Front frame




I'm not happy with the result - I think I will have to make one again... but I'll see how it fit to the rest of chassis.

But it's cold outside, I'm sick (some kind of flu) so I orginised my work different

One guy from work has lathe, I draw some sketches and he did for me some parts:

Crush tubes, bush tubes... with DIY polyurethan bushes (I made them myself from two-component polyurethan resin)

It's just an example - I got whole set of them...

Front camber adjusters, sleeve tubes and rear camber tubes (?):


DIY sprocket adapter almost ready (SAE1140 flange)...


Need some welding...

... and then turning/balancing...

Tomorrow I plan to weld it but balancing/turning have to wait until water cooled lathe defrost and start to work again...
Next week I will have catalytic gas heater - maybe this would help keep me warm while building.

Looks like you have all the skills to make an excellent roadster

Looks good so far ,keep it up. The winter usually sorts the men builders from the boys
You may need a nuclear power plant in your garage for Polish winters

And by the way, you look to be doing a very good job, so congratulations. Polish winter should be at least as harsh as the Swedish one, and I have to confess I don't spend that much time in the workshop, so double congrats

I've got a full stainless steel exhaust system and manifold that would suit your car if you are interested ?

Cheers Dan

I thought you sold it with the engine...

It's all about the money I don't know how much it could cost in Poland to make one (probably much cheaper then in UK) and what's good deal for me.

Beside, I'm not sure if it suit my car/engine position (as to the right as possible) but with little modification should be OK.

Is this photo flipped or... I don't know how this fit zx9r

Do you have any photo of it on the car ? (I saw only your old manifold)

Last purchase:

10GBP - and only one problem - I got no key to ignition barrel... It would be my first barrel breaking in life


Genuine MOMO hub (K4524) - I tried it on my column and looks like it fits...
Apart that I already have Raid steering wheel (different PCD)... but for 6,40GBP - I couldn't resist... I'll have excuse to buy snap-off adapter

Next week I'll get another column - adjustable one and OEM Sierra steering wheel...
