    Storing bodyshell?

    Thanks for the quick answers. i'll go on your advice Jimmymac, and make a wooden frame. But i'll screw it up into the sealing. See attached principle. roofplates with welded in jointnuts that will work as anchors in the roof. Then i will weld a nut onto an threaded rod and that rod will...

    Storing bodyshell?

    I need advice on how to store the bodyshell. More specific the front and rear clips. They are currently resting on the chassi, but since i lack the extra space in my garage to simply just put them on a empty space on the floor, i need some more creative solutions. Apparently hanging them on...

    Rear trailing arms and upright geometry?

    Been a long time now since i last posted here. I'm trying to get the rear suspension together on paper before i manufacture it. What i can't figure out is how to handle the type of suspension. Should i see the trailingarms as an extension of the wishbones and thereby make them equal length...

    Colorcode GT720 mirage orange?

    As topic, what colorcode is the Ford GT720 mirage in orange? The color would really make a GT40 replica for me :) Seen CAV version in orange too that i think is the same color. Any insight here?

    3d CAD tool, wich is the best suited?

    Tried Designspark Mechenical yesterday, it was somewhat easy to understand and use, but i didn't feel like it was strong enough. I will do a trial period with solidworks i believe, and probably end up using that system instead. (Want to run spaceclaim, but it is sooooo expensive!)

    3d CAD tool, wich is the best suited?

    Hi, i'm about to start my project soon and want to be a step ahead and get started with the design of the frame and suspensionparts asap. This means i'm looking into what programs are the easiest to draw tubular frames in and also engine parts and suspension parts. Best i found so far that...

    realistic build cost?

    as you can see in my budget i didn't spend 25k£ in the driveline for example. that's because it's easier to register a selfbuilt car in Sweden with a modest amount of power. The engine will likely get the "power" treatment in form of heads and headers when the car is completed. Thus expanding...

    realistic build cost?

    XE.com says 1GBP = 11,5129 SEK. TSC price is 39995 + VAT and shipping and paint and glue. 39995*1,2(VAT)*11,5129=552550 SEK +30-40000 SEK for paint and 1600 SEK for glue and maybe 10000 SEK for shipping. that is close to 600´000 SEK with my math atleast, or am i thinking it wrong?

    A TSC build Pro package(complete with every last nut and washer) will cost you 552´000 SEK with tax + shipping and paint = 600´000SEK + So no, you are wrong there Scott, sry. Besides, the Swedish legislations dictate that the welding have to be inspected before paint. That means i would have...

    realistic build cost?

    I think i've got a clearer picture now that i used the template from Mike(added ALOT of posts to it thou) and the cost is now revised to 38K£ instead of 35K£. This is however with most of the parts bought finished. I can save alot of money by doing some items myself and thereby cut into the...
