Mid mount Brat racer

Recommended Posts

Neat project with a twist!

 

I don't know about racing regs in NZ - but I do know that at least in some, if not all racing classes in Australia that CAMS will not licence/certify a vehicle for racing if it's got a sunroof that's glass. I don't know about the moon roof etc.

 

I mention this as you've got the "targa top" brumby body in use there. Settlement creek racing was going to use the same brumby type for off-road racing until CAMS told them otherwise in their initial inquiries about their build.

 

I hope it's not the case with all the work you've already put into this beast!

 

Cheers

Thanks for your advice about the T tops.

We are going to replace them with a lighter alloy or pollycarb pieces but for now they look cool.

Time for the good stuff to happen.

 

Engine Bay 2

 

The engine bays looking good. Cross member installed, Suspension installed.

 

F Boot

 
The front nearly ready for fuel cell, brake lines,steering lines and still have to put tower to rail brace in.
 

F Bumper 2

 

The front is all mocked up and braces for grill and bumper done.

Has a wrx front bumper installed and the brumby grill, still with to front guards to be flared to fit rims and tyres it will line up fine.

I no the gap looks bad between the guard and bumper but trust me, when we finish it will look fine.

 

radiator mounted

 
Radiator mounted and ready for piping up.
 
And for the first look at the rear flared guard.
 

R Guard 3

 
Still some work to do.
Not to sure what to do at the front lower section of the guard,
but a spoob load or cardboard and tape will come up with something.
 
Its taking a long time to get to this stage but now enjoying making and fitting stuff.

Looks good mate!

 

Rear flare: thought of a 70's inspired inverted duck tail upward "scoop" from the lower body edge up to meet the flare?

 

With some sort of similar scoop on the front end, either the flare or the front bar, it'll look schmick I reckon!

 

Cheers
