Well the post man was good to me and dropped off a parcel today
And I have to thank my wife, the tyres are a xmas present
So you can't really see it because it's still clear but the undertray is cut and fitted, still needs a bit of tidying but the bulk is done. I wasn't able to utilise it in the manner I hoped - you know how you can't be certain until you get the thing in your hands - to fasion front and rear cowlings under the frame, but it is a good fit inside. it sits just under the upper horizontal line of the main body, the bottom of the window. A bit of lexan across the front and rear gaps should finsish things of nicely. Then its the interior and I think it's going to be based on the pro-line part above and the idea is to mount it to the rollcage so as you put the lid down it sits on top of the undertray. I might even fashion some kind of flexible seal - i was thinking a strip of foam draft excluder or something lke that. I alos hope to mount a fan on the rear section, with a little scale mesh over it so that its visible under that rear open bit of rollcage.
I need to trim a little bit off the rear engine cowl so the suspension has full travel and I need to take about 1cm off the front body mounts as it's sitting lower now - I prefer the line. A certain someone has poked the beehive in my brain and I think I'm going to look nto the hood shape over the weekend.
The tyres. Hhhmmmm the tyres. Some times I look at it from certain angles and think "sh*t that looks good". Sometimes, although not often I look at it and think thetyres look like some king of fetish donut.
The thing just look real mean sometimes, more like a Wraith type vehicle than a Class 1. I'll be honest it isn't quite how I imagined it would look - but I like it. And I'm really enjoying the build - the feedback is great so thanks again
Anyway here's the stuff you've really all been waiting for, the pictures...
in no particular order.
