It's my hope that somebody other than Lucas was contracted for the wiring loom . . .  wink


Now you did Midget ... Let the Lucas jokes begin.

I did notice the Lucas name on some of the jet engine parts - I'm hoping their aerospace division has a better reputation!

Great photos Stefan. The wiring loom was made by DC Electronics and will be baked inside the chassis when it goes into the autoclave at the end of the month.

That is, easy to modify the harness as long as it's painted bright yellow. evil evil

Quick update on the latest news - Rolls-Royce have officially come on board as a sponsor - they'll be helping with the EJ200 jet and financially but they're particularly excited by the educational aspect as they're very keen to attract young engineers and to showcase their work - they're providing quite a large chunk of our education ambassadors now. As for big noisy stuff I have a few photos of the show car in the Rolls-Royce atrium and the EJ200 jet being tested (with afterburners on) Very exciting to get to see events like this - I definitely have the best job...

Just realised I never posted the finished lower chassis! Here's a quick sketch done just before the final skins went on...

Bloodhound SSC lower chassis by Stefan Marjoram, on Flickr

Here it is just after the last rivet went in with the chaps enjoying a well deserved ice-cream...

The next step was 8 hours (@80ºC) in an autoclave to cure the glue (which comes in tape form)...

NCC by Stefan Marjoram, on Flickr

And here it is - the first piece to go on the engineering plate in our new premises (we ran out of space in the old one). You should be able to see the access holes on the inside of the sills - should any cables need to be repaired within them...

Meanwhile, the canopy and hatch have arrived for the monocoque...

Okay, I'll ask.  In the b/w photo of the engine being run -- what's the stream of smoke/water/whatever being emitted by the little tub at the front of the photo and into the tunnel?  I doubt that it's a smoke trail to look for bumps in the aero, and if it's cooling water -- why not all around the engine?

Otherwise -- geez, what a project.  Thanks for the photos and updates.  We're all watching - with interest and fascination.
