    19 days until I have to have the car loaded for GNRS, busy times around here ! My machinist got the new ring gear mount machined, and sweated onto the 4130 CM tube. I welded it, and am cooling it slowly. Now I am going to pull the setup rear axle out of the car, so he can determine the total axle width. He will machine and install the end stubs, for me to weld. Some final machining and I can assemble the Pat Warren rear axle unit complete. IMG_2469.JPG IMG_2470.JPG IMG_2473.JPG IMG_2476.JPG

    Well, now I'm kicking myself for not getting over to your side of the hill over holiday break. I'll catch up with you soon. This has been incredible to watch my friend

    We will have them there. In the shot of the poster, that was one of the test samples, it has slight green tinge. The printer has corrected that and will move the graphics 1" to the left, for centering.

    Thanks for the kind comments, my friends ! I dug out my old louver press, that belonged to my late friend and mentor Jerry Hill, and put it to work. Quite frankly, punching louvers is not fun for me anymore, especially when doing parts you have some time in, it's nerve racking. All and all, they turned out as planned. The rear axle is getting the final machining today, I hope to be assembling the quickchange this weekend, as time is running short. More later.

    Wow! This car just keeps getting better and better! I really admire the fine work you do and can only imagine the crazy number of hours you have put into this re-creation. So glad I got to see it in person, there are so many details to admire. You are a craftsman in the truest sense of the word!
    Thanks again for the fun visit last Friday.

    Doug is right, Pat is slightly taller than me. This was taken at Pleasanton, in '98. Hope to meet you. 2012-12-14 091416.jpg
