Hi Dan,

 

As always, you dazzle us with remarkable work all around.  This week's standout to me is the u-joint.  You'd think these would be simple enough to make, two opposing "U" shapes, but they're certainly not.  Yours seems to be among the closest I've seen in terms of getting the bi-axial connection in scale!  which by all appearances do, or certainly could, work!  I remember the splined yoke you built on the Talbot and it looks like with a shaft/propeller tube, you could plug this in a have a perfectly functional driveline/shaft!  Looking forward to the next update 

 

Cheers

Nick

Well, today exhaust. A real "snake nest", a real challenge...

First, "four in one", two of course.

And now, it's time to take my homemade CNC machine, a cheap

Chinese vice with some improvement:

Note the sand filled pipe (annealed copper) with its two soldered caps...

A neat device Dan...can you share some details of how you modified that vice please?

 

 

Better than an explanation I hope...

But be careful, it's patented!*

Thanks for pics Dan :)

 

Looking at the pics...I would guess you  turned them on the lathe?

That being the case...it let's me out...but admire your ingenuity.

 

Respect

I'm not sure if Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen is particularly Anglo Saxon ;) but that's some impressive modelling.

Today, some engine peripheral, poor quality pics, sorry ...

 

Like fuel filters:

Now, go to the front...

Radiator, brakes and so one:

On the left corner top, wiper motor.

Cooling the brakes...

I retrieved some pics of the mould! Next post will be for fiberglass lovers...

As promised, fiberglass operations...

 

Silicon mould preparation:

 

201129090521747343.jpg

 

First layer for small details, then filling:

 

201129090521952911.jpg

 

Blue is the non stick product.

 

201129090522202260.jpg

 

Of course this step is anxiety inducing...

But all is OK!

 

201129090522452510.jpg

 

Then, the first molded piece, the central section:

 

201129090522707863.jpg

 

Putty, sanding, then putty and sanding.....

Wouaa, what a pleasure to follow your work, to discover your tricks...I watch with great attention every time I see you working with the metal lathe.
Everything is perfectly done.
I really like the colour of your exhaust manifolds, can you tell me what colour you use, thank you.

 

Note: in another subject you were talking about a jeweller's saw, I've had one for a few days, I can tell you that it's a pity I didn't have it before 🤣

Well, let's go inside...

The GT 40's dashboard is really a pure beauty for a race car.

 

The result, not perfect, as usual, but not so far of the reality after some hours(!):

 

201201094534796185.jpg

Putty is our friend!

Clear parts, on the lathe...

 

201201094535998440.jpg

 

201201100405493862.jpg

 

Switches... A lot of!

Air conditioning? No, just fresh air...
