Cheers, The plan is to use it, luckily the way the chassis tapers upward the only areas of the spring that will be close to the chassis are at the spring ends at ride height, the way ive it set is fully compressed so im not too worred about clashing/ twisting at that height. The rod is pretty long around 1.3m and ive 9" of bag travel so the moving arc wont be massive. probably set it fairly level at 3/4 travel compressed.Great stuff again. Wheel adaptors look the business and the extra ring of studs and nuts will look grand when painted the same as the original hubs.
Back end looks really snug in those pics. Is that the original pan hard attached to one of the leafs? You hoping to reuse it providing it doesn't 'arc' too much and cause a spring - chassis clash?
Cheers amg ill give them a call in the morning.Try North Belfast Spring Works for U Bolts, they'd carry biggest variety I'd say. Supply most of the HGV springs locally.
Funny Sven I think its all happening too slow for my liking, 2 days thinking head scratching throw 4 ideas out after trying them only to end up with a bracket that would take 4h to make in the end and wondering where my last 2 days wentNice wee video there, some change already
It has been mentioned once or twice. lolI'm sure everyone has you down as bat crazy, lol - which is true, in the very best way Keep it up!
I hadn't seen this til it was mentioned in my Laplander thread. What a job! Love it!
Real good use of a range of bits too, can't wait to see it leaving a big 1111 up the road.
Cheers @subie_andy33 Id love to have the time to do youtube properly but as you say it would take an age to get it all filmed and narrated.What a great read! Just went through the whole thread there, don't understand the half of it, but boy is it impressive!
This is the sort of thing people would have gone mad for on youtube, much like project binky! Though you'd probably not be even half as far had you tried to film it all... Seriously impressive work, looking forward to seeing how it turns out!
