Default Rear Upright Jigs.

Hi Guys,

I've been thinking of ways to do this easily and have come up with these

Disc Uprights LHD & RHD



Drum Uprights



They work out at 10 each, but we are thinking of maybe hiring them out, I'm working on a set of wishbone jigs for hiring out as well, depending on interest.

Any thoughts kindly appreciated

Kind regards

John

Look good John, you could probably send them out with the kit parts if requested with a deposit untill their return.

Having accurate jigs available will help many builders progress quicker.

Top!!

Great idea, and it looks as if you have amended the original disc jig to suit the caliper mountings. you offer all three setups now?

I would also be interested in jig rental.

Especially the front upper wishbone (with angled camber adjuster) and a jig for fitting the suspension brakets to the chasis.

Hi Nick,

No we've adopted your position for the disc uprights now, and drums will remain as per book.

Kind regards

John

Great stuff, it was hard work adapting your original uprights and I have a machine shop at my disposal!

Are you at the Exeter show this year? I appreciate its a lot of work and expense, but if you need a hand it will be great to keep the Haynes thing going.

Keep up the good work,

For anyone new to the forum, 3GE parts are top quality.
