piece to get to the outside of the body and thru the duct into the blower.

If it went in the engine, it's a small piece and Jim could easily make a new one.

The hole is for an oil gage. Even if they can't hear the engine running they can see if it has oil pressure.

In this case it's better to be lucky than misguided.

Freud,
     My guess is that Franey thinks that is an assembled runner of an engine that the dish full of FOD is sitting on.
