As mentioned previously I have been in contact with Jes for a few months about the inlet adapter plate he has designed to fit the 595 bodies to the klde head. He’s still ploughing on with the project, but unfortunately can’t commit to any completion dates at the moment.
So having had a massive burst of motivation sorting the interior panels I thought I would start having a go at doing a DIY inlet. This was also partly should the worst happen and projectJES doesn’t come to fruition I am not out on a limb with 0 form of induction.
I’ll pre empt this now, that this may not get finished …. if it does my intention is only to create a template I can pass to a laser cutter to cut the aluminium properly. On with the show:
1) Go to B&Q and blag some 1/2″ mdf offcuts for 50p.
3) Do some creative maths and add some dimensions to help with the placement of holes etc. Prior to this stage I tried drawing the holes using the ITBs as a template, but I just couldn’t get it accurate enough.
TO BE CONTINUED….
