Rear damper mounts ended up a lot neater on the new arms too:

Is the spaceframe going to get painted/powdercoated or does it need a rebuild so often there is little point in wasting paint?

It'll get painted, same as before - although it might go a nice dark metallic red this time if we can wangle a bit of sponsorship for the paint :D
If not it's flat tractor red again...

So long as you don't give it an ex-TVR guy to paint it's surprising how well modern epoxy systems stand up to abuse, and as the interior tubes/panels  tends to get a coat of sacrificial zinc first, the tubes stay in good condition even where the paint gets taken off anyway.

And sorted. Could just do with finding some wheels with another inch of offset, unfortunately the only thing around are from compomotive and speedline, and they weigh a damned ton  :(
Might have to be DIY'd wheels again :D





Other side got welded up tonight too, just a little delay as we've got a Mattserati in the workshop for dampers/springs/diffs replacing and setting up.

Car going back together and shiny new discs - clearance on the caliper is a little risky mind...

That's an odd looking disc - it's almost bike like. What is the benefit of the wavy outside edge?

Weight reduction for a given disc size, clears mud and water from the disc surface faster, stops the pads glazing over if there's some oil/etc, that gets stuck between the disc and pad and burns from the heat. Slightly easier to modulate in slippy conditions, also tends to give a little more initial 'bite' on the brakes.
Most importantly, it helps clear any buildup of rocks/mud away from the caliper body so they don't get jammed between the caliper and wheel and rip the caliper off.

Unfortunately it also wears pads and discs faster, and if you don't make sure the pad surface always goes right to the edge of the discs (all brake pads vary slightly in tolerance) then you have to fit new discs with new pads as they'll vibrate like mad on the ridges left on the old discs.

Not being too happy with the temporary air inlets for the manifold and supercharger, and having a spare bit of billet from another project, Ed make a small mountain of swarf today and replaced the manifold one whilst I was swearing at the cam sensor (I had to make a plug for it, because we couldn't get a connector to fit it for love nor money):

Looking at early January, bit of a test run, fix any issues, then to the dyno for mapping, some testing days at curborough, etc, then a quick strip down and paint for the frame and panels before the first event, once we're happy with everything else.

Well, there's a fair bit of time and effort in them, and you only get one chance to protect them - once they've been built and exposed to the car you can never get them good enough to do, so a little bit more time and money to have them coated and protected before assembly never hurt.
The anodising is slightly uneven but I went as thick as I could on the machined parts for the purpose of abrasion protection (the anodised layer being far harder than the underlying aluminium, has far better wear and tear properties)

Ed's been busy again, yep, he's started chopping the front out now the rear's going back together. May as well have built a new car....
New front cross going in that mates to the beam stiffening bars we added a few years back, and is higher to clear the new pedals and fuel tank/battery/PAS which have been shifted backwards for better weight distribution:


New mounts for pedal box going on:



And some new floor bars, to mount the seat belts clear of the new bulkhead and help prevent anal insertion of the various large rocks we always seem to land on.

I think I would be raising the suspension a bit and adding a skid plate since the idea of concentrating on my line as a rock sticks itself where it's not wanted just brings tears to the eyes.

Well, there is a rather thick (4mm) aluminium plate under there, and it's 6082 so pretty strong stuff. However, we have landed on a couple of rocks before and split it in two right under the middle of the seats, and upon inspection, there was a big dent and a split that just touched the bottom of the fibreglass seat too, which is why there's a steel bar behind it now too

Haven't posted much on the buggy lately - mainly due to family health issues and struggling with an infection myself for a few weeks - in fact, I've been at home today as I made myself ill again working too long last night, hey ho, I'll stop being stupid one day, maybe.
That aside, I'll get some pictures tommorow, honest - but the new floorpan is fitted up, Ed's made a new front bonnet and bulkhead, pipework/bulkhead fittings have gone in, new seat mounts are there, there's some more things to press and light up on the dashboard, ECU has been mounted, new brake/clutch reservoirs have been adapted and fitted, altered the wiper system so it autoparks and there's 2 speeds (sound trivial, but if you're giving someone a ride and they park the wipers right in your line of sight it's quite a distraction!).
Airbox prefilters are sorted and are going in tommorow to keep the larger items - grass/leaves/wasps*, etc, out of the cooling system and save the engine filters having to deal with 'em, got some more to do on the chassis loom as there's some spare wiring/connectors going in for future upgrades and because we're probably switching to a different PAS pump sometime in the year, so connectors for that are going in just in case.
Still plenty left to do on the hydraulics side but it's mainly just straight runs of pipe to the bulkhead connectors for the brakes, and a new fuel line.

Modified the lathe last week so we can spin 16" wheel rims in there - just - so we can make some new wheels much easier than before by skimming them true after welding them up.

Not far away (yes, I know, we've said that for 2 years - you're more than welcome to come and help if that's a problem :D )
 It's even sat on it's own four wheels again


*Yes, wasps - the roof scoop draws from the high pressure area at the windscreen. Anything that hits the windscreen tends to go upwards. Including swarms of wasps, on more than one occasion. You try cleaning an airfilter full of injured and/or REALLY pissed off wasps)

Finished off some last bits of dashboard wiring today (few extra's been added, launch control settings, etc), and tidied all the wiring behind it into neat runs, switched idiot lights out for LED's (which then required ripping them to bits and trying to add diodes and ballast resistors in the case of the alternator charging light....good fun trying to solder them in a space about 8mm x 4mm.....lots of swearing, some burnt fingers.



Anyway, kettle went on, coffee came out, shiny lights:



As promised, new front bonnet, ignore the steel box section, it was just there to hold the front square whilst welding as it's fairly thin aluminium, it's on hinges now and will get a gas ram lifter fitted to secure it, much easier to work on if you break down away from the service area then.



And new floorpan is on, new bulkhead, seat mounts, pedals, etc:

Nope, still not running

However, the last parts are made/fabricated and it's going back together!
We decided whilst we were sorting wheels out, to swap the front hubs and make some new custom ones - cue groans at the back over more delays - it's not as bad as it seems though this time, honest.
Decided to do it so we can run off-the-shelf alloys at the front similar to the rears, instead of the custom steel wheel - we've found some the right size and fairly tough which are a similar weight to the steels.
So, rather than being even more work, it actually just means we only need to machine up two aluminium hubs, rather than making wheel centres, machining true in the lathe and then jigging and welding wheels up like we usually do, so it wasn't much more work than making the wheels. And if we ever need more wheels there's off the shelf ones handy.

Anyway, bit of work on the lathe got it this far after roughing out and getting everything to the point where they can go on and be tried (we might lighten them a bit more later after proving them out).



Cap/cover was made for the outer bearing - seals the grease in, dirt out, and also acts as a guide for the wheel during changes to make them easier, as well as being the new centre cap to stop dirt getting in the wheel centres (stock plastic ones don't last)



The most important upgrade of them all - promo/workshop mug upgrade, vital performance item, knocks 10 seconds off the 0-StrongEnoughToTarnishTheSpoon time for most good teabags:



The brake bells got made up to match the hubs (couldn't bolt the bells straight to the hubs otherwise there wasn't access to the rear to press the wheel studs in):



However, then we got some free 4-pot calipers that needed some seals and damage repairing, so we decided to use those for the extra pad area to reduce surface temperatures (the old pad wasn't much bigger than a large stamp, so with 350+ horsepower it might have been asking a bit much).
That required new, slightly larger diameter discs.....so...wavy fronts? Wavy fronts.



Still need a good 1.5mm chamfer around the inner and outer edges - but in the metal:



And mounted with the calipers:



Just waiting for those and the re-machined/re-built front end bits to come back from the platers after a quick zinc dip now and that's it, fabrication finished. Bolting everything back together and pressing 'go' time.

What paint do you use on the calipers, and are wavy discs road-legal ?

When are you aiming for your/its next outing ?

The calipers are anodised from the factory, they do painted/powdercoated finishes for road cars but they don't last long off-road.

The discs aren't technically legal for a garage to fit as replacements as they don't meet reg 90 for replacement parts - same as larger discs or 2-piece discs in upgrade kits, or most uprated pads/drilled discs, etc - but there's nothing to stop you fitting them and using them yourself.
When I ran them on the 306 I had to provide an engineers report for both the brake system and the wishbones in order to get the insureres to cover them as modifications. But for the 4wd cars we've built with them they've gone through SVA with no issues - as then they're technically the standard part then.

Few more bits on the rolling scrapheap, engine loom finally completely finished (changed connector on the end for a better one):



Wilwoods fitted to the rear (sold 2 of the old sets of calipers after rebuilding them, so shiny new ones!)



Remains of the 306 got butchered for it's column spline and the poor old 106 wheel finally got relegated (and now has been butchered for it's female spline...)




And I cracked on with making the barn door/rear wing:



The ribs for which are being 3D printed by a nice guy on another forum:

Well, you'll have to let us know where and when it'll be in action so we can aim to see it for real

I hope you have a similar front wing planned. Somehow understeer at high speed on the loose doesn't appeal very much to me!

There's actually quite a large front splitter hidden under the forward edge of the bonnet, I don't think I've taken a picture that shows it though.

There are front wings planned too, mind. And vented mudguards...
