Have a look at the cockpit page which has been updated with some pictures of the finished steering wheel.
There’s been some significant progress on the R26B engine, whihch is really starting to look the part now. Have a look on the Engine Page.
New Page For The Engine
I added a new page for THE ENGINE. (Full caps totally justified.) Have a look at how I had to spend an entire afternoon making extra parts to make sure the pieces of a kit that cost £600 fit together properly. (I had a good old whinge to Sarah about this, and she asked me who I thought I was kidding. “You’re enjoying complaining about it, isn’t this part of the fun?” She makes a valid and incontrovertible point.)
Merry Christmas and happy new year!
Progress has been slow on the 787 for too long, but my confidence and enthusiasm are restored, and it is now back on the bench. I completed the gearbox oil cooler yesterday, and here is a quick photo of it as an excuse to post and wish everyone who follows or reads this blog a load of fun whatever you celebrate at this time and a very happy new year.
An Update to the Cockpit Page.
There’s a (very) small update to the cockpit page, with a nice little internal detail.
There’s another update in the Bodywork and Markings page, showing some work under the nose fairing.
Rear Suspension In Progress
Have a look at a small update with some photos of the completed rear brake cooling intakes on the new Rear Suspension page.
On the Agonies of Flourescent Orange
There’s an update (at last!) to the Bodywork page explaining why there has been so little progress on the build, and why I’ll never build a car with flourescent paintowork again!
Front suspension work updated
Have a look at the front suspension page for some photos of the brake rotors and shock absorbers, with a little added detail for the workshop too.
A Small Update
There’s a small update on the Bodywork page, showing the completed rear view mirrors.
