Hopefully on time for the PPPCC All Pontiac Show n Shine or Arlington ?       

..Fiero Fest is on the same weekend as the PPPCC Show n Shine.   So FieroFest might be a stretch also.

Today we got first snow fall, but I still made progress with her.
Welded front brackets to bolt on rocker panels (back brackets are on long time ago).


That was fun

They bumped it up to June but I think they got a negative response on that so they might still move it back to August.  I sent them a note saying the June date conflicts with other June events so we will have to wait and see.   

There will those Weissach Motors cars and coffee events, I think RBS would definitely show up those overpriced Lambos and Ferraris.  during the summer months.  So I will try and keep events posted on this forum.

I think that will be great.  I can do Krispy kreme.   

January might be difficult though.  Just found out I will be doing some business trips out of town in January.   

My job description is a-changing.

Not sure what we can do to help, but I think we should make a club event of it to help Jonny finish the build on time for the PPPCC show n shine. 

What do you say?   Can you come of with a worklist for us to volunteer and help get it done? 

Even if unpainted, I think the car will awesome in the show.

Thanks Maureen and Jim for the nice complements Embarrassed I just got over a cold and feeling better now.
Yesterday started to work again on RBSII.

Thanks Ken for the great idea for a club event to help out and get her ready for PPPCC.
Maybe we can do that sometime in April or May, Blair is going to wire up the lights and RBS will just 
be finished in black primer for the time ?

Thanks again TongueClap

Hi John, the Beast is looking GREAT.

The hood and Front end are really sharp.

Hopefully the club can get together soon and see what you need to finish up the car for the summer.

Nice to see the huge progress.  WOW

The front end SO needs some DC linear actuators under it! Can't be just grabbing the edge and lifting it up!  That's so.... manual....  ha ha.

Tap button, front end silently and gracefully lifts up into place. Tap again, it slips back down.  Big smile

Thanks, that was always on my mind, maybe add actuators later on some time in summer? Wink

A little update, redesigned rocker panel scoops...
