    Are you going to use a tube chassis?

    Hey dude,

    Good to see your own build thread. Will be checking it everyday. ;D ;D ;D

    I have a lot to cover on my own thread but will be a couple of days before I can.

    If you have some experience with VDO gauges please drop my a line soon Luke.

    Again, ready for some good action here.

    Re: F40 build the odyssey

    Thanks guys mine will be slower than normal due to daddy day care with my 2 little ones, a 4 year old boy who want to help on the red car as he calls the Ferrari and a 3 month old little girl who needs fed and changed every 2 hours..Ok Ok who needs her papa. Ok ,Ok I need her I'll admit it..

    As for the Tube chassis aspect the answer is Yes a full on tube chassis with roll cage 1.5 inches and .095 DOM wall thickness. The main chassis will be between .095 wall and .120 wall. Iím still working that out. I have both materials right now I want to build the chassis out of the Oval, Elliptical tubing but Iím having a hard time finding it.

    SO IF ANYONE KNOWS WHERE I CAN GET IT HELP..THANKS LUKE

    Until tomorrow...

    I can understand the daddy day care thing. When I work on my car, the 4 and 2 year olds like to come outside and talk to me. I would say that it is frustrating, but I just love having my kids around. Keep the kids safe and keep us posted on your progress.

    I get most of my bulk metal at my local Metal Supermarket shop. http://www.metalsupermarkets.com/
    I do not know where you live, but out here in Silicon Valley, there are lots of places to quality bulk metal tubes.
