I wish I had a set, dimple dies give terrific results (as this thread shows!)
Hmmm they do look like super duper Gucci ones... $795 for a set of nine though...
I was thinking of something similar with a bolt through the middle... Probably in normal EN3B or similar..

I can tell you that the quality is good and that they're very light but not sure about comfort yet! However, plenty of people on piston heads have actually commented that they are.
All the best.

He's also completely re-worked the bulkhead - really happy with it. Will be a theme of 'crossed' sections throughout the car (crossed rear brace, roof brace and door bars) so hope it will all look good together with Matt's crossed swage.
Considering whether to deseam the car as everything has been welded up from the inside - never really wanted to do this though as the external seams define the 'Mini' shape so much - also, a lot of the car is going to be quite smooth with no bumpers and different rear lights so may make the whole thing look too round? Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
Take it easy,

Just trying to sort the driving position at the moment as this determines setting out for new roll cage. Put the drawing below to the guys who are building the car and we think its going to work and not cost the earth. Got some harnesses but need to get pedal box before we can mock everything up and then get the brackets machined - wish me luck - anyone got any good ideas for pedal boxes, OBP seem pretty expensive but want all three pedals.

Are you planning on bonding a carbon roof skin into the shell? If so which adhesive are you thinking of using???

No idea how it will be fixed - was your question leading to the fact that you have to use a very specific adhesive?

Good question on the engine front as trying to sort it out at the moment. Think we're going for an R1 5JJ due to ease of wiring/tuning(?) but haven't seen many people going down this route - the 5PW seems more popular but pretty expensive. Don't know what people think generally?
If anyone had any info on good bike engine sources it would be much appreciated - seen a few go on ebay recently so that's always an option.
