Re: DADS360 - THE Build diary!

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.

Re: DADS360 - THE Build diary!

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.
