Progress update.

Rome was not built in one day. Neither the Salt Slush Racing Volvo Amazon. But we're tooling our way to success step by step. We practise the do-something-almost-everyday strategy. Design, decide, build, order something everyday then all of a sudden you'll get there. Next big step is now to remove the vehicle from the build table and let it gently touch the holy garage floor for the first time.  This will happen really soon now. Meanwhile, here's a few pictures of details that we like. 
 Anders is in a sheet metal forming period. Which is good. He's especially proud over the right part of this section. A complex shape which is too complex to understand matematically, which is why he just did it without thinking too much.
The beautiful handmade (spinning) Moon hubcaps, the ones that is screwed to the wheel, feels good to have in place. If it wouldn't have been for the fact that they've been used by a lot of gearheads for many years, I would have been concerned about air leaks....
Paul, a SSR friend with certain experience of land speed racing on the Salt Flats, took the opportunity to inspect the vehicle while it's still on the table.
