Re: Pic of the Day

It's a plywood, presumably marine grade; though knowing Bluebird it's just as likely the back out of a 1950s wardrobe! :lol:

Re: Technical Talk

Actually the speedometer is mounted centrally above the steering wheel; at first in 1966 it was mounted in the instrument panel itself, and then later on it was moved higher and placed in a little box, to better put it in Donald's eyeline. A rather token glare shield was also fitted to the box.

Re: Technical Talk

Re: Bluebird Project Online Shop

No plans here at the moment- we've got rather a lot to do as it is! -but it will of course have a lot of media coverage, so you'll definitely see her go (or not! :lol: )

Re: Rebuild / cockpit

Hello, The harness is exactly what Donald had with the (current) exception of the 'Irvin' labels. It is mounted in the same positions behind the shoulders, but is mounted differently on the lower points; these are now solidly bolted into the lower frame tube, rather than being bolted through the 1mm...
