I'm modeling the rear cross member, I want it as scale as possible,
it will problably be made out of welded and/or brazed steel :







Does anyone know if it's possible to anodize brazed alum parts ?

H all

You remember when I told you cork holds better the tire in place than silicone ?
That's right but it dosen't make me 100% happy.

That's why I've been thinking looooong time about a way to tight the 3 pieces of cork to the rim and prevent side movements of the silicone, but I dont want change the rim into real beadlock, I just found an idea




A 1mm round hole is needed in the tire (round to prevent any tear) for the key but not in the silicone as it makes it itself

I will try to do the ring out of alum cans so that I can braze 3mm rods, it would be ok for tight the tire into the rim but im not sure it is strong enought to prevent side movements of silicone...
I think the best would be 0.5mm alum

What you think of my idea ?

C’est magnifique! Je peux dire plus que ça en français, mais il ne va pas être très bien.

This build is just too awesome for words! And as for being “the slowest builder ever,” as long as it turns out really well, that’s all that matters.
In response to your question, that looks like a very well thought-out idea. Good luck!

Absolutely stunning work! I love your rear differential locker design. Looks flawless. What modelling program are you using? I mainly use Solidworks. Can't wait to see her done.

That really is some incredible machine work on the axle. I am not sure about anodizing if you brazed the parts together. Powder coating on the other hand would probably work.

Hello all

Thanks a lot for kind words, I'm touched.

at bluedually : I think powder coating works only on steel or at least magnetic metals

at dgm5186 : yes actual renders are from solidworks, the ones at the beginning of the topic are from a basic version of Alibre design. Solidworks is awesome !

at turkman : merci c'est gentil.


As I dont have the time to machine parts, I modelled the rear braking system (fake one sry ), it is very close to the final design :





This is on what I'll work in the next days
I'm waiting for 0.5mm thick brass plates to begin the "beadlock"

Ati

special thanks to Mike for the technical support
