great work it feels really good when you can sit her on wheels doesn't it ? for now I used a length of wood with a hole top and bottom instead of shocks at least you can then wheel it back and fore

Yea feels like a major milestone.
Ive used 25mm box in place of the shocks at the moment.

Did people find the rear upper wishbones too short on the saturn plans.

haha yes I had to redo them as I had massive negative camber on the back, if I remember right I shortened the lowers and have spacers to bring the wheels out

I think i have enough meat on the upper wishbone to drill another further out so will give that a try first
