Nova Kit Car

Recent Jobs Completed (well not in all cases)

 

I only get to go back to the UK to work on my kit car once or twice a year, so as you can imagine progress has been slow. This page is a quick summary of the jobs done on the last visit (Nov 2007)

 

I had the radiator rebuilt with a larger core as I planned to fit air conditioning which would put a heavier load on the engine. I also fitted the air conditioning condenser radiator in front of the main radiator. I had to temporarily reroute the hydraulic pump pipes as the larger radiator intruded on their original positions. A new hydraulic pump will also be fitted so these were left for now.
The original front tub air inlets were enlarged to allow for greater airflow across both radiators
The front under tray air intakes were further modified to align with the enlarged air intakes in the main tub. They were also extended to ensure that all the forced air went into the radiators.

Metal grills were added to the intakes to minimize the amount of crap that could get blown into the intakes. although its a fairly large mesh to ensure the airflow is not reduced too much.
Finally an aluminum panel was mounted across the top (still with protective green film on) that bolt in place to allow for access later to the fittings and condenser radiator.
I finally got around to fitting fiberglass panels that go inside the front wheel arches to keep the road dirt and damp off the pop-up motors and give it that production car finish.
