What did you use to pin the removable top portion of the driveshaft safety loop?

I'm sorry to see/hear about what happened to your bottom panel, Chris.  Like all of you have said, I wouldn't have supposed it would have done that.  Changing gears, to the subject of degreasing or cleaning, Chief Joseph told me that the FUD material can be soaked in acetone to remove the wax that is left on the surface after the printing process.  I have tried it, and it does seem to work.  I didn't leave my parts in for an extended time, probably no more than an hour, but it seems to have worked well.  Donilee and I are both interested in history and the sinking of the Titanic.  That lower panel sort of reminds me of what the surface of the steel plate on the Titanic looks like after having been submerged for 100 years at the bottom of the Atlantic...  I'm sure you'll be able to make the replacement fit as well as the original, but I understand the frustration.

That Mooneyham logo printed into the face of  your blower just boggles my mind.  Near perfection, my friend!!!

Nice update, Chris.  That level of detail on such a small part will really enhance the overall finish of your engine (and total build).

I have 1/16th rubber, contemporary Pro Mod sized slicks and Goodyear Frontrunner-styled fronts if you're interested.  They may or may not represent the vintage you're looking for, but thought I'd tell you about them, anyway.  They're both designed to work with MicroNitro-produced wheels.  Here is the link to them.




If you want other pics of them, let me know.
