Most soild axle cars have a parallel four link. Both set ups have advantages. I almost did the non parallel
tiangulated. triangulated links end up a bit short but do work

Motor is not very strong, so I'd like to do a little weight. The panels make aluminum. Aluminum tank for gasoline.
Probably saw a new garage, it garazh other. He repairs the car body and paint. Agreed to help where I have little knowledge.

В июне был в отпуске и сделал большой шаг. Купил и установил мотор. Сделал рулевую рейку.
Когда подошёл к изготовлению кузова хотел сделать красиво и качественно. Друг копировал радиус с носа и в компьютере увеличил до нужных мне размеров ( шпангоуты ). Сварил каркас и стал натягивать алюминий, чтоб иметь деталь. Но теперь буду снимать матрицу и делать стекловолокно

In June, I was on vacation and took a big step. I bought and installed the motor. Made a steering rack.
When approached to manufacture the body would do nicely and accurately. A friend copied the radius of the nose and the computer has increased to the desired size me (ribs). Welded frame and began pulling aluminum, in order to have the item. But now I will remove the matrix and make fiberglass

Ohhh! I like that body.

You are doing some good work on your car. Congratulations.

I have some reading the English part of your log. Are you writing the English part? or using an online translater? For instance your last post said:

but when I use the Bing Translator, I get:

In June was on vacation and made a big step. Bought and installed motor. Did the steering rack.
When it came to manufacturing the bodywork would do nicely and reliably. Each copied the radius of the nose and the computer has increased to the necessary size me (frames). The frame was cooking and became stretch aluminium to be detail. But now I will withdraw and make glass fiber matrix

Not a whole lot different but a bit.

On an somewhat unrelated note: an old workmate of mine wrote the first Ukranian word processor for the PC computer back around 1990. It did not even require DOS. Ukietype by Steve Loboyko. The world has come a long way since then!!!

Nice work, very nice, and your English is not so bad. Keep posting. My best friend is from Odessa(Texas). His English is not so great, nor is mine. :cheers:

Я хотел видеть пропорции и по этому мотор не смог спрятать полностью. Установил ручку переключения и ручной тормоз. Проверял рукой - удобно.

I would like to see the proportions and the motor could not hide completely. I established knob switch and manual brake. Tested hand-convenient.

Привіт
На товщину алумінум я використував 1.5 мм
і не потрібно було зміцнити жебрами (капот)
Яку товщину ви вживаєте?
Мені дуже приємно знати що в Україні також
будуются репліки лотус 7 завдяки Вам.
А пропо,..., Як вам подобаєтся Дохтор
Віталій Кличко ?
