Rear space frame construction – Delta Ligero custom sports car

After a bit of time consolidating the build so far and planning the next stage, it’s all systems go on the rear bulkhead build and the completion of the rear space frame to support the rear body panels. The rear engine cover panel will be divided into two sections – a clear perspex section over the engine itself, and a hinged section at the rear to allow access to the transaxle, rear drivetrain components and exhaust. And who knows, there may even be room somewhere in there for a little bit of rear boot space!

True to form for a car of this nature, the rear vision out of the back window will be quite limited! We should be able to trim the existing bodywork to improve it somewhat.

The next job is to finish off the rear superstructure and to source and mount some radiators on the flanks of the rear to capitalise on the airflow from the huge side vents. Until next time…
