The Biltmore Greenhouse with FIBERGLASS Covering is a 14' wide free-standing greenhouse kit has room to grow and then some! The framework of each Turner Greenhouse kit is made of rugged, and rust resistant Galvalume metal. Good ventilation is important to your greenhouse in order to control humidity, reduce the threat of disease and to eliminate stale, used air while providing fresh air. These Dayton shutter-mounted exhaust fans have sturdy rust-resistant steel housings, aluminum vanes, three wing aluminum fan blades and full safety guards. I’ve received a number of requests about how to get started building a Cafe Racer, and so I’ve dedicated a page to what I’ve experienced so far.
I’ve also received a lot of input from other Cafe enthusiasts on the Utah Cafe Racer Facebook page, and I’m now including this here as well. If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to comment below, or let me know via the Contact Form, .
The first most important step I believe for those of you who have significant others and care about how they feel is get their buy in. Because you are going to be spending a lot of time on this no matter how simple the modifications are.
Because once you have it finished you’re gonna want to ride it, and it’s gonna take time away from them.
An excellent article published on Bike EXIF called How To Build A Cafe Racer some general guidelines on how to get that Cafe look and feel.
The indents closer to the rider were made to help a one bring their legs closer together creating less wind drag. You should also check the petcocks for proper function and if necessary give ‘em a good cleaning as well.
Carburetors are what control the flow of gasoline and air into the combustion chamber of your engine. If you’re rebuilding a vintage bike, say 25+ years old, the wiring harness may need some attention. For a simple build, meaning changing out only a couple things and some maintenance, you only need a few. If you’re going a bit further and really want that lean Cafe look you’re gonna need to invest in some power tools. A Reciprocating Saw was my first power tool purchase, and for what I’m wanting to accomplish with my build it wasn’t completely necessary. When I first started my build I thought that a MIG welder was going to be able to do it all, and for the most part it has.
The main downside is that you need twice the machine height as vertical print area due to the way all the push-rods are required to be moved vertically to position the nozzle in X and Y directions. The rod ends are designed to have either carbon fiber  fiberglass, aluminium tube or wooden rods inserted into them. The main Carriage and universal joints are assembled like this, using M3 bolts, washers and captive nuts (hidden on the inside of each joint arm).
You need three vertical rod carriages, these carry 2 x 8mm (LM8UU) Linear bearings or bushings. You will also need some 12mm Plywood or similar material for the base, and you can use the same for the top, I used 6mm Clear Polycarbonate sheet as I will be adding further rigidity with some aluminium T-slot. One of my small modifications was to add feet to this printer, it serves to raise the platform so both the electronics and power supply can be fitted neatly under the ply platform.
These Rostock feet can be found here, 3 different versions and my Sketchup file if you need it. Nema 17 motors can be attached and if you want the optional bearing support can also be added. I fitted the bearing support as I had originally intended to make the printer run with Spectra line, I dropped this early on as I wanted to get the system up and running, but after using Spectra line with the Tantillus printer, I will take another look at implementing it on Rostock. In the original Rostock design, more 12mm Ply wood panels were used for the upright supports, I replaced them with lightweight 20mm x 40mm Extruded aluminium uprights (800mm tall). Using aluminium sections makes it easy to attach extruders, filament spools and other things to the machine and gives it a clean look compared to more sheets of ply wood. I’m sticking to my slightly unconventional 5 point mounting system for the Heated bed, this always works so well for me. Wiring and thermistor – then mount it to the Ply wood platform with spacer washers, as required.
Three hall effect sensors are fitted to the tops of each axis, these are ideal for a machine like Rostock as the home position is all the way at the top. All the electronics and power supply are mounted on a cut up plastic chopping board for ease of assembly.
I have still not yet found (or designed) anything better than the Geared Greg’s extruder with Herringbone gears. It can be mounted on the T-slot at an angle suitable for the bowden tube and the very tall Z travel. I originally tried a J-head clone, but had a rather poor experience with that, the supplier has since made further modifications and I have a modified one to try out, I’m planning a hot-end comparison mega-test at some point soon. My original modifications added more stability to the mount and also added M4 bolts for the Groove mount found on most J-heads.
The revised design worked, but I didn’t like the bowden clamp method, so I removed it and replaced with a screw in Pneumatic fitting ,the same as the Extruder. The heat shield shown was a nice idea but I didn’t end up using it as it restricted air flow to the PEEK block and I found that the extra vertical M3 bolts were not required.
You can get the J-head extruder mount files here – Sketchup file also included if you want to change anything.
I also added a standard 4 line LCD and SD slot to the RAMPS electronics, you can see below. As you can see from the above Rostock is tall, but uses a smaller amount of desk space than a typical RepRap 3D printer. Sitting on the Rostock print bed above is a Tantillus 3D printer for size comparison, it can print some really big things! It mounts on the short section of 20mm T-slot at the front of the machine and sits at a 45 degree angle – nice and easy to use and see. The firmware used on Rostock is a modified version of Marlin, Johann removed the Cartesian engine and replaced it with the Delta coordinate system, so for anyone familiar with Marlin it’s simple to get up and running.
One really great thing about this printer is the fact the carriage moves out of the way before a print and you have a Z offset defined in the firmware. When I want to print with Nylon, I just clip a 2mm plate of Tufnol onto the Glass bed and adjust the Z offset to 393mm.
My first print was the Bud vase by MakeAlot, this was super sized to cover a good proportion of the print surface and allowing a good check the vertical build area.


I used 10% infill with the Bud vase, and concentric infill allows you to quickly see if you have any Z axis alignment issues. I was rather stunned how well Rostock does vertical alignment, it’s easily the best printer for speed, accuracy and layer alignment that I have built to-date. Another very small print and 0.25mm layers, shows how good the layer alignment is with Rostock. Before Rostock I was limited to about 145mm height on the big MendelMAX, now I have almost 400mm of Z build height. First up was the Lava vase, this is a very detailed model, with many folds and only small overhangs, it’s easy* to 3D print and looks great. You can print it hollow, but the base section needs at least 5% support the the internal floor.
First cut the tail and of the existing filament being used in your machine (yellow above) and slide on the short tube section, then have your new filament end ready (pearl white) and melt the end of the first filament (yellow) slide up the tube so half of the now melted yellow end is in the tube, and slide in your second filament.
Heat the outside of the tube again, just a little and push both filaments together, then pull slightly apart and roll the tube in your fingers. You will end up with a nice strong join that should have no problems going through your extruder, even in a bowden configuration. The small tube should not cause a problem, it will usually just be at the front of your extruder, just remember to remove the tube section the next time you change filament or change colour. Another top tip is to always use a small sponge clamped around your filament before it goes into your extruder. Many thanks to Johann C Rocholl for designing the most innovative and inspiring RepRap 3D Art printer of 2012. I have already started designing my own version of a 3D Delta printer, as I was so impressed with this one. First off I know I know, this looks like a ton of reading, and a ton of work, but it really is not, it just seems that way because I am outlining every thing I have learned over the years of many car audio installations.
Note that each step within this write up also has the video thumbnail, with a link to the video below it. Before you even cut your first piece of wood you are going to want to carefully consider your layout. Before continuing to your skeleton here is an excellent list of questions to ask yourself about your design to minimize issues throughout the build.
If the answers to the above questions are yes, lets continue onto making your wooden skeleton. So its time to get to work building your skeleton which will be the foundation for your amp rack. Once your mounting structure is complete you will want to start determining what shapes you would like to use for templates that will cover the amplifiers or be around them.
When it comes to making the Beauty Panel skeleton you are going to want to utilize techniques like router tricks to make pieces that fit within one another perfectly. Once you have all your skeleton pieces built for both supporting the equipment and hiding the equipment you are going to want to prepare the skeleton for fiberglass, the professional way.
Following the steps in the video will allow you to cut a perfect step in your skeleton pieces. Within the video you will see how I stretch the material properly in a manner that avoids sags and wrinkles, and also how to easily adhere the fabric and trim it perfectly. Upon completing the stretching of your fabric you are ready to move onto adding some fiberglass strength! Now that you have a super clean and functional fabric surface prepared it?s time to add some strength! In this step you are going to learn to apply fiberglass resin to the fiberglass, you are also going to learn how to apply fiberglass chop mat. Milkshake: If you have a relatively horizontal surface you can use what is called a ?milk shake? to get things nice and smooth.
Green Stage Sanding: When sanding body filler you want to be sure you are sanding in the ?green stage?.
Note that in the video I am prepping for a vinyl surface, not paint, so I only sand up to 150 grit. Now that you have smoothed out your main surface it is time for a step that can really make your install look amazing, and help tie everything together. In this step I show you how through using router skills you can make an exact plexi glass shape and integrate it behind an insert. It is very important that you take your time in this step, do not attempt to secure materials before your adhesive is tacky. Once all your panels are wrapped you’re obviously ready to piece things back together. If you enjoyed this tutorial please comment below, if you utilize any of the methods in this tutorial please feel free to share pictures within this thread of what you made!
This is a theoretical question for what I eventually plan on building MANY years down the road as a long project build. Personally I'd prefer a VW notchback body on an aircooled Porsche 911, or just a Porsche engine in a VW notchback body. A 1973 VW Super Beetle with a 283 Small block Chevy and bolt-ons mated to a TH350 on a slightly modified Chevy S-10 frame. With ten standard sizes ranging from 14' long to 50' long, this Turner greenhouse is being used by hobbyists, educators and commercial growers alike. This coating process is more than twice as resistant to corrosion as conventional galvanizing, making it exceptionally strong, long-lasting and maintenance free. For greenhouse owners in areas that receive snow or live in a windy area, tend to have strong thunderstorms, we recommend this kit which adds twice the additional strength to the Biltmore Series.
Although you can build a cafe out of anything,  the older you go, the harder it will be to find parts.
Typically the seat will either be completely flat, or have a hump behind the rider where a passenger would sit.
The main difference with a Delta based system is that motion on the vertical Z axis is achieved by driving all three positional motors together, this is due to the fact they are in a triangular configuration. I have also started using Hair-spray with PLA on glass, it works well and is not quite as powerful as watered down PVA glue, so part release is much easier. When I started learning this I would have done ANYTHING for a write up with the tricks and techniques I am going to show you, but it didn?t exist, so again while it might seem like a lot to read it WILL be WELL worth your time to read through this and watch the videos.
By understanding each step involved you are well on your way to an amazing fiberglass amp rack! To effectively do this take a picture of the bare trunk and sketch where each piece of equipment will be, and then what you want the finished product to look like. I cover how templates are made in a totally separate how to series, as they are pretty involved steps, but once you learn them you are on your way to taking your install to the next level.


You will also want to use techniques that allow you to mesh similar pieces of wood into one another to create separate pieces of the amp rack so that the amp rack is an assembly, rather than one permanently conjoined part. This step will lead to a flush fiberglass surface that is easier to sand and fill with body filler.
In this step you are going to stretch material and adhere it to the bounding surfaces of your amp rack.
After all we want our fiberglass amp rack to last for years in the harsh automotive environment, so let?s get to work making it ready for the abuse!
Though there are different techniques that can be used in this stage, this is the method I use and have never had any issues. So that means it is now time to smooth things out and prepare for the finish that you plan to apply to the fiberglass amp rack. If you were doing paint you would want to sand smoother for the primer application? but that is a different How To.
I also show you how you can use foam tape and body filler to make a perfect gap for the materials you will ultimately finish the amp rack trim piece and insert with.
If you try adhering the materials to early will pay for it later when the material pulls away from the panel. Makes me feel more comfortable about tackling this further down the road in a Tahoe build if I can't fit my amps under the seats. Petcocks are the valves that control the flow of gasoline out of your tank and into your carburetor(s). Even Johann has a new design (Kossel Wiki here) based on the openbeam Aluminium construction.
Hall effect sensors use small magnets fitted on the carriage to be triggered, you can tune them with a on-board trim pot, so micro-fine accuracy for the first layer can be obtained, and they repeat position detection perfectly. Allow me to insert my shameless plug and say that if you enjoy any part of this tutorial, or learned something new, please post a comment, rank this thread, and share with your friends!
Note that some of the videos or somewhat of an ?update? to my progress within the step, where as others are much more of an actual step by step instruction. This will require basic building techniques so I did not outline much of it within the videos. Having an amp rack that is multiple pieces that are joined together by bolts and screws is much more effective than an amp rack that is glued or otherwise permanently joined. Note that if you do in fact have access to the ?rear? of the panel it is advantageous to apply the fiberglass mat to the rear.
This steps video will teach you how to properly smooth the surface using a high quality body filler. Big tips here are to use a high quality body filler (as you will likely be doing small detail sanding) and to make sure you use foam tape with enough thickness for the materials you use to finish the pieces. In the first video you will learn how I wrap ?basic? panels, which basically does not require the use of a heat gun, but requires you to rabbet the edges of the panel for a clean finish on the rear side.
It is also important when wrapping a complex panel to utilize high quality glue, as I will recommend within the video.
The vehicle can be a very dangerous place in the event of an accident, so insure everything is held firmly in place. Now there are plenty of interesting kit cars out there for beetles, but wouldn't it make more sense to modify a newer car chassis+motor to accept a fiberglass beetle body?
For more info on frame geometry check out Wikipedia’s Bicycle and Motorcycle Geometry . The videos have a run time of a little over an hour, so grab a frosty beverage and some food and sit back! The mounting structure is what your amps and equipment will mount too and the beauty panel is the structure that will hide all the wiring and effectively show off your amps.
Some tips are to utilize good mounting techniques for securing the base of the mounting structure.
This allows for a smoother surface to sand later on, but in my case I did not have this option. It will also show you techniques that can be used to help decrease the sanding time, a HUGE time saver! You then add the proper amount of hardener and MEKP that corresponds to the amount of body filler and resin used. In order to make the entire amp rack look appealing I want to carry that design to each piece. In the second video I will show you how to wrap more complex panels, which requires a more aggressive adhesive as well as the use of a heat gun when using vinyl to properly form the piece and avoid wrinkles.
Even though the internal roof support kit gives extra strength to the structure, do not leave a heavy snow load on your greenhouse for long periods of time.
The time and money you save shortcutting proper tools will be lost many times over removing and replacing stuff you buggered up. That being said there are a million different ways you could construct an amp rack, this tutorial will cover what I have learned and found to be very effective means of building a professional quality amp rack.
Note that your amp rack could be designed that both these functions are in one piece, but in my case they are separate. This is also a great phase to consider the materials you will use to finish the amp rack and their seamless integration into the vehicle.
Some of these techniques are to use nutserts (threaded rivets) for mounting to the sheet metal of the vehicle and t nuts for mounting equipment to wood. Upon mixing you will note that the body filler will lay down extremely well, and be very level, the downside is that you cannot really do this on vertical surfaces, and the body filler also becomes a little more difficult to sand. But if the body filler sands with a ?foam-like? consistency, almost as if you are grating cheese, then it is ready to be sanded. In order to carry it to my amp rack ?trim ring? I want to incorporate the rounded rectangle shape. Note that for the sake of length some sections of this lesson may refer to previous lesson posts I have made, in these cases I will provide a link for you to visit so that you may learn that technique as well! I do this in the form of an ?insert?, and what better to accent the insert than a piece of plexi glass that can be back lit, or have a logo applied. Another place to look if you’re really intent on a particular bike are forums dedicated to that particular platform.
