Default Progress Report

Hi all, thought it was time for a quick progress report.

Nearly 4 months to the day that my chassis was started, it is all finish painted, ready to be taken back to my garage.

Cannot thank forum member Gus, enough for the hard work he has put in making my chassis with me during our half hour lunch breaks. At least his shopping bills have been cheap. Didn't give him time to eat!!

Attached are a few pics of the chassis & cage all painted and assembled.

Sorry if they are a bit dark. They look better on the camera.





Cheers

Dave

Hi
What he forgot to say was it had all the fittings and brackets done,so hopefully no welding on it when at home.

Davidimurray - hope to have my car finished next week . Dash needs fitting , gear and hand brake gater and lots of trim. Then send off paper work .


Gus

WoW looking nice

Dave / Gus..... May I ask ......are the roll cage back stays & front down tubes welded to the chassis at the bottom?

reason I ask is that I,ve recently done mine but bolted them in with 4 bolts similar to the upper roll bar mounting, just in case I ever need to remove the roll bar.

I take it you both only have time for a kit kat in your lunch breaks, chassis is looking really nice

cheers
andy

Thanks for all the comments guys.

I'll be glad to get it home to spend a bit more time on it. Not that i'll get much with a 3 year old boy to play with.
He does like cars though. He was sat in Gus's at the weekend eating biscuits, and getting crumbs all over the place!!

Andy the rollcage in completely bolted into the chassis. The rear stays each have 2no. M8 bolts welded into the bottom of them, which bolt through plates welded to the chassis rear frame. The front tubes each have 3 fixings which go through a plate welded into the corner of the chassis. These bolt will eventually go through the ali floor and a spreader plate underneath.

Yesterday was the first time the rollcage had been back on the chassis since we welded it all up. Went on like a glove and all the bolts went in first time.

Cheers

Dave
