Recommended Posts

This week I continue with the bonnet bulge I started last week, welding it all in and sorting dealing with the inevitable warping.

This episode I move back inside the Alfarrari and work out what I am going to do to heat the cabin.

Are you sure you need the 75mm piping?  Most dash venting I have poked around is only 50mm or less and flows plenty of volume.  Seeing as you’re restricting the outlets anyway I would have thought you could go to a smaller od pipe and still get away with it. Should be an off the shelf adapter for the marine pump. Compare the size of the 911 heat ducting for example.  Seems like would take up less under dahs space and still give you the result.

It has been a couple of weeks since I released a video on the Alfarrari. I have still been working just as hard on it but I have decided that moving forward I will only release a video when I have gotten enough work done. So here is the last couple of weeks work where I finally weld on the last of the panels to the shell.

This week, I cover a bunch of different methods to make rust repair panels to fix up the swiss cheese door frames on the Alfarrari

Amazing how many "engineered street cars" are getting round with full cages (amongst other non legal things like bead-locks and drag radials) 🙄

I’ve been told and perhaps not for all states , incorporating the cage within the interior trim, allows it to be classed as integral to the car . Though door bars remain clearly non legal

After going through the engineering process a couple of times, it seems like there is a way to get most things through if you want. I did think about trimming the cage in, but I have also been to too many motor vehicle accidents to take the risk. The argument is that it is hidden still means that the bars are much closer to your head than the original bodywork even though I am sure I could make it so that you never knew it was there if I wanted to.  

Unless I am wearing a harness and hans I would prefer not to drive a car with a front cage.

This week I button up the main structure of the Alfarrari's roll cage... mostly.
