Thread: Andrew's 818S - LYTW8

  1. #361
    We used 3/16" material and you should have no issues, but side to side movement was a bit too much, so we added a vertical shear plate behind the car (as our struts go to the trans mounts)
    You may need to add a cable X or round stock X brace

    I love it when all of my measurements are correct and things fit as they should.

    I believe CAD said 13.5-14 gallons.

    First layers of primer are on. Still lots of sanding to do and some remaining body mods.

    I love it, I want to see more guys thinking outside the box and changing things to suit their tastes. Part of me wishes I had just finished the car and went back to modify it like Andrew instead of changing everything first.

    There is no right path with these cars. I enjoyed driving it around, but it bugged me that it wasn't more finished. I'm still messing with the rear bumper. Nowhere near complete.

    Very nice Andrew! The vent mods came out really nice. Can't wait to see this all buttoned up.

    I received a few requests to compare the regular design to my modifications. I focused on better airflow. Improved exit in the hood, more air into the scoops, non-parachute rear bumper. We'll see how it all works. I'll probably do this compairson again once the car is all put together.

    Thanks, Wayne!

    Wing uprights are back from fab. I'm still waiting on the machined mounts. I'll weld the cross braces in and then send them off to powder coat. I'm planning on black.

    Great wing mount. Did you design them in CAD?

    Looks great Andrew! Really digging that rear bumper, if only I could come up with a design of my own.

    Very nice body work.

    Are you sure those "embedded" strikers stick out enough? Mines are just tall enough to reach the doors and I can even space them out further (towards door).

    Thanks guys. Adam, I'm looking forward to seeing your widebody 818 in paint.

    Frank, the strikers work where they're at.

    Letting the parts cure in the sun. There is a small amount of blue metallic in this black. It was Honda Accord black.
