    " If you looking for a way to make sense of this, there isn't. It's a one off project for fun and games, not to hit a certain lap time target, or be most __________________ (insert a common goal here).
    It's going to be a total riot to drive and fast enough to plaster a stupid grin on the driver's face at any given time."


    Well said. Never enough big grins!

      "I can think of a hundred other projects I'd like to do . . . Something like a Porsche 962 or a Lancia 037 replica would probably top my list."


      So many possibilities. So little time . . .

          Boy do we have some catching up to do in this build log!
          The N1000RR was on the back burner for a little while but we got back into it recently and have been connecting all the dots.

          We had all packaging mocked up so that we have some idea as to the boundaries the sheet metal would need to work with, at the end the process the front wheel wells, the firewall, pedal box and tunnel were fabricated -


          And in the "ex-engine bay" side -


          The rear portion of the floor (prior to modification made for shifter rod) -


          More coming!

              Nice! It's good to see a build focused on FUN

              Will the radiator exit be ducted to keep the fuel tank from being heated?

                  Since we are super fun builds don't we need to ditch the hand brake and weld in the tubes for the "Air jacks"?

                    That's the plan, most likely once we get the stage that we're doing the bodywork.

                    I'll ask Frank to make a return, I know the wait was killing him..

                    Negative.
                    Hand brake = fun car that can be driven on the street.
                    Air jacks = race car.
                    This car is decidedly a fun car, not a full blown race car

                      Here's the sequential shifter setup we designed and built -



                      And with the reverse actuator in place -

                        More progress pics!
                        Hard lines are all done -



                        Front sway bar is done along with the extended tie rods -



                        Shifter, E brake, SS lines for the reservoirs and other bits -



                        Fuel, clutch and brake lines, battery tray and the bracket that is going to hold much of the wiring -



                        By the time the half shafts come in we'll be ready for first drive around the block

                          Carbon fiber dashboard came in at 15 oz. / 425 gr., not too shabby
