Clamp 1.JPG
Clamps162 viewsI found these at McMaster-Carr. Part No. 1590 A43 Draw Latch 302 SS, 1 3/64" Latch Distance. The catalog states # 6 hardware will fit but I had to drill the bracket attached to the windshield out to 5/32" to get # 6 -32 screws into the holes in the windshield post. A 9/64" hole was big enough for the screw but was not quite wide enough to fit the holes in the post.Mar 24, 2006

Hard Plastic Back Window130 viewsThis image is the inside view of the hard plastic back window. The window is held in place, on the main frame, by two 1/8" pins. The tab in the bottom center is a hold down snap. There is a tab on the top outer corners that keeps the window held against the fabric. This arrangement allows the screen to be independently mounted so it can be removed without affecting the window. The white cord on the bottom is the hold down string for the screen, it attaches to a snap on top of the main frame.

106 - Main Frame Final Finish, Top & Back77 viewsThis view shows the top and back of the main frame with the final finish coat of colored resin applied. I will put on at least one more application on the upper surfaces. Then I will install the hardware. I put some colored resin in the holes before putting the recessed snap sockets and screws in place.

Links cut, drilled and threaded.102 viewsThis image shows all of the links (except one short one that connects to the header bracket and is made to fit the particular car) with the holes drilled and threaded.
Some of the threaded holes are a "tight fit" and some are standard tap. The tight fit thread eliminates the need for lock nuts. Thus the bolts can be snug, but loose enough for the pivots to move freely and the bolts won't work loose.

Note that the header brackets are shown on the right side. One not formed into shape is also shown.

HEADER CONNECTION - STANDARD122 viewsThis is an inside view of the new header connection. This piece replaces the old link #1 and the old design header connector. I have made another slight change, the link comes out of the center of the mounting pad and I use three screws rather than the four shown here.

110 viewsThis is a view of the bow mounts I had "mashed" at the fab shop, in their metal break. I need a curved cross section on the end to "nest" with the bow for a good conection. Previously I would spend about an hour, doing it with a hammer and round rod, for each end. That didn't include the time to put a final finish on the piece either There is one shown finished, it took considerably less time to make it than my old method. There is an end view of one of the "mashed" pieces at the bottom of the plywood.

25 - Window Brace Bracket76 viewsThis shows the MK-I window brace bracket parts. The brace is made of 3/8" aluminum round rod with the ends flattened for the fastiner. The bracket is made form 1/8" x 3" aluminum flat bar. The brace will be attached to the bracket with two # 8-32 screws, the other end go to the "V" plate on the FFR door hinge.
Main Frame Molds 2.JPG
Main Frame Molds - First Parts69 viewsThis is the first main frame upper and lower layups that were made in the molds. My mold release didn't work well and the colored resin bonded to the mold is a few areas. I think I need more practice to do a better job. The parts made can be used, it will just take more time to do the final finish this time.
