Re: H Craft GT-R

Happy New Year to all my fellow builders out there.

A little progress on the cold air intakes, I welded up the bottoms into the filter housings, trimmed the engine cover closures to fit over the braces, a little bubble gasket and this should be done.





It has taken an immense amount of time and different ideas to get to this point in this area, but I'm finally happy with the result.

Re: H Craft GT-R

I did actually get to work on the window frames today, its a job thats been avoided for way to long. It was a less than perfect installation on an original car but truing to get it all to work with a GRP door is a real pain in the ass. I need to re make the quarter light to main window dividing bar, I'd cut it out years ago to make a one piece window frame for the race program, who'd have known. so I'll have to weld that back in and weld up all the holes.

Re: H Craft GT-R

So I'm trying to get enough time to punch out the last jobs on my GT-R, this one I've been avoiding for way too long. The rockers are below the aluminum floor by 3/8" or so so I want to bring the lower edge up, I'm going to split the bottom 1 1/2" off and create a joggle so that it can bolt back together once I've trimmed off the 3/8" then I'm hoping to lay up a layer of carbon over the outside of the lower rocker. At least this way if a rocker ever gets damaged its only a lower than needs repair and no paint.



I,ve cut eight inches then leave a quarter then eight inches leave a quarter and so on which keeps the two parts aligned.



Then tape the back side, just covering the cut but no more. Ill lay up GRP two inches wide to create the joggle. Once dry Ill go back and cut all the quarters" out to create the two parts.

Re: H Craft GT-R

Another project for a fellow GT-R builder Ron McCall, he wanted a big brake package for his GT-R that will mainly be a track car. I had a contact that had some used six pot AP calipers, some new old stock discs and pads and used hats, all of which needed to be put together into a package. I first had to bore the disc hats to fit onto the GM hubs, then machine up some billet caliper brackets.

Re: H Craft GT-R

I got the rockers glassed up, cut apart and the 3/8" trimmed out of the height, now just to add a layer of carbon to the lower section.
