What did you do to your E9 today?

Discovered the ability to use tinkercad on the toilet the other night. 12 hours later ended up with a perfectly radiused raised bellmouth intake with a 3"outlet, trim ring slots straight over, the recess is to allow for a 120mm LED ring to seat in.

Limey learnt how to use number 1 Web based CAD software and created a part whilst also creating a number 2.

Better?
I've been learning Fusion 360 as you can get a free copy for noncommercial use. So far I've made a lens board to mount a massive 1943 Kodak Aero Ektar Aerial Lens to a 1948 4x5 Speed Graphic. Other E9 related things will follow.

I made up new wood panels for my trunk floor, I then had some vinyl paint mixed up to match the new rhino hide ,then tomorrow I paint the plastic inner wheel covers, tool box , and taillight inner covers, then with some help , replace all the rhino hide , then ALMOST SADLY, cover most of it with the new carpet .
Burky 73cs, 74cs.
Hey do you know if anybody has scanned these pieces into electronic format? I have some wood trunk floor pieces but I think they've all been cut up by the previous owner.

Awakened her from a long slumber yesterday, shown some lovely spring sunshine and rekindled the old flame.

Unfortunately, a lil rusty on my Batcave's spacial dimensions and re-entry turning radius...made a slight miscalculation and added a scratch to a rear fender lip....argh!
A first time for everything.

But the overwhelming satisfying feeling of making her sideways through that left-hander earlier dilutes the annoyance of adding a minor scratch...
They are meant to be driven and it'll buff right out. ;)

.....and yes, the flame still roars.

Took out the stock foam hood insulation and installed the closed cell one from the ebay seller. Instructions call for 3M 80 adhesive and it’s a little stressful getting it all lined up before it dries. The stock foam deteriorated quickly and absorbs everything. This should last longer.

Steve,

You are gonna' like that insulation product. Robert Budd who developed that product is a friend of mine and I installed it on the hood of my '74 about 5 years ago. It looks great for a LOOOONG time. I don't know whether he is still selling it, as he sold the Classic 9 upholstery business about a year ago and retired.

Cheers,
