Greenpower car build weeks 4 and 5

We have been busy finishing building the main part of the car chassis. The chassis is the main structure or frame of the car that gives the vehicle its strength.

The most difficult part of this is making sure we use all the correct nuts, bolts and washers in the right places. We are having to learn how to use all the different tools such as spanners and socket sets.

Some of us have been thinking about what the car should look like, such as the colour and materials for the car bodywork. Here are a few ideas we have come up with.

Aayush made this model for a car design in Google Sketchup

Darlena created this car design using Paint3D

This week we started to assemble and install the steering system for our car.  We are all very proud of what we have achieved so far and have learned loads of new things.
