Chevette Rally Car Build

Postby robg88 » 07 Jan 2010, 00:39

Hi, just started on my chevette rally car, accuired most of the bits I'll need already, including 2.0 8v engine, manta gearbox, 4HA axle, new sills, front inner wings and rear arches, 4 link kit, uprated suspension ect.

Just a few pics for now.

Arch replaced, just needs filling and tidying.

Interior stripped.

Small update, fitted top section of the n/s inner wing today, used a kadett panel that I had to modify to fit.

Cutting old rusty part off.

Tacking new panel in place using wing as a guide.

Image
Stitch welded the new panel while shaping it to the existing panel.

Now just need to repair the hole at the front and fill the seams.

Some more progress.

Fitted a new wing mounting panel to the drivers' side, just a few repair patches left to do.

Image

Image

Also started work on the n/s/r arch, couldn't finish it off due to the joggling tool not fitting between the outer and inner arch :evil:, so I'll have to make my own.

And stripped the axle and started to grind off the old brackets, the hubs are being re drilled to 100 PCD.

Got some work done over the past week, new n/s/r arch and sill fitted, rear turrets fitted, and rear seat panel removed ready for fitting the 4 link boxes, also finished the repair work on both front inner wings.
Pics will be posted shortly.
