"Hospital ambulance white" is a good color.  It is easy to spot cracks.

Johnny Benson Sr. used to paint his late model racecar frames silver...made crack spotting easy AND gave competitors fits because it looked like aluminum cheers

Forgive me, Rob -- maybe it's the cold that I'm just finally finishing, but when I saw the photos just now -- and looked at the first one -- I sat there trying to figure out just what the heck configuration you were running.  There were parts everywhere, going all the wrong ways.

Then I put on my glasses. rolleyes

Thanks for the shots of the car un-done.  It's good to see what you've done in there.

Hopefully going to the sandblaster on Friday.
Can't find any cracks in any of the welds so far.
Plenty of souvenirs from Bonnieville and area 52. Gosh darn it, every surface we run on is corrosive. We need a new hobby.
Big debate amongst the team members on what color to paint the chassis. Definitely  not going to be bright orange.

Hey whats wrong with bright orange??

We settled on Caterpillar yellow. Just like the label of the Fireball whiskey. Fireball whiskey itself is close to the color of the car. Maybe they would want to sponsor? I'll have to do up a rendering with their label on the car.
Maybe we could get some of our money back or at least a few years supply.

Contact Tech in rulebook, they can make you a replacement sticker... although yours looks pretty good and easy to mask off. 
Your new one may not look as good...  cheers

My body work will also be Yellow because I won more races on my Suzuki RM125 than I did in karts or F2 combined.
It's my lucky colour, my race suit is Yellow and three of my bigger sponsors have yellow as their background colour.
No brainer.
I think your chassis would look great in Yellow. cheers cheers

I also won a few races on my 1981 RM 125. First year for water cooling and full floater suspension. 204 lbs, payed $1440. I can't remember what I had for breakfast but I can remember this stuff. Go figure.

Rob,
I love your Solid Works drawing of your car as it shows so much of the great engineering that you and your crew have put into it. Everyone should note the linkage over the rear axle that is used to set the angle of the flaps for down force vs ground speed and also the three "beams" that are used to carry the aero down force loads from the wings to the chassis and the effort that you have gone to to package the proverbial 10 lbs of $hit in the 5 lb bag. Thank you for sharing with us.
