Hello,

Everything is just about done, at least what I need to run this beast at Muscoda. Hopefully out for a test run this weekend, keeping my fingers crossed for no issues. Now i am going through the whole thing changing bolts and added lock nuts. Needs some paint in a few places also.

Very Spartan dash as not much time for additions. Really wanted a radio, tiny tach, maybe oil pressure. That stuff can wait for a bit yet. I would like to get some running lights installed on the front.

My custom made exhaust, muffler and all. Could be a bit quieter but it's ok.

This needs to be placed on the back in front of the engine, thought it would be a nice addition and add some protection against flying debris.

Here is the 72" prop I carved to spin on this critter. I really fought with getting it balanced enough to run with the light weight drive setup. In the end I added some supports and another upright to the stand since it shook to much. Now it spins up pretty smooth!

Spent some time today getting a few things done. Painted the floor for one. Got the boards installed on the back and painted hull numbers on. Did a number of smaller projects also but those are boring and not noticeable :-)

Tomorrow I will build a light weight pallet type structure for the fuel tank and battery to sit on. No, the fuel tank is not the spaghetti sauce jar!!!
