If the panels are going to come on and off I would use camlocks.  I get mine from Coast Fabrication and they have just about any grip length you would ever need.  Get there catalog, its free and is handy for all the measurements and diagrams in it. http://www.coastfab.com/hardware.html  Tony

These guys got the floating nutplates I've been looking for. Thanks Tony.
Spruce probably has them but I did not see them on their website.

They are great to work with and helped me many times over the years, plus they have done their share of LSR stuff.  Tony

GEEZE it is easy to understand why there are so many unfinished bucket list cars--

-when you get down to the BRACKETT racing ---one spends long days in the shop and you end up putting more things on the list than you mark off!!  I cut the nose off have the car on the floor have a pretty good idea what the panel in frt of the axle will look like now---need to go get a grease pencil to mark the panels then---put new consumables in the plasma cutter hold my breath and ---

I'm not a race car fabricator Sparky; I drink rum rather than beer but if you cover the commute I'll be there Wink.

Any pics happening?

Jon, might be worth it then we could introduce you to TEQUILA  cheers

Had what seems like a strange day--parts arived by BROWN Santa---camlocks ---thanks Tony  bought a bunch of strange semingly non related parts---we have got to take on the CANOPY--- Marty and I went round-an-round he won--we will use a piano hinge anget after this one way or another-- the nose finally told me what it wants to see-- I THINK--- Marty brought by the side panels---the found a soft ware site that let them define the shape of the "SWOOSH" that will be inserted into the cyl. shape of the body---

Francis fro Oro Vally is bringing up the intake scoop for fitting---can't wait to see his effforts---

Marty told me I better get going with the camera---as the build was becoming BOOOOOORIINNNNGGGGG

Hang a flag & flashing lights on Terry's suggestion Sparky. I'd be a candidate if I wasn't already 24/7-ing my own life. Hear I am heading to bed at 3am.

next project the dreaded canopy---  Andy gave me grief over the 2x4 and Marty went palistic---that is a pal who goes ballistic on his buddy giving him BIG # 2 over something

---he didn't like me using emt even for concept visiualition---it will be done in alum.  Well everyones mind works differently and mine needs help

Some SR citizen chick one of my wifes friends--called me a 70 year old juvenile the other day--now I KNOW that was ment as a compliment

Andy and I stuck the eng in getting ready for Francis and his contribution to the Wild Weasel---the air intake scoop

Marty talked me into just buying another rolled hoop rather than welding up the old parts----

Francis brought up the scoop---he did a fine job with the fiberglass fabrication  he took the carb and the plate back to finish it--sorry guys I did not run and grab the camera.  Marty and Tom brought over the " Baloney slices" and we spent a lot of time noodling out the best way to mount the things---
