You pose a number of questions and i that may answers help you on the to building a nice car.

a short note to say how much I your web site.

Glad to see my are appreciated

I am pleased to see you have a locost without the big bucks guys spend.

I don#8217;t the big bucks to spend Brian

I gathered parts such as TC front stub axles, Rack Pinion, Corolla column and Dihatsu rear absorbers coil springs, I I will have to modify as I believe they are too long.

Yep some of that will be useful in particular the steering But you will need an Escort column to make your shaft and It may be an good idea to out a Nissan Pulsar steering because of teh way that it connects (to a shaft) is something that you can work with the grinder than paying to have a cut.

After inquiring at the regards a diff and quoted I bought an old ‘86 Toyota Lite Ace van for and removed most of the mechanicals getting the metal recycle to remove the body. I bought the van I saw your website.

Plesed to see you used these

Yeah the lite ace stuff is good for a Locost but you have to your upper suspension a bit higher because the uprights are than the Cortina ones I MK 1 Escort steering arms because the Toyota arms are too and too low. Likewise I hope you saved the bottom ball because they can be used by modification of the A arm design. If you are planning a width car you can use the lite ace rear by and you will find that You can use FWD offset wheels .

I like the design of your but I will try and modify the van seats as are quite light. I checked out the bike coil/shockies in Toowoomba and one wanted $325 for a pair were oily and grotty At $50 each I would have interested but @325 I will new.

GAZ for the front.

Seats the van Just won#8217;t fit and will take up too much cockpit remember that you are only to have the drivers seat and In fact if you want to buy my old seats sell them to you at a reasonable but they are bloody hard on the .

I see you made most of your glass parts. I have had experience with f/glass and am to do same. I bought one new steel mudguard and I will use this as my mould.

I made the nose-cone and the bonnet but I bought the guards Peter Bizzet and knowing now how much work is involved I buy ready made if I could. I the droop snout look of the MK1 seven and it ended up costing me twice what white moulding would have to buy and that does not include the of hard slog

Glad to see your locost the torsionbearing tests. Is your in the Brisbane area?

We only a couple of motor engineers in the area and don’t seem in Locost compliancing. A friend and I belong to a local car club has a good workshop.

I have a of Earl Gilcrest#8217;s card on the of my blog contact him he is very

The friend is working on his chassis, but as the recently bought a tig welder he is to use this. I am happy to use mig when I on my chassis, but I have to wait our joint jig table is available.

is the present state of your

Mig is fine once you have it Tig is essential for some suspension I got a pal who is a welding Pro to do those. My car is back on the and looking real good .
