New firewall, Our own design!
Here is the new look "No Servo" brake setup, We will box the pedal box in to fit the Original Robin Hood mounting angle
The whole assembly removes in one piece which will make it easy on the painting stage.
Now we tried the scuttle for size, and What do you know ? It was a nice fit!
Here is a view from the other side showing the Flat, uncluttered firwall.
You can see the Stainless Steel Bonnet hinge temporarily in place £8 from a stall at Stoneleigh (Our First Show). God that seems a long time ago, I suppose if we had rushed the build we might have been finished by now, but hey, we might have also buggered up, and put panels on back to front etc.
Also its not exactly a race to finish, Joey and I are enjoying the experience "Together" and remember he is only 13 years old, not many kids his age "Building their own cars".
Sorry about the rant its just some tossers have got on our nerves lately regarding how fast they built their cars, "Woopy bloody dooo".
Whats he listening to ? Answers on a postcard to...
This is the bracket which holds our firewall in the correct place, it is a bit of angled steel, bent and with welded on bits to suit.
Two holes through the chassis member and a couple through the Firewall.
And this is the right hand side ! We had to fettle this bracket a bit to lower the firewall, it was sitting about 10mm too high but now it sits lovely.
Here we see Joey giving our Firewall a nice coat of Black Paint this is after we had gone round and sealed the edges and any gaps with Sealant.
And this what it looked like "All Black". As you can see it gives us a nice solid frame to attach both the Scuttle and the Bonnet to.
