    [QUOTE=ivanhoew;4614095]how did you cut the glass?




    With a glass cutter!!!

    I did pick up a very helpful bit of advice from 296Moon when I picked some box section (thank you on both counts).
    It's possible to take the edges of glass down using a flap disc gently, it worked well.





    Had a delivery of steel today, large box for chassis, small box to be used later on in the build.
    Made a start tweaking the chassis.

    It was a piece of flat laminated glass, looks like it was leftover from a house window.

    Today I got delivery of some links, thank you Glan, who says he was following this thread and decided to donate them to the cause.





    I'm wondering if I'll be able to use them.
    Diagonal links will surely need heim joints or otherwise they will bind?

    Hi Ian,that was quick! I was going to use them for a four bar arrangement on a locost 7, I was going to get another for a panhard rod. The bushes are pretty meaty and should handle a diag setup I would have thought.

    Thanks for those Glan, I reckon I will be able to use them.

    Heres the chassis




    S'funny, I thought the Ruby chassis came to almost a point at the front, but looking at it now, I think there is room between the rails at the front for the Zetec. Perhaps it was an optical illusion. Ahem.



    The main rails on the Ruby are top hat in section, I inserted some 80 x 40 x 3 box. It went in tight and almost didn't need welding! Ive just tacked it in for now. At the front, the original rails are only 30mm deep, going up to 50mm at the rear where the leaf springs mount, so the addition of the box section will really toughen it up.





    Started to make a bracket which mounts axle to leaf springs and lowers it 3"





    Heres roughly what I'm planning to do with the links. They are quite short but the whole car is tiny, and the bit of hardboard sticking up represents part of the floor where it raises up to the back seat, trying to keep most of this if poss.
