I love this stuff... I first stumbled onto fishcop's (from brisbane) build on pp at 11o'clock one night, I kept reading until 2:30 even though I had to get up at 6, it was worth it. Nice find michel.

How is fishcops build going?  I haven't looked at it in a while - do you have the link?

Awesome, can't wait to see his final build :)

 

And the fishcop thread is also very good for us newbies.. his car looked soooo very good but was hiding so much badness.  Hmmmmmm  those PPIs by reputable shops are so very very important (which I knew)

They probably hate hotlinking but it is very nice to see it progressing towards complete - though you never really finish a car like this.

 

I hope to see it around sometime.

Hello, down under
I found this thread when i searching the web. It is an honor when a separate thread will be opened on for me.

But nothing in my work is magic. iI's just a good job. I want it to inspire others to try it. Many people have these skills, sometimes just lack the courage to do it.

It also takes time. The least work immediately. Try and improve constantly so you can make it. It does not always much money. Many of my parts are created because I do not have the money to buy new parts. RSR struts can also buy, but this is expensive and not funny!

I use a lot titanium on my parts. So that I can make, I have a big box of army aircraft spare parts bought on ebay.Unbelievable how cheap it comes to such exotic material.
I hope I can inspire many to try it.

Greetings from Switzerland, Der Leichtbauer

 

and yes, the snow is gone, now I have more time for my project.

Hi down under
I want to show you my latest creation. That there is not yet on Pelican! The premiere for PFA.

There is a thread on Pelican on windshield wipers. Light wipers!

I'm building a windshield wiper in the original geometry but with half the weight. The parts are not finished yet, but you can see what it is. I only use aluminum, titanium, and polyamide. The wipermotor is from a VW Polo. 800gr. it is lighter than the original 911 motor, but has the same power.

Seriously impressive. They look more like instruments of precision than windscreen wipers. Well done mate.

This is fantastic. Using ex-military surplus to rebuild your 911 is just inspired.

 

My dad brought home all sorts of things from the aviation workshop that he worked in and I still have a lot of them.  Everything has a use.

The favorite was using F111 afterburner fuel pipe as the warm air duct for the choke in Mum's Datsun 240K.

 

I cant wait to see what else Leichtbauer comes up with.

240k is long gone. Rust in peace.

I prefer LB's project to Singer. This is a car being built for the pleasure of creating something special. Some how I don't think a Singer buyer would have the same satisfaction as LB who has done all the work himself.

Keep up the beautiful work Leichtbauer

lol, I know of a guy that had a gold plated dipstick in his VW thanks to the electroplating shops for the F111 (and a lot of re-chromed parts)
