Title: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on May 27, 2011, 08:52:40 AM
Hi Guys.
New to the forum, I have been watching this forum for the past few months. I decided to buy an Xtreme 360 kit, ordered and collected the kit a few months ago.
I have been extremely busy at work, however I made a start.
I bought the Peugeot and have already completed all the welding and I am currently doing a dry fit on the panels.
Hopefully this build will be interesting to you all as it will be a bit different. We build spaceframe chassis's and race cars for a living as well as running a full body shop. Therefore we are putting the engine in the rear, we will be designing and building a full rear spaceframe for this. The car will also run wishbone suspension all round.

Pictures will follow.

P.S judging from some of the points raised on the forum I may need some advice along the way

Many Thanks.

Hi All.

Had a great long weekend on the car. Got all the panels dry fitted, gaps are great. Well pleased with the panel fit, praise to extreme for such good panels.
Finished the door handles and bonded on the passenger side door.

Cant figure out how to put pictures on, please help.

Good to hear you are progressing!

The best way to upload pics is to sign up for a photobucket or webshots or similar account. They allow you to add photos then you can link to the photos on here and the size doesnt matter.

Cheers
Andy

Post by: Drew355 on November 10, 2011, 12:04:46 PM
Hi mate, if you go to www.photobucket.com (there are other sites but this is the one I use) and follow their instructions to sign up for an account. Then you just press the upload button on their website and upload all your photos to the photobucket website. They keep all the photos on their computers and when you want to add a picture on here for people to see you just link to it. We only have a limited storage space on here which is why the pics have to be small.

Once you have them on photobucket, you just put your pointer over the photo & it automatically brings up a set of option boxes. Just click in the one that says IMG code at the bottom & it will say "copied"

Then you just go to your topic on here & click the reply button at the bottom. Then to put the picture in press "Ctrl" and "V" together. This will put a long line of code into your reply which will link to your picture. You can then add as many pics as you like to each reply.

It sounds a bit complicated, but once you have done it once it is very straightforward.

When you are adding pics or info about your build, you need to add them all as replies in your build topic (I have renamed this topic so you can use it) , not as new topics each time. I will merge all the topics you have posted so far into this thread, so they will appear in the date order you posted them.

If you need any more help just shout!  :)

What engine are you using for the rear? the pug's or something else?
There was a post sometime ago of a guy who had, along with the front engine, also put a v6 in the back. Totally bonkers BUT it worked, which at least proves it's possible

Post by: ferrari360jd on January 14, 2012, 05:50:57 PM
hi dangerous, how u geting on with your build. just found a post u sent can not figure out wen u posted it if it was a while ago apologies for not replying,im am going to put the pug engine and box in the back , mainly for simplicity as i already hav it and all the wireing should hopefully just need extending. i drove the car for a couple of weeks  was not bad power wise .i do plan to use it to travel abroad as well as at home so it will be fairly economical .however if i get board with it i will probably look at a super charger and a rebuild . :) cheers jd.

I really admire what you are doing here and the engineering looks top notch. I wished I had gone this route during my build.
If it was me I would consider putting something in the rear with more substantial power than the standard PUG engine.
Have you thought about installing the Audi V8? this will have the sound and the power. Or do you have plans to tune the original engine?

Keep the pics coming.

Post by: dangerrous on April 01, 2012, 05:00:29 PM
Rear mounting the engine gives loads of tuning room, ie. supercharger, turbo. A 3 litre with forced induction is no slouch.

JD really interesting build, this part of a conversion always gets my juices flowing

Post by: dlou84 on May 26, 2012, 12:37:44 PM
loving this..

My plan is to build a complete space frame I plan to mate a stretched mr2 (stretched to match the pug dimensions) (mr2 for suspension and geometry and drivetrain) with a pug coupe then build a tubular chassis within the pug lines.

The MR2 will power the car with the pug and the custom chassis/pipe work forming the structural support for the extreme kit.

We've also got the lexus v8 in the mr2 so thats the reason really.

Have you come up with any issues so far?

You should look at the renault clio v6 you could mate the coupe with one of those..

Cool well done JD.

So is  that the Audi A3 5 door (about a 51 plate?)

so by using the frame (is this the winder frame) you can fully wind the A3 Glass up and down?

how much would you charge to get me a drive made and make a Dvd/plans up to do this?

Thanks..... ;D


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: Drew355 on March 15, 2013, 08:56:59 PM
Nice one! I assume this is something that has to be added during the build and cant be retrofitted. I did a bit of a basic try on one I had in, but didn't think I could get it to fit. Glad you have sorted it, glass will be a big improvement. Even when fitted properly, you never could properly close the plastic windows when at speed, bit of a pain on the motorway! Hehe!

Hi guys, well after a busy week with work and building 2 race engines for our own race cars I did manage to get some more done on the car ,started the build up of the headlights , fitted indicators and side lights in to them ,the adjusters also arrived off extreme so I can Finnish them now .thanks again extreme excellent service.boring job was to reposition the tow eye so it lined up with the ferrari one in the bumper ,next I put a last coat of primer on the front end blocked that out , sealed the underside of the front end with some stone chip and painted this black .painted the lip around the wings in satin black and eventually got the front in painted red,she looks mint , the picks don't do it justice .next job is to get a bit more clearance on the inner wings before fitting the front end back on cheers jd here's some picks hope u like .

Hi guys managed to get an early finish today so marked out for the indicator repeater in the wing  and drilled a hole for that  also rested the badge in for some more  inspiration before I start removing the engine to paint the rear space frame  and detail the engine, here's a couple of pics , not the best as off my phone cheers jd

Yeah don't know what to make of the 430 myself, have never seen a completed one as of yet, apart from that carboned wrapped one on e-bay that is so so bad. My 355 has been in the garage for about 2 years now and not going anywhere, hoping to sell it in a couple of months, it's not an Extreme kit it's a BAD kit as far as I know, garage is too small to take proper pics of the car to be honest, might have a problem getting it out >:( keep us updated with your 360 build ;) am loving thr 360 Stradale replica of the front extreme webpage. Keep up the good work mate, :D

Hi JD,

I dont know if you allready know this, but I have discovered something on the Audi window to take into account that I would like to share.


I called an automotive glass manufacturere over here, in the Netherlands, and asked for info on side glass... please see: http://dk.nl/en_GB/ (I am not affiliated with them in any way). They produce limited amounts of glass for prototype cars of known car brands.... ( just  a set of side windows cost about € 5k) (!!)
However, they gave me some usefull info on different types of side glass...

As you can see on the pic below, there is a frame around the window when you open the door. At oter coupe's, like the Peugeot 406 of the f430/360 there is NOT a frame around the glass for support. This side glass differs from glass that is supported by a frame.... It consist of multiple layers and is stonger. They told me that there is a chance of breaking the glass if you close the door too hard...

Hi JD,

Thanx for the great update!  where exactly did you place the weld on the cog?  your system looks briliant! Looks like after all these years there finally is a solution for the sideglass! Cant wait to see the video!

The system on the below picture is what you are using right?

(http://s8.postimg.org/kkqzfrth1/T2e_C16_V_y8_E9s2fjt_Vi_BRj5d_Lzl_w_60_85.jpg) (http://postimage.org/)
screen shot on a pc (http://postimage.org/app.php)

What are your plans for the quarter windows? Are you keeping the lexan quarters or do you have/are thinking about an alternative? I am affraid OEM quarters don't line up correctly as you can see on my post at madmechanics...

(I have allready sent you this link in a PM, thought I'd place it here so other members can see it)
http://www.madmechanics.com/forum/technical-discussion-question/17432-moulding-360-pls-advise-me-2.html

Hi damn,yes that's the Audi window we r using ,we tig welded just on top of the cog where it mates with the spline bush Just two spots but its more than strong enough as its only going in to a plastic bush on the Audi frame , one of our window company's is going to make the rear quarter windows for me from laminate glass so will hav glass in the whole car  cheers jd

Hi JD!

Do you think your glass company can make an extra set of rear quarters for me??! That would solve my window-quest!! I am definately going for the window setup as you have built it!! How mucht do they cost?
I might have someone else who is interested in buying a set also..

It would also be great if you can supply the parts for the motor! Your findings are a huge help!!

Thanx again!!

Hi JD,

Thanx for the update!  I have 3 questions:

1:Do you have time to explain the proces of adjusting the roofpillar to the audi window with some more details (drawing in pics or video explenation would be great)? I've been checking out your pic but find it hard to understand where and why you have cut it.. I see you have removed the outer skin of the pilar...

2:As far as I can see, the back end of the audi glass lines up propperly with the angle of the B-pillar (of the kit).. How did you solve that? Have you fitted the entire system in such a way so that it leans back?

3: Can you post some more pictures of how you fitted the audi window frame in your door?!

Looking forward to see the video!

Cheers

Hi damn I will b striping my door and window down soon to paint inside it ,so will take as many photos as I can were I cut the door, the reason I cut the roof pillar was wen the rubber was fitted back in the window dosent fit perfect with it and didn't go under the lip to seal properly , it may b possible to set the window in a lower stop position  then add to the pillar , there's always more than one way to do the same job and get the same result,ps I will pm u my tell no so u can ring me and ask any questions cheers jd

Hi guys had a few hours on it last nite finished welding up the roof pillar  and started fitting the tailgate hinges , also managed to pick up a genuine engine bay side cover , looks like this will fit with very little modification   , here's a pic of the roof pillar will post the tailgate ones wen finished cheers jd


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: dman1409 on July 01, 2013, 11:04:37 AM
Looks great jd!!

So if im correct you have cut the pillar over the length, adjusted it to the curve of the glass, then welded it back up?

I see you made 2 cuts in the B-pillar... Is that also for alligning with the rear angle of the glass?!


Have figured out you windscreen yet? Im going to a glass fitter with my friends 360 to compare  windshields.. I try to find an oversized one with a similar curvature of that of the 360/430...the edges i will cut to the correct shape of that of the original, while maintaining a perfect fit for the Pug...

Then i will adjust the A-pillars and the roof section to blend with the shape of the windscreen

Below is a pic of the A pillar... Hope this helps you  with finalising the shape of your A pillar..

I would look at the chrysler windscreens!!!!

Sebring/breeze they are nearly the same in curvature as that of the 360 and have a nice oversize which you can cut.. I'd really chech that out!!

Are the rear quarter windows the same dimensions? it's hard to tell from your photo as you did not push the panel end down. Do you think you can put real 360 glass in there with some modification?


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: dman1409 on July 05, 2013, 01:24:52 PM
That is what I wonder aswell about the original glass.. If if you cut up the pillars and reshape it to fit the audi.. Why not fit it to oem glass... I am checking out that option aswell..

I think the audi door frame with pug motor can be used as a donor to modify to the oem ferrari glass.. The guide rails are quite thin so they can be bent into shape...

What do you think JD?!


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: GTOpower on July 05, 2013, 02:01:10 PM
And how about the original 360 windscreen? if you modified the A pillars it might be possible to make that fit as well.


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: dman1409 on July 08, 2013, 06:38:30 PM
Hi JD,

Oem quarters won't fit without modification. The oem quarter has a sharper back shape, where the extreme quarter is rounder... The bottom edge follows the same line as that of the OEM quarter, the upper edge follows the natural curve of the lip of pug's side glass rubber... This has been done to keep a natural flow from front to back...

Please see pictures below... Oem quarter on a extreme 360:

Hey JD,

I'm not trying to convince you to take a diffetent route hehe...  I posted the pics as general info because you said the quarter might fit looking at the pic i posted earlier... 
I posted that pic to show that it does NOT fit. :-) that is why i posted more pictures to show the differences... They prove you are taking the good route by making your own quarters...(which i am also interested in)

will you adjust the quarter to line it up with the audi window?! I ask this because when you look at Maverik's build you see the rear quarter line differs From that of the a3 window.. (See his last update)


I am checking out 3 options:

1- A3 glass like you/maveric
2- The audi A5 coupe glass ( it has a rounder top edge, which might follow the line of the rear quarter and is about the same size as the A3).
3- oem glass/quartes (+reconstructing A-pillars/roofpillars and rear quarter sections in the rear panels)

I will base my decision on your build hehe... That is why I follow your build closely

Cheers

Hi dman yes I will be moving the b pillar to follow the line of the Audi glass that was why there were the cuts in b pillar that u noticed ,it only needs moving about 12 mill at the top, hav been tryIng to upload video of window working but it won't let me as to big so need to put a link onto YouTube , ps looks like maverick mite hav built hIs pillar out with filler as it looks wider at the top now .

Guys,

I paid a visit to JD's last night as we only live 4.5 miles away from each other, and I gotta say, his 360 is fantastic!

The detail he has put into it up to now is very impressive...its lovely and will be stunning when its finished!

He has done a fabulous job of solving the Audi A3 window fitting and it looks great....he and the missus are also very nice people!

Keep the build up JD and we can have ride outs in our "Ferraris" next spring!

Regards
Phil

No worries, my phone was playing up in any case, wasn't there all that long either! Some nice cars there but wasn't that big in terms of owners clubs etc..

Re my car, I'm now 100% set on a 360 kit, going to do a Stradale style, just finishing a car to sell then I'll have the funds to complete the build, just trying to find a good donor atm not many about with low mileage etc.

Also working on 360 dashboard etc.

But once I start hopefully be putting in quite a few hours a week, maybe do a build thread of my own - haven't decided yet! I'm itching to get started to be honest been waiting for over 2 years to get going, but close now.

Hi guys trial fitted the cover for the manifold last nite ,and I don't think I like it it would of been painted satan black but I think it looks wrong  , think il go with just painting the manifold instead ,maybe alloy weld a ring into it for the dumbly bottle  comments welcome here's a couple of picks cheers jd

Post by: MartyWebb on September 11, 2013, 12:17:53 PM
Hi JD,

I agree painting the manifold would look better, a nice satin / matte black would be good.

Have you thought about cutting some tube and welding an A-frame shape like on the 360? would look the business (pic below so you can see what I mean) I know there's not much space to maneuver on the manifold, but I'm sure you could come up with something!

Hi Marty thanks for reply ,I agree this would look awesome  I did look at doing this only problem I had was the frame would sit a lot higher up than the original to miss the timing covers , mite mock one up to c wat it looks like cheers jd

Thanks for the great comments drew,it does look great without the panels lol,


Hi guys quick update,decided to finish a couple of jobs before painting the chassis ,first job was the b pillars,removed about 2inchs out of these redrilled the seat belt holes and fitted some more captive nuts before welding these all back up again,this allows u to hav the same black boarder on the quarter glass window as the Oem one and not a massive black one . The next job I'm doing over the next couple of nights is to put a support bar across the rear roof to make sure I get a really gud bond on the roof skin ,here's a couple of pics so far cheers jd

Hi JD,

Well I'm still collecting other bits an pieces really..... I decided I am going for OEM glass all the way... I bougth an window mechanisms OEM f430 (left) and going to buy the right one this week... and will buy the  the glass in the next month... I'm just gonna do it... no mather what... LOL Lots of money going into all kinda small bits an pieces at the moment... I want to collect most parts before buying a donor.. I need al the glass and all the stuff around them before I can start as one of the first things on the list is adjustng the pillars and roofline... if i dont have these pieces I cant start...


Right now I am figuring out my suspension... I DONT want to use any spacers I have and Idea in how to widen the track of the back by cutting the rear swing arm between the rear hub and where the shock absorber is bolted on to. See the white line on the picture below

I want to lenghten the arm by welding a beam under it and metal strips in the side... do you think this will work?

(http://i1113.photobucket.com/albums/k507/Dman1409/32D89BCC-223D-43BE-9817-EF2AF4BBD003-2596-00000559608DF329_zps2cc3c58d.jpg)

However, widening the front track is gonna be a bit of a challenge I think... Do you have any ideas on how to do this?


I want to go for a big brake setup of 14". I am thinking about using corvete C6 rotors etc and Caddilac CTS-V calipers... please see the link below:

http://ls1tech.com/forums/suspension-brakes/1117381-super-cheap-big-brake-kit-info.html

Do you think it can be installed on the pug? Or do you have any alternative ideas?

Regarding the Upol: do you have a product number for me or a pic? There is a upol reseller close to where I live so I can get it..

Cheers

Hi guys well back from a fab Holliday and fired up to get stuck in to the bodywork now,first a reply to dman,


Hi dman I hav put a picture on of the u.pol paste I use ,as to your suspension the rear could b done as u suggested as long as u overlap the joint for stength and use the correct thickness of steel, but personally I never like joining things in this way I would opt to fabricate new arms up from scratch, as for the front,I would make it double wishbone using the Peugeot hub modified which will keep your steering arm in the correct place ,just extend the rack as I hav done,as for the brakes they look great but if u use the Peugeot hub it would hav to b drilled to a five stud like mine but as the hub is not big enough to hav a large pcd then again u would hav to use an adaptor plate as I hav hope this helps cheers jd ,ps as for the door windows if u look at a genuine car the b pilar is past the quarter panel which mite make the window to short , just worth checking before u buy them .


Hi guys well had a couple of hours on her today , cut the holes in the rear bumper for the no plate lights ,And painted the new brackets I made for the bumper with some bare metal primer, will paint these black tomorrow and refit them then it's flat out prepping the body for primer  cheers jd here's a couple of picks .

Hi JD,

Thanx for your input and pictures. Have some questions regarding the rear and front suspension:

Rear: You mentioned correct thickness of steel, would that be the same thickness as the steel used in the pug's arm?

Front:

1: When keeping the engine in the front, will I have enough space for the horizontal bars which you have welded in the wheel arches? Will there be enough space below the engine for the crossed bars?

2: As the wheelbase of the 360/430 is shorter, I want to move the suspension to the back. Will it be a problem if the drive shafts will be operating under a constant angle?

3: Regarding the modification of the peugeot hub to meet the steering arms: Have you done this modification? I can imagine placing a bracket in order to reach the steering arms when you move the suspension FORWARD, but since we move it BACKWARD and thus moving the ends of the steering arm to the center of the hub, I dont have any idea how to do it...

4: You mentioned "extending your rack" what do you mean by that?

Regarding the windows:
I know exactly what you mean but what you see is the edge of the rear quarter window. It has a plastic strip laminated on the glass, which looks a bit like a pillar but the actual metal pillar is behind the glass...the oem quarter glass is longer then the ones of extreme, lining up wit the side glass perfectly, running just about 2cm behind the door... there is a rubber with some soft type of textile where the side glass runs over when going up and down..

I will use oem side glass, as well as oem quarter glass, which will require adjusting the rear quarter panels. this counts for changing the shape of the space where the quarter window goes in, as well as removing the "prefab B-pillars".

Regarding adjustment of the a-pillar/roof line:
One Lucky thing is that I recently noticed that there are metal stips, which are screwed on the sides of the roof line, where the rubbers for the side windows go in.(!) They have a fixed shape!!
They are quite expensive as the cost about 250 euro each... However worth buying because I can use them as reference for adjusting the A pillars as well as for mounting the rubbers later on.. but I first try lend them from my friend to see if it will work.

Cheers!

Hi guys had a bit of time on her today in between customers jobs , and a couple of hours on her tonite,made up some brackets  for the mesh grill in the middle of the rear bumper and bonded them in , then made a metal surround with the mesh attached to that so it can be bolted in and removed wen I paint it ,then primed the bumper while I was priming a customers car and baked that job done .spent tonite prepping the o/s rear quarter hope to hav this ready for Saturday,then start the n/s quarter,here's a couple of picks cheers jd

Hi guys, well had a gud day doing bodywork on her today ,firstly for anyone who does want to do there own prep work I would say cheecking for any air pockets is a key factor as I own a body shop I had the luxury of baking all my panels which showed up a few air pockets but still found some more while doing the bodywork ,main areas were around the arch lips and around the edge of the quarter panel where it meets the light panel these all looked perfect but I checked by tapping lightly with a screwdriver handle which revealed some more ,these were ground out and filled with bonding paste, today I finished up the lip on the o/s quarter panel were it meets the engine cover made the line perfect were the side skirt meets the quarter and finished around were the light panel fits ,just a bit more were the roof joins and do the door gap and that will b finished ,hope to get it done tomorrow ,here's a few up to date pics cheers jd .

Great progress!! Love how flowing the lines of your rear booth lid are with the roof...looks stunning!!

Regarding baking panels.: i heard it is not ok to bake fibreglass panels as they might warp out of shape... Do you bake the car again after paint or only before!?  The baking thing is where I hear many stories about people Ruining their paint jobs...

What do you recommend for the best result?


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on November 18, 2013, 08:30:43 AM
Hi dman thanks for the great comments ,as for baking the panels I can only speak from my own experience I dry fitted my kit and screwed it in place getting the best fit possible before baking any of my panels,I built up the front end panels and bonded them together prepped and primed them then baked them for thirty minutes then bolted them straight back on the car ,they do feel a bit more flimsy wen hot but they did not warp they Lined back up perfect ,however this did reveal a few air pockets around the wheel arch lips ,I did the same with the rear quarters they fit back perfect to ,once I primer filler the whole car it will get baked again then one more coat of primer ,then a coat of clear sealer then the red which will b baked again then on to couloir sanding and polishing,I hav painted many fibreglass cars over the years ie lotus etc and had no probs wen baking them cheer jd

Hi JD,

I have great admiration for your skill and project but as a fellow builder I also have a critical eye and try to help where I can.... Maybe you have got it covered allready later on in the process but in case you have not, I would like to share my view with you... I noticed a little disturbance in the line of the side glass to quarter glass, which I have noticed before on other 360 builds before once the rubber seals are fitted... In the picture below I have tried to outline what I mean.

(http://i1113.photobucket.com/albums/k507/Dman1409/269617E3-C424-4B25-A851-0A508EADAABF-2411-000004962D5A7F66_zps60707c09.jpg)

Hope it helps you mate

Cheers

Regarding logo's:

I have bought an oem front bonnet logo (OEM) and a pair of metal REPLICA shields... I dont know if you have them allready , but of you are interested I will PM you where to get them ... the shields are only 50 dollars (!!) and look nearly exactly as OEM... They are only a bit thinner when looking at them from the side... I am considering having some thicker ones produced, as the supplyer is able to make them custom...

Hi dman ,thanks for the imput ,I no exactly wat u mean about the roof line hopefully I've got it covered  I'm on with that stage now I hav a choice of a few side trims so it's a case of trial and erra at the minute I'm going to finish the roof prep  first ,just keep trying each trim till I'm happy with the best one,as for the badges I've got a Oem bonnet badge and some resin side badges wich look pretty gud and quite thick will c wat they look like on the car wen painted cheers jd ,

Hi guys just a few update photos of body prep just about finished the drivers side roof ,trying different roof side trims  to get the best Oem look ,cheers jd

Looking forward to your findings as the toof line and glass are my main concern for my build...

What are your plans for the windscreen? Do you leave the pug in? Are you going to round of the top corners?

Cheers


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on November 19, 2013, 11:04:18 PM
Hi dman I hav put a bid on a Oem front screen,  if I get it I will c wat it fits like ,but to b honest I don't mind using the pug screen if I hav to ,I will defo round the corners on the top of the pug screen and use some different side trims  to the fibreglass ones from extreme, cheers jd


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: dman1409 on November 20, 2013, 12:21:56 AM
Before you buy an oem screen ... Please mind that eurospares has a pattern screen for only 400 euros(!!!!!) same screen, only it does not have the ferrari logo on it...I called the two werks ago and they confirmed it is the same... Unless you can get it for a great price i'd go for the one in the link below...(thats what i will do..)

http://www.eurospares.co.uk/searchResult_one.asp?S=63353800&TM=1&TMo=643&TA=2&TB=36959

Cheers

( ps: i just bought myself a peugeot engine.. 90000 km on it... That way i can buy a cheap donor ... Gotta remove the engine anyway at some point...for the suspension)



Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on November 20, 2013, 05:29:08 PM
Hey dman ,great find on the engine like u say easier to find a donor now dosnt matter if it's high miles ,cheers for the link on the windscreen,do u no if they are wider than the pug screen,ie will they fit the pug windscreen opening with out any side fillers and are they the same top to bottom I no u said your friend owns a real 360 just wondered if u hav compared the screens yet cheers jd


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on November 20, 2013, 09:20:10 PM
Hi guys not a lot done tonite ,put the last skim of filler  in the roof and primed the inside lip were the engine cover sits had some primer left off a job this afternoon, shame to waste it lol, here's a pick of the lip the primer is white , cheers jd


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: dman1409 on November 20, 2013, 09:33:00 PM
I think it will sertainly fill the gaps on the sides.. However the ferrari has more round curves than the peugeot... On the sides as well as on the top and bottom.. So you would have to adjust your pillars... And roof line, where it meets the top of the screen...

At eurospares you can buy seperate A-pillars (!!) Around 250 euros each... Maybe you can weld those over your pillars....

But to be honest... I gave gave this case some thaught over night...I think I would go for a Chrysler Sebring wind shield ( has nearly the same curve as an f430 and a nice oversize), put it on a stand... Lay fibre glass on it to replicate the shape.. Lay it on your car and cut off the edges to perfectly fit the space... Lay it back on the wind shield.. Trace it around the edges and cut the glass all around using a mill (rotorzip) i have seen an instruction video of that on youtube. I will try to find it for you...

I think this will be a better route for you because:
1. You use audi side glass so the shape of the A-pillars will look off i think..
2. The angle of the pugs Apillars is steepher and longer (from bottom to top curve of side glass), while the a-pilars of the 360 are more proud sitting and a bit shorter (again, from bottom to top of curve of side glass)

So I think you are better off adjusting an oversized windscreen to make it look in proportions with your current setup... I'd round off the top corners for a more OEM look though...

What I can do for you is make a paper trace of my friends windscreen and send it to you by mail so you can fool around a little with that... At least it gives you some idea of how it will look...
If you want that, just tell me...

Cheers

Hi dman ,sounds like a lot of work I'm pretty happy with the overall look of my car so to b honest I will stick to the pug windscreen I will round the top corners and hav some fillers made in alloy and made to fit flush with the side of the screen that way I will hopefully only hav about half of a inch trim  once the rubber is fitted thanks anyway ,cheers again jd

Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on November 28, 2013, 09:23:58 AM
Cheers dman ,I think a lot of people hav just done a small join at the top and not flowed down the pilar ,this may b why a few people had cracks at the top were they join ,I looked at a few real cars and studied a few picks to get the shape right ,cheers jd


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: dman1409 on November 29, 2013, 01:11:28 AM
What do you mean with a "small join"?

Can you explain more about the proces?

Cheers


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on November 29, 2013, 09:11:11 AM
Hi dman ,firstly the door trim is off a ford puma I think I can make this work well,as for the join on the roof ,where the quarter meets the roof panel it's  easy to get a nice fit then put a small amount of filler across the join which if to thin May crack ,I made sure
I left a bit of a gap also tapped the roof down a bit more so I could get plenty of bonding paste underneath it ,wen screwed in place this allowed the paste to squeeze through the join which could then be spread over the jop of the join also ,once dry the screws removed the roof was deliberately low allowing me to give another covering of bonding paste  to get to the correct height and continuing down the c pillar to get a better shape and a much stronger join ,hope this explains it , cheers jd

Hi guys had an hour on her last night,had to go to a friends salvage yard yesterday so while I was there I got a few bits of trims to try,  I think I've chose the one for the windscreen it fits pretty gud,I will fill in the roof corners to round them off and will hav to extend the edge of the front wing ever so slightly but using this trim
Means no fibreglass filler is needed ,I've taped the roof and wing with masking tape and coloured them in to get a better idea of what it will look like , here's a few picks cheers jd.

JD, I see that you have a Stradale front bumper on the 360. Will you be turning it into a Stradale replica, e.g.
Stradale Stripe, modified skirts and rear diffuser? It would look sweet, just like Paul Belks one on the front of the Website, either way mate your car is a winner.  ;)

Going to be a good result this one I think !

With the space frame rear , I'm guessing you won't be limited so much for the drop compared to sticking with the original suspension mounts ?

Then interested to know where you start with the geometry settings, since its not the peugot linkage now ?

Cheers nick

Hi nick 355, yes with the suspension set up I have I can hav it nice and low,as for where to start,  I build race car chassis for a living as well as a full body shop   so for me its easy but the key is still preparation,  mock everything up tack things in place then check everything with camber caster gauges making sure there is no bump steer on the front suspension as well as making sure camber changes are all with in tolerances  cheers jd

Hi Steve ,yes she's looking close now ,like u say it will b hard not to smile, looking forward to the summer and some fab days out with it ,ps hope to c u in the new year looking forward to the next project ,cheers jd

What do you mean with bump steer !? And you mentioned camber changes... What is that?

I also love shopping on ebay! Buying parts is the same when the girl is buying clothes... Gives a good feeling... Like unwrapping a present! Just bought myself another window regulator this week! Hehe

Cheers!


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on December 08, 2013, 11:30:42 PM
Hey dman ,I new someone would ask that lol,il try to explain it as easy as I can ,firstly bump steer is what happens with your wheels if the wishbones and steering rack are not set in the correct position ,the front of your wheels will toe in under braking as the car dips down and toe out as the car lifts under acceleration not gud , camber is wen your wheels lean in or out at the top ,leaning in is called negative camber ,leaning out is positive camber, hope that helps a bit it can get very complicated to explain in detail,needless to say u need to hav the right length top and bottom wishbones set in the correct  position and also the steering rack set at the correct hight and correct position , cheers jd

Hi JD I have been watching your progress with pleasure, your a talented man with cars.
As for the fuel cover badge, hard one it does look good on black or with carbon fibre, but im not sure on the red.
As a thought an alternative idea what about getting your daughter to do a shadowed or faded look logo for it, ie a darker red than car colour?
Or a clear one showing off shinny fuel cap hehe.

On side note reference to OEM 360 seats. Pug seat runner is 520mm outer edge to outer edge, OEM 360 is 460mm outer to outer so custom runner plate needed.
 
Keep up the excellent work.  ::)

Regarding the seats:

How is the floor hight in the pug? I heard some builders are experiencing problems with seats sitting to high in the car, because the roof is lowered... that where racing seats though...

What is your experience so far?

Hi dman thank u for the offer well appreciate it  but I think at this stage there's probably as much time rebonding a new cover on as finishing this one however if I'm not happy with this one wen finished I will take u up on it if that's ok cheers jd .

Hi guys ,had to get up early this morning to take wifey to train station so decided to look at interiors ,the seats I hav are genuine 360 in cream leather with red stitching which I luv ,so the theme will b based on cream leather,now the panel behind the seats going from the floor up to the cockpit window on quite a lot of pics is carpet ,but I want to do this in leather ,so I've decided to do the headlining all the panels behind the seat just the centre part of the door cards and possibly the lower dash in cream ,with red stitching  but not sure weather to do lines or go for diamond patern ,here's a few pics ,any thoughts welcome guys ,cheers jd

Hi JD,

I think I would match the ribbing on your seats for the back panel and get some of these and fix one behind each seat on the firewall to break up the space...

Cheers Steve ,yes I think I'm leaning towards a few rows of straight lines with double stitching on the rear panel, leaving the headlining  plain or a couple of rows going front to back in the centre, and trying to get the door cards something like Oem ,or and a couple of storage nets on the rear panel I hav seen them on some real cars ,cheers jd


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: GTOpower on December 17, 2013, 01:45:51 PM
Its coming along nicely. I think OEM creme style interior looks best, well thats what I chose to do on my car. Here is a pic of one of my door trims:

(https://blufiles.storage.live.com/y1pE2r0h1AvQxzj2n61OfW4XRmH0dvQ9mkUyq6bcFmS62GTvIsk746h9Qj2-vF7vbvAc4NVPY8Zu6rg91LE8wSiwQ/09.jpg?psid=1)

I also put the storage nets on the rear panels.

How are you mounting your seats? they might be too high and touch the roof interior. I had to modify the floor by removing the central beams and mounting points with the angle grinder so I could bolt the runners direct to the floor.

Ok thanx a million mate!! finally I can get some stuff done with it!

I found some OEM interior panels for quite a reasonable price on Ebay... think they might be interesting for you... I think the price is good in relation to the amount of hours work it will take to make them....


About the door cards... What will you be using? the pugs?? I have an adjusted fibre glass door card that lines up with the outer door skin, so you do not look at the edge from the inside...

Would you like these also?

Hi dman,all small repairs and fine adjustments can b done with body filler ,there are many makes available and most body shops stick to one they prefer , before starting u need to prep any panel with an 80 grit paper to make sure u get a gud adhesion ,mix the body filler and lay it on the panel as smooth and flat as possible ,once it's dry it can b rubbed out easy again with 80 grit paper ,for flat panels it's best to use a flat block and a long bed file ,wen it comes to your door gaps it the same principle ,decide on the gap u want fill in and rub out to your desired gap use something to measure your gap ie a pound coin or a bit of plastic to ensure it's even all the way down if u havnt got a gud eye ,I will put some pics up tonite  cheers jd .

Hi dman ,r u buying your doner car that would b a gud Christmas present ,
As regards the guide coat u can buy it,but I just use a black aerosol or some black base coat out of the spray gun for big coverage it does the same job ,as for the primer yes I use a 2k primer filler ,cheers jd

Only trying to help! I'd rather tell you in this stage wher you can still make changes if nescesarry...i dunno how to express it in english.. But i meat it positive... But maybe the edge looks different in the flesh..

What are your plans for the steering wheel by the way!?

Hi guys not back to work till Monday so going to start on the interior today,starting with fitting the seats,decided I'm not going to swap the dash as I want all my gauges to work properly as I will b using the car to travel abroad as well as here ,however I will alter the look of it ie air vents ,going with cream leather to match the Oem seats but keeping black carpets ,I hav managed to get an Oem centre console gear lever and gear knob and handbrake lever so this should add to the overall look,here's a couple of pics of what I'm aiming for cheers jd

hi jd,
have got the same seats for my 430 build but in black, I m 5ft 11inch. is there any more room to make the seats go lower with the brackets you have made for them or is that it, just worried I m going to be a bit tall for the seats, what do you think??
Cheers
Mark


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on December 27, 2013, 10:05:38 PM
Hi mark ,I think you could get another 3 inches if you cut the box section out that runs across the floor,I've only cut the brackets off  if I go any lower I start to loose bit of vision over the top of the dash, so u should b ok, it's defo worth doing as the Oem seats finish them off, how's your car coming along ,was Kev doing it, any pics I love to c other peoples builds  keeps me fired up ,cheers jd

What are you going to do with the dash?! Keep that of the pug?!

I noticed the pug's dash sits much higher then the original... There is this build of a guy who fitted an oem interior.. It lloks mint! However, the dash did not line up with the door cards...

If you want i can help you with a 3d model of a dash... So you can make one..


I received the movies of the windows.. I'll post them on youtube this weekend...

Happy new year! 2014 will be the year you drive that pretty ride!!! Yeah!!!

Cheers!

Hi dman ,I'm keeping the pug dash just changing the vents to round ones ,
 
Hi guys had a gud day on her today, started with the centre console  I made a new top for the transmission tunnel which allowed the centre console to sit nice and flat, I made this out of some alloy composite , I cut the nessasary holes in it then screwed and glued some wood battens  on the side then made some brackets on the tunnel to fix it on,next job was to fit the handbrake lever al this needed was 3 new holes drilling to locate it and a hole cut for the cable to come through it also had to b raised up about an inch and a half with some spacers it looks great , well happy here's a few pics so far cheers jd

that vent looks very nice is it ODM myself i managed to get a proper handbrake for my one for £53 on ebay today so just the centre console now to get, plus the ash try and the other buttons..

Are you changing the clock faces or leaving them standard the reason i ask is i don't know whether i will get the F40 original clocks installed this month or not as the standard dash has to be modified to fit it. so i would be looking to get a dash for it.

I'm looking forward to see that as i have to adjust it aswell...

Are you going to leave the sun flaps in place??.. In my opinion they are positioned too far back to have any effect.. They are in the position of the pug.. What are your thoughts?

Cheers


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: Drew355 on January 11, 2014, 09:03:25 AM
I have fitted the visors back in all my builds and used the clips to hold the roof in place so you can't see any fixings. The clips are like a half clamp so hold it well. I know what you mean about not being much use when flat to the 'window' but when tilted down they do help. Then again I'm 6ft5 so my head is nearly out through the roof on these cars anyway!

How do you plan on covering the roof lining? I have done a textured finish sprayed on on one and an alcantara finish glued on as a single piece on another . The alcantara was a real pain to get on without creases where the visors go.

Just realised youre not talking about the extreme fibreglass roof. Keep forgetting you don't need it as yours isn't a fake firewall, its REAL! Hehe!


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on January 11, 2014, 09:18:29 AM
Hey drew, dman I'm working on the roof lining today once I sand it all down smooth il put it back in place and see what the visors look like as I havnt tried them yet, as for covering it drew it's going to b done in cream leather I'm going to hav a go myself as I hav done a bit before but if I can't get it perfect i will send it out to the same place that will b doing my door cards and rear panels as these will b cream with red stitching cheers jd

On a fun note a friend of mine called up with a little pressy here's a pic thanks Davey aka Davey grinder


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: Drew355 on January 11, 2014, 12:03:13 PM
Haha! Like it! 

Do you have the fibreglass roof lining then or are you modifying the pug one? You said modifying to the roof line, is that because of the window changes or have you done other roof mods? (If you already put this in your thread feel free to tell me to stop being an idiot & go back and read properly!)

If the leather is reasonably pliable then you shouldnt have too much trouble, you just need a good glue so when you stick it in the concave parts of the moulding it doesnt come unstuck. If you get a pro to do it, then I would guess they would put a joint line in the material so it follows the curvature better. The alcantara (or fake stuff I used) had a kind of weave so it stretched better one way than the other, which made it a pain. Luckily the visors do cover this area.

Hi guys ,drew yes I hav the fibre glass roof liner but had to modify the sides slightly because I altered the roof line  ,I screwed it all in place then cut the sides and refibreglassed them to the shape of the new roof line,I fitted the sun visors and interior light fitting today , just got to smooth it all down next and it's ready to b covered in the cream leather,
Dman as for the visors they are perfect for me in the position extreme make for them if I move them forward I lose more windscreen vision  ,

Here's a couple of pics so far cheers jd

Looks good! I do remember having to screw the edges at the B pillar under where the pillar cover goes and clamping that bit you cut & heating it so it sat properly. This left a gap of about 5-8 mm between the roof and door rubber at each side. I used the headlining  material to continue over and bridge the gap over to the rubbers, I found if the fibreglass went all the way to the edge the rubber wouldn't fit on properly. Not sure how you planned on fitting the A pillars, but they can be fitted invisibly if you put a bracket fixed across the back of the cover behind where the alarm sensors go and screw through to a tab fitted into the hole where the alarm wire goes. The sensor then covers it all up.

Hey drew great minds think a like on the alarm censors I plan to put a fixing there also lol,as for the edge of the roof I hav fibre glassed from the rubber to meet the roof lining I will leave A bit excess leather which will cover this and tuck under the lip of the rubber hope that makes sense , cheers jd. Ps yours looks gud .

Hi JD,

Just received my oem quarter glass! Happy like a kid!

What are your ideas about how to adjust the panel to the quarter? Im thinking about:

- flattening the artificial "b pillar strip" on the panel.
- filling the spaces with upol b... Sand it downt to the correct shape.

Or

use foam to lay glass over and when hardened cut the foam out from the back side... Dont know if you understand what I mean ... If not i'll draw you something up...

I was thinking about finding a aftermarker alarm sistem of which the circuit plate is shaped in such a way do that the micro switch lines up with the press point if the key button...

What are your thoughts??!

About the quarter: was thinking the same thing, however i'm wondering if there will be a difference in viscosity between the panel vs the upol b.. Thus noticable differeces in the finish will occure.... Is that a legit worry or isn't that a problem?!


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on January 23, 2014, 06:13:36 PM
Hey dman ,was thinking along the same lines for the key havnt had a look yet or maybe even manage to get the pug guts inside the ferrari key ,regards the quarter any finish u get with the upol will still hav to b skimmed with filler then primed so not a problem ,by the way great buy on the windows and the key cheers jd

Flipped the pic for you mate!  ;D (You need to hold the camera the other way up   :D :P )

It is all starting to come together now. Looking really good.

Quick qn, why is the starter button off to one side? Is it to clear the handbrake or something underneath?

Post by: ferrari360jd on January 30, 2014, 11:45:11 AM
Thanks Drew wasn't sure if that was the pic that was upside down , as for the starter button yes it's off to one side to keep out of the way of the h brake or more my hand on the h brake,  it's not that close but more for a precaution just in case , I plan to put a little horse in the opposite corner once it's black it should look ok cheers jd

I no the bulk leans back I hav got in at the best angle I can to allow a step it's got a 3 inch difference from top to bottom ,it may not be perfect with Oem but will give the best space I can get ,for me it's all about the quality of the leather fitted now rather than a perfect match to an original cheers again jd

Thanks for the great comments guys ,it spurs me on after working long days on customers cars, i did manage to hav a bit play around with dash ideas yesterday in between waiting for paint jobs to dry lol, here's what I've come up with so far for the centre of the dash still havnt made my mind up on which vents to use yet tho ,I hav three choices
 1   all black
  2  black with a silver inner ring
  3  all silver outer ring
 
 Any thoughts guys I no they are all black on the originall but the silver will match the centre console and the dash area  were the heater controls are here's a pic so far cheers jd

Post by: DB5F360 on February 25, 2014, 12:59:12 PM
If it was me choosing i myself would go for the black ones with the silver  inner ring as it would be more subtle.
But that's just my choice.
It's your the person that's going to be driving her and looking at them. Have you tried any in the car yet while your sitting in it might give you a better idea yourself on which you like looking at the most

Hi guys ,managed to do a couple of hours on her tonite, first job was to mark the dash where I want to separate It as the top half is going to be black and the bottom half is going to be cream ,I managed to grind a grove into the dash with the grinder and it looks perfect  I then enlarged the old air vent hole and trial fitted the new air vents looks like it will work fine I've modified the old vent tube to line up with the new vents  had to cut and glue that so left it to dry over nite,here's a couple of pics so far it has to be trimmed and filled yet , cheers jd .

 Cheers for the reply Dan I thought the same but after putting a bit of black paint on the new dash bit the silver ones are growing on me  cheers jd

Hi guys had an hour on her tonite before going to the gym, finished up the duckting for the air vents  totally sealed it so the air has to flow through the new vents, then trimmed Up the dash and the vent panel it's just about ready to bond in now, hope to get a half day tomoro as going on a well deserved Holliday  so going to try and get that done before I go ,here's a couple of pics  cheers jd .

Silver inner ring... Like DB5 sais...

all silver outer looks a bit less exclusive... Imo...

Maybe go for piano black shinny inner ring... Might look cool aswell..

Cheers

Post by: ferrari360jd on February 27, 2014, 05:58:04 PM

Hey janman I no what u mean but the ferrari dash is more squared off at the bottom so I will be following  this line along the whole length of the dash  cheers for the comments tho jd.

Post by: ferrari360jd on March 16, 2014, 12:38:39 PM
Hi guys quick update on dash work ,the top half of the dash is just about finished and looking sweet so I decided to alter the bottom half a bit also, first I've filled  in the two trims ,one above the glove box and the other above the switch panel to make it look more Oem ,then I decided to move the stereo as I hav something else planned more on that later ,so I cut the centre out of the stereo facia, I  picked up a set of heater controls which are as close to Oem as I could get and altered these to fit inside the stereo facia then fibre glassed them together, I hav also moved the hazard and heated window switches to the spares in the switch panel on the drivers side so will be altering the bit above the air con unit, this will all be painted in silver like Oem when finished ,here's some picks so far these mite explain it better cheers jd


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: janman92 on March 17, 2014, 06:54:02 PM
hey,
looks nice!
maybe try to get rid of this small gap between the vents and the gauges so you have a more flowing curvature

Hey John

It's really comming together now for you and quickly also  ;D Love the job you have done on the dash looking really good mate and another job off the list. Your getting closer to the finish line now and the weather is starting to improve aswell.

My own progress is slow at the minute but i'm still getting there in the progress of getting all the gaps right along with the crack on the roof and the wings done along with sorting out the front part like you suggested where the wings meet before getting it wrapped.

Great to see your progress though well done

You must send me the paypal details too when you get time so i can sort out those sill covers.

Hey John,

Car is looking great mate, fantastic attention to detail!

You mention about getting the speedo dials done, I am also looking to have this done with mine.

I can find the standard MR2 MK3 dials, but mine is an SMT so is different.

If you can get these done, I would be interested in a quote for something like what I have attached.

Cheers

Hi guys ,I was going to wait till the dash was all back together before posting pics but couldn't resist as I'm over the moon with the way it looks, just waiting on my dials,  and I also decided to redo the lacquer on the silver bits as I thought it was to much of a matt finish , it needs to be a bit more shiny  here's a couple of pics so far ,cheers jd

Post by: CdRsKuLL on April 05, 2014, 04:59:44 PM
Well, what can I say.

A very strange thing happened today. Normally when you see photo's of kit car's they look fantastic... then you actually see the car in the flesh and well, it's kind of a disappointment!

I'm very pleased to say this is NOT the case with JD's Ferrari.. Everything that's in this build diary photos here looks better in real life! His attention to detail is stunning..  From the hand built rear end to the shaped dash, it's just perfect.  I'm very nearly looking forward to seeing it on the road as much as mine.

Best build ever !! 

Steve

As for my car I did a bit on Sunday morning, I painted the steering wheel cowls to freshen them up and redid the silver on the console and dash bits ,I'm happy with them now it's more of a satin than a matt finish , cheers jd

Hi guys ,well the engine was finally  finished yesterday, got all the ancillaries cleaned and back on,just had the oil to change then bad news when I dropped the oil I didn't like what I saw it looked like there was some water contamination mixed with the oil ,so I slept on it and decided as my tanks are not ready yet I will pull the cylinder heads off and check to see if it's got a head gasket gone ,plus side I can skim the heads while they are off ,hope to be back on target for next weekend  cheers jd

Post by: dangerrous on July 04, 2014, 06:08:38 PM
no time line for this one I'm afraid, I get on it when I can. Once the dash is sorted it's off to a rolling road for initial VEMS tune up, then if nothing breaks it'll make a trip to high Wycombe for a fine tune by one of the VEMS software guru's. I'd like to see what this engine can really achieve with all it's restrictions taken out of the equation, i.e. exhaust, injectors, air filter and original ecu.

Hi guys well had a couple of hours on her this morning before hitting the gym,finished up the key ,I ended up putting the pug key blade in the ferrari key with the chip and it works fine and I kept the pug key in the ferrari leather pouch so I can just press this to open the doors  will buy a fob and put the guts out of the pug key in that ,anyway got all the cowls and steering wheel all fitted back on so that's the dash finished well happy ,here's a few pics cheers jd .

Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: phils99 on July 10, 2014, 08:30:26 AM
also, as Extreme dont have an "owners club" area at the shows, where will you park yours? I hear that the "Italian replicas" club dont like Extreme and DNA!! (I may be wrong!)
Anyway, I am sure that the DNA club will let you park it with them as we have had other cars there before, I can also ask the "owner" if its Ok, as, like at Stoneleigh, we always get a pitch big enough for about 10-12 cars, and if it isnt...we "stretch" it :-)

Hi guys had an hour on the car  last night i started one of the jobs on the list which I've been putting off for a while , the handbrake , originally I was going to use a pair of spot calipers and get a couple of cables made up  but hav now decided the easiest route is to make it hydraulic so I've purchased a master cylinder and started making a bracket for that last night , now I've started it it's flying together lol , will post some pics when I get it finished cheers jd

Very nice mate. I'm nearly about ready to purchase a 360 replica
Within a couple of days.
It there any advice that I will need for future reference.
My intentions are to start with the 360 and
Sell on to build another till I can have the lambo. Is there a high
Demand in the resale market. Or will I end up just keeping them
And having a collection lol.

Regards lee g

Hi JD,

am really looking forward to seeing your finished work of art..... End of next week do you reckon?
When looking through your diary, I saw your adaptor pipe for the washer bottle, but didn't see where you got it from, if eBay, what seller or item description was it please?
I also saw your comment on the "re:new member" thread, you asked if they were filling in the wing front joining strip, this has been niggling my brain, because I hoped to keep the wings removable, your thoughts on this please?
Much appreciated
Al

Hi guys ,had a really gud day on the car today , but not a lot to take pics of yet ,I bonded the windscreen trims in down the side of the windscreen ,left the one along the top till I get my challenge stripes on hopefully this week the daughter has promised me (she is busy tho lol) I then finished up a bit of work on my headlining ,I wanted it to reach and tuck in behind the door seal rubber so I extended the sides of this, now it fits like a glove so that's all the interior bits ready to send away to be covered in leather , I also tidied the wires up that sit behind the headlining and cable tied them in place, next I gave it a gud hovering out ready to start fitting the new carpet ,will take pics soon cheers JD

Hey Alex ,the windscreen trims were off a rover 45 I think, the two door hatch, I still hav a spare 1 you can hav to make sure you get the right one ,I'l post it down to you if you want it ,I did do a little bit of  filler work on the windscreen pillar to make it match the trim but not a lot ,  I just bonded them in using  the original clips  hope this helps cheers JD ,ps the scuttle panel is next on my list

Hi guys had a couple of hours on the windscreen scuttle last night  it's just about ready to prime ,first pic shows original pug bit and the bit of fibre glass I got from the original extreme guys ,I bonded them together but it was a bad fit every where, I decided I wanted it to go under the bonnet rear lip so I had to add about an inch of fibre glass to the edge ,this also made it very hard to get into place over the wiper ends so the easiest way was to cut it into two bits it now fits perfect , I had to notch too groves into it where the bonnet hinge just cought the lip , it just screwed down into the original metal bulk head panel , heres a few pics so far cheers jd

Hi guys ,I managed to get the scuttle painted Inbetween jobs yesterday,I used a fine textured satin black this gave it more of a plastic finish, then I used the original pug washer jets nice and small, I drilled two holes in the scuttle  and fitted them in then fitted it to the car  well happy  just need to give the wiper arms a coat of satin black to freshen them up and that's another couple of jobs off the list , here's a few pics cheers jd.

Thanks for the great comments guys ,it Spurs me on to finish the little fiddly bits on these horrible dark nights ,well I got the wipers all painted today  and fitted them on tonight so that's another job off the list , spoke to my interior guy today and he wants me to pop over and check on a few things but he reckons it will stil be a couple of weeks as he's realy busy   Anyway heres a few picks cheers jd ,


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: CdRsKuLL on November 29, 2014, 09:24:06 PM
So what's left? Can't be that much can their ?

After watching you dash completely change I'm very close to doing something similar I think. The thing that was stopping me was the cost of getting it covered, I never thought a painted dash could look so good.  I will need advice on what paint to use and the procedure if you don't mind. I've got a lambo'ish dash that needs a bit of work but after looking at it again it's just the dash pod that I would need to work on.

can't wait to see what's next.

Hi guys, Steve will be happy to help you with the process on your dash ,
 Well had a few hours yesterday and today sun was shining lol, anyway got back on with my handbrake calipers  I finnally got to small light weight motor bike calipers  but the problem was they were for a single brake disc not a vented one  ,so I split the caliper in half ( unbolted it ) and made two inch spacers for each caliper I then had to drill a hole through one of them on each side to transfer the fluid  also had to drill a counter sunk hole and fit a rubber o ring to make it fluid tight  ,anyway job done made some brackets for the drivers side to bolt the caliper on and fitted the braided fluid line ,just got to make brackets for pasenger side then give them a lick of paint  well happy ,here's a couple of picks cheers jd.

Hey JD thanks for the PM just finished reading through your complete diary... I can only say just one word to describe AWSOME. you have really done an amazing job. Been working on my car today too done a small video of the sound of my home made exhaust out of a length of rolled steal tube and couple of exhaust tips. Be looking to get the finish paint job done on my car soon if this works don't pay attention to the lines of my engine cover its not clicked down in place as it's just resting on the rubbers ;)

Hey mickey the mirrows are off a r600 motor bike but like everything else they weren't straight forward the first pair I got off ebay were only £25 the length of the arm was great but the mirror head was a bit small ( I could of lived with them ) but I saw a genuine pair and the mirror head was a bit bigger which looked better but the arm was to short  so I did a bit cut and shut job and made one out of two lol, sorry for the long story ,any way I went down the workshop today and got them primed and painted well happy ,here's a couple of pics cheers jd

Hi guys ,thanks I'm really pleased with the way the interior is turning out, it looks exactly how I wanted it, but you never no until it's done lol,

Well 2 steps forward and one back last night I fitted the stereo pod in only to find out when it was totally tightend up the stereo hit the master cylinder and made it sit proud ,so I had to reshape the top so the stereo sat flat not on an angle,so I ground that down and refilled it and it's ready to prime again today Inbetween jobs ,will post some pics when it's finnished again lol,cheers jd.


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: CdRsKuLL on January 13, 2015, 01:40:09 PM
JD, if it's because of the depth of the stereo then you could get a new one that comes without a CD player. I got one a few months ago for my caravan that is about half the size (depth). Radio / bluetooth and also has a usb on it so played mp3's directly off it.  Cost me £50 from Halfords..

http://www.halfords.com/sat-nav-audio/car-audio/dab-radios-car-stereos/sony-dsx-a40ui-car-stereo#tab1

Thats the one, now £45..  depends if you want to play CD's or not.

Hi guys ,thanks again for the fantastic comments it makes all the hard work worthwhile ,

Dan I couldn't believe the looks I got  people actually stopped and stared one guy put his hazards on and slowed down just so  I had to overtake  then waved ,     here's a picture of the paint for the trim ,

Steve I would love a pic on the front cover ,the last one I put on is the best so far I think just the back ground with the garage doors is not the best ,will hav some better ones soon ,cheers jd,

Alex she's defo a she with all those sexy curves  but havnt named her yet, will give it some thought .

Anyway had a hour last night, I started the top trims for around the quarter glass ,I cut some slots in the straight bit of trim I had to form the curve I needed  then put resin paste on the  back of it to keep the shape then filled the front with filler got that rubbed out and ready for primer today heres a pic so far cheers jd .

Hey, JD,
Just finished painting both my light units and noticed that the dip beam aperture is different on them, looked at yours and it looks same as mine, am I correct?
Are they supposed to be different ?
I.e. Is the near side recessed to reduce glare to oncoming vehicles, in which case, we both have the left hand drive versions  :'(


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on March 28, 2015, 05:24:54 PM
Hey Alex well spotted I did think the same as you that they could be left hand drive versions but was assured by extreme that they were r/h drive ones and when I took it for test the light pattern was correct so not sure as to why they are different   Jd

Hi JD
I have a question about your build if you don't mind
When you fitted your Mondeo Petrol filler and flap to the inside of your wing, did you remove the rubber seal around it.
And also, did you build up the inside of the wing to make if fit better
Thanks Matey
Mick

Post by: ferrari360jd on April 01, 2015, 09:32:55 AM

Thanks for the great compliments guys it makes it all worth while, it's been a long but enjoyable journey, I'm just loving driving her about now the weather is better, they say you are never finished building a replica but I think if you take your time and you build them right the first time  you should be, so other than swoping my front coil springs and a gud Polish I'm just about there. Really looking forward to seeing you guys at stoneleigh in a few weeks cheers jd.

Looking amazing. The rear defusers finish the rear end off nicely. Shame I can't make it to Stoneleigh to drool over it in the flesh as I'll be away camping with the kids. A real testiment to your hard work. This shows just what can be achieved with the right amount of effort and dare I say it skill.

Cheers

Hi guys , well what a morning, I went to join the Italian replica club the other night and they agreed to let me join  but said I would need some show car insurance to display my car at stoneleigh and other shows ,I will most probably park with the DNA guys but may park with them one day ,anyway after 2 hours of phone calls it seems there isn't such a thing as show car insurance and what I would need is public liability insurance which I already hav ahhhhh!.
Rant over lol jd

Post by: CdRsKuLL on April 24, 2015, 12:30:11 PM
Well, once upon a time.. a long time ago, in a not so far place called Stoneleigh.  CdRsKuLL had a DNA 360, there were only a couple of other finished DNA's and I approached the Italian Rep club and asked if they would like DNA's on there pitch.. My thinking was we are all builders and have passion for the same thing. They came back will a load of rubbish and it seemed that my thinking didn't suit there club. So, hence forth the DNA club pitch wasn't part of there little group. I'm sure DNA (Tenpin) who sorts it all now would welcome you with open arms and would be more than happy for you to stick it on the DNAOC stand. I'm hopefully going to be there with my Lambo next year ;-) (wink wink) .. We will have our own stand next to DNAOC so we can all flick v's across at IRC and get drunk together with the DNA group! :-)  Roll on 2016 , that's what I say. lol

Post by: Mickey_London on April 24, 2015, 03:08:37 PM
I don't understand why they are like that.
At the end of the day, all these cars are replicas. They are not the real deal.
Don't mean that in anyway disrespectful to anyone
They are still beautiful cars to look at, and I know a hell of a lot of work has gone into them
But to be complete snobs beggars believe

Good on the DNA boys and girls  ;D
Hopefully we will have a few more eXtreme's next year
So pull your finger out, you have a Lambo to finish now haha

As promised matey. The relays you can get from Maplins, RS components etc, these are simple to use, some with screw terminals, or get an automotive one which I am not so familiar with.

Post by: ferrari360jd on June 15, 2015, 06:30:03 PM

Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: ferrari360jd on June 19, 2015, 08:44:36 AM
Hi guys ,a little update my new front spring eventually arrived yesterday so I had an hour last night and fitted them ,

Now on a note of interest , on the way down to alexs I pulled in for petrol and went to turn the ignition key off but it was jammed solid in the ignition barel  so I stalled the car and filled up with fuel, lucky I hav a starter button  so she fired straight back up, I set off again then I noticed the air con unit lights were off and it wasn't working no heater blower  , we had the I pad with us so Di googled it and it looks like it is a common fault  apparently the heater blower unit  can run slow and burn a wire in the back of the ignition barrel ,anyway I just disconnect the battery at alexs so the ignition wasn't left on , so last night i changed the ignition barrel and key and its all ok but I couldn't find anything wrong with the old one, no wires melted ,anyway one of the Peugeot forums recommend wiring the heater blower up from a separate live not connected to the ignition so will do this just as a precaution ,cheers jd


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: Alex360 on June 19, 2015, 09:22:00 AM
Hi JD,
So the ignition barrel was faulty, were you able to completely dismantle it? Or were you looking at the wires that connected to the outside of the barrel?
I assume that there is a set of contacts internally, to pick up each position of the key, so maybe the higher power demand arced on these contacts and burnt/melted them internally.
The bottom line is that the barrel was faulty somehow, and this was due to the extra load placed onto it from the additional radiator fans. Putting a relay in as above as we discussed, will ensure that the ignition circuit will only have to power the 12v coil on the relay unit, and the relay contacts can take the brunt of any power required.

Well pleased that you got her fixed  ;D ;D ;D

Cheers
Alex360

Hey guys ,thanks mickey .Alex, yes alex I did take it apart as much as I could defo no wires melted but like you say possibly the brass contacts may hav buckled ,I hav wired the blower up from a total separate bat live through a switched relay like you hav shown so hopefully that's the last of the teething problems lol cheers jd .


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: dangerrous on June 20, 2015, 10:18:05 AM
Hi JD,
 And all others concerned with wiring up extras in their cars, any switchgear should be flyback protected by a diode. Luckily most relays have such an item fitted in them, but check to make sure. The 'spike' of energy released when the coil in the relay is de-energised can harm sensitive equipment.

here's a schematic of such a relay, the relay must be wired in the correct way because the diode will only allow the electricity to flow one way, hence 'flyback protection'

Hi guys. Well after driving my baby around for the last couple of month I'm really pleased that iv had very few teething problems, but I hav come to realise that I need to put power steering back on her as its quite heavy in tight parking spots, so rather than alter the engine set up iv decided to put an electric fluid pump on from a Peugeot 106 (saxo) it came complete with wiring harness and relay , here's a pic this is tonight's job  cheers jd


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary

Lol mickey that's why I was going to the gym 4 days a week,

Anyway after a late night I managed to get it all installed ,it was a pretty straight forward exercise, first I  bolted  the pump in the front luggage compartment  then there were 2 earth wires  one to the body one to the battery ,then 2 live wires one to the battery for the relay ( with a large 30 amp fuse ) and an ignition live,
then the 2 fluid pipes as I had a few pipes lying around I found a straight forward fit for these , topped it up with fluid and yeeee job done , wow what a difference ,here's a pic just got to make a cover to hide the pump next cheers jd

Hi guys , when I got back from my holls yesterday my rear springs had eventually arrived ( after what seems like months lol) as I was chilled out after holls I decided to get straight in the workshop and get them fitted ,also after fitting the power steering I felt the car lost a bit of feel so I spent a couple of hours and adjusted the front suspension ,I zeroed out a little bit of bump steer I had then I put 5 degrees of caster into it and 1 degree of camber on both front wheels and finally adjusted the tracking ,then I took her out and wow what a better car to drive, well happy , jd

Ayup JD,

Just wondering if you have managed to make a start yet? I am hoping for bit of good news after some thieving git dented all the roof on my new van and made off with my stowaway roof bars. I rang Ford today and they tried robbing me again, £728 for replacements.

Cheers

Post by: ferrari360jd on February 02, 2016, 08:38:18 PM
Hi tone ,iv just got to finish off this mini pick up I'm on with ,a couple of weeks and I'll make a start ,

Sorry to here about the van mate ,and wow that sounds steep for new roof bars ,


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary
Post by: Sparx01 on February 02, 2016, 11:24:38 PM
Nice one.

Yeah they are a bit pricey. I have seen someone selling a set on EBay and they are already on £380. I have been thinking it might not be a good idea to replace them because even if I use shear bolts i am sure they will probably damage the roof again before they realise they can't get them off.

Glad I only have £100 excess.

Tone

Post by: Sparx01 on February 16, 2016, 09:26:40 PM
Hi John,

How's the Mini pickup going???

I've been to Ford today to assess the van roof damage, only to be told the whole roof will need to come off, the complete drivers side will have to be repainted and the bill will be about £9k with the replacement roof rack.

After speaking to a few people they are saying the roof replacement is a big no go because of future problems, what are your thoughts?

Cheers
Tone

Hi tone ,the mini pickup resto is just about ready for paint ,I got it primed yesterday so should be done and out the door next week ,then ready for your beast lol, here's a few pics jd .

As for the van roof ,if it's done right there shouldn't be any problems ,but 9k wow I wish I got that sort of money for 2 weeks work , the last roof skin i bought was for a Isuzu trooper and that was only £600 .

Hey Chris, 3 weeks worth of work on yours you wish lol  ,hey if I was on 9k for a couple of weeks work yours would be the most expensive 430 ever built , although it probably will be already, but it will be the most modified one out there when finished .

As for the mini pickup the guy is going for the Oem look with solid grey body and black roof . Cheers Jd

Cheers guys ,
Yes Chris if I could fit yours in as well it would be perfect lol, I'll get yours down as soon as lees and mickey s is finished , I'll hav yours and tones on the go at the same time as they are more projects than paint jobs ,

I think most of you guys will know Chris's car will be one special 430 with the plans we hav for it ,the amount of genuine parts that keep arriving is never ending ,which brings me to my next adventure on mine ,as Chris bought and sent genuine 1/4 glass for his I measured them up and there's a bit of work but I hav decided to change mine and fit them also ,so here's to some very late nights again and weekends working on mine to get it ready for stoneliegh ,( nothing like a bit of pressure lol) here's a pic of my new glass arrived the other day ,cheers Jd .

Post by: Lacie on March 16, 2016, 09:25:57 PM
If you have the Audi windows fitted its really not as much work as it may appear since the roof and pillars have already been modified. There's quite a bit of fibreglass work but its not beyond your skills. The trick behind it is to sit the quarter glass over the B pillar;

Post by: ferrari360jd on April 11, 2016, 09:13:24 PM
Hi guys here's a little update ,I managed to get a bit of time on her over the weekend and a couple of hours tonight ,
So the pasenger side is ready to prime now and the drivers side is on the final skim , now as a few of you guys no I was not happy with my roof it needed a bit more of a crown on it so I felt I'd be mad not to do it while I was on with the windows , so I cut the roof skin off my spare Peugeot and trimmed it till l was happy  the result is I now have a nice crown which flows well ,here's a pic so far cheers Jd .

Lol Alex I hope I don't break down this year , is the roof rack for your tent and the new flag lol.

Hey dman  nice to see your in the land of the living it's been a while,  how's your car coming along .
Yes I'm over the moon with the new quarter Windows and the way it looks now , as for the roof I just cut the metal roof off a spare Peugeot I have and positioned it to where I was happy and welded it in and the fibreglassed over it. Etc, as the whether is getting better over here now I will get her our more and defo do a vid and post it cheers Jd .


Title: Re: Ferrari 360 JD Build diary

I noticed you have the window rubber on the roof. did you use that as a reference for the new roof line?

Post by: ferrari360jd on May 05, 2016, 08:28:29 AM
Hi dman ,looking forward to seeing some pics of your build ????,
As for the roof line it was really dictated by the new quarter glass ,as this had to line up with the edge of the door glass which Inturn created the line where the new roof trim had to sit , hope that makes sense lol ,  sorry didn't take any pics of roof as I was flat out on it getting it ready for the show ,cheers Jd

Pictures are coming soon! I found a good 1997 donor, all of a sudden the guy did not want to sell his car no more!! That was very dissapointing... 1997's are hard to find here... Any younger one will require a heavy inspection when the project is done.... The netherlands and their rules... Pfffff big head ache!

Next monday i am going to pick up an engine.... 90.000 km on it... So that is one step ahead...

Will post some pictures soon mate!

And ofcourse he said yes! So ill spend an entire weekend in the uk.. Just for the heck of it! I want to take this opportunity to visit some builders to check out their projects and learn some more stuff before i start my build... Can i come over to you and check out your build?

Hey guys ,I no this is not about my car but it is car related lol ,and it's Alex  who brought in on with his new car garage ,
For a few years now the right hand pilar of my Ferrari garage has been held up by an ackro pole,   This held a girder with about  a ton of stone above it , so today was the day myself and Lee tackled the job ,I hav a few new ideas to totally redo the inside of the  garage now ,   So here's the start of the new ( Ferrari car house ) , cheers Jd

Hi guys , as the forum is quite at the minute I thought I would post this ,it mite be a little off topic but a friend of mine and Lee's crashed his car the other night ,after a 5 year rebuild looking for more power ( bigger turbo, injectors, etc etc ) the day he got it back on the road he lost control of his pride and joy and hit a sign then the armco ,lucky enough his wife walked away with cuts and bruises and  he only broke both legs  , I'm pleased to say I'm happy with the pugs power , steady away cruising . Here's a pic of the aftermath ,jd

Good luck JD to you and Di, you deserve It.
Thanks for all the work you did on my car.

Hey Guys  sorry haven’t been on for a bit.
Thanks very much Definitely the best 360 recreation their is in my opinion anyway
And to follow John over the last number of years while building her among other jobs in between
It’s been a pleasure seeing this car be built like you said Mick The luck of the Irish Thanks.
But I’m glad John has entrusted me to be her custodian for the foreseeable future
the car will be getting more attention than the family.
I know YouTube has with me and the kids watching videos of it
So once again thanks John
