Once I got the dash all cut I made a sealed box inside of the dash so the air could only come through the new vents , here's a pic with the vents fibreglassed in place ,

Hi Simon ,guys  ok so the dash continued iv finished all the prep on the dash put a coat of plastic primer on it, then primed it with primer filler so that's ready to rub out and paint black again , not to bore you with all the pictures of filling the dash to make it perfect so here's a few ,
The next job was the steering wheel , with the universal steering wheel and boss removed I managed to redrill the boss so it bolted straight on the the new st wheel,   job done, it looks great , cheers .

Looking great JD/Simon.
Love the vents JD very clever.
Doubt if ever I'd do it or be able to but I was just wondering what filler you use around the vents. I presume It's fairly flexible and spongy because the dash is soft isn't it.
Cheers in advance and loving the updates. :)

Hi Simon ,guys , ok with the dash done it was time to start the cockpit bulkhead , Simon managed to get an original Oem window so I bonded it into the extreme bulk and fitted that securely in place , then I made  the lower frame and welded that in place , next was to make some panels up and seal it all in place , that just leaves the window surround parts to fit and seal , ok so while that was all drying I repositioned the battery so it would clear the Oem engine frame Simon required, I rested the engine frame in place in accordance with the Oem engine side panels to see how  it looks and it will look sweet , ok some pics f,or now cheers jd

Hi Simon, guys,  ok update for this week , iv finished fitting the top window surrounds on the bulk head and sealed them all in place another job off the list , next up was to move the fuel filler to the correct side of the car  so iv cut all the nessassary holes ready for the new filler neck ( off to the breakers yard next week ) I'll also get the new Audi Windows which is the next job after I finish the fake engine build up , pics will follow next week cheers jd


Title: Re: Simons 360 build dairy

Title: Re: Simons 360 build dairy
Post by: ferrari360jd on February 19, 2018, 10:18:29 AM
Hi Simon , guys , this weeks update , ok with the bulk finished and sealed I sprayed some black textured pain in the rear engine compartment ( boot lol ) to tidy it all up, then I started on the fuel filler pipe move, once it was all disconnected from the drivers side I rerouted it to match up with the new filler neck on the pasenger side , once that was done I filled the old hole that  was left in the rear quarter , just waiting on some fuel hose to connect it all up now . And then  finish the fuel cap .
I then made and bolted a bar to the Oem engine cradle and fitted a hinge so it can be lifted up to store things underneath , next job is to now build up the ferrari fake engine  :), here's a few pics for now .

Love the engineering gone into the bulkhead, looks right and will strengthen the car too.

Such a shame this excellent work is coming to an end, but JD you must remember, if for any reason it doesn't work out for you at your new place, please come back, you could even go mobile, and be the Nakai-San of the tailor made Ferrari creation, that legendary guy who does bodykits on the 911. Food, accommodation etc provided, just get a big van!

Hi Simon , guys  short week this week as back to France for a week ,
But here's a little update , first I trimmed and bonded the mondeo fuel flap in place then bonded the Ferrari flap to it, then I fitted the filler neck so I'm just waiting on the filler pipe I ordered to come and then I can connect it all up and job done , also bonded the genuine alloy fuel filler cap on to the mondeo one .
Then it was on to the fake engine ,first I made and bonded some stainless pipe into the plenumbs then I had to make some adapters to connect the throttle bodies to the rubber hoses with that done I then trimmed and fitted the genuine cavilino horse emblem to the middle of the plenumbs ,next job is to get it all preped and painted in the red crackle finish then I can put it all together.  Here's a few pics cheers jd

Looking well Simon,

I need to sort my genuine FAKE engine. LOL

Tone


Title: Re: Simons 360 build dairy
Post by: simonc64 on February 25, 2018, 06:48:37 PM
Hi Tone, I did spend quite a bit on genuine parts to make it look less fake, and hopefully in JD's hands no one will be able to tell the difference.
Well worth looking around the web and breakers and definitely much better than the painted fibreglass  alternatives. The different bits have come from Germany, France Italy. USA and even Australia just gotta keep looking!


Title: Re: Simons 360 build dairy
Post by: Sparx01 on February 25, 2018, 08:19:20 PM
I better start looking then. lol


Title: Re: Simons 360 build dairy
Post by: ferrari360jd on March 17, 2018, 10:08:17 AM
Hi Simon , guys here an update for this week on the rear fake engine. With all the genuine bits in hand I set about to make it all look as real as possible , first I cut and shaped a piece of alloy sheet to bolt under the Oem ferrari engine frame  next I trimmed the Oem ferrari inlet manifold and bolted that to the alloy sheet . Looking good so far , on inspection of the plenumbs from extreme there was no where to screw it to the manifold so I fibreglassed around the inside lip and drilled holes to match the inlet manifold job done it bolted up nice and tight , the next job was to cut the Ferrari logo off the top of the plenumbs as extreme for some reason Mold this on backwards lol , once dressed up and drilled the Oem Ferrari logo was bolted in place , ok now on to the rubber sleeves which attach to the plenumbs ,not so straight forward as the shape is not round on the plenumbs so after some cutting and shaping and filling the sleeves fit and the  plenumbs were ready to prime , the next job was to make some adapter plates to bolt the throttle bodies to the sleeves, once this was done I could the fit it all together  now it was starting to take shape ,
Next I painted the plenumbs with the red crackle finish and once dry assembled it all back together , with a few hoses  added  and the genuine Ferrari oil tank and fluid bottle added it looked mint. just waiting on the carbon fibre air filters to arrive and that's another job done , 
Wow after reading this I now know we're my week has gone lol . Here's a few pics cheers jd

Thanks for the update Tone, I always thought it would, and it looks good from the pics, but to have a report from someone who's actually seen it makes it even better!

Hi Simon , guys , ok latest update the new petrol flap lever and cable arrived so I made some new brackets and fitted that , next up was to make some new fake caliper mounting brackets as the ones fitted were about as good as an ashtray on a motorbike lol ,then it was on to the last jobs on my list , removing the rear engine cover Perspex which was lose on 1 corner but a nightmare of bonder on the rest of it, then the headlights as these were just bonded in place as well , and finally the last job was the Audi Windows and modify inside the door so the door cards now fit with no gaps .  :)
With that list of jobs complete its now time to start prep ready for paint , here's a few pics and a pic of the list of things to do to get her ready for paint  ,cheers jd

Post by: simonc64 on April 08, 2018, 11:25:14 AM
I LOVE these sunday updates lol.....again thanks so much JD, sterling work as always! The list is getting shorter!

One question (to anyone on the forum) re the fake brake calipers..........I think mine are plastic (?), has anyone found anything more realistic, or even real calipers that aren't too expensive but do the job.  From memory JD are mine yellow? If so does anyone think these are the right colour on a red car.....just putting it out there to guage your opinions??


Title: Re: Simons 360 build dairy
Post by: Mickey_London on April 08, 2018, 03:18:04 PM
I bought my rear fake ones from eBay. They came from China so took a couple of weeks to arrive. Keep checking as they come up every so often.
They are fake Brembo and the shade of Red is perfect

Post by: simonc64 on April 08, 2018, 05:24:40 PM
Cheers Mick, i've just sourced some from China in red......they look ok but will see.

Just out of interest are you going for the IVA test? If so would appreciate a chat about that!

Hi Simon , guys , well it's been a busy week with plenty late nights as DI has been in New York for the week treating herself to an early retirement present lol,
So plenty bodywork done first I started on the drivers side roof then worked my way down the quarter then the door, wing, bonnet and managed to make a start on the passenger side  she is looking great  ,next up was to start on the rear engine cover ,as Simon managed to get a hold of a pair of Oem grills it was my job to make them fit, I cut away the fibreglass and removed the old mouldered vents then I reinforced the frame with some steal tube and refibreglassed it all back together I must say they look fab , a little more tweaking and that should be finished , here are some pics for now , cheers JD

Particularly interested in how you've merged the rear lid grills into the extreme tailgate, excellent


Title: Re: Simons 360 build dairy
Post by: Sparx01 on April 16, 2018, 11:28:34 PM
Getting sooooo close now.

I also have a pair of engine cover grills but didn't realise the work required to fit them, I think I best get them sorted before it gets ready for paint prep.

JD, it looks like another visit and perhaps I should bring my overalls.  ;)
