Jan 2020 – Mar 2020

And finally, the 1st drive around the block

Body pre-fit

  Most of August was spent with body pre-fit work. The front and rear clams were easy to fit, but the main cockpit section and the doors are quite tricky and consumed many hours.

Body and more parts have arrived this week.

  My container with the body, seats, fuel tanks etc. arrived on the 24th of July.

Making progress on gauges and steering wheel controls

July 2018 I have been doing some 3D design work, 3D printing, graphic development and programming micro controllers  in order to get all the steering wheel controls and LCD touch screen panels to work and interface with the Chevy LS3 ECU using the CAN bus. I have posted some information and pictures in the build […]

Progress up to June 2018

Since the chassis arrived in the beginning of May, I have spent almost 150 hours working on the Ultima. It has been a great experience so far, reminding me of building a big Lego Technic model. Ultima send all the little extra’s needed for the build with every stage and component you attach and label […]

STAGE 1 ORDER DELIVERED – 4 MAY 2018

Hellmann Logistics delivered my Stage 1 order, with the black powder coated chassis and a whole bunch of boxes with other goodies. It feels like Christmas came early this year

STAGE 1 ORDER SHIPPED – 4 APRIL 2018

I finally got confirmation from Ultima that my order has been collected by my shippers.

STAGE 1 ORDER MODIFIED – 1 DECEMBER 2017

I decided to add a couple of additional items to my Stage 1 order such as the breaks, suspension, wheels and tyres to ensure that I can get a full rolling chassis after my 1st stage build
