Build Pictures / Cockpit, Trunk tub permanently installed
« Last post by Bob Worley on November 15, 2017, 10:17:51 pm »
Made a milestone last week:  finally riveted down the cockpit and trunk tubs, and sealed the gaps with aluminum trim.     

   

   

Tomorrow i'll apply seam sealer around the footboxes, then this weekend begin applying heat barrier on the engine side of the footboxes and firewall.

Engine/Trans final installation will soon follow!   Things are starting to come together again...

Russ, that is very admirable .. good luck to you and your family, and i'm praying for many, many years of you enjoying your dream car with your wife.

Bob,
No kid's at home anymore, no grand children yet, I'm 61 and had a kidney and pancreas transplant 10 years ago. I've got a lot of things to get done, but most likely not a enough to get it all done. I have planned this project for several years and have thought everything through at least a thousand times. The Hurricane Forum and Family have been a big help too.
Everyone has a pace they feel comfortable with and only you know what that is.  I love working on this project and I want to get it done while my Wife and I can enjoy it.
Your car is looking great.
Russ C.

Finally figured how to link video on DropBox. Here is a video of the first time loading the car on a trailer before delivering it to the body/paint shop. A little nerve racking.  ???

HM-2018 was painted Friday, 11/10. The color and white base coat and clear coat were completed all in one day.
l'm posting a few pictures of the body before sanding and polishing the clear coat begins on Monday.
