My test pilot

I spent a lot of today scouring parts suppliers for all the many things I’m going to need, and making a list of all the multitude of tasks on the Sterling. I think Nefarious is going to do her summer visit with her mother soon, which will give me the opportunity to do fabrication work without worrying about poisoning her with the fumes. I feel pretty committed to doing a one-piece wrap-around interior, which is going to mean a few very smelly days as I do the fiberglass work (I’ll build it in foam and wood and then fiberglass over top of that buck.

The visibility inside the car is a little frightening — even though the window is quite large, being as raked back as it is, you actually are only looking out of a very thin slot. To say nothing of the non-existent rear visibility! I think I will certainly be building in a rear-view camera system, and perhaps proximity sensors on the front and rear as well for convenience — especially since I have no plans of building ungainly bumpers.


Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
