I have been looking forward to this weekend all week, a full day with no plans other than move forward on the hilux build. Its amazing what you can get done in a solid day of work at home. Heres what happened.
I spent a lot of time making sure that the 0.9mm sheet was perfectly fitted before welding to the chassis, this takes a lot of hand filing to get right but when it comes time to weld its worth it.
Welding the 0.9mm sheet to the thicker tube is tricky, you have to have a very sharp tungsten and keep your arc very steady making sure not to heat the sheet metal too much or its game over and your filling holes.
This is my third attempt at an accelerator, i plan on making the cable come from the top and then ill bolt on a slider to get the ratio right, i used a spring off an old throttle body with an adjustable stopper so that everything is tuneable.
I ditched the crappy standard steering housing that i had and remade a neater one, i have to wait till i can afford a Racepak dash display before i can make the bracket, unless someone has one i can borrow?
