Hey all,

I've been here for a few years and have gotten a bunch of help with this car. What originally started as a project for me has certainly evolved over the years. The addition of a few new family members has left little (I mean absolutely zero) time for me to work on it during my own time. After exploring some options, my day job as a middle school Tech-Ed teacher has given this car second life. I wanted to share the page that has been started for the new organization being run at my school. I'm also sure I'll be receiving a lot more help from all of you guys on the forum as we inevitably run into more issues.

Thanks again please take the time to check us out!

That is freaking awesome stuff. That's how my dad got me interested into cars. Doing little projects like that. I'm definitely going to visit the GoFundMe page. Keep it up and I hope some of the sponsors on here can help your students out.

Just wanted to swing in here and post an update. We got 99% of the interior removed. And started doing some painting on the inside today. These three weeks have easily been the most fun of my teaching career. I'm so pumped with how into the project the kids are. You can check out weekly pictures of our progress on the "Car & Progress" section of our page. If any body has any leads on safety equipment namely a seat and a harness. It would be greatly appreciated! We also have a go fund me page posted on our site, if you want to share it out through facebook or twitter.

Thanks to everyone for the support!

Update

Red. That would be AWESOME! Could you shoot me an e-mail to HornetsRacing@gmail.com so I can save your contact information? Just wanted to swing in here and post an update. We got 99% of the interior removed. And started doing some painting on the inside today. These three weeks have easily been the most fun of my teaching career. I'm so pumped with how into the project the kids are. You can check out weekly pictures of our progress on the "Car & Progress" section of our page.

**Update** There are a few interesting things going on right now, and I feel like we are actually making progress. As always feel free to check out our website

We began the layout for the front grille of our car. Our car currently does not have anything in the opening of the front bumper. The students are going to design a custom pattern, that will then be machined out of plastic on our CNC router. This is the beginning of that process.







Work painting the interior continues. We also removed the doors. The interior and exterior of the doors will be painted seperately to allow for more room for student work.

Just wanted to post an update. We have been going strong on body work and our rustoleum $50 paint job. I'm definitely impressed with the work the students are doing. Certainly it's not a professional job, but to think that 11, 12 and 13 year old kids have done EVERYTHING on this car I think it's coming along nicely! We've also started a facebook group that you can follow along with our blog. I'll be continually posting pictures on this site.<a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/201404770301726/">Hornets Racing Facebook</a></a>
