Working on the book this week, detailing the area around the nose. The incentive is that the radiator, fan, and nose are mocked up on the table using wood shims and clamps. Every time the table is bumped or hammered on, the nose moves out of position. The plan is to get the book far enough ahead so aluminum radiator brackets┬ácan be fabricated, bolting them to rubber-isolated mounts, which in turn attach to the front framework. I have a great dislike for stuff sliding out of position, especially expensive parts that can drop on the floor. I’ll have to pick up some aluminum angle for the brackets, or bend them from plate.

Both of the beta-builders have been pretty quiet, a combination of work and life getting in the way, and perhaps me not feeding them drawings fast enough. That’ll get fixed soon enough.
