Santa Fe's getting braid

Postby Junior » Sun Dec 06, 2015 8:53 pm

Norb decided that the oval needed a little make over and is getting some shiney new braid from SCC.

Phil is setting the router depth on a spare piece of MDF.

The next steps will be braid and wiring.
Looking forward to running on the oval again!

Wow, looking good guys. Well done.

Cheater is a good supervisor isn't he?

And we knew Pickles had other talents.

Pretty excited. Can't wait to see it completed, but we will take our time.
Thanks guys for your help. Reconstruction has gone smooth so far.
Probably get back to it after the holidays. :banana-dance:

Looks like you got some good helping hands putting some nice touches to it Norb. Should be sweet when done.

Thanks Armando. Look for an invite to race when we get it done.
I like your new track. The D oval should be a blast.
Looking forward to seeing you again.

The braiding of the oval continues. A little slow going because it is a portable track. All that is left is the wiring.
Can't wait to racing on it!

Norb seems happy with the progress.

One of the sections with braid, need to to do a little nip and tuck still.
