Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

While the lads did stuff that requires more skill than I have, I fitted scoops, rear grille, spoiler and tail lights.

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

Next trip down I fitted the front lights and covers, hinges and striker plates and, after a lot of fiddling, got the driver's door on and lined up. Lads have finished the access panel that holds the washer bottle.

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

so is this a different rear sub frame to the one that was on it when the body was painted?
Looks more like the MKII sub frame, very nice.

does anyone make a T44 to go in there?

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

The initial subframe was just a temporary setup to hold things in place. The rear subframe is, as you state Ryan, a MKII style to hold the MKII rear bodywork. I believe Holman used to make a T44 - not sure if they still do. Others on here will likely know.

Good to hear your car is back in progress again.

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

To think people pay millions for a picture of a bunch of sunflowers in a vase when they could hang one of your exhausts on their wall instead. A real work of art beautiful.

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

Some more progress.

Passenger door fitted; door hardware on; inside opener on; door cutouts done; jackstraps nearly in; rear clip retainer back on; and, now that Andrew's car and the SSK are gone there was some room to have a play. Propped the wheels in the arches to see what the finished product might look like (as you do). Not too bad.

Looking very good Brian.

Just realised it was a year ago we met at LMC. Bastille day today!

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

Indeed it was Ian. Well remembered... Whoops - Carmen has just chipped in and reckons it was a week earlier.

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

Gradually gathering bits and pieces together. In fact not really very much more to get apart from clutch and radiator. Fuel tanks started being fabricated last week.

Fuel selector valve looking good; Koni 8212s (not sure if I should paint the springs black?); Headers and mufflers ceramic coated; u-joints for steering shaft and shift linkage have arrived, as has a NOS voltage regulator; steering column trial fitted; and roundel lights modified and trial fitted on some scrap glass.

Fuel tanks almost done, with senders fitted and non-return flaps. Filler tubes ready for the install.
