framenew.jpg
This is how the frame is now.
i have to make two of them so start building this week full speed ;)

Also did some work on the engine and blower.
Now i have some real blowerbelts so i want to have some ribbed pulley's
Hard to find on this scale so build it myself.
first did it from styreen rod like this.

blowerbelt.jpg

Well i did not like it the ribs are to big so think think think ??? ::) ;D
Then my eye saw this.

A screwdriver.
This drivers have ribbed grip, so i cut a piece off and with a mill i made a hole in the middle.

And this is how it looks on the blower.

And on the engine.

I think it looks ok.

 

Happy modeling

Hello,

Thanks for the great response, did do some work on the rod this week.

First did the sprkplug cabels.
P1100025_zps8427e8da.jpg
The distributor is made from aluminum.
I wanted the cabels to have real boots i,t did worked but is a hell of a job so small (wonder how they make it ).
kabel_zps31304c12.jpg
kabel1_zpsd36326a6.jpg
And the result only put some wire looms but thats for later.

The Suspension.
I want to make the rod as realistic as possible so i ordered real Coil Over Shocks and use the hub from a Corvette.
koashow063kl.jpg
This is the original suspension.
susp_zpsfa872f6d.jpg
This are the parts for the coil over.
susp1_zps6eb0ea18.jpg
And the finished product (and it works :)  ).
susp2_zps83a5da45.jpg
I made the suspension connection from steel rod. ( see the yellow arrows).
suspdry_zps0401fdde.jpg
This are the parts i made and did a dryfit to see if it al fit.
suspdry1_zps6b9623cf.jpg
suspdry2_zpsc5304197.jpg
And here with the brake disk,now only make the lower control arm (yellow arrow) and some small parts then take it apart and finish the other side and make the front suspension.

see you

Dirk

Thanks guys for the nice response,

 

Ok did some work on the front axel.
I first wanted to make the axel from styreen rod, but than i found an old axel in my sparebox (safe's me some work :)  ).

 frontaxel_zpse2f5c943.jpg
Well here it is , this is a dryfit just to look if the size is right.

Than i had to make the brackets (i think you call them brackets) i made them from 0,5 mm styreen.
frontaxel1_zps696be4b4.jpg
Was tough to get them the same.

frontaxel2_zps8a8a7ebf.jpg
Here i fit them to the axel, i put a small piece of styreen (see the black arrow) between it to keep the distance for the rod ends.

Fit the rod ends, i put some bolts and nuts i like to put a detail to this rod so it will look right.
frontaxel3_zps87edf083.jpg

Place the rod's.
frontaxel5_zpsb195493a.jpg
All this parts are metal or aluminum.
frontaxel4_zpsd70e14ef.jpg

frontaxel10_zps53f47fba.jpg
Also place the front brake's (the arrow shows the place where the brake caliper will be fit)still have to masure where it will be placed, so i kept the plate long.

Here a little dryfit (i can't fit it jet waiting for some parts) .
frontaxel7_zps2fc07aaa.jpg
frontaxel9_zps77a1a1e9.jpg
From top also did some work on the interior.

frontaxel11_zps0e54b46f.jpg
And here are the customers to look how the work is done  ;) ;) :) :).

See you guys next time.

Dirk

Hi,

Well the chassis is coming along well, first tell you how i made the brake caliper
frntbrake_zps0ca5b43f.jpg
This are brakedisks from an Toyota MR2 model now i only need the calipers (purple arrow).
So the disk had to go. (black arrow).
frntbrake1_zps8d58576c.jpg
Here i put the two parts together the only thing i had to do was making space for the disk.
frntbrake2_zps16448bfe.jpg
And here the final diskbrake.

Also worked on the front four bar link suspension.
frontsusp_zpsfcedc9e7.jpg
First drill the holes for the rod ends.
frontsusp4_zps410f6481.jpg
Fit the rod ends to the bars.
frontsusp3_zpsb990d33e.jpg
It even have the adjust nuts on it (real small).
frontsusp12_zps3ab593da.jpg
And there you go the first side (dryfit).
frontsusp11_zps241b4c0b.jpg
frontsusp9_zps1171c234.jpg

Ok now do the other side then i can paint the chassis and fit everything>

The chassis is coming along fit the front suspention and finished the rear suspention to
Some photo's

shockmount1_zpsc69e5aeb.jpg
First draw the suspention struts (i think you call them like this :-/ ? ).
It's made from 3 pieces off 0,5mm styreen.
shockmount2_zps64ed5b1e.jpg
Here it's mounted to the frame, still need to do some work to get it right.
rearsuspention1_zps00a430f1.jpg
Finished the right rearsuspention to.
finalsusp3_zpsa6346e9a.jpg
finalsusp2_zps44f5f65d.jpg
Here i put everything together (dryfit) with staples this will be replaced with nut and bolts.
finalsusp1_zps1c52fc5a.jpg
finalsusp_zpsd4007adc.jpg
And put the engine to see if the rear wheels align with the axels to the gearbox.
Everything fit nicely so now just sand the chassis paint it and then put it together.

See you next time

frontsusp14_zps17f7d41a.jpg
No dryfit now.

Put the engine in.
framefin1_zpsd4cbee7e.jpg
