    So I tried much harder to just spend a few hours a week in garage, which I mostly achieved. Progress is slow but progress none the less.

    Put the passenger side seat rails in. No mounting brackets just yet as I need to make/modify an elise passenger frame first and get another seat!




    Put this tube in connecting bulkhead to front rails to hopefully aid in deflecting any head ons away from my feet!






    Replaced the bits of wood spacing out the A pillars both sides with some little tubes. I?ve got some tidying up to do on shell when it?s next off the frame then this can all be strengthened and boxed in. For now, the tubes help with locating everything.

    I started doing some templating for the bulkhead around my feet. Took forever tweaking it but happy how it all turned out. I also made a start on the frame for the tunnel.

    The sides of the tunnel will be removable, top probably will be fixed, undecided yet.

    Thanks!

    So the geometry is based upon 200sx S14 stock geo and shock tower position, angle etc, but with them pulled inbound for more camber in the stock position (and to tuck inside the inner wings) and up to give more shock travel as I will be pretty low. Also helped to keep the camber sensible for moving so far inboard. I think in standard camber plate position is around 3.5deg. The run a fair amount of castor as standard c6-7deg I think which is typical on a lot of rwd stuff. I moved the engine and subframe back an inch (from memory) and plan to pull the wheel back forward by that again with adjustable lower arms and tension rods. If its too much castor I have a lot of adjustment in the turrets.

    Hard to tell I know from the pics, but looking back at notes it was 35mm in and 25mm up.





    And you can see how in the last pic the wheels are yet to be moved forward, which will induce more castor, which I can always take some back out again on the turrets but spinning the mount holes.
