Bit of an update. Chassis is now fully welded with the SFi floor update done. This meant turning the chassis upside down. Hopefully that will not be repeated when its racing  Shocked

Next jobs are mount seat, shifter box and finish the custom tie rods.

A couple of pieces for the project. A pair of NOS doors. Sorry about my photography skills but you get the picture Smiley



And my rear wheels. They match the wheels I use on my oval when I race, but these are wider. It means I don't need two set of wheels to race two cars

As you can see in the photos the funny car cage has been done and I would like to thank Andy and Kate Robinson at Andy Robinson Race cars for the excellent work and customer service from this company. I have bought a number of parts from them over the years and recently Andy has been very helpful with floor specs, info and support. I would 100% recommend them. It was quite amusing seeing my climbing frame next to very exotic machinery at their work shop Shocked
Andy also had the chassis tagged by Mark Norton, and I can run 6's it seems now Shocked

I would also like to thank my Dad again, not only for most of the chassis work but also helping me load up the car and trailer 3 times on the last month for racing, and chassis drop off and pick up.

Final thanks also goes to Ron, Martin and Harvey for the constant encouragement. Just need Martin to loan me the turbo stuff to really push the chassis along (hint hint)

Loads still to do obviously, but shifter set up coming very soon once some flexi joints have arrived Smiley

Ok, time for an update.

Recent times have been spent saving money for the next lot of bits needed.
Another order placed with Ron Lummus saw all the steering components arrive and a new set of pedals as well.
Shifter box mount has been made and all tacked in.

We are also in the process of moving house hence slow Notch progress but hitting it hard this weekend coming so a few update photos may appear. Body shell still waiting to be finished but there will be a twist with that coming to set it apart from the other uk notchbacks Smiley

Some progress over the weekend
Managed to grab a few hours to mock up steering position and then make the column. Thank you to Martin for the use of a pillar drill 😀

So am I  Grin
The shell came back Saturday from welding/repairs. Will update with pics soon but I did the night shift Friday so when I picked it up Saturday morning sleep was more important than taking photos!
