Pages 9 and 10 appear to be MIA.

It's all there, step by step by step. Foam egg crate formers with foam skin and overlaid fiberglass - sounds familiar! Good fiberglass techniques on display here, too.

And soon it will look something like this with a blown oval dome nose, larger hard tail shaped trunk, and stretch fabric skin.

Then it will get a Crystalyte HS3540 hub motor and 27 A123 Amp20 cells for 40 miles at 40 mph at 40Wh per mile (850 mpge).

Combine that with an E bike kit And some bigger batteries (or more) and you could have yourself a serious personal electric vehicular...

Edit* sorry, just looked through the other pages..
