If thats the case they sell a thread file, you pick the pitch and file out the bur (may have to call Drive shaft shop unless you have a pitch gage out of a tap and die set.

Thanks Pook! That's the advice I need.

Nice tailights! Looks like a well-integrated, planned design. I'm biased of course....

Everything runs through the chassis like you asked. the only things visible are the connectors I had to add so you dont have to cut wires to remove a mirror or lift the rear brace, etc...
I made sure all of those that I could would be hidden by the bodywork.

Danny - Do you still have this lighted license plate frame? I had forgotten all about it until my wife asked about a light for the license plate.

I thought that might happen too. Might just opt for using the top light for the plate illumination and skip the bottom light. Now the question you've been dreading - can you run a wire for the top plate light?

Might be a little difficult to do since the car doesn't have a wiring harness and the fuel lines / coolant lines are not completed either. Plus the custom cables to connect the shifter to the linkage on the transmission and . . .

If you would like to push me around in the car I'm sure we can film some footage, although it woudn't be too exciting.

This car should be moving to Turnin Concepts in the next few weeks where they will sort out all of these areas, get the car running and dial in the suspension. They just might capture some of this action for our enjoyment.

I don't know and neither does the driver...But he was able to slide the windshield back in and the alignment stayed so...yup pretty good!

Interesting to see such long skid marks perpendicular to the guardrail. Had his wife just upped his insurance and cracked open the brake lines?

Hahahahhahaha, interesting thought... But yes, it is very nice to see it hold up to what is basically a head on impact with another steel object!! Great job with the construction PooK!!

Thanks, But I cant help to wonder what would have happened if he hit 4 foot left and the rail post became the impact point

Ive also been wondering if what I'm doing is an invitation to disaster?

I understand type A people I really do but my biggest fear is that someone get hurt or worse and I end up not being able to sleep at night....Provided the Lawyers leave me a bed to sleep on that is.

Ouch! Not the sort of burnt rubber we were hoping for...

Looks like it held up well though.

It did, The owner said the leading edge of the front bumper tube is flatted (is that a word?..LOL) but he cant find any thing else wrong, and since its under the nose fiberglass he isnt going to worry about it.
Heck he popped the windshield back in and drove it home after the Auto-X

Don't worry about that PooK... If anything, all you are offering is a rolling chassis. What the owner decides to do with it is their choice and they must take responsibility for their actions. Please don't stop building these because of the possibility of one careless person doing damage to him/herself. I want one of these and will likely purchase one in the next few years. I just need them to still be around then, PLEASE!!!!

I wouldn't worry about Pook not building these in the future. I honestly don't think that he will attempt another COMPLETE build, (running car). If I was a betting man, I'd say he'll definitely be building a roller chassis for at least a few more years. That is...until he comes up with an idea for a completely new chassis and design.

How about this for tag light and reverse light.
The reverse is a small LED fog light and even running off just a 9v battery for testing its pretty bright.
The wiring goes to the trans reverse switch so no need to run it up front.
The tag light is the frame you sent me sand blasted and blacked. Wires are hidden in the tubes and work from the tail light.
You can see the tag better than the pics, Its just that the tail and turn are on and so bright it screws up my little cell phone pics.
Work for you?
