Re: Bugatti Type 37 Build - Bodywork frame
« Reply #31 on: 20 April 2019, 07:29:12 am »
Slow but steady progress on building the bodywork for the Bugatti.   The tub is now in, glued, screwed and fibreglass reinforced where needed.  Made the bodywork formers thicker at key points and added the stringers/longerons to the bonnet area.

Worked with flexiply for the first time today to make the bonnet and am pleased with the results so far.  Still need to fibreglass the inside to stiffen it up.

You're well ahead of me, at best I’ll have the lower part of the front bodywork done for Stretton. Yours is looking good see you in May.

Have decided to throw on some colour for Stretton even though we’ve  not got the finish we wanted.   Wheels have new tyres.  New carb fitted.  Rusted cross member on trailer welded and new floor cut.

Now I’m bleeding the bleeding brakes again.  This is much harder than it ought to be.

Looks great, well ahead of me, I'll do a test drive tomorrow, the most I'll have by way of a body will be the lower front panels.

Thanks.  I've not started on my tail so will be looking for lots of ideas and tips at Stretton.

Re: Bugatti Type 37 Build - steering v3.0
« Reply #41 on: 11 May 2019, 11:10:53 pm »
Worked on replacement steering today.  There’s quite a difference in size between the previous drill and the one I’m installing.

Not enough time to get into the next stage of the new steering so made a rear view mirror frame

I built a fixture and mounted the new steering in the Bugatti to test it out.   It looks a bit like a Howitzer and I guess the weight at the front of the CK might help a little with handling?!

Now just need to find a couple of 9/16UNEF nuts (no so common I’m told) so I can attach the steering column.
