Happy new years to all and I hope your Christmas was enjoyable!
I have done a little bit of work on my little project so here are the latest pics I have of the work taking place.
In these pics I have started the removable headrest protection area, while most will know what this section is, for the others…its a section that sits around the drivers head and continues down to almost in line with the wheel. This section can be removed by driver to aid in getting in and out of the car.
It is still possible to get in and out with out removing this section, but it is rather a tight fit and requires angling the shoulder to do it. The width is regulated by the FIA but as a practical size when it’s installed it makes the cockpit opening about the width of your hips.
Not finished in those pics but you can see even though it looks rather crude it’s starting to take form.
I also got a chance to drag the rig out side to add and shape the largest top piece of the nose area.
So there you have it… :)
More pics soon as I want to try and get it all assembled in January so I can get it painted….hmmmm now to chose a colour. I swore it wasn’t going to be red but now one Schumi has left maybe I can once again support Ferrari…!!! Don’t know now…hmmmmm. Maybe I’ll make my own livery?!?!
While I consider MS to be one of the best drivers ever, he isn’t THE BEST imho…
Ayrton Senna holds that crown and will for some time.
In saying that I am pumped that Schumi has decided to make a come back..The 2010 F1 season is looking like it will be an absolute cracker! Can’t wait.
