I have no GTX

Kip - just cruising the forum & thought I'd say hi!

PS Plus I'm getting closer to that 1000 post goal. By the way, what does one receive when when reaching that goal?

Progress

Finally back on the Forum to respond.
Been hammered at the shop lately....

The seal patterns are finished. What a job...

I am off to Haiti on Thursday for 10 days to help with reconstruction efforts.
I am having my crew progress the tools while I am out.

We'll post progress when I get back.

Thanks guys!

This thread is incredible.

I can't put into words how impressed I am at the artistry and craftsmanship that Kip and his shop are capable of, and others like them as well.

Simply put, you guys are the Michaelangelos and DaVincis of our times IMHO.

From what I was told last week, this GTX1 should be on the way home!

when it's not in Kip's workshop:banana

Car resides in Federal Way, so at some time, soon I hope, we'll be able to see it in person. Bonus for 2112 it's only a 40 mile drive. I'll see if we can get it to the SVT get together in Tacoma.



Kip, you need to chime in on this one.

Did you do your own wing? I have not found much on the sited except Matech. Can you post or email a few pictures (especially connection points) to lhewitt@hewitt1.com? I am considering building one for my 06 GT (I am also an Aerospace Engineer). I was going to connect into the bumper mounts to make it a no mod modification.

Thanks in advance.

Pm stormcat, he has a wing that I think he did some wind tunnel testing with, you can see the wing in his aviator photo.
