      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Nice going chepp, updates on Harry's condition are in the Lounge.

    Thanks Chuck. And I agree with Bill; too much non-aero junk on it.

    Not on my screen Chuck. Even if they're carbon rotors, nothing is visible. I get complete black between the BBS spokes in all views. No matter - it may just be screen resolution. Almost like an old fashioned flat-black metal dust cover to keep wheels clean.

    I'm wondering why the brake rotors and calipers are obscured.

    Slightly better news; a nurse has visited and done basic medical checks and an occupational therapist has visited and will return twice per week. Harry has done well with the OT.

    Bill states the situation well. Especially the 'encouragement' part. Harry seems to gain strength to continue when he hears from others about their or their family's successful battles with cancer.
    Now we all don't have such people or experience but if you do, sharing with Harry is like a road map back to wellness for him.
    Relating experience with insurance coverage (or the lack of it) and dealing with the medical personnel is also of value. How you solved those problems is an inspiration and guide book for him. Harry does not have a support staff of large family or professionals to assist him. It's a fatiguing, daunting process as much as the disease is. Daily.
    If you prefer to not post publicly here, it's fine to PM him. As Bill says, he may look in on us but seldom feels well enough to interact and respond or post updates to his Fund.
    Let's try to be his family and advisory group to support his fight. Harry's given so much of himself here, let's return the favor as best we can.

    Harry is still at home and trying to get in-home therapy insurance coverage. . He has started a new chemo program and is adjusting to its effects. He continues to have eating issues which contribute to his weakened state.
    His struggle continues.

    This may be the largest impediment to Harry's ability to fight this thing. I wish we, with experience in these matters were in proximity to him and could fight these battles for him. The burden of trying it alone is as fatiguing for him as the cancer and weakened heart.
    I forgot to mention earlier, Harry's connected to web again. But he's far too tired daily to get on the forum or even answer the many emails that have accumulated over these weeks. He's just too overwhelmed to respond. Best not to email at this time.
    But he may click on and be able to see our wishes and helpful thoughts from time to time. He is very grateful for all your generosity and well wishes. And he misses his many friends here.

    A nice thought but sadly not the case. Insurance refused to cover his rehab so he was released. 
    Make no mistake, this is still a huge struggle for Harry. Many pills to take daily, doctors to see including a chemo treatment this coming week and a meeting with a cardiologist. Plus an exercise regimen he needs to do daily to build up his very weak heart. He is trying to eat again to build strength.
    All we can do for our friend is good wishes and good prayers. We can only hope that his caretakers find the keys to turn around his life for the better.

    Lights and horns in place...

    Harry was discharged from rehab facility yesterday and is back home alone, with visits from family members.

    Thanks Eric. Final result won't be until early spring because that's 'painting' weather'.
    But I plan to make a backdrop for photos, case and maybe document in book form, so work for it will continue.  And I won't drag you all through construction of those things.  Another model is doubtful just now.

    Most likely yes because it's a fragile piece. You don't want to handle the whole car or use tools near it at this stage. The car is very heavy.

    Michael's right but I don't know if that was his son's laptop. I will try to find out later in the week. Certainly we'd rather he use his new enthusiasm for food and exercise rather than surfing the web.

    More small progress...
    I decided to move on and permanently mount the front fenders so the hoods could be fitted. First they needed the headlights and horns. I found I was missing the two plastic horn bodies seen in Koo's CD, so had to scratch build two. These are Model Motorcars lights, cut 5mm lower:




    I now have the ride height and tire gap I have been working towards:
