You're welcome Marek, it's a time and motion thing, used to set hundreds of the things fitting skins to the van trailers I built in times gone by.

Of course you are right Marek. To be really fair solid rivet is the better term for the ones I was struggling with. This guy is using countersunk rivets, where I struggle single handed is where I want dome on both sides. When I was working in the marine industry we always knocked the broken "nail" out of the centre of the pop rivet as they are usually steel and corrode badly in the salt air environment, then you have to get them out of where they are! There are varieties of "pop" rivets, both material s of the rivet itself and nail, and whether the back end is open or closed.I always used the word blind for the ones with no opening on the inside. Useless fact, a 3/16 monel pop rivet properly pulled has a sheer strength of 1960 pounds. Don't try pulling monel rivets with the type of rivet gun you have, you need lazy tongs.

Looks really good Marek. Being England, have you thought about some drain holes?
If you are going to be doing lots of the rivets one of these toos while being expensive saves a lot of time and makes life very easy

does anyone have any good, simple, adjustable pedal ideas. i am designing the pedal assemble and want a large range of easy, quick adjustment so it is comfortable and fast for a range of sizes of people to use

I mount the whole pedal assembly on a plate which then bolts into the car with multiple mounting holes. Pedal with master cylinder then flex braided line back to the caliper for the brake, and throttle with all it's bits and bowden cable back to the carb. I make my base plate from what ever is handy. Ply, alloy plate or?

It's been a while since i have shown any progress on the kart. Just edited a video so that i can show you all a bit of what I have been working on.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgMFxCXcuy4

I am currently working on the seat, pedals, chassis/floor painting, drivetrain design and design for the rest of the build at the same time so things are happening slowly. I start school again soon but I should hopefully make quite a bit more progress over the next month or two. :)

Another Excellent video Marek .  Certainly is a quality build . Well done.

Are those trailer slipper springs used on the front ?

they are sliding springs that we ordered from midland motors. similar to the springs used on dad's Bugatti but slightly different dimensions and they just didn't curl the second end on them.

It's coming along nicely Marek. If the aluminium for your seat is less than 1.6mm you could roll some beads in it to give it strength. I have a roller you are welcome to use.

Having had to sit through 8 hours of FIA zoom meeting last Wednesday, I managed to retain a few bits, and lo and behold maybe relevant to this Marek.
 The optimum angle between back and base (safety and comfort) has been tested at 105 degrees opening angle. Equally important was that the base angle is not more than 10 degrees from horizontal. Given that the cushion you have in your possession was designed to that Marek, flat on the floor would meet those numbers!

I'm with Rhys on this one, have the seat in two parts with the squab shape made in foam and put it straight on the floor and do away with your front hoop. You can still make provision for alternate positions if that is your intention, and you can still hinge the back if you need.

This is the cushion Marek has in his custody.

Getting rid of the bottom squab would take a lot of weight away. how would you suggest mounting the back squab with changeable angles?
