Board: Accomplished! Paint: Accomplished! Time for Senior Symposium!

Today has been extremely productive. Fernando and I did a great job on our board. Along with that we touched up all the welds and made Templar as sturdy as ever, as well as finishing all the paint. Today has been great. 
Symposium is the next stop.

Say Goobye!

We have decided to give our child (Solar Templar) an extreme makeover. Silver is soooo last year, black is in now a days. This is a picture of the car before the painting commenced. Take your last look, because in a few short hours, everything will be....dark.

We Are Now Charged

Today we built the battery box and it looks great, it fits in perfectly with the car and is optimal size. In other news, we were able to obtain 6 fresh batteries that will power us to symposium!

It looks like Emily and Jason did some quality electrical work over the week. They wired the motor control and set up the grounder. We have really made a lot of progress over the past couple weeks.

Roll Cage Time

With a combined effort from me, Fernando, and Chris B. we were able to successfully install the roll cage. We all took turns on the welding, it may be a bit amateur but it is functional. 
Next step is to set up all the electrical wiring as well as present our project to Krauss and Dr. Culpepper.

The Presentation

We decided to utilize Prezi for our presentation. It is a great program that maps out all the different groups for the solar Templar. This is what we will be showing during our presentation instead of a PowerPoint, along with our blogs.

Chase was a great teacher and I picked up welding quite quickly. I even helped in welding the battery box and did a pretty decent job. Welding is a lot of fun and I look forward to getting even better at it. This will really help with progress on days Chase is absent.

Time to Weld

So today chase is going to teach me how to weld, I am going to practice on miscellaneous pieces of conduit until I get my technique better. 
I'm excited to learn how to weld, I know it's going to be a great skill.
Also this week we are going to finish the battery box and start working on the driver seat.
