The HolmesMade Roadster : an in-progress self built car

Faire: Wayne County
Maker: Aaron Holmes
Home: Ohio, United States
A couple years ago we decided our fabrication skills were growing and a stretch goal was to build our own car. After researching options and methods we purchased a Chevy S10 truck to use as a donor. The truck was fully dismantled, engine and drivetrain were harvested as well as many other parts. The engine was fully torn down and rebuilt, a first for us. Extra efforts were made to paint the engine block and accessories. To start work on the car chassis we constructed a sturdy build table with a flat surface upon which the frame geometry was marked out. We cut, fit, and tack welded square tubing together to make the car chassis. A four link trailing arm suspension was designed and fabricated along with a panhard bar to mount and control the rear axle. Custom front upper and lower control arms were also designed and fabricated to locate the S10 wheels spindles. Coilover shocks at all four corners suspend the car. Work continued on top the build table and we used our shop made gantry crane we brought to the MakerFaire last year to hoist the engine and transmission up and into the chassis. Engine mounts were fabricated and installed as well as a transmission tunnel. A steering rack was modified to support our front end geometry and fitted to the chassis with custom mounts. By the time of the Faire we plan to have a rolling chassis with seats installed and progress on a dash mockup. We look forward to sharing our project with Wayne County MakerFaire attendees!
