You ain't kidding! Weld flash is very painful! I got it by accident MIG welding. Spent the next two days in bed, in the dark with my eyes closed.

I can only imagine his pain for the next few days. He looked at the glow on purpose! Then there is weld burn- happens when skin is exposed to weld arc- like sun burn- but far more intense.

I have a soft spot for chrome trimmed Euros from the late 60s to the early 80s. 


This is an outstanding preservation of an era.

Nice build!


I'd do a few things differently, however. Less stickers, painted silver, hide the shock reservoirs.

 While reading this- the first thing I thought of was data piracy. Sure you may be able to download plotting programs for a bumper filler panel for a 70s car that is often overlooked for restore. What is keeping the person that purchases that data from making more and selling it on eBay.


Copywriter law and data sharing will be hard to enforce after the parts are made.


I want someone to create a printed pet. When I see replicant organisms- that will impress me!  -- he said jokingly.


Great article- great website!

Wow! It is beautiful! Well done! Now all he has to do is put a GM LS motor in it! Just kidding!

Dudes! If you stopped to consider the profound impact the small block Chevy had on the world - there would be no votes for anything else. Unless you were brainwashed toward another marque. Yes the LS family is the absolute winner by means of brilliant cam-in-block engineering. It is an outstanding testament to new American engineering refinement. Face it - the bottom end is crazy stiff and re-enforced - and dry sump for a street car! Hells hea! The LS hasn't yet had the impact to the car hobby/motorsprts its 265-400 small block has. Sorry.

The Brooklands special - hands down!

 

While the other cars took talent or had design excellence - the roadster was built by a small group of craftsmen with unusual skill. Its just on a different level.

I had to choose an attainable car. The CRX Si. The impact that car (and the Miata) had on the US grassroots motorsports arena is huge. Sure the F40 and Countach is all about childhood dreams but cars like the CRX, civic, and Golf were already in the driveway ready to be handed down to new young drivers. I guess I'm just stuck in reality and unobtainable cars aren't in my reality.

I never tire of looking at 911 Porsches. They are timeless. When done in RWB style they are so much more unique that other Porsche tuners - it just stands out. Yea, the black /wingless is just bitchin'.

I love this car. Great build! That said - I agree with what has been said prior. Aerodynamically the car has too many things on it that will cause more drag than down force. Please study work done by land speed racers. They have gone that speed in cars more slippery with less power. Better tires tucked into the body would have been more aero-efficient as would a flatter rear spoiler instead of a wing. Like an NHRA ProStock car. Don't worry about the brakes. There is so much aero drag that once the throttle is lifted - it won't even go two miles until it's slow enough to use the brakes it has. But Man, I love this car!

Outstanding! Thank you for this article. Those Galaxies we're huge compred to the Anglias and even the Jag. Those turns looked far more challenging than some of the constant radius turns at new tracks.
