yeah we need some updates here for sure . . . Al should remind me once in a while . . . lol . . . ohhh she's coming along Winters not even here yet but its coming to . . . . some updates for the snowy days on the way

All those pieces a few pages back are all glassed in and final faired. The dash is pretty cool and with the center mounted helm reminds me a lot of the Starship Enterprise . . . lots of room for LOTS of gauges

Also did a mock up for a windshield riser that i had in mind to get rid of the old flat one to also allow the seats/helm to be moved inboard. Along with the riser we decided to open up the vents and do away with the louvers,

made a mold off the mock up to allow me to make a large fairing section, I feel its better in the long run doing it like this because it provides a better final part even though its a one time use mold. I call the process "quick an dirty" molding, its a bit more up front effort but the final part is cleaner and easier to adapt then any free lofted part.

some initial fitting of the finished part, Fits good and has a good arc side to side. This part was made about six inches taller the the final shape/heighth will be. This is done so the bottom edge where the windscreen is going to sit is a prefect fit also provides a nice lip for it all to attach to. . . . When the windscreen is on it will kinda flow with/around that pod in the center of the dash top. . . .
