Re: Assembling a Monocoque

Are those stampings the outer roof skin or the inner. Do you have any close up pictures of the inner? All the photos look great. I check everyday to see if you have posted anymore!

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

We also made some nice looking surrounds and floors for the monocoques, this was due to the access to this special press tool.

It is good to have these spare parts laying around if there come futures needs for rebuild, or restauration of a original car.

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

What do you mean by surrounds. Most parts I can indentify or figure out where the small parts go but where are the surrounds located?

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

The surround are located as the lower base part where the front window fit in.

On this picture there are aprox 50-60 surrounds in the trailer. I need only one for my car

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

This is very impressive. When I started my project there was ONE person in the world making authentic GT40 chassis. Now there are several. This is very good for the hobby of those interested in these cars....competition improves the breed

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

There are several people/team around the world building gt40 monocoques, either from the drawings or other methods that bring them very close to the authentic car, but from my review I can not see any competition among the builders. I belive that all of us building this juvel , have our own time schedule for when the car is ready, and have no problem seeing some other working faster.
Number one rule for me is that there is no deviation from the original drawing. And hand build all parts (no parts to buy in the shop) so speed is not actual here only the accuracy.

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

I have got lots off feedback from people that want to see the progress on this project . So here one can see some more assembly. If some of You think that the project is moving slowly forward, it is due to the fact that we build 13 cars at the same time. Then You can be most effective .

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

Here are a new bunch of pictures from building the monoqoue, one can observe a very nice roof section spotvelded together and with posts that make a perfect match to the rest of the chassis. The fit here are with less than a mm according to the drawing, The clue is to make good roof and surround press tools. Than the pieces fits together very well, as seen on some pictures here.

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

Rune,

Thanks for the close up pictures of the profile of the channel. I have been doing some research on green houses but have had a hard time finding a profile shot! The workmanship looks great, keep the pictures coming. What thickness of material are you using throughout the build?

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

Here are some pictures show the pedal box arrangement, how to do the adjustments also some pictures show the huge size on the fuel filler tubing + some other parts not welded in place yet.
This may not be of big interest for everyone, but Iknow that some do a close study to this. And it show the inside of a chassis that most people never have seen or will see in the future. Enjoy the pictures.

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

Here are some pictures that show the fuel filler tube . It is not straight forward to make this one it is lots of parts that must be welded together. Here it is. Enjoy.

Re: Assembling a Monocoque

Rune,

Do you plan on registering it in Norway, and if so how? Surely it's not just a matter of registering it in Sweden, then importing it?

Great work on the pictures, fascinating project!
