Issue 33

This issue supplies a large part to make up more of the chassis, this is metal and adds a fair bit of weight to what we already have Blink This middle chassis has holes which align with posts of the rear chassis, its then secured in place with screws.

Issue 34

The floor pan is attached to the middle chassis and secured in place with with various screws as directed in the instructions.

Issue 35

The driveshaft comes in two parts, these are simply secured together with 3 screws. We then insert one end if the driveshaft into the hole of the differential cover before securing it to the chassis with 2 screws.

Issue 36

In this issue we get the gearbox and crossmember. The first job is to attach the gearbox to the chassis and secure in place with with 2 screws. The crossmember then goes over the back of the gearbox and secure to the chassis with 2 screws.

It really is quite large now and still another chassis part to add Blink

Thanks for looking in and your comments.

It sure is an enjoyable build, it's surprising how heavy these things get so quickly, and it's still got all the body work to go on Blink

This beast continues to grow with the addition of the final chassis part in issue 37. The front chassis part is secured to the current chassis with 4 screws. This part is made from metal adding even more weight Blink

In issue 37 we add the front fender splash guards, one on each side, secured in place to the chassis with two screws in each.

Issue 38 sees us assembling the rack and track rods. Care is needed to ensure that the the 3 parts, right track rod, central track rod and rack are assembled in the correct way to ensure the steering will work. Once assembled the assembly is attached to the steering knuckle on each of the front wheels.

Issue 39 The steering and front suspension components are added. This is started with attaching the two suspension mounts to the chassis using screws to secure in place. Next the steering box is screwed to the chassis and then the steering cylinder is attached to the rack and track rods assembly.

Nice update Dave BigGrin but I have a question.

Are the steering linkages plastic or metal?

Thanks for the comments Al, Andy, Alan, Garth & Steve.

Garth,

It is has been a fun build so far with nothing being too taxing to do, well except getting the tyres on if you havent warmed the rubber up LOL

I would say go for it, the parts are really nice, it goes together easily and the paint work is gorgeous Drool

Issue 41

We start by attaching the suspension arms to the mounts and securing with pins. I found these pins quite tough to get in but at least they wont be coming out in a hurry Cool The stabiliser bar is then added and secured to the chassis with screws. Next we attach the track rod assemble with wheels, you need to push the steering cylinder onto the steering box first and the rest will just slot into position.

I removed the steering box when I attached the track rod assembly as it just looked like it would be easier.

The suspension arms are then screwed onto the posts on the wheels.

Issue 42

To start with we assemble the A frame upper arms, this is done by attaching the A frame upper arm to the arm mount and securing with the pins. These are then screwed into place on the chassis and attached to the posts on the wheels.

Issue 43

This issues sees us assembling the exhaust system, nothing too taxing, just marry up the two halves and secure using screws. The ends are then inserted into the holes of the inlet pipes with the exhaust system then being secured to the chassis with screws.

Issue 44

Now we start on interior parts by taking the front floor section, which has some very nice flocking to convincingly simulate carpet. The gear stick is inserted into the hole and secured in place by a screw from underneath.
