Scorpion build went GREAT today! Very talented and hard working group. These guys are the best scorpion guys around. This sled is stunning! There were a lot of photos taken and i'm sure will be posted soon. Thanks again to everyone. This scorpion stinger restoration will raise the bar for all future builds !

As posted by others, the build today was a great time and a rousing success. 

Starting out.  Jack inspects the tunnel to kick off the build !!


Tom and Jack Trial Fitting parts.






I see Jack and Tom.   And Roger in the fan housing he polished !!


The start of the day today.  The BS starts early with a little coffee


Now some good little workers, getting things done.  Do you sense a common theme with Jack ?










Jack and myself doing what we did best today.  Sitting on our hind ends while others handle the heavy lifting.


The Chuba brothers hard at work.  Chrome and gloss black sure go good together.


Mark and Chris fitting the windshield


With something this cool, sometimes everyone just has to stop and drool a little


Lunch break.  The hardest the group focused on any task all day !!


Now. .   Just some pics
























Just in case you don't think the engine cover is shiny.  You can see me, the chrome handlebars, the ceiling, and the chrome windshield trim in this one picture.  Seeing Chrome in Chrome, now that is shiny






"Chix next to sleds". . . And fellas, from what I hear, she'll whoop all of us when it comes to going fast !!  And the perfect sweatshirt for the day !!


I think we'll have a "you caption this" contest with this pic !!!


And here is the build crew with the sled as we ended the day.  Great progress !!

From Left to Right - Kevin Alm, Paul Husmann, Kevin Woeste,  Mark Chuba, Scott Tolve, Rodney Chuba, Jack Palokangas, Tom Peterson, Roger Larson, Chris Moore

I want to thank everyone involved today.  Tom, I don't know who cooked lunch, but thank them too.  It was awesome.  Things went better today than we could have hoped.  It was a great group who had fun, and got things done !!  Thank you everyone.
