20vt development

Evening all.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of new stuff going on in this section to inspire me at the moment... my new garage needs some serious work before I can get on with building the car, I have plans and will post once started. But mean time to keep my mind sane and in the belief I am still building a locost, I decided to do a little "CAD" work, but not Computer Aided Design, more the project binky type, "cardboard aided design".

I've mocked up the rear panel and made a diffuser, I'm pretty happy with the diffuser, I think it will look pretty good! Got a Nissan S14 short shift gear shifter which fits so well.... lots of plans.

Interested in this build, I plan on doing similar, but I have a Saab 2.0 turbo and gearbox (well complete donor car!

Is that a single 8x4 sheet as a build board?

What plans did you use as a basis?

A great choice of engine, if a little heavy. The 20VT Coupe is one of the best cars I've owned.

Hi, just noticed I didn't reply sorry, yes, the build table is a single piece of 18mm MDF, with reinforcement to take the weight of the car and engine. Plans, designed it myself loosely around the standard book chassis but tweaked it as I went, the thing I always didn't like about midis is sometimes the rear end can be too long, and the proportions look wrong in my mind.

I started my design well over 10 years ago now, the build started in about 2010 if I remember correctly.

Yes the Fiat 5cyclinder is a nice sounding engine, can't wait to hear what it sounds like with naughty exhaust and a big air filter on it.
