Exactly how I got the other side off. This one, it wouldn't turn even with a 4 ft break bar and I was hammering like buggery until the end of the bolt was mushrooming with no joy so I made the executive decision to get the angle grinder out.

Cheers
Stot

Uprights are ready to just bolt on now with all new brake seals, new rear bearings and new bushes.




Next I need to finish welding up the chassis and get the wishbone brackets tacked up.

Cheers
Stot

Look what just turned up from Phil @ Talon.



He even painted them for me.

Cheers

Made some more progress with the chassis. Trans tunnel is in and suspension brackets are on.




One of my D12s has gone missing. most everything else is fully welded.

I trial fitted one of the front suspension and uprights to see how it would fit too.



Look a bit weird from that angle but it will probably make sense once I do them flat.

Cheers
Stot

Some cracking progress there
Are the wishbones roughly based on the Saturn design? If so you may have a problem with the steering arm extension hitting the lower wishbone. You can get round it by limiting the amount of steering lock as it only just hits on full lock.
I know Phil made some lower wishbones with a slight bend in them to get over this as well I believe for the Voodou design I think.
Any thoughts on how you are going to mount your diff yet? It's been a topic of much debate in the past on which way to mount it.

Looking forward to more photos...

They are based on Saturn design, Phil made them for me, I'm a little concerned with how far it looks like I may have to have the drag links wound out to get to 1-2 degrees camber at the moment. Looks like there may only be 3/4"-1" of thread in the wishbone. Wont know properly till next weekend. I may shorten my rack as the book suggests which may limit the lock to lock enough that I dont need to put any stops on it. If not, Ill knock up some stops.

Hanging it from the arms but not sure on supporting the nose at the moment.

The next goal is to get it rolling so that I can wheel it to and from my detached garage so steering uprights and maybe handbrake next.

Made a start on my pedal box tonight.



I note on the MX5 setup the furthest left lower bolt hole is covered by the pedal so needs to be repositioned.

Cheers
Stot

Both skov and myself noticed on he mx5 the accelerator pedal moves a long way. It might be an idea before its installed to see if it can be modified in some way.
