Brakes, safety belts, cockpit electronics, starting cockpit padding, brake ducts and rain light.
And again two and a half moth flew by since the last post. This time again some bits are fitted to the car and the to-do list gets shorter and shorter. The completion of the car comes closer and closer. An expected finish could be at earliest by the end of April.
- Finishing cockpit padding
- Finshing brake ducts
- Finishing rain light
- Finishing wheel hubs
- Wheel nuts
- Engine cover
- Internal aero
The first five bits on the list are a work of maybe two weeks. The car is looking more and more attractive from day to day. But to increase the suspens till the “roll” out (maybe better move out), there won’t be any picture of the ful car any more. Just on details. 🙂
Brakes with first parts of the brake ducts. There were some thougts to make the brake ducts/covers demountable (and therefore detail out the whole brake duct stuff). But that may cause the wheels groggy when mounted…
Some parts of the brake ducts in the paint shop.
Some parts of the brake ducts pre assebmled.
Brake cover drum pre assembled on the car. It is not “carbonised” and lacquered yet.
Finally all cockpit electronics done. I am not sure at all, if this looks like the real car. But I incorporated all electronic stuff a F1 car has into the car. So there wasn’t actually much left for the cockpit. So it looks maybe a bit empty. Anyhow, it does look not too bad.
Saftey belts before mounting to the car.
Safety belts in the car.
Seat shell with mounted rescue belts from the underside.
Seat shell with mounted rescure belts from the upper side.
