Sooooo....some pics of today's small but nice fabrication that took place in Thano's shop.

 

I will let the pics do the talking . . . and how we got from a piece of metal to the final rings I wanted for my external wastegate dump tube...

Now . . . onto the installation time . .

 

I couldnt decide what theme to go with... I thought satin black . . .

Which was nice and subtle . . .

 

But then we opted for the raw finished one , to match the headlight theme going on . .

And the finished product - hope you guys like it as much as I do . . .

Cheers, and a big thanks to Thanos for his help.

So , part of my doing work in the interior, is making it more subtle at the back and more legit.

 

So I decided to remove the orange straps of the fuel cell and searched for something nicer.

 

And then Tom found an AWESOME shop where I went...and voila . . .

 

This shop has pretty much everything I needed and more . . .

I had black in my mind - but then I saw the blue like my car's blue - and the green like the Kawasaki green . . . However I struggled to not go for green this time to go for the look I wanted inside . . .

 

These were also on my mind . .

So here is what I went with . . .

We also started making a cap for my WG pipe for when it rains and the car is parked . . .

So, more updates.

 

Today I thought it was time to tackle the task of installing the rear AeroCatch pins - and remove all OEM locking mechanisms.

 

My heart hurt a bit when cutting material . . .

Here is the material removed...

Making tabs for the interior hinge parts

Almost there -

And done

If anyone wants, I can show the parts removed- pretty happy with the looks of it - functionality of it, plus the weight removal. I wonder I can remove some weight from the arms that support it. We will see.

 

cheers - more to come.

Now where was I . . . .

 

Some first test-fits and mock-ups of the cap made for the wg pipe for when the car is parked in the rain . Rarely, but can happen.

Not finished yet . . . even though it is functional.

 

Oh, and some things ready to be shipped to me . . . and some more not shown . . .

Looking good Doc, although isnt there a better solution to the straps on the fuel cell? Like some proper brackets?

 

The straps look like an after-thought.

Amazing thread. This car is an absolute machine!

 

Any thoughts of more power?

 

More power - car should be making about 700hp at crank at the moment. Although yeah- there are thoughts :D :D

Hello Pete, the straps were the original thought to keep the weight low. There not the slightest movement of any kind. Very very safe there. Plus I like how they look ;)
