    Got the body back from the body shop since they bonded and molded in the helmet cowling and roughed in body. It will go back after speed week for finish work and color DC72E64A-1F75-4D4D-B4A1-9402F8506B7D.jpeg 2AD236E5-5B4F-480D-BB35-776D1E0413C6.jpeg 7EAA65FF-8089-4D14-BA96-E7393F49057A.jpeg 95EB6B5C-93C4-492C-AD06-C60255AC9C45.jpeg

    Working on getting lines all made and hooked up, while waiting on parts. Getting a few things checked off the list each day. 6F77F7C9-CE32-4E50-89FA-3500B4B01771.jpeg 34114A9B-4297-4109-8738-350E767837CC.jpeg 9EF5D9B3-56F8-4D40-8D45-356C7021F22E.jpeg 6C88DDB0-1317-46FE-8EAA-BDAEBB4601A0.jpeg 584C9FCD-5C8E-484E-B48E-93F1486D416D.jpeg

    It's a shame to hide all that beautiful pipe and hose work under a body. Maybe a clear perspex body might be the go? :D

    Wow - it turned out beautifully.
    Congratulations.
    Nice paint and graphics won't make it any faster but I'm looking forward to seeing the final product all dolled up.

    I’m thinking that everything is just tacked up right now, and you’re going to have it inspected and then any changes needed will be done before final welding? I hauled my first sad attempt to ElMirage for the same reason back in 2009. Let’s just say my presentation wasn’t as nice as this one! But I did learn a bunch from doing it, so it’s all good.

    Its a little more than just tacked up. All systems are installed and function, plumbed, wired, ect. Some major drive line parts were not going to come in in time so i didnt rush to finish all welding, paint and powder coat. Even though i am a tech inspector i want the other guys to look it over and make sure i didnt get blind to any problem areas

    Saw the car on Friday, wow! What a piece of automotive art! 208DF75D-4BA7-4433-A604-A43F7E5316C2.jpeg I saw it again on Sunday……

    Bare metal and salt water not good! I’m sure Mike can fix it all, but it was deep out there. All I had to rescue was my trailer I haul my Samurai in and then use as a pit platform for shade and radios and the BBQ. Coming out the salt tater chips beat the fenders back almost into the trailer tires!

    Hope to see everyone back next year cuz Bonneville is the Best Place on Earth!

    wow
    bummer
    I am heartbroken to see your car inundated by the brackish water. I hope you can get it all cleaned and preserved before any serious damage is done. I know this is not the same tragedy as receiving grave news about a loved one, but a true work of art needs to be preserved and curated. Good luck.

    Did the tech folks give it their blessing? Were there any issues with making it OK to race?
