Pat K worked on the removable apron, max traxs and spare tire holder etc. Peet worked on engine tin, he’ll paint it up tomorrow.  6D0C4622-0713-4AF2-8F5C-797CBE2D615EI cut a hole in the hood and extended the filler tube to stick just out enough to get your hands on the cap. Franz welded up some rad stuff as always. 72F5A958-BBBF-4D02-9758-81C25F5EB0CELike franz said, LOTS of momentum. Fun to have everyone working on the same car

    HA! From time to time. You like my britches? Pants feel too “offical” for me.

    Walking around on concrete all day is killer. Thin sole shoes promote healthy muscles. I’ve tried boots, but they feel like 20 pound boulders on each foot.

    I do! I like the thought of the coolness of shorts with the upper leg coverage of jeans but the shoes look like funnels for particulate. Far as style goes the black socks really complete the look.:)

    Somebody needs to make a shoe with built in socks. Like a shoe-boot without laces.

    Pat is fitting original stale air 40 horse fan shroud with reinforced coil mounting spot and tack welded fins. Matt trax  mounted with a loop on one end and a pin on the other. Easy removal from the codriver’s side.

    Knocking it out. Trying to do all the welding and fab. Kendall and I rolled the front fenders yesterday afternoon. We got a little more clearance….but nothing like the Robert Johnson’s or Perry’s front fenders.

    Does anybody have one or more baja champion wheels they could part with? Like the front wheel in the picture above.

    I was going to ask the same in regards to all the mudwork on the fenders and such….isn’t this thing going to get beat to hell from the word “go?”  I thought these race cars were 20 footers when it came to finishes?

    Dash layout and mounting is a chore that Peet is handling.  Notice the yellow lever. Its a front brake proportioning valve. I’ll allow us to decrease the front brake pressure to avoid locking the front wheel and loosing direction control.
