What do you all think??

i,m worried by the GTS decal in the pictures
i thought GTS was taboo ........ in the kitcar world
cheers les g

Ha, Well i dunno. GTS has been fantastic to me and constantly been offering and helping me so i can't complain. But yes i think some have had issues.

3D CAD file of Roadster Body

you made a very impressive drawing Fabrun.
I've done the body panels in 3D CAD, measured the panels I bought from Marc Fabbyglass Triton.
I can send IGES or STEP or anything else to anyone who is interested. (not for commercial use)

Just send me an e-mail address.
Mind you, it's a 15 Mb file.

Thanks Eddy very kind offer - PM sent


fabrun 12th January 2010 07:53 PM

wheels arches addded (10 days of holiday and i will go on)

davidimurray 13th January 2010 03:07 PM


Those are fantastic CAD models - i've done some bits of the car myself. Used to use Solidworks as my day job but only use it now for homework - and helping out the drawing office when they are stuck :D Have you tried exporting the model as a 3d PDF? They look great and everyone then can have a play with the model.

thanks GraemeWebb
not the drawing but a real photo , so i can improve my assembly

video update


alga 27th January 2010 10:11 AM

A video I would like to see is this roadster being assembled in 2 minutes :) Better yet if the chassis was also assembled in sequence. Can you do that with your model?

fabrun 27th January 2010 11:12 AM

like this video ?
i can, off course
when the model will be finished i will thinking of it

Wgroove 27th January 2010 08:56 PM

Amazing job Fabrun !
I am also building a LHD Haynes roadster (i'm from Belgium), and also using Solidworks for some parts. but what you are doing is just amazing ! Is there any chance you will share these drawings ? Could be verry helpfull for me.
It's my first day on this forum, and for me, this is what Disneyworld is for my children !:D
Thx !

flyerncle 27th January 2010 09:20 PM

Fabrun,Have you any ideas for rocker arm suspension.


Nice vid.

Superloom 27th January 2010 09:25 PM

Lots of credit to you there. I know how much skill you need and how much time something like that takes. I hope you are very proud of yourself. I would be :)

fabrun 28th January 2010 02:16 AM

wgroove: (and everyone) read this http://www.haynes.co.uk/forums/showp...4&postcount=31

jus't don't know what is a "rocker arms" so i make a google search (images)
a good way to see solutions

thanks a lot,
i can't be pride for something i do everyday
i would be pride when i finished building this car in real

flyerncle 28th January 2010 06:30 PM

Yes Fabrun the link is exactly what I am talking about.

I would love to get a complete 3D cad model finished. This is how far i've gotten so far:

bodywork update

LeonN 31st January 2010 06:17 PM

AshG 31st January 2010 08:30 PM

yer i can not spell. sorry :o

if it is the triton set then the only way i can see getting a BMW 4 pot under there is with ITB's and a dry sump with separate oil resivoir / cooler
but that i gess is a different discussion.

Thanks man.

mopple 2nd February 2010 02:27 PM

Hi Fabrun,
must agree with everyone else, you have done a great job. Have you only modeled the Roadster or have you done some drawings too? Here's my own drawing of the almost complete frame, also modeled in SolidWorks http://web.zone.ee/mopple/Raam.PDF. From my own made drawings and from the book plans my chassis fabrication starts on the next week.
In one of your earlier post you said that you make living with SolidWorks. Could you be more specific?


alga 2nd February 2010 10:18 PM

Mopple, great drawings! I wish I had those before I started my chassis.

fabrun 3rd February 2010 01:59 PM

and (finally?)

spud69 3rd February 2010 02:16 PM

That looks great, do you want a job???;)

Bit too much camber on the front wheels though.....:cool:


fabrun 3rd February 2010 02:57 PM

thanks andyh
you need a 3d designer?

for the camber, can you show me with a picture?

fabrun 7th February 2010 09:36 AM


Peter-C 7th February 2010 11:41 AM

Hi Fabrun,

Could you model one with a yellow nose, scuttle and wings please ?
