Yes, it is possible to study and become a master of Pintosophy.. Not a religion , nothing less than a life quest for non conformity and rational thought. What Horse did you ride in on?

Well, the glass work slowed me down on the HANTO but I see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's starting to look like a race car. Getting closer to paint. A lot of hours went into fiberglass body panel fit. The front air dam went on last evening after work but still needs a little adjustment and some support bracing. I had to cut 3/4 of an inch out of the center to make it fit. The rear spoiler has about a 1/2 inch ADDED to make it fit flush end to end. Every piece of fiberglass had to have some type of major work but I am just about there. Dearborn or bust!

Thanks, got it covered. I also want to fab some bumper brackets out of aluminum as the originals weight a ton. My mantra is: "if you want to go fast, add lightness"

Hi bbobcat75,

I did not end up using the one I got from you. I bought a larger one and figured bigger was better for most of the smaller (slower) twisty tracks I race on.

I got some important things done since my last post that I can check off my list getting ready for Dearborn in July. I finished all the mounting points for the Lexan windows. A big job to get everything flush with all the compound angles of the window frames. The headlight buckets are one of the worst aerodynamic features of the car as they trap air like little parachutes causing a lot of drag at higher speeds. I decided why fight it when I can take advantage of the pressurized air to cool the brakes (plus less dust up high). So here's my solution. I used hot water heater vent hoods (Home Depot) and plastic 3 inch, 60 degree bend air intake piping (Kragen Auto). I topped it off with motorcycle headlight rock guards. I will be running 3 inch brake cooling hose to a housing that encloses most of the brake rotor.
