    Lift install day 2 /radiator protector

    Lift install continues. Had some friends help me get the ramps into position. Actually was quite easy using the engine crane. It is amazing how many uses I have found for that thing other than lifting engines! I hoped to complete the install yesterday. The directions and illustrations leave a lot to be desired. I have a question about the secondary safety lock and deemed it best not to proceed until I can talk to Bendpak on Monday and get my question answered. There is going to be a lot of money sitting on and under this lift. I want to make absolutely sure the safety devices are working as designed. Like the car there is definitely a learning curve on installation as I have had to do a couple steps over thanks to the weak directions.


    While I wait for that I worked on my radiator protector.

    I ordered a nomex honeycomb product from speedway motors. Looks like they are used for dirt track racing. I liked the simplicity of the install and it was pretty cheap so I figured I would give this a try. You can trim it to your desired size very easily with a utility knife.

    Here is a cross section of the trimmed off piece.


    I also got an attachment kit from amazon.


    Sprayed it flat black and here it is installed.

    finished the lift

    I finished installing the lift today. I put basically three 9 hour days into getting it installed. Would have been much more cost effective to pay the $850 to have it installed but I am glad I did it now. Still need to fine tune the cable tension just a bit. After it has had some weight on it they should stretch a little. After a few up/down cycles with it empty I was confident but still a little nervous to put my new Audi on there! Let that sit about 10 minutes to make sure it seemed good and then pulled the Cobra under for the picture. The Cobra is still in my basement garage workshop for now. Ultimately I am going to park my F150 under the lift. Thought the Cobra would provide for a better pic! haha
    I was anticipating the lift when I built the house 2 years ago and I installed a high lift garage door opener that mounts on the front wall of the garage so there are no hanging door openers to get in the way. That worked out beautifully. Now I can raise things up the full 13' to the ceiling.



    I also opted to get the pneumatic driven hydraulic jack that rides up and down the rails. Forgot to get a picture of it extended. It was a heavy sucker. Another great use for the engine crane getting it in position.



    Looking forward to the flexibility in both storage and maintenance options the 4 post lift will provide.

    Final Color selections

    I locked in my color selections today.
    I was already 95% sure but a fellow forum member made mention of automotivetouchup.com that allows you to order paint mixed to the factory codes. I decided to order a can of each color to have on hand and also to make up a sample piece. Previously all I had were the spray out cards. Here it is:



    The colors are:

    body - dark labyrinth - ppg 923677
    stripes - atomic orange - ppg 914927

    I will be getting the go cart to Whitby in the next couple weeks for body install.

    Scott,
    Did you have to shorten the rods on your brake master cylinders? I have the same brand as yours and Mine are very close on having enough room to adj the bias. If so, how much did you cut off. Thanks,

    I did not. With that being said I have never set bias before so I may have to make some adjustments when I get out on the road. Brakes seem to work good so far but I also haven't been able to properly bed the pads in yet because I can't get up to speed in my neighborhood and that is the extent of my driving so far.

    Your color spray out looks awesome! It's going to look awesome on the whole car!

    I am also very jealous of your new lift. That is going to be a game changer for you, I suspect.

    Regards,

    Steve

    Nice Scott. I like your color scheme. Painting the engine parts to match is a great idea.

    Looking at your new lift is going to cost me.....I kust know it!

    Hay is in the barn

    My go cart is getting picked up Tuesday for transport to Whitby in Greensboro for the body install. I had a list of items I wanted to accomplish prior to sending it away.
    Including:
    seat out
    exhaust heat shields off
    fighter stick shifter swap to the regular shifter
    remove trans tunnel cover
    remove wheel knock offs
    recheck all bolts for proper tightness
    charge the battery
    some minimal interior protection to protect the carpet
    swap the steering wheel
    Install the threaded rods into the bumper couplers
    Pack and label all parts Whitby will be needing



    My plan is for Whitby to install the body and doors, hood, and trunk including all hinges. I am also having them install their upgraded side vents which are painted to match the body color and install the windshield.
    Not sure how long the car will be gone but I sure will be anxious to get it back!

    Final tally on the go cart was 77 miles. Is that some sort of record? haha
    All those miles were within my neighborhood. I sure am excited to drive on some real streets!

    Also today I tried the pneumatic jack on the lift. Works great and really a neat piece of equipment. It slides fore/aft the length of the ramps and can be adjusted to any width so you can hit any jacking point. I also have a jack stand tray that slides so I can get all 4 wheels off the ramps very easily if need be.

    Not sure how long it will be there. Jeff told me to have it there at the end of February. Honestly at this point I have stopped expecting any time estimates from them. He once told me I'm not gonna rush on the car before yours to get to yours and I'm not gonna rush on yours to get to the next. I can respect that and appreciate the commitment to doing a good job however long it takes. I would like it to be quick because I'm just impatient! I know I will be satisfied with the end result.

    Whitby did not paint the cover. I'm not sure if the vendor is a forum sponsor so I won't mention the name but feel free to message me for the details.

    Yep got it from Stumpy's. Worked great and very nicely built. I will say communication took a couple attempts before I got a reply. I am assuming he is a one man operation. Be patient on the communication.

    Good to know on the communication. Thanks. If I can't get it in a week or two I can just do without. The motor won't spend but a few days on the cradle, I just want it for convenience.

    The wait begins

    My go cart was picked up today for transport to Whitby. Not sure what I will do with my free time until it comes back! haha

    Work is taking me to Greensboro on Thursday so I will be able to go by the shop and get some in progress pictures of the body. Looking forward to that.


    First person other than me to drive it! That was kind of interesting to hear the exhaust note from the outside.

    Those are simply stunning ... BTW a local guy in our area had Whitby do his paint. It was unbelievable beautiful.

    He also did a safety check on the car ...

    visit to whitby

    Work took me to Greensboro this week so I was able to make a visit to Whitby. That worked out great because my car had just arrived there the day before. I was able to go over exactly what I wanted done with the man that will be installing my body and that cleared up a few questions I had about the process. To a man everyone I have spoke with on my visits to Whitby is extremely nice and really cares about the product they are putting out. Of course I wish things would happen a little faster but I am very happy to have them working on the car.


    Then I went over to the paint and body work building and checked on the body. Here it is (the white spot on the nose is where I edited the picture. It has a piece of green tape with my name on it. That white isn't on the body)


    Currently it is in slick sand. I know nothing about body work but Whitby seems to have a few going at the same time. They indicated they like to do a step and then let it set up/ cure for a certain time period before going on to the next step. There work comes out beautiful so they seem to have the process down how they like to do it. They were about to sand mine again and then primer is next. Then I think they said more sanding, then color will be coming. Looks like it will take another month anyways before I get the car back.

    I had an interesting talk with the painter about laying out my triple stripe and how I wanted the thickness of the stripes to be and the thickness of the gaps between the large middle stripe and the two small outer stripes. Also what would look best with the stripes in relation to the hood scoop and front end openings. Something I never considered is he said the stripes where not really straight. He said there are seven tapers from front to back to make them look best in relation to the curves of the body. I thought that was an interesting point. He and I are on the same page about how I want the stripes to look so I just left it at his discretion on the exact measurements and spacing to make it look the best.

    I am really a type A control freak so just waiting at home for this to finish with nothing to work on will be the hardest part of the build for me! haha
    I cant wait to get the Cobra home and to finish this build.
    In the meantime I have a few things I am considering doing. Thinking about painting the back of the Kirkeys black to match the seat covers and a few other small details.

    Small update - the body is now in primer. Whitby also test fit the body to my chassis. Up until now they have done all the body work on their own frame at the shop. Jeff at Whitby said the body went on my go cart with no problems. He did indicate in the past for whatever reason sometimes they run into issues at that stage. Glad mine worked out nicely. Next is blocking and then hopefully I will see some pictures with color soon!

    index

    I have spent considerable time learning from others build threads. The amount of information is awesome. One problem I discovered was knowing I had read something and having to search through a long build thread to find it. I have learned a lot of lessons as a first time builder and have tried to be pretty good about documenting it. I decided to make an index so if anyone if looking for a particular item or area it may be a little easier to find in my thread. I am going to post this in the first post of the thread and update it as I continue to update the thread. Hopefully this will be useful to someone and save them some time.

    This is pretty a simple index. Sometimes the information continues for multiple posts. This should get you in the general area though.

    Scott, you are the man. I am still building and resort to build threads frequently to answer questions. You were kind enough to give me some thread pages for assistance. This new index will be like a book in hand. Thanks for the work.

    Here is a cross section of the trimmed off piece.


    I also got an attachment kit from amazon.


    Sprayed it flat black and here it is installed.
    Scott,

    What A Great Idea!
    If it works on the dirt tracks, it should give great radiator protection on the street.
    Painting it was a nice touch so I'll be sure to order one as soon as I finish this post.
    Thanks-O-Million!

    Steve

    Takes a lot of paint to get coverage. I probably did about 10 light applications. Did want to get to much in the honeycomb.

    Progress pics

    Huge thanks to WIS89 for sending me these pictures of the body in progress at Whitby. Previously they have done all the body work on their own frame. Here they were test fitting my primed body on my chassis. They will be taking it back off and blocking it and then color should be coming soon. I am excited to see the progress and color. Very appreciative that WIS89 took and sent the pictures when he went by the shop!

    First glimpse of color

    First glimpse of color from the paint shop. Not much to say other than I love it and am really excited. This seems to make it more real!

    Nice Color!

    How close is it to your wheels?

    Was that the intended choice?

    Just Wondering & Glad He's Moving Along Quickly!

    Like the color but surprised to see that they did not drill the holes for the hood latches or scoop fasteners before paint

    I have no idea what their process is. I was wondering about that. All the finished projects looked great that I have seen so I'm confident in the outcome. I was also wondering if they painted the body or stripe color first. Maybe this indicates the body.

    GoDad the wheels are close to the body color but not exact. Not intended to match. I figure everyone with those wheels has the same color so the body color didn't need to match. I don't think the slight difference will bother me but no way to know until it's done.
