Preliminary Sanding of Body

(46 days until the 2012 WHPSC)

Dad getting medieval on the foam with 40-grit on an 8-inch gear drive sander

The sander removes the 10-pound foam VERY quickly

Starting to look like a streamliner

Dad buzzing the canopy area

More snow in Perris, California in the middle of Summer

Even Annie got show on her

Just about ready for glass!

The excess armature protruding from the nose will get trimmed once the nose is extended (it tapers too quickly at the front, and would likely present clearance problems with my toes).

Continuing around

... and around
