Skin Update

Skins are cut and ready for sanding. Here are some pics of what I have done. These are just sitting in place, nothing has been attached yet. I reset my door on my frame last night as the lock washers were digging into the frame. They have been replaced with standard flat washers. I added one additional washer on the bottom of the door to raise the door slightly. It now moves with no contact to the bottom of the frame. My VHB tape is due to deliver today, so I may be able to mount the skins to the door this week.

Skins/Body update

I've been working over the last couple days on the back skins. All of my panels are cut and the back door panel has been removed from the inner layer. I test fitted the inner skins on the frame and so far - so good. Front skins need some final cleanup and then sanding and mounting.

Plan for the two weeks: Order remaining resin pieces for dome (HP's, PSI housing), Obtain Rockler bearing.

More pics to be posted soon..

Radar Eye Lens

Just a quick pic of the lens that I made from a 2 liter pop bottle. This was done about 3 weeks ago.
