Rear fenders trimmed and mounted. For some reason the two seem to be located slightly different relative to the rear tires… but the immediate goal is getting the car ready for the CHP inspection and for that they’re fine as-is. I’ll deal with alignment issues later. There are two very different groups of comments concerning the fenders; one says I definitely need them in order to avoid tons of rocks in the cockpit. The other says they’ll be nothing but trouble, draggy, and will break off. Guess I’ll be the first to find out.

Cowl, windscreen, and wipers are in. The wife noticed the wipers for the first time and burst into laughter, “they’re so cute!” Chicks…

A long day – I’m beat. While not obvious, building a car is like low-impact aerobics, lasting all day. That, and I suppose that I’m just getting old. I should be careful what I ask for as far as wishing for more project time. The place I work at may get hit by the sequestration, and while that’s one way to end up with more time for projects, it’s not ideal…
