I now have the headers painted and weathered, and have just started doing the rear brake calipers. I need some more hardware to bolt the engine in place before installing the headers, and I still have to attach AN fitting to the oil pump to. Pics show the headers mocked up and with the body in place. Also got the front discs painted to match the rear discs.

Cheers guys.

 

here are pics of the rear end with the hubs, discs, calipers and lines. the calipers were made from chemiwood, and detailed with various parts. just need to get some more hardware to bolt it on to the chassis, along with the studs. next up, the front calipers.

Here are the calipers for the front brakes. They have been made the same way like the rear calipers. The last couple of pics show the rear end mocked up to the chassis.

I'm not familiar with chemiwood.  Is it similar to Renshape?  Is it offered in various densities?  Do you carve out your items?

I like the 'cast metal' look of your chemiwood parts.  Is that part of the product texture or your paint?

Thank you all for the kind words.

 

Chemiwood is the same as Renshape Ted. It does come in various densities and I carve, shape or machine the material depending on what I am creating. Harder density is better for machining. The rear calipers are made from this grade, but the fronts are made from less dense chemiwood, hence the texture.

 

I made the steering wheel today, using the same method as John (Teresi) did for his Pro mod Daytona, (If you haven't seen this superb model, check it out) . It is just placed in at the moment, until I have completed the dash panel. As you can I have started on it, with a rev limit light done, and a rev limit guage to machine up. The instruments facias are from Slicks.

Thanks John, thats what keeps this great hobby going, and we all continue learning new methods.

 

The engine is now bolted in place, with the headers, and scratch built drive shaft. The back axle is also bolted in place along with the wheelie bar.

 

Next up is to finish the oil and fuel tanks.

Thanks Bill.

 

Not much of an update, but the tanks are now in, the headers have been finished off and I have re-done the wheelie bar as I wasn't happy with it. I have reduced the angle and shortened it. Just waiting for the wheels and tires, but I have started redoing the tubs out of sheet ally.
