Seat belts

I’ve got one of those cheap alternatives from China instead of good known seat belts. Somehow I refuse to believe that the material they’re made from won’t hold me in place. When I decided to get those cheaper alternatives I was thinking like that: if those are gonna break, crash would be so bad that […]

Gauges

Naturally, car needs instruments panel. I was having bad dreams about how to cope with this topic. First idea was to do it all by myself: use a stepper motor, laser-cut the panel, dash, numbers etc. and do all the programming. All would be OK, I know how to deal with electronics, but I was always questioning […]

Cooling system

Seems like the only thing left for the cooling system is connecting air bleed pipe to the fluid reservoir. This time I’ve made mounting points with rubber pads so vibrations should not do any harm to the radiator itself. Radiator offsets out of a frame a bit, but I think I’ll be able to nicely hide […]

Frame welding

Lucky coincidence I was able to get the frame welded with TIG. As long as the frame is still missing some small parts like mounting brackets (which requires a lot of work to weld it up together) there were not that much of work – whole process took about 5-6 hours. I do also believe […]

Pedal box

Not that much to the first test drive left. Actually, only two things: to get the [correct] shock absorbers, and pedal box with hydraulic pipes. As long as I want to get as much must-have weight as possible before buying coilovers, I’ve just started pedal box. Actually, it’s quite math-intensive task. I’ll skip it all […]

Fuel tank

It was a while since last update but it doesn’t mean I didn’t do anything. Next big topic accomplished – fuel tank. It was one of those topics I was not sure from where to start so simply checked out what materials are others using. Settled down on 2 mm thick aluminum. Found out that […]

Shifters / direction changers

I had some moments yesterday to be able to work on a project, so it was time to make one of a final dots to the suspension work. I don’t like upper arms of a front suspension (and, to be honest, whole rear suspension, too. But it’s something to be re-worked later) but I think […]
