Just logged in for the first time in ages.

NZ enquiry: the gold CKC car has S2000 seats and the rest of the interior was trimmed to match. We have just taken the door cards off because they fouled on the seats; we have made a flatter closing panel based on carbon fibre sheet. We have also addressed the doors dropping with a new fix, sealed the doors and sorted out the windows so it now does not leak and wind noise is much reduced.

Even the Sparco seats supplied by Adrenaline did not fir without fouling the door leading to door closing and sealing issues.
Do you have pics of the new door cards? Would you supply them to NZ and what would the cost be?

Today was Certification Day.....

I have a couple of small things to sort out, but have been pulled up on the fact that the doors can be opened (from the solenoid buttons on the console) while the car is being driven.

Has any one else come across this ir is NZ a bit different?

I am not sure how you would have power to the solenoid when the ignition is off, and not when the engine is running? I guess a relay could resolve the issue. Just a bit of a nightmare to get to the wiring with the dash in place.... I am almost tempted to dispense with the solenoids and find a mechanical way of operating the latches

I had a weird door catch issue with the MEV 4X4. It had top hinged doors and was therefore required to have additional bolts to ensure they were not accidentally opened.
I was also asked to fit a buzzer to inform the occupants that the bolt was open when the ignition was on.
So you could consider fitting 2 toilet door bolts in a manner that does not damage interior panels, my guess is they may fall off once you get your ticket but it may be a way around it.

Does anyone know where I can get any detailed design information, particularly for the monocoque, I need to provide this to the certification authority so they will give the the necessary approval.

Ok...I will be picking up the Murtaya in a week...We have one more issue that hopefully somebody on here can help with...

Does anybody know what car the windshield wiper is from? Apparently mine got misplaced during the last six years or so and we don't know what it was sourced from...



Thanks!
Mike

I am not sure it matters too much where your wiper comes from as long as it fits the spline on the motor. The overall length of my wiper arm and blade is about 700mm, and the blade is 475mm.

The screen is from the Citroen AX. The wiper on my Minari is from the AX too - I would guess it's the same on the Murt, although it is conceivable that they migh thave changed the wiper for something more recent ...

Thanks for all the help guys--I got a wiper coming in now.

I went to see the car yesterday (was hoping to pick it up, but we all decided it still wasn't ready).

The body and interior were incredible--a big congrats and thank you to Steve Bruns and Steve Monaco for their respective jobs.

I also was reminded how small the car was--a lot of the standard Impreza components might be too big for the car, like the steering wheel, shifter (very tall), and seats. So, if anybody has any good advice on smaller versions of those components, feel free to speak up. The main issue with replacing the steering wheel is that I actually have cruise control now, and from everything I've seen and heard, no aftermarket steering wheels allow you to retain the CC control...

I did get a few images:

Hi Mike,
Did you need to provide any detailed information on the monocoque construction to get your car certified in the US.
I am struggling to find the info required for the NZ certification authority.

I haven't gotten mine registered yet--for the initial VIN and state patrol inspection, I only really need to show receipts; they don't really care about safety, etc.

I'll keep you up to date as I get further on the registration process-
