Carolina Carport showed up this morning at 8am with my new Streamliner shelter.
The car was built at the Carbinite shop but we have been so busy over there that there is no room for it. So I have been keeping and working on the car back at the house. With the new shelter it will be a bit easier to quit in the evenings as I don't have to make everything waterproof.
It took four workers just 2.5 hours to build it. We probably had 15 hours preparing the site. Team member Ted Wolf brought his bull dozer and it was a real blessing as there was much more dirt that needed moved than we imagined. Bulldozers are cool!!!

Also got the electric trailer tongue jack installed and sent chutes back to DJ to have tow lines shortened by 10ft each. Hopefully it will be much less challenging to stuff them back in their boxes. The primary box is plenty large. In fact, we will need a stuffer in there like a towel or something to take up the extra room to preload the drogue a bit more but the secondary is the challenging chute to load. I think once it gets any salt on it, even though it will be washed, it may never go back in.

Rob, that shelter is awesome.
It's all class!!!!

I love the way it all goes together.

That system would make big bucks here.

A special car needs a classy shelter like that.

Your operation is very professional. cheers cheers cheers

Rob, if you need to shorten your tube for a better fit a piece of hard insulating foam glued in the back will help.  Hopefully your primary and secondary have different line lengths.

I think DJ made the primary and secondary the same length. I will check on that. I would think it would be a bit better if primary was a bit longer.

Fairings finally approaching completion. It was a much bigger job than I anticipated. Then again there were eight of them.
Just need a few hours bodywork and we can cross this one off the list.

Also we cut in an ice hole for loading ice without taking entire engine cover off.
It is still attached with (10) 10-32 screws as it is structural.

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.
