manufacturing brake calipers and heat shields
At sunday I began with manufacturing of the engine cover. It’s very complex shapes were not the big problem, more the fitting to the car. After many hours of thinking and trying, a colleague suggests me, to try this one. Take very small nails, integrate them into the cover an fit as complement part tiny sleeves at the monocoque. The fricton between the nails and the sleeves should hold the cover in position. It sounds very good, and will be a very good likness of the bayonet cap of the big brother of my RB7. But I think I’ll try this one at my next model. Anyway, the cover conforms very well to the monocoque.
Today I’ve worked on the brake calipers. The brake lines and a few small parts are missing yet. Also a few parts of the air ventilation and bleed are missing. The heat shields at the engine are finished. For sure they are removable.
