New parts are arriving. Rather than the standard Spal fan used by many club racing peers, we are going to try a new system by DeltaPAG.
It is brushless, lighter and draws much less power while moving more air than the Spal.
Bonus, fancy box.
Captured the first weight numbers for the project with our corner scales. Weighed with the dollies attached.
Weight of the shell including dollies ….
Mixed feelings – kinda nice to have the old car back in the garage and prepping for a race which is the point of all this … driving & racing.
Was concerned about moving the car on dollies down the driveway, into the street, and up into the trailer. However, our neighbors lent hands to help and it went very smoothly.
It’s done. We’ve removed all of the metal (plus a little more) that we think can be removed without compromising the integrity of the chassis. Next, it will be blasted, primer applied, then sent off for the cage.
Hoping that more weight can be removed but leaving that decision and execution to an expert (cage builder).
Top coat of tar attacked with heat.
The ‘easy’ tar.
Blasting should clear off the tar and gunk. Used heat and scrapper to remove top layers.
Transmission tunnel brace with the sharp corners – gone.
More, bigger holes than planned.
Last of the seat brackets, out.
Starting to plan for electrical requirements ….
