That is great news Rich.

We could certainly host any cad files you have, I am sure that they would be of great interest to fellow builders. 8-) :)

Will drop you a pm with my details. :D

Err Wow, Wow and more Wow :D

Rich, Showing off? Please please please carry on :D :D :D

I dont have access to those machines or the abilities to use them but those pics are massively inspiring to me to up the quality and personalisation of my own build and while I may not be able to reproduce results of the same quality as yours its amazing the amount of small tips and ideas that I think I would be able to incorporate.

This goes for everyone's build pics also, sometimes its the small thing you see in a pic that inspires you to do something different or better. Hopefuly people might pick up small bits from me also even if its it how not to do things :lol: :lol: :lol:

So pls everyone SHARE THE PICCIES :D :D :D

I got Charlie at home this week till he starts new preschool next week, so provisionally Thursday 16th is a good day as he's there all day, but could also do the Wednesday depending on what time the eldest is in at 6th form, let me know how your fixed.

Cheers

Bruce

Hi Bruce yep any day is ok best to give me a call just incase something crops up.

Got one of these today its a brake compensation valve from a fiat uno,according to builders on the locost forum its iva friendly.when you press the brake pedal the piston rises and limits force to rear brakes the piston can be set by a bracket with some sort of locked of stop,as i am using disks all round this should sort out the rears locking up to soon.Hopefully it will work as the sierra ones are as rare as hens teeth,and with a bit of work could be made ajdustable :D .

I will have a think and sort out some kind of bracket

Cheers

Rich

time for some more pics

Image

it rolls :D :D :D

Image

sorting out the engine position

Image

I wanted to get the engine as far back as i could but the clutch arm was a bit tight so moved the chassis post (cant remember number) and added a cut out section in the side panel

Image

Image

engine mounts i do like a bit of over engeneering :D :D

Image

Image

Image

Image

happy with that :D :D

Image

well that every thing up to date now it may seem a fast build but its been far from that

cheers

Rich

Congratulations on reaching such a huge milestone :) :)

Rolling chassis with engine test fitted & looking great 8-)

It never ceases to amaze me, that Cossie engine looks to fit the Roaster engine bay with ease.

Really enjoying the personal touches, they will certainly inspire other folk when it comes to problem solving. :) 8-)
