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

So, after a 2 and a half year hiatus filled with blood, sweat and many exams, I figured y'all due an update on the old Legacy project... well here it is!!

First of all big ups, kudos and much respect to those of you hardy enough to still be following. Things have changed a great deal and I've grown both professionally and as a person. I've now graduated from uni after 5 years of full time study with my life on hold, however now I'm again working full time I can get back on with both that and this project (as well as all the others I have on the go...)

My first move was to take on the lease for a workshop. I now have 300 sq m (3230 sq ft) I share with another guy, so plenty of space for my stuff. Legacy has a special place in a 3x6m (10x20ft) party marquee I've set up inside the shop. Then I scored some decent pallets to build a few benches and get set up. After moving my other projects in (a convertible I'm restoring and a little scooter I've rebuilt), I could start organising the space and I think what I have now works well, so I can get on with this build up!!

I finished prepping the body and panels and had them epoxied, repaired and then about 4 coats of high build primer were applied to give a good coverage. It was then back to my shop so I can carry out some additional fit out and finalise a bunch of different detail items, and also do some of the messy work required before it is actually painted in colour.





I rolled the rear arches before going to the paint shop, just for clearance and to give a very subtle flare to the edge...









Choice of painter is very much based on the other work he does, mainly classic European and American cars and trucks; has some pretty interesting projects on the go there too! Here's mine in the booth for the first time in a while...



Fresh primer...

Then it was back to mine on the trailer so I could pull everything out of it again and put it up on a special trolley I made...





If it looks high up that's because it is; sits about 3ft up so I have space underneath to paint the floors. This will happen once the weather warms up a bit... then it will be in with the gas tank and rear suspension for final fit.



Told you she has her own space inside : )

I'm relocating the washer bottle from the engine bay to make space for turbos and since I'm not running the factory air box that seemed like a good place to put it. I got a cube shaped 2 pump bottle off a (SHHHH! Nissan....) with long neck and it fits perfectly!! I cut a hole in the inner fender for the neck (I had to cut this one off but it was munted anyway) and for some fixings in the chassis rail, and now just deciding how I'm going to wire them... dual front or front and rear (since I deleted the rear washer bottle to make space for speaker boxes)..?



I also fitted up the dual remote oil filter kit I got from Summit Racing. Pretty decent kit and it takes the nice big filters I wanted : ) It's attached to the frame rail with M10 stainless hardware. It needs a couple of -10AN lines made up to connect with the take off from the original filter location on the other side of the bay, so I have a bunch of 90 degree fittings and some stainless hose to do this but kinda need to the motor in the bay first and for that I need to fabricate some engine mounts!!




Well that's all for now, I'm just pottering really whilst waiting for the weather to get better, 10 C is no fun to be working in and my job is bad enough : (

Wonder what engine he's using. I thought that the H6s didn't respond to well to boost. Of course some people have made some amazing cars with that motor, it just took a hell of a lot of know how.
