Welcome to myChimaera.com
Intend for the car was to build it around as many standard crucial parts as
possible. Mainly the glass, suspension and minimal or very little custom work to
drive line parts. Per design, chassis supposed to be sitting at 4" ground
clearance and 40" tall with 107" wheel base and 161" overall length (with folded
rear wing) and with 76" in front and 80" in the back at outermost wheel arches.
It will be bit longer with front chin splitter and rear wing deployed. Height
will vary as well from normal driving, lowering during highway speeds and rising
during low speed bump crossings.
Being very relatively short car where all mechanicals have to be packed very tightly, the body was designed to be removable to gain access to all hidden components where fenders and quarter panels be easily removable. In all there are 19 main exterior panels (plus 2 interior door frames not made yet) and number of trim pieces:
Original body "buck" was made on foam covered with plaster, from which molds where made and carved out to make more with mating flanges as the the process moved on
