Things are starting to come together, slowly.

doo you think I have enough yellow in my shop? The engine and chain case are just set in place for the moment to determine proper fit for the steering support loop. The signage is from a local asphalt plant that closed and was demolished.



When I was young, I was strictly a leg man. Now that I'm in middle age, I appreciate all the curves



The fan housing buffed out very nicely, will get a better angle of it next time. White recoil handle coming from Rich Hahl. The leaf spring on the motor mount bracket will be removed...a.) it doesn't look right, and b.) I need it for a 292



Lucked out with the gem tube, it came with the sled, carb came from Dan Broust, thanks Dan

Nice Larry, never enough yellow, you motor looks sweet, have you put the spring in your driven clutch? Or is it just on for the effect!

Spring? what spring?    Yes, the primary is just set on there for right now to help determine the  alignment of the '70 style steering support loop. I want that  fitted such that clutch and recoil can be removed.

Good, the reason I asked I got a 67 primary clutch of BP6 about 3 years ago since the one on my alpine originally was a newer type from probably from an Elan, but the problem with hording all the parts before you use them (especially over 3 years ago) Things go missing or misplaced or forget where you put them, so I thought I had the wrong clutch parts.

Looks really good!

Is a '66 chassis essentially the same as a '67? My 7 is stripped down now, looks nearly identical.

Larry those supports on the gas filler neck, are they original, been adjusting mine on my alpine but it changes every week, been thinking about adding some kind of support to stiffen up the filler neck so it stays center on the hole in the hood.

Learned something here....JD Old Construction Yellow?  Looks good in your pictures. I've been looking for an aerosol here in Ontario, maybe need to stop by JD dealer.  Is it reasonbly close to original for a match?  I have a 68 Super Oly that needs some attention and between your post and EricR's I'm getting some inspiration.

Bill...No, the filler neck supports are not original. Just one inch flat stock from the hardware store. The bottom end cut at an angle to match the turn in the chassis, the top end grinded concave to get a snug fit on the radius of the filler neck, it's rock solid.

Silver Bullet... The JD Old Contruction Yellow is on the orange side, I'm not completely satisfied with it but it's done now and I'm not moving backwards on the project. It looks okay under cool florescent light or bright sunshine, other times the orange is more noticable. It's a very bright paint.  The best representation of it in this series of photos is the third one down, the close up of the engine, notice the foot rest on the right side.

After two and half years, on and off, with this project it finally came together over the weekend. It actually overwhelmed me a little bit to see it take shape so quickly after such a long time.

Joe,  Great looking sled.

  I picked up some "JD construction yellow" the other day seemed a bit orange on the skis I did compared to my 70 Oly tunnel.    Is there an "old construction yellow" that is different from "new construction yellow?

I believe the old construction yellow is the more orange of the two. I haven't used the "new" shade, called simply construction yellow, but based on the color of all the new JD equipment it looked way too lemon yellow. In any event, if you're after ski doo yellow, neither one of the JD shades is a good choice. I don't have pro spray equipment...no gun, no compressor...so aerosole was my only option. However, at $14.25 a can it's not much of a savings over real automotive paint put into aerosole. On this project I did some things out of order and also made some big mistakes, all of which led to additional painting. In the end I wound up spending almost $200 on the paint job and have the wrong shade of yellow.  I would have been better off going with ddub yellow aerosole from the begining. Lesson learned. For the next all yellow sled there will be a gun, a compressor, and the correct shade of yellow by the quart.

If for no other reason I had to join the forum just to tell you that is insanely beautiful work you've done in every regard. Time and patience, key to an end result like that. I've saved all your pics as inspiration. Congrats.
