  1. With the carbon fiber parts that I have had experience with (Drag Cars), it's not that the paint is transparent and you can see the carbon through the paint, but it's the fact that carbon has a texture that shows up. It's the fact that the surface that is painted has a weave texture that shows through the paint. Unless there is a lot of sanding and blocking, then it becomes invisible because the surface is smooth. This is my experience with race cars, no experience at all with exotics.
  2. Crown Vic police cars in the background.
  3. the cure for extra weight......more boost !!
  4. Well....I installed mounts for the passenger seat, but the seat hasn't made it into the car yet !
  5. Nope, haven't abandoned it, just very busy at the shop (I own a chassis and fab shop) I found a very nice resin Coyote on eBay from Outlaw Speed Shop. It came with a stock intake, Boss 302, and a Whipple. Coyotes are pricey, I picked up one out of a supercharged Roush Mustang with one burnt piston. It's being sleeved now.
  6. not much progress, mini tubs finished, 25.5 cage need to finish door bars. Too busy working on full size stuff. Sold motor out of 1.1 car, putting a turbo Coyote in it, so I have to start on a Coyote for the model too.
  7. Finally got a chance to work a little on the Mustang, got some of the 25.5 cage finished
  8. Wow, that cage has some big, nasty looking welds on it !!
