Closer Still

Made some strut tops, cut out some templates to start closing off the rear firewall and bent some tube to help brace the rear structure and create a more stable area for the rear struts.




Chassis Dolly 50%

I figured that cutting out a bunch of material on the car would weaken the chassis enough that the subframes could shift. This would be bad so I decided to make a dolly that would locate the subframes in all axis and still keep the car mobile. Wait ’til you see the casters!


Bunch O’ Wheels (and other stuff)

There really is nothing like going to a drift event, helping to pull it off and watching all your friends have fun while your car is sitting on jack stands haha!!  Anyway, I went directly to the shop after the event around midnight and resumed work on the green two tone car.  Continuing on Sunday, I installed the new SPL toe arms.  These are some really quality pieces and you can see in one of the photos that when installing, it’s always a good idea to have one disassembled so you can approximate your thread engagement better.  The alignment on the green car was really close so I haven’t adjusted them to their exact position as of yet.  I also started to transfer the fuel tanks as the practice car, which from hence forth will be known as the “Fleur De Lis” had a lot of rust inside it’s tank.  Other than that, a few wheels have shown up things are progressing normally.  I’m in the process of picking the paint colors for the shop and the bench is almost finished.  I can’t wait to get a stereo in there, music from the Driod doesn’t quite get it done.

Peace
