Lucky you.. my wife absolutely despises anything sci-fi / fantasy related.. So far no luck in convincing here a homebuilt Tumbler is more fun than a Daihatsu Materia..

Okay I'm finally trying to catch up.  I'll say it here first but this goes for all of you CLTC Tumbler builders.  YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!!  I am so very impressed with your determination, dedication, and most importantly your talents.

Chile I am loving what you have done and your idea of how to make the parts.  Looks like to me you have done some model aircraft building in your time.  I can't wait to see what's next. 

Oh and to all of you guys....  Just because I don't often reply doesn't mean I don't care or are not interested.  I am, big time and I check all of your threads daily.  GREAT WORK!!!..

Far as I could tell it was the real deal. I don't know the car that well but from what I could see by the Ford tags and stamps and how it was made and assembled it seemed real. The engine had a tag that said it was hand built, where it was built and two signatures stamped into it. Also their were ford labels and stamps in a lot of the parts.

Thats only the second one I've seen around town and the first one I've seen up close.

Awesome dedication and progress Chili. If only I had the funds available .... I could learn fiberglass as I go along. I also love the idea of the gullwing doors. Not only more practical, but also probably a lot easier to fix if something would go wrong. Looks like the original canopy design would take a LOT of hydraulics to raise/open/slide.

Anyone building one close to Ohio want some help??

Well my frame plan has changed. I think I'm going to narrow the frame of my donor to fit between the rear tires and use the leaf springs that are on the axle. So the donor frame will become the top rail of the drive train tunnel, and give me a place to attach a rear bumper. Should save some money and make things easyer.
