Ash

I've been to your old house - where were you keeping it all??!! Did you have 3 underground levels that I didn't see??

Cheers

Adrian

Talking R&R

Been having a couple of days R&R.

The last few hectic weeks are beginning to tell

I have managed to re-make the front lower wishbones ( Again )

Test fitted them together with one of the shocks to check the correct alignment.

Made a good start on the rear uprights



With a little luck, i'll get a few hours in tomorrow !!

Nice one Ronnie looking great, you,ll soon have it on wheels & sitting in the drivers seat making strange noises

are those steering rack extensions as per book? they look longer than the ones i got from Rally Design.

rear uprights will soon be in place eh

well done

andy

Talking No wheels on my waggon

That is the plan Andy. On its wheels by the end of the month

Yes the rack extensions are to the book spec.
The rack you see fitted is an original Ford unit ( Mk 2 Escort ). To be honest, absolutely nothing wrong with it that a good clean up & re-paint wouldn't cure.

I will know if any alterations are required when I get the front hubs fitted

Here's a better picture of my partly completed rear uprights.
