Not much been going on, what with festive period and travel with work.....
Attended Autosport last weekend and was a bit disappointed at the lack of purchasing opportunities. I DID however, pick up a brake proportioning valve...



Also, (and with BIG thanks again to Al, Bob and Jack) picked up an as-new roll cage by 'Caged' in Frome. An amazing bit of kit and VERY substantial it has to be said!!




Also removed the original mountings that came with it....along with a good portion of the car





Once I have cleaned up the mounting turrets I will weld them into place. Removing them from the original shell was a bit of a nightmare TBH but we got there in the end!!

Was great to see you again Scott, just wish I could have hung around longer!
Can't wait to see the cage fitted!

No, sorry. You would need to call them for a quote. Mine was secondhand and a tad over £500.

Adam - Dont have any more pics other than the one's on the thread. As for a process it went something like:- Measure cooler matrix dimensions; consider the shape of duct needed given the dimensions of cooler and space available under car; construct mould based on <<---; usual mould preparations (PVA, wax etc); gelcoat layer; start laying up CSM; layer of coremat (my choice but not essential); more CSM; layer of flocoat; leave to harden; remove from mould; voila....done!!

Some good books on composite construction. I have the Simon McBeath Competition car composites (part of the Haynes series) which is good from a technical point of view. Also have an older one...Automotive Glassfibre by Dennis Foy which is slightly more 'hands-on'. Both books are excellent and complement each other well... theory and technical Vs practical.
Composites are not as shrouded in mystique as you are lead to believe. Its like anything else, just get yourself some resin, material and PPE and get stuck in. You'll grasp the basics of technique very quickly and can start making useful stuff VERY quickly. Its just the mould/pattern making that takes the time and thought. Once you have that done, making the actual part is a doddle!!

good good, yup, seen McBeath's books before... more the aero one, but wouldnt mind both.

Using PVA as a release for the mould so it just pulls off/out rather than wax?

Depending on what I'm using to make the mould from i.e. its porosity, I generally use both PVA and wax. PVA first as a sealant and then a few separate coats of wax as a release. Never had any bother with extraction using that method..

I have the whole Haynes series, thoroughly recommended.

I intend to start making a mould of the GTR N/S headlight very soon. I have a million and one other things to do but it IS on my list. Have bought some carbon twill to make a holder for my Dash 2 and more CSM so I'l likely just do them all at once!!

Been busy...Have prepared the body boxes for the cage and have them tacked in place. Also managed to trial fit the cage and cut the dash. Unfortunately I ran out of welding gas earlier so it'll be a trip to Machinemart tomorrow for another bottle. Should get the boxes finished, cleaned up and primered.
Here's how its coming along....



The car has been screaming out for a cage and seeing it all in, albeit a dummy fit, it just looked 'right'. Over the moon with it!!

Also managed to sell my Sard 700cc injectors today which I plan to replace with ID1000's. Get paid in a couple of days so will order them then .

Oh, almost forgot....got to work with the clear silicone sealant and put a generous bead around the rear polycarb screen. Despite installing it with a thick foam seal, it leaked a bit the last time it was out in the rain (trip up to Abbey). Hopefully this will solve the problem. Minor, but niggly

So, seeing as its just after payday I have been buying some stuff....
  • A Peltor FMT-120 intercom unit...


Just need the lead from intercom to Motorola radio and the system is all done!!!
  • A Ross dry sump drive


Will be sending this up to Andy (AMT Andy) so he can get to work on my trigger kit for the Ross Race damper I have.

Also got another Bosch air temp sensor as I felt I wanted to monitor pre intercooler temps.

Over the weekend I plan to be busy getting this cage completely installed. Then I can get the doors off, advertised and the new composite doors painted and fitted along with the polycarb side windows.
Also looking into making up my own injector, coil and sensor looms and have me eye on some sexy Deutsch AS series connectors. Decided to take the plunge and buy a Deutsch crimping tool as I reckon I will get a good bit of use out of it.

So, roll on tomorrow!!!

TT

Well...got cracking early doors this morning and got heaps done....

Started off by finishing the welding of the cage mounting boxes and then preparing and spraying them body colour. Once the paint dried I then started to install the cage. Was relatively easy to put in and looks the nuts!!!
Also, amazingly, my Peltor FMT-120 intercom arrived this afternoon so I installed that too.

Got absolutely loads done and VERY pleased with the progress!!!
Will upload some pics tomorrow...

Right, so clearly I didnt get any pics up yesterday...

Not to worry though because, seeing as the weather was 'with the programme' I decided to give it a wash and take some pics. The result...









Intercom mounted on cage...


After all that I then started to prep the drivers composite door...


Shouldn't take too long to prep and spray. Reckon I'll have them done by the weekend.

Coming along nicely
