It’s a happy day when you first get it on the road. And the wheels don’t fall off! spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Also nice to share it with so many.

A little more done.
All those wood strips kicked my butt, seems like it took forever.

Yes, those strips are a big job! I spent about a week of evenings building my tail section.
But it looks like you could still make bring it in primer, unless you're like me and refuse to show an
unfinished car.

I'm going to try and get it glassed tomorrow afternoon after my dentist app.
I will have the tail section on for show at Slyme Dawg but I don't think I'll have it finished enough to run with it on.
The car will show up with bodywork unfinished and no paint (naked), just fiberglass finish.

You wouldn't be the first, at either venue.

Tail cut and fit.
I've had these scoops laying around for years and thinking of cutting them down to fit. They should get plenty of air to the engine for those hot days.

Well, you're right about having to trim them down a bit.



S'all for now!

Just be very aware, everyone, that bare resin and glass (epoxy or “ester”) are NOT UV resistant, and they WILL break down in sunlight.

So?

So, don’t leave “naked” fiberglass work in the sun too long.

Allen, your car’s body looks great! I simply cannot wait to see it I made paint. It looks so,close to the inspiration car.

Well done.

Peace,
Robert

Thank you for the sun and resin warning, I wasn't aware of that. Now I have to paint it soon.
Used Bondo to hold the scoops in place and radius the perimeter and glassed in place.
The scoops are on and ready to hit the track.
Slyme Dawg here I come smiling bouncing smiley

It won’t turn to dust right away! Haha. You can surely buzz around for a while, and even Slyme it up, with naked resin, as long as it’s stored out of the sun.

But, it will eventually break down under the UV light. You could just slather some primer on for the testing phase, too. Or, just keep it covered when not in use until painted. And don’t wait too long to paint, and risk all your hard work.

I hope it is everything you have been planning it to be, and three times more fun. smiling smiley

Peace,
Robert
