The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
So i arrived at the point where it all starts coming together ! a lot of dryfitting , removing some paint but it all fits very well , always a exiting moment when you change around so much and it needs to go together dryfit of the chassis , driveshaft is in , i love the contrast between the satin black of the chassis and the matte tubs
put the engine in the chassis and dryfitted the chassis with engine
put in the first exhaust parts , carefully glued because the chrome paint is easely affected by glue ...i still need to fabricate the rest of the exhaust , i figured it was better to make it when its together and the first sections are fixed into place .. it will not be a long exhaust , maybe some small mufflers on the pipes i have now and then a short piece bending down facing the ground
loads of stuff to make ... master brake cilinder , alter one and put it on the firewall , brakelines , vacuum hoses , hoses to the throttle body and wiring to the ring just in front of the air cleaner ...brake discs etc etc
chassis is dry now and satin .. its smooth !! surface is really smooth came out better then expected since it was a gluebomb and the chassis was painted without primer and when that came of it needed a lot of work ..
the drive shaft in chrome
first pieces of exhaust pipe , the bends connect to the headers and then go trough the frame ..
time for some base paint ... the engine got a coat of blue to match the blue in the patina of the tins ...will be a tad darker with a wash .. the intake manifold and headers will be painted off course ...
the wet chassis ...its taken shortly after painting , it will dry up more matte its satin black ...lot of details will be painted like all the bolts and bars .. so more chrome will be added to the chassis later
here are 2 parts that just got a layer of chrome , the tank is the airtank and will be mounted in the trunk area behind the rear benc seat .. the airfilter will get some real material in black looking like real filter material .. not sure yet what to do with the piping (the bend pipe) leave chrome or do that black ..
thnx ...! and hmm maybe you are right .. well its now more a connection to make the transition in angle then a steering box .. i sanded so much down ... i need to get into the tech a bit more on steering i'm afraid for now i'll leave this as is and skills ... just try to put in more detail on every build and gradually you find stuff gos easyer .. i'm nowhere perfect , i see stuff that makes mine look like childsplay .. but thats the fun in the hobby > room for improvement .. i now buidl things that 2 years back i would think was impossible for me hahaha
primer time ! really brings it all together and makes it look nice instantly .. front of the x member has 2 pieces removed , i had to to later be able to line up the exhaust and place it good .. i'll try to close that up after also made some brakets to hold the fuel line and brake lines
