Those rear uprights are lurvley! I´d like to see the car they´re going on.

I´ve had my man working on a drum parking brake within the disc bell set up for my Seven.
nearly there, just the cable retainers to sort, and fiddle about with the design of the actuator arm.
The shoes are from a Vespa scooter :)



When is it finished then? a mate of mine has invited me to drive his caterham 7, quite looking forward to it.

I don´t know if it will ever be finished to be honest. I like the project, so I take each stage as a separate project and try and do it without compromise.
Next step is to cut out the Caterham pedal box, and fit a fully adjustable floor mounted setup with pull master cylinders and brake bias.
No compromise on feel ;)
Of course it´s expensive, so I have to save pennies for each step.
The Buell has taken up most of my spare cash just lately though!

As you know, the only limit these days with 5 axis milling machines, is your imagination.

You´ll love the Seven, if it´s reasonably powered, and the sensation isn´t numbed with padded seats (I prefer Tillets) it´s the most fun you can have with your trousers on. :D
If you´re a big fella you may find it tight though. I opted for the increased dimension chassis of the SV.
Oh, and you´ll need to wear pixie boots for the pedal box, or you´ll be pressing the brake and throttle at the same time ;)

Why did I say front? It's obvious they are rears cos there is no kingpin.

:shock: not since the 50s!


Metrocab were still using kingpins on their taxis up til the year 2000! :shock:
Maybe it took the turn of the millenium to make them feel it was about time to "modernise" :roll:

Work continues on the Daywalker man cave. All walls now whitewashed. Have installed conduit for lots of new metal clad double sockets.
Now need to add joists and hangers to the roof to allow false ceiling to be installed giving loft storage and also allowing insulation to be installed. Six new 5 foot light fittings to be on the false ceiling.

Here is how it looked before work began

and here it is with correct number of joists and reinforcement

Next step get the bloody electrician to turn up and then board the ceiling and paint it nice and bright white

You'll save a lot of cash if you run all the cables yourself and just leave the sparky to connect it all up for you ;) and it will still comply with regs if you do ;)
