Track Bred EG6 Build… Part 14

Today we’re back with another update on the progress of Jerry’s track bred EG6 build. Continuing from the last time, most of the roll cage has been primed and is ready to be painted, we’ll also be taking a look at the progress on the floor along with some other misc stuff that is going on with the project. With this stage of the transformation being as challenging as it is, I took the liberty of snapping a lot of photos for you guys to get a real feeling of the amount of work that is being done.

As with all these post so far, I have provided the link below for anyone needing to catch up on the build…

Track Bred EG6 Build…

The fibreglass work has begun on the new front end design Jerry will be using, you may be wondering why will the front change, reason being is the ITBs have been ditched for a single plenum throttle body combination…

You guys can get a sneak peak of the setup here, but at a later date I would go further into the details…

A glimpse at what will soon be the new aluminum tunnel for the exhaust and it will also serve as the mounting position for the shifter setup…

With most things so far, the car will be running a new custom exhaust as well…

As I mentioned, the cage has been partially primed from the last post…

Closer look at one of the gussets after being sanded and primed…

A better look at the bars as the rear comes together… the next step is for the floor to be laid…

Mock up of the tunnel in place… also if you guys can remember the previous cage, you would see there is a significant reduction in piping…

As mentioned in previous posts, the fuel setup will be changed partially due to the redesigned floor. Here is where the smaller fuel cell will be mounted…

Meanwhile on the other side, the gusset still needed to be welded in place, sanded and prepped for paint…

In this shot of you look carefully you can see the basic outline of the exhaust tunnel, which will still exit to the left and also the bars in place for new seating position…
