Bubblegum drawings

I spent a day with the Redondo lowracer ...
taking fotos and doing full scale drawings.
Ostensibly this is for Smitty to make one for himself ...
or plans for someone else to make their own.

The drop-outs were easy ...
I held the paper right up against them and outlined them.
The rest of the form (frame) was kind of iffy ...
because it isn't exactly flat ... I was sorta outlining it
with the pen ... then straightening the lines,
and getting the proper widths.
I did manage to get all the critical angles
with a large woodshop protractor
