Christmas came early

I wasn’t expecting this until tomorrow or Monday, but having it now is still good. “This” is my stuff I bought with my part of the stimulus check. And this is a picture of “This”.
big boxes, what could be in them?

Boxes usually have things in them, and while the one box was mostly empty space there was something interesting in there making the space “mostly” and not “entirely” empty.
The yellow on the screen is much brighter than the yellow in person, think School Bus rather than raincoat

There was also a T-shirt in the smaller box with the roll of fender material. And yes those are actual catalog numbers in that graphic.
the graphic is an homage to the model car kits we used to build as kids too young to work on real cars

There is also a roll of HDPE sheet in yellow but that was visually uninteresting so no picture. You’ll see it when I show the stages of building the fenders.

Speaking of the fenders, I have finalized the design for the rear fenders, but building them will have to wait until I get the frame built. That’s because I don’t know how much rear overhang I have yet until I get the rear axle and the fuel cell or tank I’m using. I’m pretty sure I’m using this fuel cell or this same capacity fuel cell . Those are just for driving around between races but this cell is for racing with. The big tank gets pump gas, the little tank gets E85 and a more aggressive tune on the controller to make full use of the octane and charge cooling effect of the fuel.

I’m about to mock up the radiator and use that to mock up the nose to the right width. That means I’m going to cut some two by fours and nail them up in a rectangle the size of the radiator and use that to figure out how much to cut from either side of the center part of the nose. I’m going to do woodwork, pray for my survival. 😂
