    Just my dumb question of the day(so far)will the wood be removed after the body is built?

    No, my friend. The wood will stay as the structure for the metal body. Thanks!

    Kept looking at them and couldn't figure out if they were MGTD's that someone had reworked the front fenders on. Now I know. Everything in your shop is just way too cool both O/T and off. Thanks for taking the time to keep us in the loop.

    Can’t wait to see what you have planed for the big, long, flowing, musical, exhaust. Both pipes on passenger side? I think there may still be room up front for two Potvin little helpers

    The Potvin style blower is a great idea!

    The hood will be some 60 inches from the radiator shell to the firewall.

    To bad Brooklands is not around; it would be a perfect venue for this car.

  19. PURE INSPIRATION from vision to present status - so very grateful there are craftsmen such as yourselves willing to share with a bunch of mud-slinging mere mortals, such as I. Glorious!

    As an aside, here is a Jacket I had made when I had my Seagrave. I took a digital picture of the radiator emblem on the truck and took it to the embroidery place. They loaded the picture and emailed it to some place in Taiwan. They got back a program to load into their embroidery machine and a list of what color threads to mount on the spindles and then let it go. The first try wasn't quite right color-wise, but the second try was spot on. I had two jackets and two sweatshirts made before I ran out of money.:eek: IMG_1663.JPG

    I picture those separate adjustable race windshields of 20s Bentley’s, Bugatti’s, and such.
