Default Re: V8 Irish Volksrod

Started work on the front mounting brackets for the Upper 'A' Arms and the Shock fixing point.

Firstly I did a drawing of my desired shape

Then plasma cut the shape out 4 times from 6mm plate steel, 2 for either side

Tack welded the first bracket in place...

Then the second...

Next, I tack welded the short 26mm steel rod which I drilled and taped earlier to hold the Upper 'A' Arm in place.

Bolted up the lower 'A' Arm with ball joint

Upper 'A' arm installed with the Granada Hub and Disc also in place

Coil-over Shock fixed in place

Finished front passenger side mocked up and looking good

Gotta repeat the procedure now for the other side.
