This is where we are now.  The car is ready for the track, except for a few very small details.   Hopefully, I’ll get it out on to the track  in mid March for some testing.   I have the time blocked off, we’ll see what the weather is.

For street use, I need to add headlights, a windshield, and a windshield wiper.   Headlights are easy.  But I’ll have to fabricate the windshield frame, and then have a DoT windshield made for it.

This is the basic frame we started with. Painted with Rustoleum.
