Re: 1149 Mono Replica
A quick update: no new photos, but we have made some progress on correcting the fit of the fiberglass parts to the monocoque. They've moved from the rear clip to the rocker panels, one of which was lengthened about 20mm today. Meanwhile I have been accumulating the other parts I needed (a thank-you to Brady who has been very helpful with all this- the rear louvered grilles arrived last week, and the halfshafts as well. The dash is ready for primer and paint, the rear clip about 75% there. I have several items ordered from Jay Cushman, some of which have arrived and look very good. Also a package from Andrew Booth on the way- dash vents, RV mirror, and some other odds and ends. I estimate another month or so on the body and then she'll get painted. I will post some updated photos when we vacuum all the dust up and some primer has been sprayed.
Thanks to Chuck who was kind enough for forward a copy of his RCR build log, which will be very helpful when we start the plumbing work. Also to Jay and Andy who have likewise contributed a lot of their time and information.
We have a LONG list of things to photograph and take notes about when we get to spend some time with the only original Mark I car that is local and available to me. In the meantime, I appreciate all the help I've gotten in answer to various questions. Thanks to all.
