Title: DADS360 - THE Build diary!
Post by: dads360 on January 18, 2018, 10:44:23 PM
Hello all.

This will now be the home of the offical DADS360 Build Thread. I have been posting on a number of threads! (My Mistake!)

All new pictures of my build will be here on this thread. And this thread only. Sorry for the confusion!

Wow.. very nice build :-)  love the attention to detail and the metal fabrication.  Is it a complete space frame or is it still a 406 underneath?

Just curious, I've followed this build since it was a posted in the old days, is it still the dad building with the son doing all the media work, has the scope of the car development changed as I haven't seen any pictures or video of DAD working on the car?

Hi, everybody. Yes it's dad doing the fabrication and now dad trying to do the madia work. Ben my son has started his own fabrication business and this takes up most of his time. Google "iron octopus " to get an idea of the work he does.
The build itself has turned into a massive project, the basis is a Lotus V8 chassis powered by a 5.7 litre Chevrolet V8 engine. on top of the chassis sits the passenger compartment of the 406 with a space frame at the rear and a space frame at the front.

The text that went with seat pictures seems to have been lost on the ether. I stripped the seat down so I could lift it into the car to see what was needed to bolt them in. The subframe with the elctric motors in is heavy with a capitol H.

Latest work on the front compartment. Using the well tried CAD [cardboard aided design] method I made up a panel to close the gap at the nearside rear.
