Well,  I jsut spent the last two hours p-u-l-l-i-n-g the frt skin over the drivers area----YEAH---it is difficult to pull on---but it self aligns and looks like it will have virtually no GAPS-- one of my lousy welds popped while I was pulling it on with two ratchet straps.

This post s seems so trivial but the way the body jumped around once I cut it when Summner was here.  I have been very concerned that it might not align back up. No one else was around for me to celebrate with----so you guys are the victims!!!

Now I should be able to take the frame back out side and prime this thing then install the fuel bay skin PERMATELY and start final assemby and make this building a car LOOK like it.

TMAN   I  have built  "noodle" Bell cranks to try push or pull --- I am THINKING I am going to have the primary be a rod that pushes but the seconday is on the side I get out on so for clearance reasons I may pull---once I make a final decison I will try to do something that looks nicer.

I am just thinking a rod will be the smoothest way in mine. Slide rod forward if the air fails.

Likewise Frankie

Well I was going to order my transition 45 deg  but they have stoped making them  they are NO longer in the exhasut business so I resorted to ordering some 7 deg. cones  from Cone engineering and some 45 deg 2.25 45 deg bends from Hooker they are on back order but they are 16 guage.  Thanks to Contrivance Eng. and my crusing the internet for WWII fighter inspriations the P-40s and Supermarine Spitfires for my exhaust noodle prompts.  Dr GAS used to offer 2.25" tubing to 1 5/8" x 3.5" 45 deg. transitions---no more.  Plan is to cut and modify the & deg 2" to 4"  cones to look similiar to those.

Bill, Burns stainless has a ton of exhaust stuff, both stainless and regular steel. You might look at what they have, if you already haven't.

Joey is back in town from his Alaska fishing adventure.

I was able to help a guy get his twin turbo blow through set up  ironed out---he had built the HAT with an inlet on either side of a circle and it didnt blow straight at each other---they we causing a very active tornado inside the hat--- a baffle on each side  at 90 deg to air flow stopped the vortex
