I didn’t mention this All German Motorsports jack because it uses Dewalt or Milwaukee battery….but I think you guys may want to carry a battery impact driver for axle nuts and tire changes anyways… Surely it has a wrench drive on it for when the battery is dead? The older version did.
The class 11 tool kit has a snap-on driver but I don’t think the battery is the same.ColeBModeratorOctober 4, 2020 at 10:45 amPost count: 1839
I’m just curious where we will charge these things. Don’t think you’d be able to get enough charge off the car. I guess when you’re at hotels… but that’s not every night. We will have a 8 day camping section when going through Mongolia. Also, lots of different electrical systems across all those countries. Needing different plugs and systems using different voltage. I think the more manual the better. But maybe having a impact and charging when possible might be fineJohn JonesKeymasterOctober 26, 2020 at 8:54 amPost count: 7082
Damn… Been three weeks since this rig got some love… I think Franz is going to get back into it this week..
I say manual jack… your soooo unlikely to even use it..FranzKeymasterOctober 26, 2020 at 6:06 pmPost count: 3797
Left off with plans for the front skid plate. Trying to replicate factory race cars.
Fabricated front upper attachment points today. Used 1.250” x .120” tube to brace to the strut tower. Then a 1/2” bolt up front. I should be able to get a flat piece through the hood gap to mount the skid plate and tube.

Love those old pics! So cool seeing all the well documented old races.
a guy who raced in a 912 last Peking to Paris said they went through 6 tires in 2 days in Mongolia… hopefully we can figure out better tires than them hahahaJohn JonesKeymasterOctober 27, 2020 at 12:54 pmPost count: 7082

Feels good to be laying welds today. I jumped around a bunch and kept it cool.Sheet metal patches to weld over the forward control arm mounts tomorrow.

Franz is busy welding some junk in your trunk…😜😜
We will build it if it comes.FranzKeymasterOctober 28, 2020 at 9:42 pmPost count: 3797
I started the day with repairing sheet metal around the forward control arm mounts, along with adding some small gussets to the sides. Then worked on the front skid plate mounting/bracing 1.250” tubes. Made sure the gas tank goes in/out. Fit and ready to weld tomorrow.ColeBModeratorOctober 28, 2020 at 10:11 pmPost count: 1839
Holy tasty Franz! Getting better by the second! Can’t wait to see thus one again in person too!FranzKeymasterOctober 29, 2020 at 9:46 amPost count: 3797
Hell yeah. We’re going make you guys successful.
The front skid plate is made for some “Point & shoot” style driving 🙂 I don’t like adding extra weight, but I felt like this bracing was important.FranzKeymasterOctober 29, 2020 at 9:22 pmPost count: 3797
Finished welding tubes under the hood, and the last of control arm sheet metal patches.68tintopParticipantOctober 29, 2020 at 9:31 pmPost count: 741

Yep! Another pair of junctions welded. Rear of the front control arm mounts/longitudinals and center tunnel tubes. Happy with the results.
