This my scratch built replica Lotus 7, utilizes a home made space frame and suspension, fabricated aluminum body panels, home made windshield and roll bar. The car was also painted by myself, powered by a crate 3.4 GM 60 degree V6, Ford 8.8 rear axle. The car weighs approximately 1650 pounds with roughly 200 hp.
I built the frame chassis out of 1x1 inch square tubing, made my own front A arms and rear five link setup using 1 inch round dom tubing, roll bar is 1.5 inch .120 tubing. Aluminum panels are hand formed and riveted to the chassis.
