John,

That half door is a great idea and the extra room will make it more comfortable. The 20 inch step over isn't much at all. I am really going to be looking forward to the pictures when you have everything finished.

Ron

How about a GrandSport edition? Door cutouts and "rocket fuel" gas cap added.

Thank you Buzz! What you are able to do is amazing.

While in the mock up stage I played with both a single and double head fairing. At the time my seating position was higher. The combination of that, the short rear deck and the angle of the deck resulted in the head fairing (s) looking a little too tall. IMO. Now with the lower seating position I think it would look good. A cut down windshield would look good with the head fairing.

Since this car is not a replica I think that it could be finished many different ways. I can see my self spending my free time developing different trim pieces. Head fairings, spoilers, vents, a targa, a Coupe, etc. I'm starting off with a simple, plain version. I think the car looks good enough without the add ons to stand on its own.

I'm excited by the possibilities. Having fun.

Yep - that it most certainly does! Couldn't help having a bit of fun with it though.

Slow week working on the car. It's freezing cold in the Adirondacks!

I spent 4 hours just on the side pipe mounting brackets. Very frustrating.

I weighed the car this morning. I have racing scales to do that with. It's at 1624lbs right now. This includes: frame, body, windshield, seats, seat belts, pedals, complete drive train, starter, driveshaft, complete suspension, rotors, brake calipers, pads, shocks/springs, steering, e brake, shifter, headers, side pipes, radiator, fan, radiator hoses, alternator, carb, fuel pump, fuel tank, wheels/tires, fuel tank, fuel pump.

What it needs: aluminum skins to close in the frame, fuel lines/fittings, brake lines/fittings, fluids, upholstery, sun visors, heater/defroster, windshield wiper system, lights, gauges, switches, paint, wiring.
