Re: Assembling a Monocoque

I have started to produce some outer stub axles and the flywheel. It is lots of programming to do before the machines can do the job. But it started well in the lathe. I will use 930 CV joints in both end now to start with, and might change to donut later.
My work now is sanding sanding sanding all day long.

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

Finaly I got my radiator, it is the closest you can get to the original without the Marston stamped on. It fit 100% in the car. It is made from old drawings. I'm happy that these good people did a excellent job on this semi original rad.

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

Then finally the Flywheel is complete just have to do a balance job and connect the starter ring. Also made the outer stub axles complete. So now lots of work is waiting for me in the work shop.

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

I do not trust the old mecanical speedo cables , so I changed to a digital instrument, and made my own pickup for the sensor.

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

A long time since I posted here, but I have worked on the car almost every day , and now it goes to the painter, his price will ruin me, but then he give a good result hopefully.

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

I will try to copy the willment car from 2004 . I like the way it is painted. And it is not so far from 1049.

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

I made my own seats for my 40 , but when gt40 builders in Scandinavia observed this I ended up with a lot of seats. It is good to be able to help some of the mono builders, since I had the drawing and tools. But it is time consuming to make them. So I go back to the car work.
