I thought I'd share with you the latest driver safety development for 1903. Grout introduced the model J drop front. The driver and passenger#1 sat in the rear seat. If you follow the tiller you'll see the driver sits on the right. Additional passengers sat in front, lower than the driver and passenger #1. This offered the driver an unobstructed view of the road ahead.
The safety development was the first air bag,the front passengers!

Work continues on Tilly. With Sarah's help the fuel tank with air pressure line and the fuel line that runs to the filter and on to the main burner valve were installed with the tank.
Next project will be to run a pressure test on the air/ fuel system as far back as the output side of the main fire valve.
We got the gas tank fit today. Tires started yesterday...Sarah thought you might like a different angle of Tillly.

Chateau Impney Hill Climb writes
"Arguably the most famous steam car ever produced, ‘Whistling Billy’ was one of the fastest cars of the American dirt track races in the early 20th century.
This 1905 steam car, which took eight years to painstakingly recreate, returns to Chateau Impney Hill Climb in 2019 after making its competitive debut here in 2016."
