As promised, here are a few pics of the progress made today.

First is a teaser of the view in the enclosed back portion of the car... I'm not sure it qualifies as a trunk anymore... There will not be much if anything else carried in there....

Joe Racer778 loaned me his Nitrous bottle until I can get my second one...

Under the carpet is an aluminum plate the nitrous bottle frame is bolted to... There are still a few adjustments to be made, but it certainly works for now. In one of the pics, Joe managed to get his hand involved...

Yup, two 15 lb tanks... The other bottle belongs to Joe, Racer 778, my second tank isn't here yet... and so Joe loaned me his for the Fest... I'll wire up the second heater tomorrow...

We are going to t- the hose into both bottles... and can run on one or the other or both as needed... For the mile runs, we'll certainly be on both bottles... to maintain pressure... for the Fest, we'll play it by ear... We are going to be on a very conservative shot right now... Just not enough time to tune for maximum effort, and neither Corey or I want to hurt the car... and no fast runs will really be made until late Oct early Nov when it cools significantly....

I love Scuba diving, just not swimming around rigs... Diving with these tanks could get interesting though... Here fish... have a blast....

Scrap the heaters and get the nano. Better, instant pressure.

So, you've seen the hind end of the nitrous... now for the front end...

This is a Robert designed, Corey built fuel cell and the nitrous controllers. We will have C-16 race fuel in the cell to mix with the Nitrous.... Spraying a wet shot into the intake....

We still have one piece to build for it, waiting on a fitting... tomorrow, so it's just sitting in there right now... It isn't bolted down...

There is a stand alone fuel pump in the tank, and the regulator on the outside... It'll hold almost two gallons... Again, the primary intention here is for the standing mile runs, so the big tank and two nitrous tanks ought to serve us well...
