Tomorrow it goes on the trailer to the paint shop. We put some temporary lettering on the back so no one would get confused what it is..

I kinda missed the part where this went from 2 cars to 3, but nice work! And nice shop......

So are you selling off two of the cars when finished to pay for one? Or are you building them for different purposes?

#2 is now ready for one more light blast and epoxy primer. It then goes to speedworks in Santee for paint. Brad had been doing all mt Ferrari Dinos for years so this will be a change of pace. #3 is very close to having all the metal work also. At some point I will sell 2 of them or 3 and make another! I've gotten a lot of interest due to the all metal and awesome motor.

Curious if I would be able to commission a turbo width rear bumper from you? I'm in the process of dealing with an insurance claim, so now would be an ideal time for me to do so. I've currently got a '74 with steel turbo flares that i'd like to backdate.

Just an update on the progress of these builds. I have 2 of the cars at the paint shop now, one is in the metal work phase and number 4 is getting stripped of all the undercoating so it can go for media blast in a week or so. I originally was going to do one, then two, then three and now I've started the fourth. There has been a lot of interest in them and I think a lot more interest as they move along. I'm hoping to sell three of them. Will have to find that niche that will pay up as they haven't been cheap to build!! I've chosen 3 0f the colors, the 4th is yet to be decided.

#1 is close to paint. Working on the design to mimic the iconic 917 Hippie car, Freeman Thomas is helping me with this and has done some rough sketches.

That is some thread cred.
I got up close and personal with your inspiration in Philly a few weeks ago. Best, John

#2 goes to the paint shop next week. This is my favorite one with the graphics adapted to this from the Porsche 917 "Hippie" car. Freeman Thomas is doing the design and you will see the master in action. It's really cool that Freeman liked this project enough to get involved! I could not of done this project without him.

#3 is in white primer ready to be painted Gelb Green and #4 is in metal work which will be a replica of the Mary Stuart design. I plan to keep one of these and sell 3. Hopefully someone shares my vision on what I'm trying to accomplish!!
