    They also battled with mounting the front facing camera this week...pics on this not so good. We had originally discussed putting hit behind the latching mechanism on the hood, however space and perspective drove us to other options. Mounting below the radiator but on top of the chin, there would be no room. So ultimately we went underneath...the pros are that it gives you a really good perspective from the camera, once the car is on the ground it is difficult to see...the cons, do I dare state the obvious...it sits in the lowest area of the car and will get smacked violently if it is bumped. For the last reason, it is only mounted with double stick tape to allow it to "break-away" in that event. May think about this a little more once the car is home.

    Yeah, that spot kinda sucks. Is that one of the small 1" cube types? no way to go behind the grill at the bottom and look between the slats? (I'm sure you've already thought through all of this)

    Yes, it is. Since it is temp mounted for now with tape, I want to get it in my shop and play around with location a bit, as well as view. I think we all know that ultimately, me being able to see something before I hit it, will likely not keep me from hitting it, especially in those instance where things sneak up on you. I have to tell you that I have lost more sleep than I would like to admit to over the height of the bottom of the grill (4"). I am extremely concerned with approach angle on drainage areas at intersections, etc. as this directly the affects the driveability of the car and I also understand how much damage can be done with just the lightest scrub (radiator, grill, hood, etc.). To some of the other builders currently driving your car, am I over thinking this, is this as much of an issue as I am making it out to be?

    Going back to the camera, I have several actuators and pins left over from door pops, safety pins, etc. that I was thinking, I could possibly put the camera further back on the Chin and actually have an actuator to lower and raise...just thinking outside the box...and worse case scenario, I will just leave it off.

    Thanks

    I think I had previously mentioned that, in the even I make it to a show..., I have been working on a stand that would allow me to run a tv with a slide show of the build. I have been making some progress on that. I mocked-up a 22" tv on the stand and also was able to test out a dry cell battery that allowed me to run the tv 11+ hours on one charge. The tv only draws 40 watts per hour and the battery has a 35Ah rating (I think 11 hours should be safe) and the it keeps the battery still small enough to hide and light enough to carry...

    I also plan to purchase some astro turf and stripe it like a field...some of the shows I have been looking at want photos of your display

    I agree, but also like what you are doing.
    I'm doing the wiring for the front and rear cameras now, the location for the front will be a challenge.
    I may raise the height of the car slightly or have the camera on a bracket mounted on the pass side of the chin.

    Thanks Jim...ultimately that may be the only good answer (raising the height).

    I’ve been driving mine a lot. I’ve got about 50 miles on it. The front is too low.

    Made what should be my last visit out to 121 R & R today. Walked over the car and taped off a few spots that will need some clean up. Front Brake Flex lines should be replaced in the next day or two as well as a final tune performed. The issue that I had with the brake lines is that when I installed them I didn't have tires, wheels. steering installed, so I didn't do an adequate enough job in testing the range of motion before setting the bracket...this fix at this point was to go with some lines that are about an inch or two longer. I also confirmed with Kory that they did come up with a manual door pop system (in the event the keys get locked in the car). He explained they did, showed me the location and actuation (of which I will keep the details to myself ) and then informed me that they have used it several times already! We also discussed the front car height and I ultimately told him to raise it a bit. I will share the final height once it is raised, but Kory had suggested they have used the rule of thumb in the past, that if an aluminum can can roll under it - it is high enough. I am happy with where we are, extremely excited to soon be getting the car home, frustrated a bit by timing (as it is getting cooler, but could be 90 for Thanksgiving), but also know that the areas of concern and focus were areas that needed attention and could not be overlooked or saved for later. The rest of the time I have left before deliver, I will spend just getting my shop back in order.
