Working on it...getting closer.....3D model almost finished and finalised....should be getting prototype plates cut in the next week or two, then machining done.

 

Sorry its so slow....life gets in the way !!!

Picked up the Prototype Bracket Plates today after being cut by the Laser cutting mob....then dropped them straight off at the machinists to do their bit. In a weeks time Ill be able to do a test fit !

 

You'll note that I have decided to use Mild Steel as opposed to Aluminium. The Reasons for this are purely economic....MS is MUCH cheaper, and there will be no need for further expenses of thread inserts, then Anodising. The downside is that it will increase the un-sprung weight....oh Well !

 

Im looking forward to picking them up !

Hey mate.

Price isnt finalised yet... and i wont know untill i get quotes on larger batches.... this prototype set is costing a packet due to only 2 plates being cut and machined and program setup costs. I also will have to factor in the cable costs...but everyone obviously will have the option of sorting their own cable.

Thanks for your interest !

LATEST UPDATE !

 

Got the Plates/Brackets back from the Machinist today. I have fitted them up....PERFECT !.....See attached pics

 

Next step is to get a handbrake cable sorted, but before that I need to remove the spring from the strut, and use a Trolley Jack underneath the suspension  to move the strut through its normal travel to ensure that the back-side of the MC4 Caliper doesn't foul on the bodywork.

 

The only thing that may need to be done when fitting, is to actually remove about 0.5mm of Pad material from the Outer Brake pad....Its just a tad tight.  I envisaged this would be the case from the 3D Model, and it has proven to be the case. Unfortunately it was a real juggling act to come up with a happy compromise regarding the Caliper offsets etc, and this was the easiest most cost effective way of getting everything in line without much more machining (and therefore cost). I don't see this to be a problem anyway.

 

I am heading overseas on Monday for 2 weeks, so its going to be at least 3 weeks until I can resume work and get it all finalised, but rest assured, with the major part now done, I'm eager to get it finished !

 

I look forward to your comments...

Excellent job dude!.....what rim size do you think this will work with? The lever sticks up pretty high ...or is that just because there is no cable attached ?...I am hoping it clears my 16s.

Hey !

 

I have 16's on My car, and there are no clearance problems....the lever does stick up pretty high, but its actually about 2" inboard of the wheels inner lip. Perhaps extra wide rims may be a problem.
