How to build your own 200mph Supercar; at home in your spare time. Part 1

465 359 Näkymät

Every petrolhead dreams of building their own car. In this video you can catch a summary of 1500 hours of work building the Arete GT 200mph supercar. This 1500 hours, brings the car from; little more than a dream, to the stage of assembly where components are starting to look like a rolling platform. The video, is a compilation of moments from 40 individual videos, outlining the work in detail. From the original scale model, to the full size plug, producing molds for body parts, laminating composite body parts, fabricating custom suspension components, a twin turbo 1Jz GTE rebuild, a scratch built exhaust and muffler system and all the other little parts necessary to create a car from the ground up. This is not a kit, component car, or restoration, but the brain child of Jay Jarvie; prototype engineer and fabricator. Watch how one man can be concept artist, designer, engineer, fabricator, body shop, tuner and all around problem solver. If you've ever wanted to “Build your own!” then this video will show you one man's method and hopefully inspire you to take the plunge in becoming a BuilderCreator as well.

  • Brilliant, you have mastered so many skills, but I'm worried by your lack of PPE ( gloves and mask ) when doing fibreglass work because others may try to copy your work.

    Roddy AllanRoddy Allan4 päivää sitten
    • Contrary to what people see on the videos I do wear masks and gloves more often than is seen. However, that is a mother and father's job to teach you how to stay alive as long as possible, before you start building exotic cars. If they follow me for every function of life they may only make it to 60. cough! cough!

  • This is so inspirational - it makes me want to get my own design for a scratchbuilt exotic car built. Though instead of burlap and plaster, I'll use my 3D printer to make the body and chassis mold masters. In about 2,000 individual puzzle pieces all glued together.

  • I helped my boss at our body shop make a tube frame fiberglass body buggy, tricked out motor and suspension with this big flake glitter paint job that required about two dozen clear coat applications + cut and buff to showroom finish. Can't even count the hours we spent on it. First trip out of the shop they took it to get tires, rims and an alignment. Tire shop didn't realize it was rear engine, dropped it backwards off the rack and totaled it.

  • This is exactly what I have been tooling up for. I contacted Wheelers Builders to see what I needed and have been slowly purchasing welding equipment, (to start a mobile welding business), I found a 1900's lathe, a 70" sheet metal brake and I am looking for a milling machine among everything else I am going to need. You are so much further along. I am not trying to design my own car as of yet but now that I know it can be done I just might. You are truly a genius!! I am going to try and get you up to a million subs. You truly deserve it!!

    • Bring on the millions, I can take it. Ha! Get yourself a cheap little Chinese mill for drill and minor surfacing, but hold out for a larger CNC mill. A 3D printer is indispensable as well.

  • Instead of stainless steel and fibreglass, have you considered using rockwool?

    zavatonezavatone8 päivää sitten
    • I've had a few people say that they worry that fiberglass will break down, etc. One has to remember that cars like this put on very few hours (miles) over time. Perhaps "rockwool" ceramic fiber might have taken the heat better, the temperatures we are talking are not that significant. It is more a factor of vibration. If I get some failure or decide to re-tune with a new system, I'll give ceramic a second look.

  • must be cool to live in a country where you can drive diy cars and so on. In Germany, even if only the tire shows 0,19 inch out of the wheel arch your car doesnt have an operating permit

    • I have been talking to a few gentlemen from Sweden. They say that Sweden had oppressive laws against home built vehicles, but a popular movement convinced their government to allow them back. They have a system of inspection (documentation) of the build to assure safety and such. Similar to building a home made airplane her in the US. Maybe your calling to start such a movement?

  • Hey Jay. Absolutely loved the video. Really admire your knowledge and skill. I'm actually wanting to become a prototype engineer myself as I love working with my hands and have a curiosity for the science behind how things work. I would really appreciate some pointers as to the pathways you took that lead you to have enough expertise to build your own car and hold a career where you are designing/creating prototypes instead of sitting behind a desk all day.

    • @BuilderCreator Fantastic way to go about it. I love tinkering so I think your approach will be educational while also being interesting. I appreciate you taking the time to reply to my message. Have a good day :)

      Vasili AndrianopoulosVasili Andrianopoulos12 päivää sitten
    • I found School was to slow for my education ans so here was my answer- Pick a project (large or small) that requires you to learn new skills ad knowledge. When that's done pick another that is harder. Soon you will be far enough along that you can build something that you can sale and fund bigger and harder projects. For me learning AutoCAD worked this way. I could not sit through a tutorial, but if I had a specific project that I wanted to draw I just did it. Looking for answers to one problem lead to finding many more answers.

This kind of project is what i sometimes would day dream about. For every second of this video, i was in compete awe! I think unless you get involved with even a small project yourself its difficult to appreciate the magnitude of what is going on here. It would be beyond an honour to have 20 min with you to discuss and look at this project. Absolutely have the utmost respect for what you have achieved. Absolutely incredible. Lost for words.
