    Stephan, Glad the design worked out for you. The pieces turned out beautiful, excellent work on your part! Where did you get your throttle cable? I like the termination on yours better than what I did for mine.

    LSA SLC Build Log

    Rob, Here is another option for you. I purchased the mounting brackets from Pantera Electronics and tig welded a bar of aluminum to them. I was able to utilize two existing tapped holes on the SL-C uprights to mount the bracket to. Sorry, I do not have a print either, fabbed it up on the fly...

    Once again life has gotten "in the way" of progress on the SLC. Trying to commit one night a week to working on it again soon. In the meantime, my brother and I built a paint booth in my shop using professional quality fans (11,000 CFM total) and paint booth filters so that I can paint his...

    Had a request for my throttle pedal cable linkage design so posting it up here for all to share. There is a design for a 3D printed version and one machined from aluminum. All the required bronze bushings, fasteners, cable, etc. are spec'ed out on the BOM of the assembly prints for each version.

    Mark, I purchased my rear tow eyes from McMaster Carr. They are female threaded lifting eyes that I painted red. They are only available in course threads so I had to change out the pivot fasteners. And yes, tie down points for trailering are what I “plan” to use them for, hopefully nothing else.

    Quick updates on progress: 1) rear wheel alignment in the wheel wells has been addressed via plan "B" The adapters I made moved the wheels to far outboard and they were going to interfere with the bodywork during extreme suspension travel. Plan "B" was to install spacers in place of all the...

    The only reasons I can think as to why my rear wheels are not centered is two fold: 1) I am keeping my controls arms centered as much as possible on there mounts. My rod ends are extended equally on each side. 2) I set my clam as far forward as possible to line the wheel wells up with the...

    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    There are always ways to take your young children along with you. Back when our daughter was four this is how we got around. She was the queen of every poker run we went on. Everyone fell in love with her. Not sure you can fit a sidehack on the Hyabusa though.

    Side tracked on another project again. Sometimes I hate being handy, I get asked to help with so many things outside of my own. I am painting grill surround off of my nephews truck (Santa brought him a fancier front end) that my brother is building into a stereo cabinet to hang on his living...

    Since I have not posted recently: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone. I hope Santa brought you everything your project needs. I am getting shop time again in my life, that makes for a much happier me. Recently I applied two layers of fiberglass matt and polyester resin to the...

    On to tonight's progress. I decided that since the rear clam is now installed I wanted to install my rear window vents to see how that is going to look. I have the fiberglass vents (not the carbon versions) and plan to graft them into the rear clam so they appear to be a part of the original...

    Some more rear clam pictures: rear wheels are too far rearward, tires are perfectly centered in front clam I plan to make mounting brackets to move the control arm pivots points 5/8" forward on the chassis to remedy this.

    Wow, where has the time gone? Last time I worked on my SL-C to any significant degree was back in June this past summer. From that point the summer got very busy for us and I did not spend any time out in my shop. In August my wife after substitute teaching for the past 15 years accepted a...

    Looks beautiful Joel. It is such a shame that all your craftmanship will be hidden from view by the body. At least you have it documented well here for all to enjoy!

    Damnit Joel, now I want to upgrade to Tillett seats!! I thought I had put that extra expenditure to bed long ago. No, seriously, nice work as always, keep it up!! Good, solid install. I may have just missed it in your video but did you add large fender washers or steel plates on the...

    OK, took free time today (that has been in very limited supply lately) to at least drool over my SLC a little and take some measurements. I will hopefully be back to working on it in a much smaller schedule that before starting later next month. I will follow up to everyone on here with a...

    Adrian, As soon as I have a free moment I will get out to my shop and get you the requested measurements. I have been very busy lately so it may take a few days to a week to get back with you (I have not touched my SL-C since June).
