time to get “purty”… NASA American Iron Javelin update

well it’s been a LONG time coming but the car is finally at the body shop! Ended up going with MAACO in Santa Rosa. got a couple of bids but what clinched it was that they will be able to complete the car by next week! some people have commented that they love the unpainted look the car has now. I don’t but even if I did racing organizations don’t allow you to bring junk to their races. even some of the track groups (like NCRC) require you to have a car that doesn’t look like poo… so if I want to run with NCRC in a couple of weeks and race with NASA then the body/paint need some attention.

once it’s out of the paint shop I still need to get the graphics/numbers done and applied. Jeff knows a guy so I’ll get working on that next. stay tuned!

  1. Teriffic build! I’ve always loved to see racers think outside the box and NASA has certainly allowed that. While my 88′ stang is a converted SCCA American Sedan car for autocross duty, it doesn’t come close to the detication needed to be a Nash lover. Need for pics, good luck in your rookie year! As far as your lack of temperature, a pusher electric fan will help as they are typically 10-15% less efficent at moving air than a puller fan. Also are you using a fan shroud? If your radiator is too efficent try removing the shroud as this will make your current fan less efficent.
