Default Exterior Projections

So I've got my side panels and nosecone on and put the front suspension back together at the weekend. I'm a bit worried though about my some of my front suspension parts failing on the radius checks as mine looks a bit like the pictures here http://www.haynes.co.uk/forums/showp...13&postcount=1 in that my upper wishbone brackets stick out a bit so won't these fail the radius tests?

The area around the wishbones is exempt under the revision that i studied, although this may have been revised again.

Oh right, why is it considered except? And is this how cars with just a large square section cut out for the wishbones & steering to pass through instead of circle holes for each bone etc get through?

Not sure on the finite details without looking at the manual. It used to be the case that the steering rack ends would require covering along with the hex heads on the bolts and shock ends but this is no longer the case.

Ya I'm aware of the need for covers on the bolts, it was more the wishbone & shock brackets I'm worried about.

the way i understand it is the iva man uses a gauge what looks like a ball cut in half of a set radius/size and only where it touches bits and bobs on the car are the parts that need a radius on if that makes sence.
but to be safe you need to read the latest version of the iva manual

In true locost fashion use one of these as a gauge. Anywhere you can touch with that ball on the exterior has to have the rad. Simples.

Heh that's a good way to check Bob I'll have to get something like that to check everywhere and hopefully my front upper wishbone & shock mounts won't be touchable because of the bones being in the way. If not I guess my best bet is to just take a dremel/file to the brackets to try and get the 2.5mm radius?
