There’s a lot that’s been happening, so much in fact that I’ve really been slacking with the blog. In due time, for now, picture….
That was a long break huh? Winter testing for Toyota is a travel frenzy it seems. Baudette, MN and Sault Saint Marie, MI can be some very interesting places if you ever get to go. A different way of life is all. Anyway, I decided to tackle the job of making brackets for the e-brake tabs in the rear of the car.
After getting that taken care of I made a new throttle cable bracket to take up the slack that I had at the pedal the last time I drove.
I finally have the fuel cell in the car temporarily. I just want to get this thing running for a quick drive and systems check. Once everything is operating properly I’m going to get the real fuel cell and finish with sheet metal work.
Tire shredding will commence shortly.
I was supposed to keep working on the rear of the cage that will tie in the rear subframe but that didn’t happen.
After welding in the roll cage from the main hoop forward I decided to take a break from that and get my busted bucket seat put in. It ended up a little higher than I like but I’m still driving through the steering wheel and not over it haha! Sorry to any of my friends over 5’9 but it shouldn’t be that hard to swap seat setups.
It’s very comforting to be able to sit in the car and hold the wheel. I’m learning that there are certain projects that can be done in one day that re-charge your level of enthusiasm when taking on a long term project with heavy fabrication.
