Fibreglass Repair

16 January 2018 - 08:02 AM

Following on from my wing-ejection event, I need to try and repair some damage, if possible.

I've never done any such repair before so any advice would be helpful. Below is a pic of the damage. It looks like there is a thick layer of plastic over the fibreglass - is that right or is that how fibreglass comes out after buffing up? Is it repairable?

Attaching Wheel Arches

14 January 2018 - 09:32 PM

After a spirited run today, one of my front wheel arches flew off.

I had attached it with lots of black gunk (the stuff used to attach the panels) as well as some thin (too thin by the looks of things) wire mesh. I'm still very surprised it gave... seemed so solid.

I'm tempted to just try bolt it on this time and live with the visible bolt heads but it's been suggested this can create cracks in future as the wing vibrates round the bolt.

Another alternative is a piece of ally bent into a U shape and then more gunk but I'm wary of trusting the stuff now.

Any other suggestions?

Android Gps Tracker

04 January 2018 - 08:02 AM

Does anyone know of an android app that does GPS and speed tracking which can then be used with a video editor? The idea is to overlay a speedo onto video of a track day...

I only plan on doing 1 or 2 a year so I can't justify spending a lot on a pro setup.

Mot Question

I'm still 3 years away from an MOT but a question - if I have a windscreen, do I have to have a demister and/or heater for it to get through the MOT?
