DAMN!!!

Me and my brother started the 8hp B&S engine for the first time tonight!! And it did start and even ran pretty well!!!!

I seem to have scored a working engine

Damn what a sound without silencer!!!
Me and my brother didn't need any beer just got a kick out of the sound from it!!! Almost like a Harley! Or a 1/8 flathead V8...

It will be so cool running around the Bugrun 07 show area with it!!!



Also started to mockup the engine in the body. Almost there. If the weekend goes as planned I will have the engine with frame welded in, and if I'm really lucky even the rearwheels on!


Got the frontaxle mount welded. I also decided to use the stock beetle steeringnuckle, just , bent and the steeringarm to make it fit.... Not much room there...

Worked on the exhaust design yesterday..

You begin to see the idea and shape of the complete drivetrain...

I cut up an old exhaust that I had lying around. The Y-part will connect to the tubes on the both heads...

Tested how the fronthood hinges worked for the first time yesterday. All original mounts are untoched worked perfectly!




The exhaust system is also almost finished. Will create one hell of a cool sound...

Exhaust finished last weekend. Sounds like a bug engine without silencer!!!
Also shortened the driveaxles by 12 inches.. which made them finally 5 inches...


Yesterday I cut off the bearinghousing from the donor IRS trailingarms and adapter early brakedrums to them. Made them work by "CNC" machining a half an inch slice of the late 4-lug drums axle snout for use as a spacer inside the drums. Got them mounted togehter and now waiting for the weekend so I can weld everything onto the Lawnmower frame and body.

Tested the whole drivetrain today. Lifted the rearwheels off the ground just to see the speed on the wheels. Too lazy to calculate the gear ratios..

Couldn't yet drive it as the steeringbox and steeringwheels are not yet fitted...

Finally welded the front quarterpanels.

Have not been able to go to the garage and work on the Double Cab the past week so I decided to do some work in the home garage instead..
Painted the pedals for Hebster and assembled them:

I guess I have a lot of other mixed projects in this thread so I'll just post it up here...

Been thinkin about making a soapbox racer for the kids as the first attempt went out of hand from the beginning...

Here is my first mockup in 1:6 scale.



Finished the fullscale drawing today. Just need to do the X-sections now too and then I can start making the skeleton for the body... Not that I know when I will find the time for it though...
