Had to take some wind wings down to Greg today. As always, I noticed a few interesting things. I liked the band coupling on the exhaust better than the three bolt arrangement I had on my Speedster. Much easier getting the muffler off to adjust the valves. Don't know what this engine was going in but I really liked the color arrangement ! They had a near complete Spyder frame on the building Jig. The front hood hinge is a site to behold and works really well ! A pic of the classic rear suspension on a Spyder and finally, Greg taking a finished car out for a little test run.
The latest news is that both Greg and I have given up on getting anyone to build a new front suspension on my build so we agreed to proceed with a std ball joint front beam with a rack and pinion steering box. Having decided this, he said he would start on my build during the Christmas/Holidaze season. I will be leaving for Mexico again next week and won't return until March. A friend of mine will be living here in our home while we are gone so he will be able to ship any of my products while I'm away.
I know a few of you were following my build specifically because of the new front suspension I wished to have. I'm disappointed as well. It has been a long wait and I have missed out on a lot of west coast activities during the wait but I think it was worth giving it a chance to come to reality. Maybe next time ? Car ?....Bruce
