Procrastination overcome by necessity.

DFGT buttons fading, so (why not?) found a cheap used G25 awhile back.
But the pedal block no way fits the old cobbled up scrap wood racing console.

So after several not so sleepless days and nights...

another cobbled together scrap wood racing console.

The free swivel wheels are from an abandoned executive office chair.
The free seat is from an Alfa Spider that got better seats.
A neighbor threw away the plywood, (which gave me the incentive).
A friend contributed the scrap lumber.

Bought some screws.

Its 23.5in wide.


Almost done!
:D

...done enough.

The DFGT is not completely gone, (it was plugged in during renovation), so will worry about the G25 later.
Sure I will be much faster now.

Well guys with those comments its hard to be humble.
While working as a carpenter bosses were not so quick to share your opinions.

Really happy tho to know you all appreciate the effort.

Remco's Tyrrell cockpit inspired and encouraged me.
Hopeful this one will as well be an incentive to someone else.

So Andy, get to work, don't give up...its easier than you think.
Organization equals implementation.
Might want to ask a carpenter friend for some help rather than take a risk and make a very unfortunate rookie mistake.
Its a simple job but there is some danger if inexperienced with power tools.

Attached pic of old rig...back to scrap.
Check out all those good ideas!
:P

John, have you incorporated this into your 'projector' set up, or do you plan to do so later on ?

Paddy, referring to post #9 you can see the rig is already in use with projector.
The prior full size model of the Lotus 49 front is gone except for the nose cone you can see on top in front of the steering wheel.
Building new wheels and control arms, (white felt over foam) is the next step.


Thanks.
:D

Delighted to know that the projector is in use.  I just noted the absence of your wheel and control arms and as there was only script showing in front my tiny brain did not recognise that you HAD to have a projector in use.  I love the videos you have posted previously with the 'felt over foam'

(I saw the milk and biccies though ! )

Hi Paddy, thanks.
The milk and cookies...back straight comfort food that eases the stress of racing.
:)

Andy, (and TP), if you really want one, we can get it done.

All of the significant dimensions have been posted on the P1 Just Goofin Round thread, which was referred to while laying out the foam board pattern shown in the pic.

After that it is only a matter of finding scrap materials large enough to cut down to size and join it all together.
The only "hard" dimension I used was 22in so the seat had room and 40in from the wheel to the display.
Otherwise it is what it is.

If you had all the materials gathered pretty sure you and a capable friend could knock this out probably a lot quicker than you think.
A few hours or so, not pressing it, with time along the way to think about the next step.

How wide? Wide enough to fit the free abandoned seat.
How long? Up to you.

Forgot to mention, glued and screwed.


:D
