Nothing too exciting in this weeks video Iím afraid as work hasnít properly started, but some explanation as to the plan for the car and the parts we
will be using to achieve those goals. Hope you enjoy 😊
Its 7pm (ish) on a Wednesday, so it's new video time! In this weeks video we finish making the 100e a roller again! We make a custom panhard
bar, make brackets for the front suspension components, and finalise the steering setup. For such a mix match of components it has all gone together
surprisingly well and even the ride heights are close enough to make it work so this is the first big milestone ticked off.
Next week we'll be ticking off another milestone, getting the engine and gearbox properly mounted in the car.
Seems I forgot what my own release schedule was when i posted last week, so no engine mountingtoday, instead you get to see me starting work on
repairing the scrap yard fibreglass bonnet. The more I work on this bonnet, the more I have come to realise, it really wasnt as good as it looked in
the photos, and realistically it wasnt worth the "saving" over buying a new one. Having said that, if I had bought a new one then I
wouldnt have had much I could get on with while the car is still at my mates, so in a way, it has been quite nice to have this to focus on during the
weekday evenings when i cant get over to work on the rest of the car.
You are right of course, but it was a case of I donít have any gel coat so wasnít going to do a proper repair and i thought it was worth trying. Long
run i expect Iíll change this bonnet, and possibly sooner if I have issues with it.
Was out at a local car meet last night†so didnít get chance to share the link to this weeks video until now. In this one I finish off repairing the
bonnet†and get both boot and bonnet painted ready to go on the car.† I am pretty happy with the results too, when I was painting them I had my
concerns but now its all dried it is looking pretty good.† Sure, if I got out some 1500 grit wet and dry and wet sanded them it would look a lot
better, but I don't think it justifies going to that extreme, especially as I am likely going to replace the bonnet in the future anyway.†
