Wheel Hubs

Dustin Winchester's wheel hubs came in today! Thanks to our good friends at Manchester Tool and Die we were able to get them quick and even got them heat treated. One step closer to a finished car...

Like I said via twitter, sorry for not posting last night as I promised but I'm making it up to you with lots of pictures of the progress we have been making.

I know you've been seeing a lot of the top hats but I promise it's Ben's last one.

Ben so excited to be wrapping up his work on the CNC mill

The beast that has been working non stop lately

With the frame in from Cartesian Tube Profiling, Ryan Zeiset went right to work assembling the frame so that it will be ready to be welding this weekend
