Hi Bill,

yep got the parts all prepped ready to go, these cards take up a fair bit of room in the booth so doing only 2 at a time, all the flocking will be done by next friday so will be ready for collection next weekend, the carbon fibre speaker pods will be ready the following week.

Here is some pics of a bit of custom work for a fellow company, its going to be a 2 tone interior with carbon fibre speaker pods, finally made a start:

The customer gave me a piece of material to match the flock to, I think the mix of flock is very close in dead

Finished a new product this week, A full carbon fibre roof vent with 360 degree directional vents and and rain drain. AS you can see from the pics this is full carbon inside and out on both shells. The brass rain drain is also installed through a threaded holes meaning other fitting can be used ie aeroquip ect.

Cheers

Aeroquip for a roof drain!
Overkill? Lol.

Must admit. I always wondered that those roof vents must let water in.

lol, my mate on facebook pulled me up on the brass tail said it should be aeroquip so I put that just to cover that angle lol.

Yes they attract a lot of water, debris, tyre etc, a small about of foam and aluminium mesh is also installed to both prevent objects flying through and dampen the water to help channel it towards the drain tail

I recon a roof vent built into a carbon fibre sunroof panel would be cool. Against regulations I believe, so useless on a race car. But cool for a track day car.

That had gone through my mind when I was building my MK3 fiesta, but went against it as such a hassle for unique mould etc

Totally agree.
As a one or two off build for a track day car or car used as an odd daily and track day car I think it'd be great.

But yes. As a build item for a business it's not worth building without a guaranteed buyer.
Just putting the ideas out there. :)

I don't know about the mk3 fiesta. But sure that the mk1/2 sunroof is the same item.

Jason.

Hiya Raj :cool!:

I've not been on here for ages so just left you to it bud :wink: I know what it's like when you're trying to please everyone.

Are those pics of my cards? Ready to pick up?

Give me a bell if it's easier to let me know :-) 8)

Bill.

Finally finished my my custom design for the Escort mk2 bonnet, weighs in at under 4kg and is rigid, more than up to the job for any track car.

cheers onslack,

been doing some experimenting with various coating techniques, a customer wanted their light weight Roger Clark motorsport pulleys cleaning and coating for one of their rebuilds, I decided to add some blue powder coat and do a 2nd bake, really happy with the results, the customer now has a load of other parts to be subjected to the same treatment.

As I received the pulleys
Image

After a blast
Image

First coat and bake
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Now once the pulleys had cooed I added to dark blue polyester

I was asked to produce a trim for the bulkhead of a race car, the one in question was a pretty famous series one escort. The customer knew exactly what they wanted, their driving seat has been placed further back into the centre of the car, as a result of this the steering wheel has been repositioned further back, a digital dash has been installed onto the steering column making the standard dash binnacle redundant. The customer wanted a dash trim panel to look like the passenger side on both sides ie with no drivers dash area. So we set about sourcing a left hand drive poverty spec dash together with a right hand drive one and I got to work
