I know u said u wanted buttons and switches on the dash for the ignition but there may be a problem beacause they would all have to be water proof. Wacky doesn't really offer much moisture protection.
Yeah I will most likely buy some nice waterproof toggle switches from d1cky Smith or something. (Altho Devil Dave apparently already bought all these ages ago, I'll have to find out).
WackyBug now has the beginnings of a rollcage. I took her over to Vidler's place today for some quick welding action. Basically two rather long lengths of box section run from front to back now with another piece between to brace them. These are welded to the inside of the body.
I can jump up and down on the rear and she doesn't flex at all anymore.
I also removed all of the original MY wiring and fitted the EJ22 exhaust headers today.
Now she just needs a fuel pump, a fuel return line, the EJ wiring harness installed and the guages / switches.
I'll have do something about a rear section of exhaust at some point too I spose.
I was just looking up some figures on the old engine vs the new engine. This is scary.
Some of the WA boys will remember how fast WackyBug was with just the original EA81...
EA81 - 73hp
EJ22 - 135hp
Do the maths!!
would only need about 1m length wise.
They would do the metal you need. and they seam more than happy to cut it off into the size bits you want. I bought a bit of metal there for $1.20.
