You do great work.

Thanks for the good wishes guys,i´ll gonna need themthumbs up

Today made a mock up of the body,i used a couple of doors from an old wardrobe to make some templets.
The seat area is made of plywood 10mm,this is probably staying altough it may need some modification when the drivetrain is installed,
Ofcourse i sat in the CK holding the steering wheel and made some broemmm broemmm noisesgrinning smiley
I think it is gonna look nice when it is done,let me know if you see something wrong........

Do you have your motor and Torque converter yet?
For some reason I thought they would sit in front of your axle?
Will there be room under the tail?
It is the carb you have to worry about???/

The motor is going to be mounted in front of the axle.........way far!
In fact it is going to be in the front so the rear part is actually done

I don´t have the motor yet,probably it will be delivered tomorrow or the day after,they send it from Germany last friday.

Very nice, and I too hope the therapy does what it's intended to without side effects

Moving right along Rene, looks good from here. Should be a good
incentive for you to get moving as soon as you can after the surgery.
Good luck with that

Hope things go well for you, and you make as speedy a recovery as possible. Look forward to further instalments of your build.

To get the motor a bit lower i made the motormounts under the frame,they can slide for chain adjustment.
Now the motor sits a bit too low because the clutch is hitting the framerail,have to made a riser or notch the rail a little.

Great work, René. Are you going to use the chain drive to gear down the steering? I was thinking of using a chain drive to do that, making the steering less twitchy, and to clear the pedals, allowing either left or right footed braking.

Chris.......the steering is just a mock-up now,but the plan is to make it work with a chain,i have to do it this way because the motor is in the front and don't allow the steering shaft to go to the front as most of the CK's have.
I have to find out if the gears on the steering don't have too much"turn"this way.
It allows the pedals more room and they can be operated with one foot if i want too.
Also the steering wheel is vertical,i like that better as when it is at an angle.
I also have to chance the air filter,exhaust and fueltank because the motor is too high to allow the hood to close.
Lots of head scratching to do...............
