Heya folks, figure I’ll dish out some updates for you on various things.
First things first, those LED taillights. I finally got around to running the circuit board on the CNC router, and despite a mishap I’ll probably be soldering those soon. The mishap may actually have been a small bit of luck. What happened was the router bit snapped off when it was cutting out the individual pieces; it’d hit on the edge of one of the screws. This may have been a good thing as it looks like the perimeter cutout path was a bit close to the actual screw holes. I’ll end up using the already cut out boards as a template when it comes to that, and cut / sand them to shape.
Next up, the chassis. I won’t be moving the chassis indoors just yet as we’ve got another couple weekends worth of garage work to do, and may need to move the Barracuda out of the way. That being said, I’ve started doing some really rough mock-ups in Solidworks off of the measurements I was able to get this past weekend. I need to get access to the Solstice chassis as well at this point for rear end and steering / suspension measurements.
Also in regards to the MogRod, I’ve talked / interviewed with Mog Magazine recently and should be getting an article about the MogRod in the near future. Definitely looking forward to that!
And now, the big news. As of yesterday, I now have a deposit placed for a 2014 Corvette Stingray. The plan is to do a museum delivery at the end of May, all being well, and then cruise on home from Kentucky, with a side-trip up to Minnesota for a cousin’s wedding. The car will be a 2LT Z51 with performance exhaust and magnetic ride suspension in Night Race Blue with a Kalahari leather and suede interior. To say I’m excited is an understatement.
