Because Racecar!

When the needle is straight up is probably max boost?

Lol, figured that would generate a reaction... It's so the 0 is in the same place as the others! Just an initial idea, might go in straight up or with the 0 horizontal.

And nope, it's not a racecar!

Started on the carbon panel for the gauge. Did a quick lay-up earlier...




Materials and flat boards as molds (pre-waxed)




4 layers of 200gsm carbon dryweave + 4 layers 600gsm woven glass cloth + 2 cardboard stiffeners (also provide outline).




Weighing out polyester resin. 2.5 times total cloth weight.






Lay up complete.




JUST clamped...




...notice the thickness (and gap).


A few hours later...



...and even the hole is outlined well. Came from the card templates sandwiched between the cloth.




Not bad, and that's the back! I'll de-mold it tomorrow and trim it.

Meh, the scales are just dirty from sitting under the bench for a year... they still work perfectly!

Gauge position will be where ever it ends up I guess.

Finally, an UPDATE!!! : D

The Suby is in a new home and looking happy. A little bit of work got done over this summer, and would still be progressing had another little project not popped up... now I'm hurrying to finish that before uni starts again soon!!

Anyhoo, this should serve as a tantaliser. Body still in primer but I decided to do some engine bay smoothing before paint...



I also built one of the heads. You can check that out here;

More to come : )

Cheers, Kramer
