It had been an unacceptable duration between updates, for your audience.

Thank you. Man this car is awesome.

Curiously, you're using the same gearbox crossmember as me, but yours is the opposite way up, with your exhaust above it. I suppose temperature against the floor is less of a consideration in a race car.

Interesting, Heath. I put it in that way because the machines side of the crossmember suggested it was to go against mating surfaces... the bottom side (that you can see in the picture is raw casting.

As far as heat is concerned, I’m trusting in Cerakote to trap some of the heat.

Sorry about the delay in updates, but the reality is, time just hasn’t been there to work on it.

I’m on to some of the wiring now ... just getting the layout and mounting of key stuff like the fuse boxes, ECU, switch panels etc, done with some schematics of the circuits, then I’ll be back in to fabricating. So, hopefully I’ll have an update or two along the way.
I dummied the radiator and hoses in the other day. Again, just to look at layout and clearance for some sort of an air box.
