Ha haaa... kids always have their phone in their hand... even in the tub!
LIKIN' that Cad!
Goofing off at school with that one. Then all the Covid crap hit.
We’ll still have it in storage.
Hope to dig it out soon
Mocked and mocked some more, charity build project!
More "just hurry up and get to me" than mock up!
Looks a really cool pit crew.
Some Bolts More Loose Than Others...
Still working on this one
What? No bungee cords?
Every Thursday night starting at 5:00 we all try to beat the poor fiberglass into submission, wait, you're not supposed to hit fiberglass with hammers? That explains alot!
Current mocked up status of my coupe.
James, That is going to be cool as hell! But there is a voice in my head that sounds like Jeff Foxworthy saying " Hold my beer and watch this"! lol Have fun and a post a video of you and Jackson's dragster going at it! Larry
I think traditional is something called baling wire or binder twine.
I actually have a roll of that laying around. Used to keep it in an OT truck for emergency exhaust hanger repairs...often...
how I bought it 40 years ago.
Add said “needs finishing”………..
rear end was held in place by 20mm x 20mm x 1.5mm box section steel.
Sorting out linkage, horizontal to vertical to horizontal, fun!
This has been my preoccupation for a while. Had the body off while I attempted to sort out the suspension and swap in a 401; put it back on yesterday for a bit to figure out where I'm at. I know I'm a bit crazy for trying to cram a clutch pedal in something I already have to drive in a fetal position, but I'm going to make the attempt... (I do have a switchpitch in the shed just in case). Mockups can be almost as discouraging as they are encouraging when you see your list growing like a Hydra instead of shrinking. But it's cool seeing things take shape and what all else I want to do to push it forward. Critiques of construction are welcome... I won't take offense. I'd rather fix it now than on the side of the road.
