holes drilled and then enlarged with a countersink drill bit.

 

rust killing epoxy base coat.

 

temp is a little low so it is taking a long time to go off.

Mmm been trying to read the rules and regs.

Interesting. Current first read looks like I might have to fit a Cat. Replace the fibre glass and carry 190kg of ballast. Ok I can go up to 1400cc as well.

I think I will need to sit down with someone who knows the rules and the language.

Next jobs are reinstating a metal floor. And redo the seat mounting frame. Then tie the rear beam into the rollcage frame a big more.

Gaskets arrive from Guessworks on Friday and today I went to put them in my gasket box.

Did not really need to order any.

Damn there is a Minimum weight limit for the class. and my car is 100kg too light.

 

and I was thinking of some nice light weight aero parts but it looks like they will need to be cast Iron!

 

oh well onward and upward.

Well took a day off work as I need to change the front fog like and a side light on the Suzuki.

To do either of these jobs needs the front bumper to be removed.
Not been off since it was bipuilt in 2007. So just about every threaded item broke. Fun.

But after a day praying about with all that I had further thoughts on the new boot floor.

Steel going in as the car is too light for the class anyway.

Just thought I would pop up a photo of an old Skool rear lock out lever.

What's it weighing in at and what series are you looking at racing in?
