o.k guys, i know it's been a while since a progress report, it's that time where you do very little , but takes forever to complete. finally got all the glass in, got the windscreen off ebay £50 brand new still with sticker on it.
i've almost finished work on the audio install, have to take some more piccys, got a centre console which houses a 7 inch wide screen, dvd, sat nav etc, might give you guys a few ideas on what can be achived.
i've re-designed parts of the cooling system, header tank was'nt high enough, causing the pump to get an air lock, and pushing the water out when the engine was turned off. A lot of the problem is caused by the heater being higher than the header tank, maybe something for other builders to watch out for ( shame the elec heaters are so crap). got a new rad cap from demon tweeks ( thermo cap) very good indicator, can screw straight on to a rad or header tank, good idea if you want a standard interior, or back up therm??
started work on the roll cage...... lots of stress and broken fingures, it's a standard omp for a porka, the rear fits well, but the front is an arse, think i'll have to leave the front out, any one doing a rs, looking for a roll cage front, give me an e-mail.
got a friend with a mini ( really small ) wind tunnell, stuck a model (remote control) 911 in it, see what you mean about the cooling problem at speed, and down force / up force problem, ( turned upside down at 115 mph!!!!) definately have to baffel the engine to seperate the two halves upper and lower as in a porsche, and get rid off the heat at the same time - got a few ideas, did involve a hack saw and the bumper but looks pretty good, but maybe not to everyones liking, i'll get some pics of it.
anywayz on with the pics!!!!!
