Welcome to ÅBM Racing

A bit shaky round at Santa Pod Raceway, Doorslammers May 2019!

This was the second 1/4 mile pass with the Chevelle after 9 years of only racing in the 1/8 mile!

It’s pretty amazing how everything can move around like it does especially when you know how stiff the body on the car is, it’s a lot of energy in the rear tire on a car like this!

More stuff is done on the trailer, and some stuff are moving backwards!.. 😉

The sealing and frame around the side trailer door is finally fixed after 5 years!… 🙂

A couple of weeks ago Me, Max and Sofi did start on the waste water tank plumbing, to finally get the rest of the bathroom ready for next years racing! (hopefully)

We also took the brakes apart again to try find the reason that we always get uneven brake power on the front axle on the trailer and try to solve the problem for real now this time!…

And then the electric motor to the air compressor that we finally installed in the right place broke down…. 🙁

And then of course some goofing around! Remember to always try have some fun when doing boring stuff… Like repair air compressors…

The weekend after me an Sofi continued with the waste water tank plumbing, and we found the perfect windy weather for it that also included rain!…

But it turned out really nice anyway with some extra work around to make the welding possible to do!…

And then the week after that Peter from Rörmekano came by and helped me to start on the waste water tank ventilation tubing, much appreciated!

Then I went by Bengtssons Smide and picked up some stainless steel stuff that they helped me fabricate with a really short notice! Nothing of this would be possible without the help from our partners! Thanks and thanks again!

So I could put on some insulation on the the waste water tubing and then put the protection housing in place that they fabricated for me.

Then I changed the electric motor, made a oil change, cleaned up and installed the air compressor again in the trailer so it will be ready to go to a race track, I hope it will work for a while now without problems!…

Then that good feeling you get when you have finished something you started about 5 years ago! 🙂 Been on my way for a really long time now to seal up around the trailer side door and then mount some kind of stainless frame around it to make the door installation complete and have it off the “to do list” 😉 And it for sure turned out really good, finally it looks done and I am super thankful that Bengtssons Smide could help me with a short notice and fabricate the parts I needed!

 

Trying to find that sweet spot! =)

 

Some Saturday fun outside the shop 5/9-2020! Coffee, cookies, methanol and some Conventional Headed Chevrolet Big Block music!? =) A fun little Muscle Car Event together with Sneeky Pete from Gasoline Magazine and 30 of his Muskelbilar i Sverige friends outside the Åkes Bil & Motor entrance! =) I assume that you know by now that ÅBM Racing is Åkes Bil & Motor Racing and our main partner for Sjödin Motorsport!?

 

Sponsor event! Sjödin Motorsport / ÅBM Racing Chevelle Warm Up and BBQ at our long time partner Bengtssons Smide in Täby 4/9-20! Thanks for supporting us the way you do!

 

More small stuff done on the trailer!

Been thinking about doing this for a couple of years now! And finally me and Sofi spent some hours about a week ago and got some sheets of aluminum in place that I got from our partner Bengtssons Smide mounted in the roof on the lower and upper floor, more and more stuff are getting done and we are not far away from saying that the whole upper floor is all done!

And I have also got an rain deflector mounted above the rear door because the water from the roof hits just above the door and I get water in to the trailer!

And It’s all about the details! 😉 And of course hiding the ugly stuff!! 🙂

Before.

And after, way much better!! No ugly pipes!

A huge thanks to Bengtssons Smide for helping me out whenever I need some parts to the trailer! More and more stuff are getting finished on the trailer, I actually start to believe it will be pretty much done to next season! 🙂 And all because of our awesome partners that helps us out in some way, I really appreciate it!

Last weekend me and Max did install our Cinderella Comfort incineration toilet in the trailer!

Finally, we got a toilet in the trailer and there is no need to handle the number 1 and 2 stuff!… All that will just end up as some clean ash and that is something that I don’t have a problem to deal with! 🙂

First take the biggest guy in the team and put him on the toilet so see if he sits comfortable! 🙂

Read the instructions, once, twice and maybe a third time! Better safe than sorry when you are going to make two BIG holes I the wall!

Ready, steady, go! Scary moment but it turned out really good!

When we where making holes in the walls I took the opportunity to install a PAX fan to get the moisture out from the bathroom when we are using the shower!

Some metal tubing to put in the walls to make sure we don’t get any more moisture in them!…

Of course we did chose the best day possible with a lot of rain to make big holes in the trailer wall and be outside and install the necessary stuff around it…! 😉

But after all we got it done but we were freezing our asses of!!!..

Sunday the weather was way much better and we could continue to install the last stuff on the outside, exhaust pipe and the fresh air inlet!

And yes we will remove the upper part of the exhaust pipe and mount a cap over the tubing when we are out on the road!

It was a pretty simple installation procedure and I think it will be Event simpler to do it in a house, just like always with the trailer we have the problem the this “house” need to be able to go down the highway in a rain storm without getting any rain water into it!…

That causes a lot of thinking about how to solve problems with ventilation valves the are simple to open and close and all the stuff around that!

Plastic tubing installed in the wall and sealed really good, we are ready to install the toilet!!

Final installed! 🙂

I think it all turned out really good, and also it looks good in the bathroom!

Ready to use!

Burning poop! 😉

Want to get a really good product that is simple to install and use? Well this is what you want for sure!
