The finished front wing ready for a mould to be made. The arch
is further forward and higher with a lip.
A small lip is on the wheel arch. This will increase tyre clearance
and strengthen the panel.
This is the rear wing in filler during a trial fit onto the body.
Another shot of the wing, hopefully it will not look modified.
These are the two wiring looms that I made. The one on the left is for the
management and the right the cars general electrics.
Motorsport rules say that if the car has an internal filler then
a spill collector which drains to outside the car should be fitted.
This is mine made from stainless.
I turned up a small boss to take a hose and welded it into the corner.
The spill collector fits well into the chassis opening.
This is the return into the fuel tank. It was one of the first items to
put into / onto the tank during assembly.
The two low pressure fuel pumps mount onto towers in each corner. These
are the next items to go
into the fuel tank. Note the foam cut into pieces and marked up in the background.
The low pressure pumps mount onto alloy towers. The alloy towers are bonded
with petrol resistant adhesive. The pumps attach with Tywraps and a viton
between the pump and mounting. The hose is convoluted teflon. It was very
difficult to get a good
seal with this hose on the fitting.
The low pressure pumps fit into each corner.
Next the foam is squeezed into the tank.
Next the collector is fitted. Getting the pipes from the low pressure
pumps into the collector was difficult.
The top plate ready to go onto the top of the tank. The design and construction
the tank was very difficult. In the tank are 3 pumps, a collector tank,
a breather, a gauge, a filler and it all had to fit in through the top plate.
It took a lot of thought to
get everything in through the small hole.
As the petrol pipes run down the inside of the transmission tunnel close
the gearbox and engine they will be exposed to quite a bit of heat. I have
insulated the pipes with sleeves. These are made from insulating cloth,
woven glass and aluminium foil. My mother stiched up the sleeves for me.
The petrol tank is also insulated with foam. This will also give a little
Panels fittedaround the petrol tank.
I had some foam left over from the petrol tank so I cut it to fit into
the brake and clutch resovoirs. This will prevent surge of the fluid.
