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?

Sparky, take look at high temp door seals. They are easy to mount and generally made of Nomex.

Just make sure all of those header fairings are inside the inner plane of the rear wheels or you could get tossed into streamliner because of it. There was a belly tank Lakester that had its record pulled at El Mirage a few years back because a fairing at the front of the car was a tiny bit too wide. It appeared fine and was inside the front wheel plane but the rear track was a tiny bit narrower than the front track.

JR529,
Thanks for that info, my son and I are adding some aero appendages to the axles on our lakester this year and I will make sure that we check which axle has the narrowest inter wheel dimension. We have plenty of flexibility in the rear but not in the front. Thanks again!

That is in the rule book but I know of a couple of lakesters that have tripped over that one with a front to rear track difference.

Sparky, having bodywork outside the line won't put you in streamliner, but it will make your lakester illegal.  Pipes past are OK... streamlining bodywork around those pipes... not so much....
Sawsall fixes everything... if required  cheers

Not if they work and stand up--Lots of the wood has doublers through bolted and bridging across the open part that will have a cover
