    would echo the rest, the lads got skills, design and execution is spot on and he runs a nice weld. What's his day job ?

    Hi Evil, not ignoring your post, even though it was a year ago we did think about painting the rails but we thought welding the panels to the rails would have caused the paint to burn and blister giving areas where the paint would flake & cause water traps where moisture could actually get under the paint. The car won't see too much wet weather, so hopefully not too much of an issue
    I think with the use of a touch up gun we should be able to penertrate the panel gaps sufficiently.

    Cheers guys I'll try & get some build pics off him, they were ones I had on my phone.

    He could actually be classed as a bit of a geek he has a masters degree with first class honours in Mechanical Engineering. For his day job he designs, builds & commissions robotic systems for companies around the world, at a local company. His pays not great but he has access to some great machinery that the staff can use for their own work & they put him through a tig welding course.
    His girlfriend Sam works as a CNC machinist there and she has done some amazing work for the car.

    You'll have to excuse any errors in the post as I'm having to do it on my tablet & the words are about a millimetre high.

    Hopefully not too long before I do a proper update

    Ian

    hi mate,
    re the unpainted bits. if they're out of sight you could always just give them a squirt of waxoil with a cavity nozzle, they reach in anywhere.
    great work on the axle build
    neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Just a brief update, lots more work has been done but this post just how far into the build Jonny has gone.

    Axle in place









    Pile of floor panels, more are to be made for rear floor and boot along with wheel tubs



    The axle bars can be run in either 4 bar or ladder bar format by dropping the top bar down onto brackets welded to the bottom bars.
    The diagonal track locator is a temporary design to aid setting up and will most likely be replaced with a sliding joint Y design

    I really must get more detailed photo's off him sometime
