Progress for DR100
I have spent a little bit of time trying to get a few sponsors
The chassis is the main point of discussion
I need to be sure the way forward for the chassis is correct
I have to make the right decision on three options for the chassis:
Make good of the current 1975 Range Rover Classic chassis
Buy a Range Rover Classic or Discovery chassis and start from scratch
Build a custom tubular aluminium chassis
What has been going on?
I have been working on the CAD files for the entire car:
The chassis CAD is complete
The rear roll cage CAD is complete
The front space frame CAD is complete
The central roll cage CAD is complete
The suspension mounts are coming along well, central axle mounting points are the only bit of CAD left to finalise
Lots more angle grinding - removed large sections from the dash board and front bulkhead - very little left.
Space Frame R2
There are plans to rebuild this truck in the future completely from carbotanium composites.
This will be a long time in the future.
The chassis is being worked on at the moment to decide what do do with the front end and how to raise the front of the body to square it up.
The rear of the chassis needs a complete rework to be able to take the space frame rear tub.
