my clubman

I have had it on the road for a couple of years now
and after watching jim cowdens alloy r/f 105 build
decide to have a go at making some alloy guards
I only have basic tools so finish is not perfect wich
will match rest of the car now I need some bigger
rubber as I made them 25 mm wider

Re: my clubman

Nice, Chris. Built from plans?
I had an original 7 America and a series II Caterham long ago. Built another Locost
a few years ago as well. Lots of fun.

Re: my clubman

hello jack I had a mate building one that I tried to fit in
but was to tight so took some measurements of it and
made mine bigger as I am a fat bastard it uses pushrod
suspension with springs mounted inboard the rear has
unequal length a arms on indipendant commodore diff
motor is ls1 v8 to t5 gearbox power 260kw at the tyres
and is a little heavy compared to most clubmans at 820kg

Re: my clubman

Chris excellent work on the Clubby, I have a Westfield with a SR20 turbo.
That LS motor will rip a good skid.

I always wanted a full alloy body 7.........

love the Cobra and GT40 pics in the background. my favourite list of cars as well.

Re: my clubman

interior

Nice work Chris
Looks like you're becoming Jim's grasshopper. Before you know it, the 40's fibreglass panels will be sitting in the corner

Re: my clubman

I think you have the bug.

Well done Chris looks tidy.

Looking at your guards , did you buy a bead roller.
