    Thought I'd share some pics of a couple of fab jobs I've been working on...........................

    Matt Monday's Turbo Neon.......................

    Chuck Hanson's '98 Contour SVT rally car. The light bar is removable. Not pictured are a set of 1/8th inch thick 6061 aluminum skid plates covering the engine/ transmission and brake and fuel lines:

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Good luck loading the kids into the backseats. And, those holes in the dash are really going to hurt resale values... [:P] Nice work, Dave![Y] What is the next step? Keep us updated on the progress.

    Is that a Rally car as in Road Rally or Rallycross?

    Chuck's Contour is a Road Rally car. Apparently one of the Rallys he is doing out of state goes through a lot of thick forests........after dark. [:|]

    Will's description still may be a bit misleading. Road Rally is not performance based, at least as far as the car goes, so it is not a Rally ala Evo/Subaru/Stratos fame. It's done on public roads which are not closed to the public, so in theory it follows posted speed limits. However, brisk driving is occasionally called for (or at least the need seems to come up occasionally [:D]). Road rallies also frequently make use of infrequently travelled rural roads, as they tend to be more scenic, fun to drive and have less civilian traffic to deal with. Sometimes that means gravel. Sometimes after dark.

    Chuck has been quite successful in Road Rally, even nationally. I'm sure he added the skid plates so he doesn't have to be worried about banging something up in a worst-case scenario when he needs to make up time on a rough road to nail the next check point. Seems pretty smart to me, and you can never have enough light at night on a country road.

    Amen to that! Living out in the sticks like I have my entire life I aspire to more light! The car currently runs 6 bulbs on high, the pair od 55W lows, the 50W highs and a pair of 50W fogs.
