Those of you who suspected today’s Name That Part was LeMon-flavored were correct, and commenter “Tiller” was more correcter than most, as (s)he called it perfectly: “Der UberBird’s wing, shot from below”. Tonight we’re putting some more finishing touches on our be-winged and be-noseconed steed, then hitting the road headed north. Hit the jump for more shots of the complete (minus paint) wing.
As for comments regarding weld quality, keep in mind this is 20ga sheet metal,which is the welding equivalent of an annoying shower temp knob: the line between too cold (booger welds) and too hot (burn though) is as thin as, well, 20ga sheet metal. That, and this is my first real foray into welding sheet metal; the better looking welds came later in the process. Lastly: it’s LeMons.
We’ll be on the road tomorrow, hitting the track on Friday for inspection and a oh crap what just broke practice day. The good news is Saturday and Sunday are supposed to be mid-50s and clear. The bad news is Friday it’ll be mid-40s and raining.
Thunderhill has wifi, so we’ll do our best to keep the posts coming as things progress. Then again with might be too busy fixing some stupid over-engineered German part racing to hit the keyboard.
