C3 Race Car Build

There are several conversion kits available to provide electric door actuation though they all seem to be around the $1k mark which seems pretty expensive. I'm guessing you're hoping to do something for considerably less? Do you have to have a working door on a race car?

The door is going to be fixed. Probably angled slightly and a bit cut out of it. The door doesn’t need to open and close but being Britain working wipers are quite useful!

Sanded back and fibreglass mat over the seams, made an effort to be much neater than the rear which took a lot of sanding before filler.

You might find it tedious but good to see you’re not sitting in the armchair thinking about it.

Almost there with the flares I think! Will need to do the body seam but that’ll wait till doors are gapped.

And aligned and holes drilled :eek:

Hood isn’t quite the same curve as the wings, especially noticeable on the driver’s side but for a race car it’s pretty good.

Almost there with filler on the front.

Wiper mounts on in preparation for a dry fit of the screen and sorting out how to modify the wiper door

Have a look at 3m underseal to spray in the wiper tray area, leaves a really nice rubberised crinkle finish that seals any leaks.

Wiper door now modified so it’s fixed and the wipers clear. Trimmed the rear of the door itself then made two brackets to hold it to the edge of the wings and some alloy spacers to take account of the clearance gap that normally exists.
