The first, tentative body is ready.

There are a few small problems, not serious which will be rectified easily.

It weights 2,4 kg.

The colour is from gel coat.

Thanks mates.


C.lyra : it is about 1,5 -2 mm thick. I think that with some weight off, will be flabby.

Wow....so cool [sm=thumbup.gif][sm=thumbup.gif][sm=thumbup.gif]. Very nice proportion with the tires...BRP? Is it possible to put the YANKEE tires the outside diameter is 150 -160 mm? Cause I'm thinking to put a YANKEE chassis to this beast
Cheers.

Pure awesomeness!


That must have been a great moment pulling the first body from the mould after all that work.

Default RE: British sports car, project.

The project asked for alum rims and I must do the best to it.

I bought two half alum rims from my friend Paul (Quarterscale.nl), until making mine, design the Wheelcenter (water jet cut ), a little ( ...or more ) lathe working , black chrome and gold powder coating , BRP's tires and this is my new wheels.

I'll try with full black crome and alum with black crome center and alum with gold center, ... later.
