  • K1 Melbourne Australia

    Hello all.

    I bought a kit from Petr about three years ago and had to put off the build till now.

    I am about to start again. My engine is the K24 from the honda Accord Euro (Australian ver).

    So I have a question. Has anyone found that the floor plate that Petr provides is very VERY heavy. The composite plate is hard to lift for one person. I would like to make my own out of Carbon fibre + Divinylcell core.

    I am looking to to do a wet lay up for the top sheet and bottom sheet (200g per square metre) add the foam (10mm, chmafered edges between the steel chasiss cross members ) and then vacuum bag the whole thing.

    Let me know what you think?

    Also, has anyone had issues with the k24 honda 2006 chassis where the right brace curves around the engine. Mine was too high and was pushing the body shell up. The engine cover was not seated properly.

    I had to slice off a section then cut out a piece of sheet metal and TIG weld it in. Am I the only one with this issue?

      Hi Gus- I have one of the original kits, pre Petr. The floor parts I have are of honeycomb construction and pretty light. I can't comment on what Petr offers. I can say that I'm missing the large center piece though so if you end up buying something, please post. I'm looking to buy something as well.
