Bodywork

We are lucky to have Emilio, an experienced auto restorer, as part of our team. This scuffed up plastic toy car from the recycling center is going to have a full paint job. Last night he did the prep and priming.

Progress on the Race Car

Every meeting we get a couple hours farther along with the project.


The frame and basic power system are in place. Now it's a matter of many small tasks:
removing unnecessary plastic 

drilling mounting holes

stripping rust
replacing a temporary hose clamp...

...with a stronger steel band
considering a sewing machine foot pedal
Getting closer!
