Sid I bleed more out of my legs now---my depth precption is lousy with these blended trifocals my shins look like I have been wading in the briar patch.  Rex  I tried to feed by hammer but it only resulted in a big blood blister in the web of my left hand.  cheers

Francis is supposed to come up tomorrow and we will fit the wing--most of the sheet metal rework is now done on the back of the car---will be much easier to go through inspection.   Still have lots to do including installing the 2.26 gears in the 8.8  picts to come

My oldest son was by Sat. and we worked on adapting and installing a converter harvest out of an old rv to charge the battery bank when the generator is running.  He was passing through town on his way to CA for official FRA bus.

Sumner and Dottie are in town ,to be present to Kathy who fell and wrecked  a knee, and he came over yesterday to assist with SHEET METAL-- are scheduled to bang some more-- some day this week. It sure helps when you have assistance, with this kind of stuff.  Thanks to all who have helped.

Woody---sorta--kinda-- is correct-- but I didn't have the $3000 to do the exhaust you cleaned it up with---so I  went with individual stacks the engine simulator program liked so much.

 If it looks like we may have a racing surface in the future AND I get some more loose change I will engage you to design a more aero intake system.   I am exploring the rear diffuser but wanted to run with the axle fairings first.


Thanks Rex---the exhaust may prompt a new name for Ms Liberty ---maybe -- Starship Liberty

Rex-- I hope the individual stacks also change the exhaust note---I hope it will not sound JUST like another high hp roadster going down the track

This has been discussed before  I think  but


I am unhappy with the weather strip tape that I have for a canopy seal.

Is there some gasket in a tube that does not cure as hard as the ultra seal type?
