    I don't think either of us will be having much fun. Jeff gets to do all the work, and I have to endure the wait. No question I'll be happy with the car when it's done though.

    I found your build thread and hope to learn a lot from it. Looks like your doing great. I'm about to make the plunge in to building one myself. Did you build the buck yourself? Did FF provide you plans for it?

    Tom,

    Thanks! The FFR manual includes plans for building the buck. You can order an electronic version of the manual from FFR for $10. It's worth having even with the printed manual as you can search it!

    When I attached it to the trunk, all but one screw went in clean. The fiberglass in the flange for the screw at the narrowest portion of the panel (bottom screw in the picture), didn't have anything to bite into.



    I'll just use a machine screw in that hole.

    Finally, I covered the two fuel tank access covers with carpet and replaced all the screws for the cover plates with black oxide button head screws.



    Other than getting the bulb seal on, the trunk is done. I will still need to drill for the back leg of the roll bars, but want to wait until they are permanently installed since I'm using the Tangent hidden bolts and don't know exactly where the tubing will bottom out on the main hoop.

    So Papa - how do you countersink the screw holes? Iím
    assuming that there is a countersinking drill bit that corresponds to the size of hardware that youíre using and that you run the bit all the way down and it countersinks as it bottoms out. Is that how it works?

    Zach,

    Get a countersink bit that will cut the same angle as the angle of the screw head. For the depth, I just set my drill press to stop at the desired depth. If you don't have a drill press, just do a little at a time and test the screw level until you get what you want. I started with pilot holes and then ran the countersink bit. Doing it that way, the bevel will be centered exactly where you want it.

    Very interesting to see the top installation. Looks like a quality kit.
