A sequel to my previous thread "Crappy pic of a Half Built Horn."

I haven't done the wetsand/polish of the clear coat yet but it is shinier in real life than in the pictures.

Actually, I quite like it as-is. I remember seeing a black Audi S8 (the original rolling thunder) come off a delivery transporter to a dealership in Kent. The paint had been covered with a kind of protective wax for the journey that gave it a near matt finish. Easily the most ominous looking motor I've ever clapped eyes on. If it had been my car, I'd probably have begged them not to steam it off. You just know Tangerine Dream's Alpha Centuri would be the perfect thing to play in that thing.

One of my Favs. Although i am in the works designing and testing a singular passenger trike with 3 wheel steering with an AMERICAN power plant, its a great deal different than the four passenger type cars out there.

This is totally OT but i feel the need to have input.

There is no need to have 3k Lbs of weight with a 150 Lb driver. I find the current offerings of the American production to be truly lacking and totally irresponsible to perform to current demands of fuel cost.

Efficency and cost,complexity have to be considered in any product ,if its speakers or autos .sneakers or blenders ect ect it makes no difference.

Ron, is the one wheel in front or in the bacl like the old Heinkels ? My father had one back in the early 60's and loved it.
