SSC Stylus being built, now about 60% complete.
1600cc ford cross flow engine ( rebore, reground crank, Kent fast
road cam, twin 40 Dellortos, 4 branch manifold). Sierra 'type 9'
5 speed box, live rear axle, will be painted metalic blue.
|The bare chassis in a nice tidy garage. Did not stay like that for long!|
|Rear axle, links and tank installed. Tunnel drilled for ally panels.Note dummy shockers.|
|Front suspension and steering complete (minus shockers).|
|Dropping engine in to mark out engine mount holes. This was a tricky job to get the engine far enough forward to allow space for clutch arm. Near side engine mount hole is at very front of triangular plate in chassis , had to make up special nuts.|
|Inner body installed. Notice I used the wrong rivets! Drilled them all out and did it again with correct large head rivets.|
|Body prior to installation.|
|Body set up and levelled prior to bonding down.|
|The dreaded doors.I ended up using 12 strips of ally to get the doors to line up properly.|
