Working on a convertible soft top for the Locost. Picked up a triumph TR3 soft top frame mechanism. The tr3 frame is narrower so we had to cut and extend it to fit around our locost’s roll bar. Still in early stages, but progress photos are below.
Switched the front fenders out for a set of lightweight fibreglass ones. The originals were steel fenders from princess auto. The new are from the UK and made for locost builds. My cousin in Saskatoon, gave them to us, as he had changed the design of his front fenders after buying these. Thanks Trevor!
In an effort to reduce the wind that develops in the cockpit while driving, wind wings were made to help divert air away. Wind in the cockpit is significantly worse on the passenger side, where the drivers side has the exhaust pipes which may affect airflow and reduce wind on that side. The wings may have reduced cockpit wind some, but wind is still strong on the passenger side.
