A little more progress I've been working on my pedal box. Still need to drill the fixings for the master cylinder and for the cables but its getting there.



Next on the list is to get the steering on and the suspension sorted.

Well there's a pedal box that's not going to flex!

Are those brackets machined out of solid blocks?

I'm hoping it won't I used voucht plans he posted. I made the brackets out of box section. I drilled the holes first to keep it square then cut the ends off.

A bit late to comment but i hadn't seen your post before. how could I miss that ?

It is a very neat adaptation of my design you've made here. All aluminium and TIG welded? Nice, strong and light, I like it Congrats!

Been a while since my last post. I've not been able to get much done lately had a little accident with an angle grinder.

Managed to go through my tendons so a bit of surgery and six weeks in a splint.
I've made a bit of progress now though so a quick update for you all.



not sure if I've fitted the steering wheel a bit high though.


Cheers for looking
