This relationship is getting complicated

I cut away half of the rear chassis today, reconfigured it so all is flush with the new rails.

A flat bottomed car is now a real posibility but of course ran out of gas sgain

Till next week

Looking amazing John. Body will lift off the drive train cradle once it all done?

Jeff

Hi Jeff

Yes, that cradle will carry the motor, trans, front suspension,  steering rack and headers down to the merge section as a complete unit meaning it can be raised into the bay or the body lowered onto it

P.S.

I think I’ve found a new way to prep a car for paint, total rust, dirt and paint removal with no consumables, no heat distortion, no metal damage, no fall out clean up and it gets into every visible space

Im making enquirers at the moment

Some movement today

finished up the lower torsion rod mounting points incasing the cavities with pipe sections along with closing off the cradle rails at the rear. Removed the temporary cross brace and now I’m ready to trial mount the motor and box so as to configure the revised gear box mount hopefully next weekend

Cheers

john

Rear gearbox mount almost done, just need to fix the height position and fab some outriggers to the cradle

lots of room for the twin exhaust and will tuck inside the tunnel

snd of course start of the obligatory smoothing of some weld areas and metal finishing due to my OCD

Been a few weeks, unfortunately illness and waiting for John Lange to finish the custom rear control arms have slowed me down

So moved onto the rear fuel tank fabrication, using the LPG donut tank as the basis

First was chopping 65mm out of the height through the centre aa well as removing the center tube section

Then it was a matter of fabricating a centre rise section to clear the spare wheel well hump

With the modifications, I’ve worked out it should be between 58-60 litres plus another 8-10 in the additional surge tank

All in all so far a perfect fit

See you all next week

When necessity is the mother of invention

Core of the tank is now complete and now to move onto all the ancillary pipes and fittings
