Ah, they almost have a "cast" look to them. Well done!
yea after the were machined I sanded them smooth then sand blasted them for a cast finish
working on getting the seat built
With sitting all the way in the back over the rear axle, and needing your arms to stay inside of the cage area. The steering needed to come way back to the driver. The problem with all of that is the steering then gets in the way of exiting the car. So I designed a tilt Column that allows 12 inches of the column to tilt up to allow the driver to exit easier. I still need to add the gas cylinders to push the column to the up position, and the down / drive position lock. Very pleased with the way it turned out. I will try to figure out how to post a video of it working from my phone. If I can’t I will snap some more pics tomorrow
All I can say is I'm very impressed. The mechanics of this are beautiful.
Very nice Sir.This just better all the time.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
Looking Great Mike! Thanks for all of the updates.

A few pics of it on the salt. Had a handful of inspectors look over the car and everything looks good so far
This is such an awesome build! Definitely enjoyed seeing it at Detroit this year! Looking forward to see the rest of the build!
