Awesome work GOO.
I've updated my build blog again - some of it you've seen already from the sneak peaks, but I've now wrapped the exhaust, started on the bonnet hinge, and sorted out the wing stays.
What a great day. The 2009 British GP, a new series of Top Gear and an update on this blog... sweet.
Wasn't the result I was hoping for, But Seb winning was nice (especially as he is my #2 driver in the work F1 sweepstakes).
Anyhoo - After watching the GP, I decided to start fitting the bonnets - cutting everything by hand to ensure accuracy sounded such a good idea at the begining - I mean, it's only aluminium - how hard can it be?
Took me all afternoon just to do one side, and I was completely wiped out afterwards.
Great job man, nice tires.
I really must stop giving you these sneak peeks. You'll start expecting them.
very nice and impressive
I haven't followed your project much, but have you decided on a color yet ?
I had thought black, but I'm now thinking British Racing Green.
.... But... just like the batmobile, the goomobile needs to be black too!
Either british racing green or black would be nice especially if it's metallic
Peninsula (Brewster) Green would be pretty neat
I thought you were going for white when I first saw the panels but then I realized thet weren't finished GOO White is the new black for cars this year you know ^^
This is looking more and more impressive every time you post something new. My hat's off to you for this, it's truly the best car build log I have ever seen, and looks like it is going to be an absolutely stunning machine when it is done (Which doesn't seem that far off from where I'm sitting... what else have you got to do?)
+rep for a truly epic thread on an awesome car!
Other side of the bonnet,
All the indicators,
Finish the wiring loom,
And that's not an exhaustive list!
You want more bolts? I've got more bolts!
How many of them are there? 39 on each side - so 78 in total... overkill yes, but it looks cool. Just imagine them all polished along with the hinge (as they're all stainless so they'll take a nice shine) against nice dark BRG paint.
I just wish Marlin would hurry up and send my bonnet catches - I don't think the masking tape does the car justice.
Needs more supercharger.
Fixed that for you.
Good work GOO
Looking good again GOO. It's getting to look like it's ready for the road soon!
Thanks guys. I fitted the fuel filler cap over the weekend, so the tank is sealed properly. I'm toying with the idea of fitting the wheels back on, bunging some cusions in the drivers side so I don't slide backwards along the floor and taking a pootle round the block - just to make sure everythings working, of course...
Goo had the day off today. Goo went shopping....
Ummm. New Rubber!
I also finished off painting the wingstays, the stay mounting plates, the A pillar mounting plates, the door spacers, some nut plates I made that will be used to mount the rear wings, and the headlight brackets I made earlier in the week.
Its going to be a busy weekend!
How much did the rubber set you back? I'm guessing about £60/corner + VAT + fitting? Can't quite tell what wheel size you have though.
