Spring is in the air the sun is out, the sound of birds and angle grinder.  ::)

If you experience a complete lack of structure to this build.... you are absolutely right, so am I.... ( ??? :P

Some pictures:
Epoxy primed the inside. (makes it look more tidy   ;D  ) When I get under the car and find rustholes to big I will tackle them, for now I leave them as is.




We played around with a Raspberry Pi combined with a OBDII interface-thing. We're able to get readings of temperature, revs etc. Hopfully we can use this to incoporate in the dash...I need my computerprogrammer friend to do this!










We added some sexy stuff to the (front-) suspension...







Right now I am rebuilding the front suspension and steering...

Thanks for watching!

 :)Thank you all!  :D

Still working on it, not as much progress as I'd hoped for  ::)
I'm converting the front brakes to Aygo disks...

Upgrading the front suspension and brakes has kept me bussy the last few months. As I may have mentioned before, the Aygo parts are been made available by my project sponsor  :D. So for me the challanges of getting them to fit  ???. Originally these brakes are fitted inside a 14 inch wheel, I want to try and make them it in an 13 inch rim....

I can tell you that's tight....


First I changed the front hubs to the newer type, with 4x98 PCD.


Made templates out of plywood...




made brackets from steel


And hey presto  ;D


it all seemed to work, except that brake fluid was leaking from the brake pedal on the floor. I hope that a new master brake cylinder improves this... ;)
