    Could be on the alum powdercoat,,,,just never asked. I will try to ask when I pick them up.
    I think they (jugs) were all original equipment, but I was willing to polish them,,,,,,but the wife might not agree with me offering such modifications

    Really nicely done.
    I had to start way back and re read this entire post.
    Good post and well done.

    You never did say what caused your power loss from it stalling on takes off?
    How did you solve that?
    And how did the new sprocket work?

    The car looks fast and thats sitting still in the photos.
    Nicely done.

    Good luck on the rest of the seasons racing.




    Oh and on aluminum powder coaters will sand blast it to
    rough it up to stick or I should say atleast thats what our powder coater
    does.

    Gman,
    No plans yet. I have 2D prints about 70% complete, but not sure if I want to go that route or not. It would end up being a book when done. *I have the whole design in 3D cad, but I always keep coming up with small improvements, so it is easier to keep the 3D design current and keep improving the buggy.
    About the cheapest thing I can do is a chassis, and all the machined components, and then let the customer take over to complete the buggy and buy all the purchased components. *

    My powder coat place said all they do is an acid wash to the aluminum panels. *I have them back and they are sweet.
    They have prisim flake or halographic flake in them,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,so they are black, but then change colors in the sunlight, red, blue, green, it keeps changing as you walk around it.

    I have to wait for a sunny day to take some more pics

    Also posted in the I 96 test & tune thread, here is some video from the 1/4 mile track we were at last weekend

    New powder coated panels are on, and the vinyl graphics.
    I pretty much *have the same thing as the show panels. *The show panels were clear lexan and the new ones are powder coated aluminum.

    You can't see it well in most of the pics, but there is halographic or prisim flake in the black. *Changes colors in the sunlight when you walk around it.

    Dan has new panels and graphics on his as well *(orange & white)

    Duanes is done , except for the numbers or graphics. *He got to test drive it around the track this past Saturday. Everything is working well on it,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and he has a really big smile on his face
