Looking great, Rick. What glue are you using for your aluminum body panels? Any recommendations?

Thanks, Chuck. I'm using Loctite Power Grab Ultimate, which says it works on aluminum. I discovered it when I was remodeling my bathroom. It's an experiment. We'll see how well it works. All the panels have a secondary methods of attachment, like screws or tabs bent over.

So Rick, did you hollow out a female die to pound your "Speed Blisters" into?Brian

I used plywood forms. You cut the desired shape out of the center of two pieces of 3/4 plywood and sandwich the aluminum between them. Then hammer away until you get the shape you want. Take it out and touch it up with a hammer and dolly. I learned it by watching a youtube video.

That's clever. It's like the simple forms used for plastic windscreen bubbles, only with a hammer instead of heat and airgun. Looking great.

Very nice work. I do like the speed blisters and how you made them.

Thanks, Mark. I thought about using the same technique for a couple of scoops on the rear bodywork for brake cooling and intake air.

Do you like the torsion bar front suspension? It looks great!
