Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

That's what I did for the lacquering, but I think I had the angle of the nozzle wrong an maybe spayed too much at the join. I should be able to flat this back and make it disappear. This pic was taken just before I sprayed it, note folded back tape :mrgreen: 8)

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

The line is still visible if you look really close, but I taped it at the crease line to try and take your eye of it. Just before I clear coated I pulled the tape back and flatted the join. I saw a YouTube video that used that technique. It could do with another flat and polish at the join, but I’m ...

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

It’s a belt driven Clarke, and I thinks it’s 50lts 9cfm. But I could have that wrong, I’d need to check. It produces way more air than the paint gun I used actually needs. In fact I had to gag the pressure back quite a bit.

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

Not done much with the Scim recently, but we now have most of the bits to start building up the spare engine complete with the Canadian manifold. That should start tomorrow. In the mean time I've been preparing the S2000 for sale, which included getting through another MOT and doing odds and sods on...

MOT exemption

The Ti is due at the end of May, so that'll mean I won't have to MOT it this year as it goes SORN in November. I'll get it done in March next year.

Look what came in the post today

Well, not exactly in the post as I had to go and collect it - A Tesla Model 3 Long Range AWD :D Ah, it drives like a dream! An iPad on wheels! And the funny thing is that driving around our residential area (keeping to speed limit 30 km/h huh?) is no problem whereas it was with scim and Toyota. The...
