Southern GT #48

Eddy McClements

Attacked a large sheet of 3mm steel with angle grinder and slitting disc, then used a Bosch hole saw to cut..err...holes for the master cylinders. The hole saw complained a bit, but I took it slow and used plenty of cutting fluid.




The master cylinder mounting plate will be triangulated front and rear to take the weight of a size 9 firmly planted on the brake pedal. I've yet to make the tabs at the sides which will bolt the pedal box down to the ally brackets (which will be fixed to the chassis). Throttle yet to be finalised, but will probably incorporate some adjustment of ratio (quick throttle / slow throttle) and also some adjustment of travel. Clutch pedal will have a stop, so that I don't blow-out the piston on the slave cylinder.
