Those panels looks good Chuck :cheers:
The one panel appears to have a nice rubber "U" seal around the edges. I'm looking for a thin rubber section that I can put on my hood to prevent scratching the nose cone and scuttle. Do you think that seal would work and who is the supplier?
Thanx DaveW

Thanks guys. It was rewarding to see the end result.

Dave, maybe the pics don't show it clearly. They both have that rubber seal. I got it at McMaster.com some years back. I can't remember the p/n that I used. I bought it to trim out the leading edge of the side panels of the Locost as well as the cutout in that panel for the header. It comes in various sizes, depending on the thickness of the material you are trying to work. Being rubber, it has no real retention capability. For you application I would suggest gluing it in place. Good luck!

Welcome to my little corner of the website. I have nothing to say about the "Winter" vs "3 Winter" deviation. Seems like normal project creep to me :mrgreen: I noticed you didn't mention the Locst build. That's when I noticed I lost the link in my Signature line. I just added it back in. (Thanks Hempy). If you thought the Cushman read was hours, sit down in a comfy chair, and prepare yourself for my Locost read. (now sold) :cheers: Stop back in every now and then!

Hi rx7 - thanks for adding back the link - I had a feeling there must something more in your life than a Cushman...
I've read P.1, but have to stop for breakfast... Will look forward to this.
Back in my schooldays (about 1961...***!!!) I did a thesis on the Wankel - I've loved Mazuda ever since. I later had an MX3 - my all-time favourite car - owned, that is... My real favourite would be a Maserati...
Do you mean you've sold the car... or the book-rights to this build thread...? lol.
Regards, MangPong...
