Hi,

 

Here´s some pics. before I put every thing away for a while.  i have invest in a house, so now it´s time to move from this apartment...happy happy joy joy!! :lol:

 

My resin CBD-injector got some nice Scale Motorsport carbon fiber decals. I will coat it later with some layers of clear.

I Cut the door open on the body...

...but when I did a mockup with chassis/body I was not satisfied...the cage top didn´t match the roofline inside...ouch!

time to get back to the drawingboard....and make a new chassis.

Yeah Rickard congratulations on your house.

The scoop looks great. My stupid question of the day - would it have been easier to repair the top of the cage instead of building a new chassis? I've never done one from scratch so my inexperience is evident.

Dave, I could have done that, but there was more than one problem. The pe 4-link plates didn´t fit at all and the space inside was to narrow for the seat.

Fixing these issues will probably take more time and will for sure affect the final result..so I decided to build a new chassis. ;)

The pullies was custom made for me and I used them as a master for casting.

Here is a pic of the resin product.

The belt are made from 5 layers of thin ImagePerfect vinyl. The belt is just an experiment...so time will show if it works..

It´s alive!!

 

After some accurate measurement I decided to build a jig for the new chassie. I think thats the right way for the best result.
