Shop Organiser

Picked up some really cheap parts storage bins a few weeks ago then knocked this organiser up from scrap:


Started out with some 1mm zinc sheet and 50x25mm tube scrap.

So I'm pretty keen to build a racecar (probably an R1 powered locost) but before I jump in the deep end I thought I'd take on something smaller to test my fabrication skills. I've started by doing some modelling on computer - this amazing racecar building site gave me the idea and motivation. Already the design in my head has changed from a side-by-side arrangement to having the motor and axle mounted on the rear suspension subframe.
