Back at it prepping for and building for our first race. We have some parts in process to rebuild the front end. Deposit for first event will be handled in the next two weeks. Coming along nicely and honestly based on our schedule we are ahead of schedule! A good thing to say the least.

Our local friend who goes to school in Texas was home and he wanted to do something and that was paint. Time to mold the car to look like the original design! First we sand and clean...

Then time to start laying down the paint... from a can of course! Like any decent ChumpCar team... I mean F1 team would do!

Everyone pick their panel... and note to the team. Alex is not allowed to paint anymore with spray paint. Just hold the button down and lay it on right Alex?


Check out JAS USFail1 mechanic Josh... double canning it!
