Nah never was going to.... its a bling factor which I (as an older fellow) dont have too much time for. Attractive functional engineering is good. Bling for blings sake is wasting my time (and I have so little of it left!)......

Help!

I seem to recall there was a modification done to the plans for the upper front A-arm on the Barracuda.

My plans are dated 17/09/06.

Maybe the plans weren't updated, but I do recall that Tony had changed the design slightly, was it the length of the diagonal bar?

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,

Camel

There was a modification to the castor adjuster nut, simply an undercut at the end of the thread, (under the hex head) so you can get more adjustment out of it.

I'm still stuck in the jungles of S.E. Asia. Back home end of next week. Been organising stuff though. Lost of electronics and electrical connections have found their way to my place.

You want to be careful there Camel, otherwise your baracuda will take the ungodly length of time to build that mine did. 3 years and still counting........

Mate, its at a stage where I can drive it. Still needs a few little things to be done before I can paint it. If you have the time, you would be more than welcome to come round and have a squizz and yarn buggies. Cheers, Simon.

Ha! I don't drink! (Well not successfully). It would be logical to pump out as many as practical while I've still got old oil to fire the furnace and a ready supply of falcon blocks. But I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you. Got to get the Führerbünker squared away first!


Firstly..dont drink? Man that would require heaps of therapy (thats even if it is treatable)... and IF I believed you.....

Hi guys, been away working and will be so on and off over the next few weeks so I cant see anything much happening on the buggy front until after chrissy..... but.....

My metal melting thingy..whatsy..... oh thats it floundry... is rated for cast iron.

I cant see why it couldnt do the job except for quantity of material required. Do you think there would be in excess of 2 litres of cast iron involved? Thats the limit of my crucible range

I would use MDF for the plug as its extremely stable and the green sand process rather than the oiled sand due to the better surface finish available.

Happy to inverstigate futher but my prorities are finshing the fina Top Online dui classes Nevada (almost there), mounting it and then making the suspension arms. Then... making the molds for the fibreglass panels and th epanels themselves....

Got a few jobs in front of me....... sometimes I wish I could just do things otjer peoples way....life would be much simpler....


Hello,
People have to avoid the practice of Drink and driving...

Drink and drive is really not good.
But to write it in an 8 Jears old thread in a forum with 3 active members is a little senseless. :P
