Nice work there, I really like the louvres and the tooling.

The seats are superb.

With the lowered manifold it became time to skip the old bonnet scoop en build a new flat bonnet with some nice louvers. Here is the tool that I made to press the louvers. Rescued attachment louvre tool.jpg

The firts stap was to cut the slots in the bonnet because the louvre tool would not cut it itself. I had to cut first small slots with a 1mm grinding disc to get access for the saw to get in. Rescued attachment bonnet.JPG

After smoothen the slot the used the louvre tool to press the louvress with a piece of wood an a hammer hitting on top of the upper louvre former. After all louvers where done it needed a little attention with some sandpaper.
The finished bonnet is made out of 1,5 mm aluminium plate. Rescued attachment bonnet2.JPG

I’m very pleased with it myself. It was difficult to get the slots ( thank you drhunter) sawed out straight, with the tool pressing the louvers is the eaisiest part.
Marcel: That’s a deal, give me a yell when you need it

Little update here. The seats are finished and in the car. Later on they will be covered with some fine leather…

That's looking great!
Why did you choose the Sierra pump?
My idea is taking an external Opel Calibra pump. The presure should be equal.
but maybe your right i must have a fuel-idicator.... so...

I want also a Tig which can handle alu...
But budget...always the budget...

Don't make it too beautifull or mine will look more ugly

grtz





Please feel free to correct my bad English, i'm still learning. Your Dutch is awfull! :-)

The first idea was also to use a external fuel pump. But then I needed a separate fuel sender and gauge. With that also had to change the other gauges to have it all the same. Because I used the sierra ones. That would be to expensive. Found a easy way to fit the old sierra bump into the tank. So, have kept it as with the old steel type tank.

Come on!! That build of you gone be a splendid ride to!! Nothing can beat those Donkervoort body parts that you have

Nice work!

One question - what angle have you set your windscreen? It looks a bit steeper than usual - quite like it that way.
