Title: Re: SchulzeA build and other assorted projects
Post by: SchulzeA on June 05, 2012, 08:43:11 AM
I assume you mean the saw? It cuts tubing/pipe at a low rpm with coolant on the blade. Doesn't throw sparks and Filters out all the chips in the bucket. I got tired of sweeping around the chop saw and didn't have $4k to buy a cold saw, so I built one for a couple hundred.

No major progress to report on the car but I have been writing programs for multiple parts. In the mean time I made this clock as a fathers day gift. Its a Snap-On replica lol

Good job on that Snap-On clock ::salute

Are you planning on making some replica lights?  I know usmc-butler has some, you should pm him.  This is his build thread, check out page 7 for the tail lights http://lamboclone.com/index.php?topic=12.msg1736;topicseen#msg1736 (http://lamboclone.com/index.php?topic=12.msg1736;topicseen#msg1736)

Yes sir! Thank you.
My plan is to machine the housing shape into dense foam. Then fill it with some sort of material to produce a mold negative. Anybody have  suggestions on what type of material to use for the negative?

I'm not sure how to begin to deal with the ground effects under the door. They have a huge bow in the center. I also noticed that the fiberglass has tons of voids and air pockets. Anywhere I sand exposes holes  ::counfused Hopefully some hysol EA956 epoxy will fill and repair this situation.

Im not seeing the shifter knob out of that yet ::scratch?! haha looks kind like a RC car with tires ::tongue... Your body may have a few voids and pinholes but atleast your 1/4 windows and side scoops are attached. Mine aren't attached and bowed like a banana! Won't take much and you'll have it good  ::thumbup
Title: Re: SchulzeA build and other assorted projects
Post by: SchulzeA on June 26, 2012, 01:36:48 PM
Haha. I thought they looked like skate board wheels. They will have a polished stainless inlay top with counter bored bolts, a small lambo badge on top. Then a tapered stainless neck at the bottom.
I find the body work difficult because there's really no bass line to start from. I've done vettes before but it's a completely different story compared to this mess. Thankfully no parts are shaped like bananas  ::tongue I get hungry in the shop sometimes.

I wrote a program for the headlight rings with the dimensions from the CKI rings. I received my headlights yesterday and figured I better give them a test fit before making the new rings. The larger ring is a bit loose on the bulb. There is a .200" gap all the way around. Do people make the rings smaller to fit the P6 bulbs? or is it even noticeable when everything is said and done?

btw, the small bulb fits into the smaller ring perfect.

Hey Schulzea I started a thread over on MM that I cant seam to find but I addressed the bowing issue of the rocker panels. I ended up cutting off the G28 ones and running some OEM ones that IKR made me. It really changed the look of the car imo.
Title: Re: SchulzeA build and other assorted projects
Post by: SchulzeA on June 28, 2012, 06:15:00 PM

The headlight rings are coming along good. 7 hours of run time and its about half done  ::duh Taking light cuts produces a fine finish that is more accurate and requires very minor sanding to smooth the surface.

I took the the dimensions from the cki rings. Basically took multiple dimensions and averaged them because the cki rings were such poor quality.
I will add the dimensions to my drawings and post them sometime in the next week. Have you made any other parts?

I wanted to find a picture of the original color, so I found the paint code on the car. It's simply the number 3. Guess there weren't many colors back then! It comes up as Newport Blue but apparently is the same as Melody Blue. How odd that my wife's name is Melody.

Hey guys, I bought some trafficstar STR wheels for my car so I can plan my chassis to fit and verify everything as I go. They came from eBay and the seller's name is Henrik (Wheels-Bay). He was really easy to work with and shipped my wheels the next business day. He has another set of murci wheels for way cheaper than I've seen them. If your interested, tell him Alan sent you from the forum and I'd bet he knocks off a few bucks. I will post pics of mine when they come in this week.  ::toothy

I made the trim ring from aluminum to produce a mold. I machined the ring instead of the mold because I can make as many molds as needed if they break down over time. The ring still needs some polishing to be perfect but its pretty close to complete.

Shop/barn progress. The shell is almost done! There's still a ton of work left to finish the inside. I'm wanting to prepare the floor for concrete to support a car lift. Who has a lift?

Very nice Lambo headquarters you have there! As for the lift, If it were I, I'd get a lift that you won't soon regret! Make sure it is capable of lifting any truck you may plan to get at some point down the road!  ;)  I would also consider what your intentions are, if it's storage you need then a 4 poster would be an excellent choice! If you actually plan on using it to work on vehicles I would recommend a 2 post, your local shops use that style for a reason! This one should work for most anything you would throw at it! Enjoy!!!  ::wave

How high are your ceilings?  This will dictate which hoist will work.  We put a two-post hoist in my son's garage which has 10' ceilings.  Guess what.  The upper cross beam connector is up in the attic.  You won't be able to raise a car with the hood up.  If you are working on a pickup, you will be bent over (hard on the back).  We really needed a 14' ceiling.  A 4-poster will have the tire rails in the way of repairs but is good for storage.  Find a hoist that is installed and being used and check their ceiling height.

As you have quite an extensive building there .. ::toothy , and you havn't laid a floor yet ... I would suggest one of these twin cylinder type - pic attached . This gives you a flush floor when it is down and no post to hinder your entry / exit from the vehicle .

Just some digging reqd...

I have a Western Lift two-post lift at the shop and I love it, we have had it over 7 years now and not one single problem. Installing it was super easy also. Try and find one you like and see what the minimum floor thickness has to be for the particular model that you select.  ::salute

Thanks for the info guys.
Jim, the ceiling will be at 12'. Good point on the tire rails. They would make it difficult for suspension jobs. Which happen pretty often due to our local roads  :-\
String, I like the post less idea! Digging is not a problem.
I'll check out the links everyone has provided.

Working on interior button molds for my plastic injection machine. I have the 3rd piece of the mold complete, but I got a new phone and lost some photos. I'll take some new ones soon. These buttons will be made of polycarbonate and laser etched to function exactly like OE. Also the rear of the button will have a seat to fit on top of a illuminated switch. This allows people to mount the switches in a simple plate and then glue the button directly to the switch.  ::salute

Here's a few pictures of the plastic injection machine I designed. It's in the assembly process at this point. This project couldn't have came out nearly this nice without the help of Purple LP670 SV. ::salute He made all of the stainless steel items you see. All via text of print screen shots and prints drawn on napkins, yet each part came out perfect! The table and back bone is solid carbon fiber.

Robert, I'll take a look for the beer you suggested. In all honesty, I like the Keystone! It really works out well because no one else drinks my beer and the fridge stays full haha
Mike, your build is looking great. You are making the best possible use of those sticks n rocks apparently  ;)

I made the trim ring from aluminum to produce a mold. I machined the ring instead of the mold because I can make as many molds as needed if they break down over time. The ring still needs some polishing to be perfect but its pretty close to complete.
What are the measurements and the thickness of the plate? What kind of machine did you use? Is it all made of aluminum?

I'm not sure how any of your questions will be of any help to you.
T6 aluminum. I usually use something around 5"x5"X.500" but that can vary. Machine is a 5 axis Henri Lin'e

Used a 5 axis Henri Lin'e on this job as well. Solid carbide 2 flute ball nose for the 3D profile milling, 1/4" carbide 3 flute for the hole openings and counter bore, 1/32" carbide 2 flute for milling lambo script.

I'm still scratching my head on how any of that can be of use, but hopefully it helps!

I got some painting done with a fraction of free time yesterday. I used Majic paint from a local farm store. It's a strong, extra thick paint that would work really well for a chassis. I brushed it on but it lays out smooth like it was applied with a gun. I'll certainly be using it on my chassis.

I know and use that stuff! It will cover anything but my farm supply only has it in three colors: Caterpillar yellow, John Deere green, and my favorite International Harvester red.

A International red chassis would look pretty wild! We must be lucky because there are about 30 colors to choose from here in Illinois. Of course you can always order different colors online from farm store, or on eBay. Don't forget to order the catalyst harder as well.

Thanks, man
I just bought a bigger air compressor since someone stole mine during the winter so that helps! I started removing any rust that I didn't properly coat with chassis paint, not too bad. Hoist to help lift my body is almost done. Once I get a good amount of progress on my chassis I'll start posting.
