140914-Final-suspension-jigWell summer has come and almost gone now, and not much progress on the first car build as we would have liked due to the reasons listed below. And also have to apologise as no updates to the website since April.

The slow progress on the build has been due to a combination of things. First I had to spend much time finalising the rim designs to enable the patterns to be manufactured. Second designing the suspension has taken me most of the summer. And third, my partner has not been very well through the summer, so that has slowed the engine re-build and the general progress of the first car build. Oh yes, and forth I have changed contracts, and now down at McLaren. So this has eaten into my spare time to progress the designs.

.

But I have been updating our FB page regularly (click on the link below), and now have almost 200 Likes, and around between 50 to 300 people viewing each update. So the project hasn’t reached the stage we would have liked, but the designs are progressing unabated.

But we are still taking the chassis and body to the Porsche event next weekend at Brands Hatch, so Sat 20th and Sun 21st of September. So come and see us on stand 70. And weather permitting I will be running my laptop to display the latest CAD models, and give anyone interested an insight of how to retro engineer an Iconic sports car back from the 2D book and internet images into a full size 3D car.

All the best and see you at Brands, the Icon Engineering team.
