Things already on the list:
1. Under-dash panel that holds relays (already made)
2. Steering wheel, I have an old sierra one somewhere
3. Handbrake surround trim (not sure how to radius this!)


CosKev3 - 11/3/18 at 04:30 PM

Looks good

Nut covers on the bolts going threw the top of the hub if the sphere can fit in there,
And are the front indicators far enough out?


CosKev3 - 11/3/18 at 04:39 PM

Oh and have you locked off the brake bias bar?


mackei23b - 11/3/18 at 05:59 PM

The lower dash edge deeds to be 19mm radius, unless it is padded.

Cheers

Ian


Davedew - 11/3/18 at 06:24 PM

Nut covers on roll bar mountings behind seats.
Lock nut on top link of front suspension needs covering.
Front indicators definitely look to far in.

Nice build, be good to see another one on the road

Well spotted,yeah needs reflectors as those lights haven't got them built in


mikeb - 11/3/18 at 07:47 PM

I think I bought reflectors they must be in th tool box.
Bias bar and stickers. Indicators are so close to 400mm but r boarder line

It will fail on them if they don't meet the requirements


Davedew - 11/3/18 at 09:17 PM

Canít tell from the pics, but have you got the offset mushroom inserts in the uprights with the hole nearest the front?
Needed to increase caster angle and help with self entering.


MikeR - 12/3/18 at 09:47 AM

The bolt on the exhaust clamp - can it be reached by a radius tester?

Otherwise looks good.


mikeb - 12/3/18 at 10:37 AM

I'll spin the inserts round, the whole if facing towards the back. Did it make much difference to self centering


zx12r dug - 12/3/18 at 10:42 AM

Hi nice looking car.bottom of the shocks I would cover.Around the exhaust hole maybe some trim.Not many people have passed with dominator headlights.The metal trims that you step over to get in are they radias enough.on my builds I needed to put some type of padding under the handbrake cover as it feels sharpe if lent on.Is the fuel cap tethered and has the nozzle restrictor inside.Nosecone indicators are measured from the widest part of the body my testers put a long bar on the floor only then I realised he was measuring from the width of the rear where as I measured to the edge of the front arch.Any pics of the engine bay we can look at.Not nit picking mate just best be safe than sorry.Ive gone through 5 tests and all testers have different views on what's right all's you can do is prepare the best you can get your fail sheet if you get one and crack on.Good luck

Has Your fog light got the correct marking on it?


mikeb - 12/3/18 at 07:35 PM

Fog light has a E mark on it, i think that is all it needs.
Fuel filler doesn't need to be tethered if it is lockable with a key... i think!

kingster996 - 12/3/18 at 07:37 PM

Looks good.

Remember that indicators are 400mm from widest part of car which will be the rear arches.

Edit - looks like that was spotted by zx12r dug too

That's only the case if the key can't be removed from the filler cap once it's off the car?

If the key will come out of the cap when the cap is open it needs to be tethered


mikeb - 13/3/18 at 01:22 PM

You might be right with regard the fuel filler tethering, not sure how to do it other than drilling a whole in the T bit of cap and tethering to one of the mounting bolts

Needs to have a F or B marking also.

Also check its dead straight to rear, both left/right and up/down

Has it got a nut/bolt on the end internally?

Most I've seen use a chain connected to the end of the cap with a big washer or summat in the filler neck that won't fit out

Not sure what the inner part of your cap is like but I attached a piece of brass cable to the cap with a loop crimp attached to a bolt on the cap and then attached the brass cable to a loop of wire dropped into the tank that stops it being pulled out. Also easy to fit and remove if you want to after.





Also, how much movement does the handbrake have as it looks quite high?


chris_smith - 13/3/18 at 10:55 PM

Have you got a warning label for the brake fluid? Have you got chassis stamped and separate vin plate, couldnít see in engine pics?


mikeb - 14/3/18 at 06:30 AM

Still need to make the manufacturers plate. Brake fluid res has sticker. Thanks


mikeb - 14/3/18 at 06:33 AM

I have a rad fan switch on the dash that doesnít say what it is. Will this need a label?
