and Jack are doing the final fit on the rear undertray.
has already rebuilt the tray.
must fit together.
is finalizing the fuel tank.
front of the tank is done and is now being fit for the rear.
must check to make sure all the suspension parts and the tail
fit before they are installed.
is drilling a hole for the brake line or a brake hose.
making the nose ducts, thanks to Robert Hatchman. He made these
molds when he restored Frank Gallogly's 906.
made flanges so the ducts are two piece. The mold is waxed,
clayed, and now I'm spraying PVA as a mold release. This release
is water soluble so taking the part off is easy if the surface
is a better view.
is a brake duct that Robert just made for us because he couldn't
find the original one.
made flanges for the ducts out of .063 aluminum.
use clay on the back side to hold the flange in place.
the PVA is dry, I use cabosil for the flanges.
the cabosil is finished, I paint the duct with a coat of resin
before applying 1 1/2 oz layer matt and one layer of 4 oz cloth.
paint, gray hair, oh well!!
I saturate the matt pretty good
and then let the cloth soak up the resin. This makes for a stronger
I just brush the glass to the wet part.
you end up with this.
three are finished on one side and tomorrow morning I'll finish
the other side. I will glue the halves together around lunch
time and install them in the car before I go home. Wednesday,
the car goes into the booth for final paint.
