That's one crazy roll cage! looks awesome. Nicely done and also the weldings!
Thanks man ,it will be just two or three more short tubes and its finished !!!
take it to the next step today ,suspension start up !!
need some welding there
The plan is to make the adjustable rods and paint it all !!!
And the question is !! have the Oem camber arm eccentric screw enough adjustment like it is or must go with aftermarket adjustable arms to get the wheel in the right position when the car is lowered !!
And the sweet work is at the end ,removed all now just to wash with nitro and we go to weld everything under the car that needs to be done and make some reinforcements on week spots ,yesterday I have make calculations of the Roll Cage weihgt and it say 82.5 kg not very light but now the car is strong and stiff !! I can cut all that I want
Rubbing the floor
And than I have think about that weight ....and put the car on the scale to see the result (early morning before suspension remove ,I could not resist the temptation ))
Van,trailer and the car
And Van +Trailer without the Drift Machine :-)
The result is 1020Kg car weight without (front fenders,bumpers,seat,radiator,fluids,steering wheel ,hydro brake,gas tank and battery ) few things which I think all are not over 80kg ,minus the weight reduction the front hood,doors,rear panels,rear doors and cutting some parts more !! 1100kg would be good when the car is done everything less will be great ...
Due job obligations ( no work no money for project ) the project is slow this days but still working on it ,the rust is cut of and welded new ,cut of the bits that we do not need and work on the rear suspension ,I have decided to make our own adjustable rods because its cheaper and we must wait two weeks for delivery and pay 30% customs !! they are not profi but it would do ,upper camber arms cut and make them 10mm longer I think it would be enough with eccentric screw to get the 0 when the car is lowered ,maybe I am wrong !!
And some pictures
welding and making the new rear beam
My friend in action
And things that we do not need anymore ,look at the beauty
DIY suspension parts
Wow, Nice work! Since you are working so hard, you will be ready for the first drift event this season,no doubt!!!
Keep it coming!
Polybushes are on the place ,and some work is done ,engine is out and we will prepair some more things before painting
Cleaned ,Washed and anti rust treated
Then painted and polybushed
I am gona be lowrider :-)
Now the engine is out and its time to see how the kit is looking ,getting ready for the painting
ready for some cutting and adjusting for body kit
some more welding
cutting more and fenders are on
removing the rear panels
Wide fenders on ,after thinking what to do decided that is better with screws then rivets because of replacing or fixing them
Front 30mm and 50mm wider now
With front bumper
And v8 hood
The hood is saying dude when I have that bump on me give Eaton M122 !! I have the place for it .. :-D
What paint did you chose?
and you really need to put some PSI on that engine, so find that Eaton and make some noise
Ready for the heart implant
And it is in :-)
In mean time I have buy some shoes to smoke the track 225/45/17 x 50 peaces ;-)
love the tyre stash! and the build
You know shit got real when you have 50 spare 225/45/17's tires for smoking off.
Hahaha ,yea I have 20 used ones also and some maxxis Z1 235/45/17 and federal RSR at the end Toyo R888 ,it leave me just to end the build and Drift my brain out ... it is some kind of semi pro build and the budget is on the end ,the goal is to finish the car for first race of the season in May ,later in the winter will do the adjustments and upgrades for 2015 ,this year is for drift fun and me to get used to car
As for that the cool stuff is just arrived
Made the firewall ,baterry in front of it and fuel tank in the booth
Some other preparations ,and next week is for suspension setup
Allmost ready to paint inside
And ...we will shine in few days :-)
The paint is in the progress and wednesday is time to start with suspension work ,all the wiring and preparing for the engine start end of the month will be finished I hope ,just later to fix lexan windovs and all tha final stuff
Seat position low on the floor
K-sport mounted on the raear just to see the how low we can ride
And one of the wheels I will use ,just to see how it looks ,for my taste not bad ;-)
will do the spacers along with suspension setup ..maybe redrill them to 4x
Wide body rear panels on the place ...maybe they will need some more adjustment ..going wider than that
And the new wheels in the house ,need some proper wheels for this game and there they are 8.5J et15 17 and 10J et20
Going to clean them good ,then will see what to do ,idea is to paint them white with red screws
