Targa Here We Come!

Today Ed Millman, wife Suzanne and I got together to apply our “friends & sponsor” logos to the car.  As it turns out, it was fun and it began to strike home that our launch date is fast approaching.  (Fish and I leave in “The Enterprise” across country with the rally car on August 28th).  Here is the finished car but be sure to click on the photo before to see the whole story and many more pics.

The project of applying all the vinyl decals took about half a day and lots of patience.  Ed and Suzanne applied both their skills (Suzanne owned a design firm and Ed owns AdServices.com) in coming up with the decals.  This was a big project in and of itself.  After several mugs of coffee, the fun began.  Ed sizes up the rear quarter panel:

Suzanne and Ed were a great team:

I was pretty useless but enjoyed watching Suzanne at work:

I did however apply a few of the easier decals like this one:

…naw – I’m talking about the ChaseCam sticker…

Probably the toughest was the SinksOnline.com decal on the hood:

I wasn’t sure about the green Suzanne chose for our own company’s logo, but as you can see it really pops!:

SOL logo

….and the final result:

The following shows the 18′ Featherlite in the background that will be loaded up in 2 days so the car can get it’s final “race prep” at Racecraft in Woodinville:

    Jack (and Ed, too) – Your “2-OH-OH-2″ looks way too nice to go rallying! Your FlyingRubber team has done a beautiful job getting the car ready to go. From myself (and “Team Helton”, too) … I’m wishin’ you the BEST of luck! Go GETTUM!

    BTW, check out my “fb” home page for my competing in SPEED-TV’s “PINKS – All Out” last week-end. My ‘57 ran hard, as did my son’s Pro Street Nova!

    Again, GOOD Luck!!

    Damn, that thing is spiffy!! Too pretty to rally, there will be NO ditch-hooking at Targa, and be sure to take plenty of spray cans of “Treez-be-Gone”, too!
    Seriously, the Bimmer really looks great, and Gretchen & I wish you both the very best of luck. Just remember to have FUN!

    The car looks great. I always thought the co-drivers name goes on top on the do-drivers side….Ed?
