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.
