Dummy build now completed, We had to lengthen both lower arms as the we had way to much negative camber but we shall modify our jigs so when I have broke these ones we can make arms the correct length. Carbs are on, steering column routing has been sorted out. All that really has to be made now apart from the bodywork are brackets for the fuel tank and oil cooler also to plate under the seat to protect my ass from the prop. All going well and will require our 2 tea bitches Benny and Ell's on saturday morning for paint touch ups and graphics

Excuse the Jennets technical slip, that should have read 'too much positive camber' not negative camber......................... Basketball Grasshopper you will learn

Been hard at it again today sorting out the pedals and what they need to be doing. All brake pipes are now run and connected up and have replaced all the wheel studs as a few were a little suspect so I have put some longer ones in to allow for some better wheels for next year. The bodywork has been started also tonight with benny and sean the janner ginger biscuit getting stuck in. It looks like benny is getting a promotion from brew bitch to floor sweeper after today whilst janner sean gets apprentice brew bitch with Ell's moving up to graphics and design co-ordinator. Anyway a few pics from today.

Fran's helpful input: Dear Mr Dawson, I have been looking through these photos and finding them VERY interesting. However I would like to point out one problem with the stock car...it has a flat rear left.
