For bridging the gap between the last update of the Audi till the next one which will appear somewhen at the beginning of my summer holiday, here’s the next part of the Lotus 79 construction report.
I added a few parts like radiators, fire extinguisher and starter gas bottle.
Next report will be on the cockpit area.
The water radiator on the right hand side of the chassis.
The two oil radiators on the left hand side. The lower one is for the engine, the upper one for the gearbox.
The engine starter gas bottle. The starter motor itself is placed on the left hand side of the clutch housing. We’ll see that in a later report. The bottle is activated by a bowden cable which you can see here leading to the cockpit area. The two lines which exits at the bottom of the tube are brake-and clutch hydraulic lines.
The 2 kg Dreadnought fire extinguisher on the back of the tube. The tape for fixing the two lines is quite massive. 🙂
The finished front suspension.
That’s the car after six weeks of working. At the front you can already see the first bodywork parts.
