  1. I was wondering the same thing, and haven't seen an answer yet. I'm still using the mk1 from right after you started this thread and its still going strong.
  2. You will be fine sharing that info helping each other is the point of this thread right simul8r still loving my mk1 rig for over a year now.
  3. Isn't 67 the first year of the Camaro? I believe the Mustang was 64 1/2 then the Camaro followed in 67.
  4. I hooked it to the rig itself I used a piece of L steel and a piece of tubing. Ran a bolt through it with a washer and wala http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb4 ... 56_620.jpg
  5. I went with the butkicker gamer2 and mounted it to the rig just behind the seat I hardly turn it up and the wife complaines so it must be working properly http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb4 ... simrig.jpg
  6. Did it scratch through to the white or just indent the black surface? Just wondering how it held up to the clamps vs my key test. I like the make it fit option with this stuff its so much simpler then at work where I have to put it back in the mill, lathe, grinder ect. to "make it fit" actually at work its "bring it in to print" but make it fit sounds funner
  7. Looks great. I'm glad you like it. It should hold up better than paint for sure. I have a feeling this will be the new standard for painting sim rigs. I love that textured finish, it does give it that steel look. 200 grit I just used a red scotch bright.
  8. simul8r, did you try that spray in bed liner that you pm me about yet? I would like to know what you think of it, I think its the greatest thing since sliced bread when it comes to painting a rig, it doesnt scratch and gives a nice texture imho. I just took a key to my rig and on the main surface it scratched an indent into the pvc but it remained black , Then I tried in a seam inbetween two joints that wasnt scuffed and it did chip out then I tried the wood, it gouged into the wood but the color stayed I hope this helps you determine if this is a good way to paint your rig.
  9. How high was that lift kit roadghost did for his rig? maybe that design would help. I think he posted some pictures towards the middle of the thread. happy hunting
  10. Hmm I may have to mod mine for the new wheel deck for added leg room. I never noticed until you mentioned it
  11. Now I am excited I want the upgraded one. I was asked to build another one but I might wait and they may just get a hand me down rig. Hurry I cant wait. I want a new toy
  12. He couldnt get out but he got it and it held. I rolled him out onto the floor and had to assist him back to his feet. ok maybe 350 but he feels hevier than my ninja 650r He tests my patience and my strength getting him off the floor but when you get married you get the family too and I knew that going into it. The family does enjoy it when my sister inlaws bf comes over we just leave him and go do our activites without him And yes we have to include the yorki he was in our wedding in a litte tux. walked down the isle by my wifes 3yr old half brother. "he was three at the time of the wedding" It was going to be cute or a disaster It worked out but the disaster would have been more entertaining i think. and yes it has been broken in properly
  13. The only diference between mine and the original design is that I made the floor the length of the rig instead of just under the seat and I ran my pedal plate under the front cross bar instead of over it for less rake, but thats just my preference on comfort and astetics. I was thinking of pulling the wheel closer to the driver but i didnt and thats fine it just makes me sit up straighter to race. I am used to reclining the seat for head room in all my cars and trucks but I dont have that issue in the house I set my seat on and set the wheel and pedals on and marked the seat position and thats where the holes got drilled and I cant even race with the seat all the way back now and it sucks for anyone under 5' but its mine and I dont care about them my wife is 5'4" and 1/2 "she says I need to say the half " but she can drive it. she is a little stretched but not bad. She's not that into it so she dont care. I do have a buttkicker gamer 2 mounted to it but since no one can get one we can cross that bridge later if you want. I built 2 so far one for me one for my brother and he wanted his identical so If I wanted a change I could have and just gave him my old one but I seen no need. I hope this helps. here is a link to mine if you want any other pics or close ups on anything let me know and I can txt or email them to you http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb4 ... simrig.jpg I added an air desk and routed some of the cables since this pic but still not done with that but I find myself playing instead of working on it
  14. I am 6'6 at 240 lbs and mine is solid, my wife jumped on my lap and told me I had to drive her around the track so thats another 130 oh wait 120 " dont want to get in trouble" and then her yorki jumped on too so thats another 6 lbs so you should be good. I used liquid nails instead of pvc glue for more tact time but the wheel deck broke loose and pushed down a little when someone used the wheel to pull themselves up but a little glue fixed that. actually I am glad that gave instead of the "insert choice words here" wrecking my wheel. so the pvc didnt fail it was the glue on the joint, so you should be more than fine. I hope this answers your question. a pic of mine is a couple pages back. actually my wifes "speacial needs" cousin is probably 400lbs give or take and he sat in it and it survived so you will be fine. I guess I could have said that right away but thats not as fun of a story
