Ok so this mite sound stupid but........when do you know when to stop.... I mean are you planing on going so far as to make a mini "you" that has a little heart that pumps tiny plasma to put in this car so you (or he) can sit in this thing and look cool or do you stop at the point when you sit back and say well that good enough for government work lol. I am in awe with your work and when I grow up I want to have atleast half of ur skills. Cool work man

small update, I started on the four links, I figured I would get rear end mounted where it belongs so I can start making rear coil overs and get the ride height where I want it, so far I have been mocking every thing up at ride height, hope it all works out! the straight pins you see are going to be used in the final assy. I milled a bolt head on each one, the four bars are aluminum tubing which was drilled and tapped to accept 00-90 brass bolts with a functioning jamb nut that I soldered brass tubing on for the mounts, they are all adjustable like the real thing, still need a rear cross member behind the axle and make and install the pan-hard bar, all so need to attach the rear frame rails permanently. IMG_1430-vi.jpgIMG_1431-vi.jpg

 

 

then after I had all four made and installed (which was a pain getting it all in and together) I had to see if it was functioning properly

IMG_1434-vi.jpg  <<<<down all the way

IMG_1435-vi.jpg<<<<<< full travel all the way up, seems to work!

 

thanks for checking in on the progress!!
