There's just not enough builds that incorporate a custom fabricated windshield washer fluid reservoir....
























Got started on the radiator shrouding also; and my ss wire mesh arrived...

This build is so badass! You do amazing work Matt! I am blown away at how fast you can build this stuff from scratch. Your tig welds look really good to. Makes me really want to get a tig welder.

Thanks brother, I don't feel fast, I've never had a build last this long...but I never had 3 kids while doing a build before either...such is life.

Leaning tig is fun. Wish I had picked it up years ago. I love laying mig beads, but tig is on another level of fun. The challenge and satisfaction when you get something right is a high. Now I want to tig everything, lol.

Looking forward to some videos of your ride!

Where did you get the wire mesh? I've looked at McMaster but there is a plethora of available styles and options. Got a p/n? You've got me inspired...

Pegasus auto racing supplies, cheapest I found for this size. Cost almost as much to ship!





Matt

Edit; they have three mesh sizes, this is the medium. Works great with 1/8 rivets with a back up washer, it's weaved just tight enough that you can move the strands with a carbide scoring tool to get the rivets through. Btw, plasma cuts it nice...no sharp edges.

Shroud done, steering and washer fluid resi mounted. Be about a week before I can get back on it. Gotta build some trailing arms for a customer, and strip a couple tons of copper wire...























Nice straight, short, shot from steering resi to pump...

Matt,

I know the motor is pretty solid mounted but are you worried about the tension on that ps hose being so short?

Build is looking very good!

Good eye Rob. Frankly didn't give it a lot of thought, had direct shot on the brain. I've got a 135 fitting I can put on the resi, and give it a loop around to allow more movement. Would be less than 10"overall I think.

Thanks!

Matt

From what I see I think he will be fine. My wife's buggy has an even shorter hose run from her resi to pump. Just two normal motor mounts. I was concerned at first but after putting it into service it seems to be working fine.

Another thought I had was you could cut off a bit of the barb fitting to allow the rubber hose to flex a bit more since there shouldn't be any pressure in that line.

Now that's a thought...and put a crimp ring on just for good measure.

Thanks

I had a hose that was too short, where the barb fittings almost touched. It leaked all the time.

I fixed it with the loop method discussed above, and have been leak free since.

Just some input.

I really like the shrouding for directing air to the rad. I'm interested to see with the lay back of the rad and shrouding how it works. I've thought of a less intricate setup, and it worked fine in my mind. Will be good real world experience.

I had a very short -12 from the res to the pump as well. Took some off the barb on both fittings (push-loc). Has not leaked in 4 years of racing.

So is that a perminate installed fuel pressure gauge in that pic? I was thinking of doing something like that. Than if the engine was running rough (or not running), I would have a quick way to trouble shoot. It's not like I need it on the dash. Have you done that before? Is there any problem with vibration or anything? If that's not what it is, disregard.
