Dave... . Your work is always impressive. You are starting to be like me and redoing parts huh.... Lol It does suck to have to fix mistakes but the parts tend to be better than before. I know that one all too well lol. those inner calipers are so impressive. You have to be the master at machining because they are each done by hand and look perfect. I can not wait to see all the parts together. They are going to look killer.
Tim.... Your updates are so impressive. You are one hellofa builder that's for sure and I have to agree with John about this being the badest build around. It's so impressive the detail that you put into this. I can't get over the fact that your parts are way smaller than the parts on my funny car. It truly blows me away. Nice job.
Brad.... You are welcome. I will actually be getting some bench time on Sunday. I am actually at my parents visiting for Thanksgiving. I can't wait to get some bench time and get the rest of the part designed for this build. Scott... Thanks brother. I have some pretty cool things coming up to do for this build. I can' wait.
John... My brother... That mock up looks great!! I can't believe it is ready for find sanding and paint already. I am totally looking forward to seeing what you do with a paint job. I know you will kill it any ideas on the color?
Mike.... Thank you! You are right this thing won't build its self. Wish it would... Lol John... Thanks brother!. Dave.... Me too... Real soo they will be parts I am working on some other items at the moment. Tim... As I mentioned before I wanted to update them so they would print correct and I need to reprint an injector hat because the one I have is missing some holes. I really want the parts correct where I am happy with them Clayton.... Thank you. It feels good to be back at this one. Brad... Thank you. I also redid the blower pulleys because my 3D models did not match the actual parts. Art.... thanks brother... You do no know how bad I want to finish this build. And see it completed because I have some other cool builds I want to start. John.... No need to be sorry. I have been happy to help you out. Danno.... I was planning on going to Good guys but ended going to visit my parents. I would love to be where your pic is and wish I could blame a woman but I can't....lol
Hello All... I first want to address the reason for the redesign of the blower and injector hat. Then I will respond to each of you. First I wanted to say that when I originally designed these parts I had all of the bolt holes drawn up to .016" and there were a few spots where the holes didn't print. Because I didn't know the limits of how small I could go with the holes. So my fix for this was to open up all of the holes to .020". My intention was to have them printed smaller and then open them up with my pin vise and drill bits. Second..... I drew these up on my work laptop which has a newer version of Solidworks on it. Well I wanted to be able to open these files on my version at home and since it's an older version, it won't open up newer versions. So I decided to redraw them on the version I have. Also I want these parts to print correctly prior to making these available on shapeways. I am working on some other parts at the moment so I can have them printed at the same time.
