08-25-2012 03:52 AM Part 1 Front impact beam
I never liked the idea of having a solid front end with nothing to absorb any crash energy. So I decided to install a front impact beam incorporating two Audi A4 crash shocks. Itís basely a mechanical system that compresses to absorb low speed crash energy. I had to make up a fitting kit to suit the Audi components. The front beam will be made from 80mm*40mm*3mm channel and will be sectioned at the back of the channel.

Spent a couple of hours today playing around with the tailgate. I don't like the roof line at all and will need to change the roof angle to match the tailgate better. I will also cut off between 300 to 400mm from the rear boot section when the time comes. This was just a first look.

Well the steel has been delivered. So out with the rotabroach and a few days later the car is now sitting on the jig. Just need to make up the sliding arms which will run over the body so I can take measurements from any point in the x, y and z plain.
