Cockpit detail

27 11 2009

I have been doing some  interia cockpit work, again pics are rubbish quality (sorry) but once I get a chance I will drag the thing outside and take some better pics with some good lighting.

It’s all a but rough looking as I haven’t done any cleaning up or sanding work yet. I will add a cover over the ‘arm rest area over the next day or so…then comes my favorite job (not) adding filler and sanding….


Wheel work

I finally received my rotary encoders so I added them to the wheel, they haven’t been hooked up yet though.

I am not sure if I will keep those dials/knobs and colour the top cap with different colours or go for the ones I originally wanted. The ones on now came with the encoders.

Good price too…10 units for $13..if they fail…who cares :), it also means I have a few that I can setup inside the cockpit and be able to use them for seat adjustment,  mirror adjustment…or something like that.

Clutch is next on the to do list, and I have  some carbon fiber stick on stuff waiting to be delivered…again still waiting on this..I wish people would just do as they say some times.


Engine cover/air intake

Again these pics were taken just after a trial fitting and look rough as guts as I haven’t finished it off yet.

What I have done from prior pictures is re-shape the back half of the unit. It never really looked right to me, so I cut and carved and came up with a shape I will be happy with once finished. You can see I have a little hollow section near the rear which needs a slight build up to finish the shape off correctly,  I was going to have to add fill anyways so it’s not an issue.

I really like the shape now.

More soon….

Looking great… so are you sitting directly on the MDF, or do you plan to build your own seat padding? Or do you have a standard seat that’s going to fit in to it (although looks a bit short of space for that to me)?

Going to pour and mold a seat nearing the completion of the build, but even now it’s quite comfortable…I just use a pillow for a bit of lumber support really.
