How's my favorite build coming along??

I was just thinking the same thing, hopefully he'll come back.  I was living vicariously through him lol.

Pedro,

The build is coming together really well, it's exciting to have been following along and see that you're on the final stretch... great job as always!

Thanks bro, I'm still working on the darn doors but they are getting close to being done.  Just a lot of tedious little things to do.

Thanks Nick for posting those, and Neils I still plan to add another reinforcement bar at the middle of the door running horizontally but I want to wait until I finish all my window work to make sure there isn't anything in the way.  Thanks for the thought bud  ::salute

He added framing, you just can't see it because it's hidden under the glass.

Are you going to add some type of internal framing to your door?  I put a 1x3 (box) steel beam across the door around bumper height for safety.  In a side collision, this beam will hit against vertical structures that are part of the car framing.  Everything builds off of this beam, and I still have enough room for the regulator and glass.

I've also been working on my door windows and I bonded the run channels this weekend.  I still haven't found some proper glass run channel seals so a trip to the junkyard will be needed this week.  Now I understand why everyone says that the doors are the hardest part of the builds.  It feels like I have been working on the doors forever now.

I received my engine kit from Purple LP670 SV this past week and all I can say is that it is incredible  :notworthy .  I can just imagine how long it took to make the molds and then cast all these pieces, it is totally worth the money.  Here are some pictures so you guys can see what a piece of art this is:





And finally here is a picture showing all the pieces that come with the kit, there sure are a lot of them.

@ Neils

Wow great job on those, I love the way they open on the Aventador.  I can see you have gotten quite a bit done, keep at it!  ::salute

@ Mike

I put bolts through the top of the wing and then did a bead of SEM 39337 structural adhesive between the wing and the uprights.  Don't know if the adhesive was necessary as the bolts do most of the work but it can't hurt I guess.  ::scratch

Nice work Guys!
Pedro, what did you use to bond the fiberglass wing to the aluminum struts?

I just finished the active vents on my Aventador build this week as well.  It's a great feeling watching them function properly  :)  A video can be found here: 


Great job on your build!

Here are some progress pics from this past week.  I'm using 2" actuators to control my batwings and they worked out well, here are the brackets I made to attach the actuators to the batwings.





I also started doing body work on small parts in order to get them in primer.  I really can't wait to see this car in all one single color, even if it's primer  :-\



The wing got bonded to the uprights and the holes I had drilled on top for the screws got filled, no taking this apart again.

This is how I did the inner door frames so that they would be stronger and not flex as much.



I bonded them in using Duraglas after roughing up the metal and the fiberglass of the door shell.  After I did this I could really tell that the door became more rigid.



After it dried I followed it up with a couple layers of fiberglass on top and over it, don't know if this steps helps any but I'm sure it won't hurt.  Now my doors are super solid from the door jamb to the door strike.
