My 1st Build Thread - all carbon original B2

Post by R Cane »

I decided to do a all-original, all-carbon B2 as my first build thread on here. Only have one more carbon part to pick up, and a couple other misc parts, and I'm golden - I don't like to start a project until I have all the pieces I need. So, just a teaser for now...

Nice! I started out restoring my B2 and then it morphed in to an all carbon build too! Looking forward to more updates.

The couple of "other misc. parts" is the one that usually takes time :mrgreen:

Keep us posted with more pics!

Cool, just the top plate. That is going to be a nightmare to find though! Good luck! 8)

cool ! I'll be following that for sure.

NB. I've never seen a build thread of a "OIN" type b2/3 (apart from the grafite shapeway's version of course...), or am I missing something?
Am I the only one using hex up front, b4.2 hubs rear etc?

Ouch.... that was the hardest part for me to find as well... I lucked out and had the only bid on one about 2 weeks ago on eBay... ended up being $13 total with shipping. I feel like I stole it!

Sorry but that one has the holes for the sway bar. It is for a B3. :(

This is also the wrong top plate. Original B2 must have no holes for a sway bar.

A little spackle and a dab of black paint, it'll be just fine.
