Jaguar- Power by Ford

Post by BIG GAZ »

For those that are interested I managed to install a Wilwood pedal box with balance bar into the Shaguar on the week end. Now that it is down on the bump stops I will do some measurements for installation of the rear clip and 9" four link. Roll cage after that. Sounds easy when you say it quick. This is my first full on race car construction so any advice would be greatly appreciated. I will post some pictures to my member number 418 when I work out how to do it. Any hints?

Will love to see the pics Gaz but when you figure out how to do it please post a laymans version with step by step instructions so us other old farts can do it too. :D

As to building chassis etc just visualise what you want, draw a picture, make patterns out of cardboard or whatever works, mesure twice and cut once. The hardest part is thinking it out quiet often imho, just take your time and keep at it. If it looks right it is right has never failed me.
Good luck.

Gazometer.

I checked out the images on Lynchy's website.

Groovy Baby!

The silver really works for it at the moment... what are your thoughts for colour if any?

Keep posting and keep building.

Rev,
If I keep the silver then I would have to keep the nodding dog on the back parcel shelf. :)
I am thinking about Ford 'Toxic' which is the new XR8 colour. T hat should stand out enough on the salt and really drive the purists crazy!

I like your thinking.

Toxic should look great on the salt.

Could have some darker green bonnet gt stripes too?

I'll pm you my email.
