I've been building a Locost. I learned a lot from this forum. Thought I'd share mine. I guess I could just go front to back. Honda Del Sol three-core radiator. Mustang II uprights/brakes/rack. QA1 coilovers. Speedway headlights. Zetec motor. ZX9R carbs. Megajolt ignition. Rams head, with a ZZperformance resonator. Home-made plate adaptor to a T5 WC transmission. GM axle, 3:73 gears with their sorta locker and rear discs from a Jimmy. Camaro style rally wheels. 1950 Pontiac-style LED brakelights. Brake bias adjustor. Inside - Wilwood clutch and brake pedal assembly. Speedway GPS speedo. Speedway tach/gauges. Pro 5.0 short shifter. Johnny Law heater. Speedway collapsible column. Just registered, working on sorting (three mufflers before a winner, several string-line alignments, etc.). Interior, spare-tire holder, and many other things still need to be figured out.

Great. I'm glad to see your completed Locost.

Did you have a build log? If so, I missed it.

Cheers,

Thanks. No, no "build log" on the forum.
