What Wilwood caliper is that and how much space does it need from the rotor towards the wheel? They look interesting for a project I have in my head.

Itís a Wilwood 120-12502 caliper. Itís 1.71Ē from the front of the rotor to the front of the caliper.

Thereís a dimensional drawing on that page.

Totally random but I have that same KentCNC dust shoe on my smallest CNC too. Rad.

Btw I'm always envious of your skill set. Super rad!

Thanks, Apparently I was already looking at these as an option. I'm going to have to do some measuring to see if I can work around the mounting ears. Shame Wilwood doesn't do these affordable calipers in radial mount. Would make life much easier..

Ah well, I'll work it out

Got a little further with the rear tray cover. It’s too big to get in/out if I made it one piece, but I want it to have a pretty big “lid” so I started creating a flange. First though, I needed to build a locator/support for the rear of the panels.

First side gets a plastic baffle to shape



Second side is made off of the first side. Pro tip: upholstery vinyl is about the same thickness as 3M double back tape so if you’re creating an edge that you know is going to be upholstered you can use the tape as a stand in. You’ll see me use it quite often through the interior fabrication process. Here since I know each side will be vinyled, I put two layers on the first flanged fiberglass side.



I missed taking many pics of the next steps. Now I’m going to create the inside flange the “lid” will rest on. This is where it can get confusing if you’ve never used a jello mold in your life cause you need to be thinking backwards and in the future. I stared by laying out where I want my cut to be. Then I laid two layers of double back (for lid vinyl and base vinyl) two wide (for a 1” flange) then masked off the “lid” side so the fiberglass would only stick to the base side.



Then I fiberglassed the flange (missing pics)

—Pause for Nerf gun painting with my son—

Next I cut from the top just through the lid into the double back in about 90% of the parts and put them back in the car. Then I fiberglassed the seam between the two lids.



Once dry I finished cutting the last 10% and began to pry the “lid” loose from the double back and bases.



Then I could pull the three pieces out of the car and peel the masking tape/double back tape and clean up the edges of the flange.



Still have a lot of filler work to do, but those are the steps I’ve done for now.

Still here. Just been driving and enjoying the car. Got another photo shoot in the books for an online article. This’ll be a good one.

Itís been a lot of fun, and a lot of work. I just enjoy building stuff and showing it to people.

Thanks! Iím really wanting someone to shoot a video of it at some point. Capture the car in motion and get some audio of the exhaust. Was emailing back and forth with an editor at BMW Performance magazine a week ago. She was really interested in the car and wanted to feature it, but was unsure how their readers would feel about it.

This was a photo shoot that a different photographer did of my car. It’s always amazing to me how different photographer’s visions capture the car so differently and it almost looks like a completely different car.

Nice read on Petrolicious!

I agree that some video would be nice especially if it is done to the same standard as everything else in this project. Got a buddy with a drone mayhaps?

You're really going to piss off purists at car shows now!

Had an opportunity to see the car in Seattle a couple of weeks ago: so, so nice!
