    Hi,

    Below are a few handy hints on kit car and general car prep and building techniques. I am not the guru and learn something new everyday so please feel free to chime in and add your own ideas, suggestions etc.I may not be a guru of car assembly but I do have some pet hates so maybe we should kick of with those.1) Don’t put parts covered in grease, oil, filth, old chain lube etc on the car – ever! This is one I just don’t get as you could be easily fitting parts that have faults and you will never know as these issues are covered up in crap. Not to mention I hate touching a fresh build and getting filthy and then potentially transferring dirty mit prints to the rest of the car. Kero, $1.99 cans of degreaser, soap and water, whatever you choice (even my old mans preferred degreaser and hand cleaner – Super petrol, “not standard, its not as good…”, although it’s a fairly explosive choice and of course 98 would be the new world replacement for Super) there is no excuse. If you don’t have a fancy parts washer, just obtain a largish plastic tray, sit the parts in it and hit it with the spray can degreaser and stiff brush. Hose off and preferably blow off with compressed air.2) Dodgy wiring. If you have never seen how easily an electrical fire starts I highly recommend putting a thin piece of wire across the terminals of a car battery. Its very impressive. Instant burning insulation and if anything flammable is around you will have a major problem on your hands. As the vast majority of circuits will be fused perhaps the biggest issues will be the wiring between the fuse block and battery and most importantly the battery cable between starter solenoid and battery.Suggestions for wiring techniques coming soon.
