The worst outcome for this chassis is that it becomes a plug. But I think it will serve it's purpose as a testable prototype; if not be drivable for a while.

Yes, my avatar is a rendering of the 3D computer model I used to build CarBEN.

I got a few hours of work in this morning before the rain (from Arthur) started. Here's the start of the day (after trimming off the globs of foam):

Click on the thumbnail to see the series of photos. I have the holes started for the wiper shafts, and a large portion of the firewall needs to be cut back even more. I'll have to rebuild it from the inside of the car, up under the dash.

The windshield is now flush!

Sincerely, Neil
