  • Behind the Scenes of the C7 development

    Thought this was a good inside look of what happened, and assume currently is the C8 dev. process:

      Superb find C8-wannabe. Thank you very much. That is an excellent article and as you noted, exactly what is happening right this moment behind the scenes. Final fittings of parts, then declaring each individual part “production ready,” for each of the many thousands of C8 parts now being finally evaluated during this current PPV (Pre Production Validation) process is so challenging and so time consuming.

      Here’s one of my favorite pictures.

      BTW many of them are reproduced in an outstanding book by Larry Edsall (below).

      I have this book and pull it off the shelf to re-look at it about twice monthly, for it describes in even further detail many more of the developments behind the scenes of the C7’s from concept drawing to initial production phases.
