Hi all. Been a long time. Notice a few changes to the site. Nice. Well, work is done and my vacation has steered. I was fortunate enough to have met someone who came highly recommend to help me finish the body on the car. Today is the first day I’ve been on the car in nearly a year but with Ivan’s skill and pace we will have lots to show you in the days to come. Plan is to have the quarters finally mounted tomorrow after all this time and have the body in primer by weeks end.

Instead of working on the car this summer I spent every free weekend enjoying our new hobby with my kids. It’s actually the best way I’ve found to get serious quality time/fun with my kids and to rage out on speed and lateral g’s. Enough to fracture my rib lol. When you throw a kart around and get thrown around in a kart you really don’t feel the urge to drive anything but cruising speeds on the street. Makes for a calmer driver in me.

All the old paint has been cut off the car. Housing for the lower driving lights have been grafted in below the front bumper. Ivan is forming my chin spoiler out of one piece of aluminum, one side at a time. Here 16 hours yesterday. Today looks like a repeat. Done by midnight.

Also cut out the rear diffuser openings so we don’t have a parachute effect happening on the highway.

Thanks guys. Rear quarters permanently mounted and left to cure over night. Tomorrow we hit the body work hard. Still on schedule for primer by Sunday barring no surprises.

Thanks guys. From this to that in 6 days. If I wasn’t there matching my new friends minute for minute I wouldn’t believe it was possible. Taking a short break while They both go back to their day jobs. More to come.

So I’ve pondered at least 5 or more colours but the one I chose wasn’t even one of them. Hopefully it’s on soon. I’m open for business on the 22 of January and I’m hopeful it’s done before that. I need to have all things having to do with dust and solvents over with or my waterbase finishes on my entry doors will be compromised.

Pegasus is white with grey stripes. Foose did pewter and charcoal and there was one at the locale MOTERAMA SHOW that was orange. I can’t do any of those colours.

don't want you to spoil the final assembly or colour, enjoying each new episode of your very impressive progress!

For now, I'm wondering what's the plan for the openings (door/quarters)... some extension/scoop added that will link the bottom door line to the shape? Some graphics added in the last 2 inches under it?

For the exhaust, some wide aluminum rectangular pipes???

Don't answer! I'm just very curious and will have to wait next episode to be wowed once more :))
