Build a Locost 7: Step 1 - Fabricate the Frame
Building a Locost 7 frame, at 240x speed acceleration. This is the start
of my build and represents roughly 50 hours of work between 4/21 and
4/28/2007 to construct the basic frame. Run at roughly 1000x fast forward,
it will only take you seven minutes.
My entire build log, with lots of specs, pictures, and info is at

5.0 V8 Lotus Seven replica (locost) very first start
Today marked the first start of the V8 Lotus Super Seven replica I've been
building from the ground up. 2.5 years ago I started with nothing but some
square steel tubing, wire welder, and angle grinder. From that, this was
created. It still requires a body to be made... and paint... and a lot of
other stuff, but this was a monumental step and a great Friday the 13th.
Thanks to everyone that has supported me and helped me out.

Lotus Super Seven Build : Step 1, Miata Teardown
As part of the Lotus Seven build, I recent purchased a 1995 Miata, 100K
miles on the clock but a good runner.
Need to extract the drive-train and other assorted goodies...
(This video features my 3 new best friends, angle grinder, breaker wrench,
and PB Blaster)
