ROUND NO.1

 

How to build a Shinoda Lampray, old school method

This how to is about how a thingie was originally constructed with basic tools, I have always built my cars this way. If you take your time you can build a really nice racer.

The chassis build will be a rear hinged ISO.

Lets get started.

 Shinoda Lampray

The tools shown here is what built this how to chassis.

This is the only part you need to purchase.

This motor bracket will accept more than one type of 16D's

 

02.jpg

Get a flat board

Take the Lampray body and a sharpie marker and mark the wheel base. 

 

03.jpg

Starting to layout the chassis hands on jig, "1960's Style"

Take the square and mark the required wheel base.

 

04.jpg

Additional line work added,wheel base, chassis width, pickup guide hole location, chassis centerline.

Some additional lines will be added as we go.

 

05.jpg

Mark the hinge hole location as shown,

 

06.jpg

Use your hand drill and drill a 1\16" hole on each side.

 

07.jpg

Take a piece of 3\32" piano wire and bend to fit around the motor bracket. We will cut this later.

 

WILL CONTINUE, stand by.

Center guide section, with the pickup guide end piece soldered together.

 

10.jpg

Motor bracket and pickup center section. place the pieces on the 1960's chassis jig and check for fit up.

 

11.jpg

Solder to piano wire side rails to center section as shown.

Notice that the back of motor location has been marked on the 1960's chassis jig.

 

12.jpg

Solder the purchased motor mount to the center section side rails. Use the 1960's chassis jig to locate the parts in the proper location.

 

13.jpg

Cut the 3\32 u-frame made in round one post as shown.

 

14.jpg

As shown cut a piece or brass tube and slip each piece of the u-frame and solder as shown.

I use a steel weight to hold pieces flat during solder and prevents burnt fingers.

 

15.jpg

Completed u-frame, Note the temporary brass spreader\spacer at the right end, to hold u-frame rails parallel.

Gene,

You are the Man!

You and Jairus and a few others post great How-To builds. Yours is awesome as it doesn't mandate an expensive chassis jig!

Go Gene Go!!!

ROUND NO.5

 

35.jpg

Any of the motors as shown will screw to this bracket. Build the chassis, put in your motor of choice.

 

36.jpg

Completed chassis

 

37.jpg

Completed chassis

Approximate just the chassis cost including motor bracket  $9.00

 

This build is "Certus" powerd and it is going to the 2017 Shinoda Reunion December 16 2017.

 

No bells or whistles, just an easy common sense down to earth build, simple basic tools required.

This method can be modified to fit just about any body. Side pans  can be reconfigured to even fit a Shinoda Large Dart or others.

 

This is the way it was done in the 60's,  good luck and happy racing.

 

Body mounting post soon.

 

END OF ROUND NO.5

WILL CONTINUE with body soon.

 

"end of transmission"

Gene making it all look easy.  How long does it usualy take for you to build a chassis like this?  Do you tumble your chassis once completed?

John

Yes it is easy, give it a try. I only build old vintage style.

About 7 - 8 hours off-on taking my time,

No I do not tumble as I see no reason to. If I want bling I will wax my ZR1  :laugh2:
