• Project Fig-Leaf

She’s Alive!

So far everything was working as hoped; the mounting system was complete, everything was performing well and nothing had caught fire. It was finally time to try installing everything into a real car. The problem was, with no more Mertyl we needed to find another Figaro chassis quickly to convert. Unfortunately, none of the major Figaro suppliers had any chassis so we were forced to make the difficult decision to convert our replacement Figaro instead. Pedro and his team quickly got to work on removing her original engine and before long we were ready to install the Fig-Leaf dive system


With everything installed, it was time to dig out my test batteries again for a quick test drive around the industrial estate.
