    Still heading to be the coolest golf cart in Florida.

    Sometimes the "engineering" is the most fun part of a project. Thanks for the update. Looking good.

    I spent quite a bit of design time on the hood. The contour of the hood had to match the contour that I carved into the inner fender section. Because of the compound curves on the hood, which are quite subtle and hard to see, this was not a straightforward task. I made several test cuts of portions of the hood edge, matched up to the inner fender, to get it right. I made this first of 4 sections yesterday. The right side is finishing up now; should get the center sections done yet today.

    BTW the software was way off in predicting the carve time - 4:47 predicted, 2:02 actual.

    Did I say super cool? Yup, super cool.

    Always a pleasant surprise when the carving takes less than expected.

    Getting better and better. Hard to wrap my head around all the details you have to look at to make all the parts blend in.

    Looks better all the time. Know it's still a ways off but am curious whether your are going to stain it, paint it or maybe use aniline dyes for the finish.

    Thanks. Thinking natural finish. Will probably apply epoxy/ fiberglass cloth like a cedar strip canoe, with soar urethane for uv protection.
