Project 'Rusty'

Post  simonice on Mon Nov 03, 2014 11:24 am

OK, hopefully i can now post pictures, so here is my MK2 scamp we have named 'rusty' (no prizes for guessing why) Embarassed

ideally i want to have this on the road by Brooklands 2015 so we got a lot of work to do. Fingers crossed work will be starting next weekend when I move it to my storage location Laughing

Anyway here are the pics.....







More to follow once work has started. Smile

Couple of people mentioned about the seats. Not sure what i am going to do with them yet, but once i get it home i'll give them a clean and see if i can see any markings.
the base cushions are totally stuffed, but the backs are mint (apart from the green dirt)


Steve G wrote:It looks like your going to be busy over the winter ! I'm sure yours is my ones twin, they look like they have been painted with the same colour paint. 
Those seats look interesting, any ideas on what they are? If they are a decent sought after make they might sell for a few quid if you don't keep them. 

Do you know any more about the original owner, seeing as he had a few it makes me wonder if any of the long term members on here knew anyone who had a bit of a collection.

first new thing made for rusty. New name letters for the tailgate Smile 3d Printed. Only a trial for sizing, but think they'll work.

Sorry to go off topic a bit but what printer have you got ? Is it a home version or do you have access to a big one at work? I am going to put one on my Christmas list this year but I won't get too excited !

Yeah biggest i can print at the moment is about 180mm x 180mm x 180mm. I planned to do some bigger letters for the front but wanted something for the back too. Smile

As for the printer....

Its a home built reprap Prusa i2 , with a few upgrades like E3d all metal extruder (allowing hotter printing temps for exotic filaments), Full aluminium built heated bed and plate, ramps 1.4 controller ect. I just built it as a toy after seeing one on ebay, but its proving to be quite useful. The home built ones are a pain to setup and calibrate, but the support is growing on the net as they become more popular. if you decide to have a go with it and need any parts printing or help with setup/calibration just shout.

Thanks very much for the offer, I doubt it will happen this year as my Christmas present will be for building a shed to put the Scamp in I think.
3D printing fascinates me. I used to work on CNC milling machines so printing is sort of the same process backwards with none of the waste.

How about printing a Scamp or even just a chassis. I'd get too involved with doing that and won't get my one built !

I did think about printing a 'Mini' mini scamp, but sadly my CAD skills are not up to the task. Sad

Interesting CAD CAM sub thread emerging in the cunningly named Rusty thread, when I am at work I have access to a laser cutter, cnc milling machine that both handle wood and plastic happily  as well as dye sublimation printer that prints images on a range of stuff including plastic and metal sheets as well as mugs etc
There's a vac former, line bender too. So far we haven't got too involved with 3 d printing as we are waiting for the specs to rise and prices to fall. Also some vinyl cutting machines.
Over the years we have made quite a few  ahem prototypes and test pieces that have found their way onto kit cars - vac formed battery box covers pulled over cnc cut moulds featuring name of car, various stickers of all descriptions, gear lever gates and gear lever surounds, custom gauge surrounds, engraved switch plates etc so if anyone is stuck with a good idea we might be able to help in the interests of 'staff development' which is cheap but not fast! Also made some thin tri bar chequer plate wing protectors and powder coated them with one of the powder coat magic kits you will have seen at (the greatly missed) Newark Show.
This is not touting for busines or a commercial service- we are flat out most weeks so there isn't much tiime for extras but if we can help we will and I am unlikely to be back in the workshops until February.

Just a thought - would a domestic vacuum cleaner provide enough suction for vacuum forming?

Yes it works for thin stuff or you can do press moulding if you make an upper anf lower mould then you can heat thicker stuff in an oven and get simiar results.
