    scott's mk2 zephyr

    scott decided that very low wasn't low enough for his zephyr so we're making it stupid low. we've fitted an escort axle with adjustable diagonal 4 link bars. and mountad 2 1/4" springs on new perches behind the axle. the boot floor had to have a 'hump' for diff clearance and the prop flange pointed straight at the floor under the back seat so a new tunnel is to be made. the bracketry is above the scrub line before you ask. we're also fitting a 4 speed and o/d box to the mk3 zodiac motor in it so it'll cruise better on the motorway. that with the 3.54 ratio diff and 15" wheels it should scoot along nicely. we got this far in an afternoon and 1 evening after work including stripping the original axle and suspension.

    the shock is fully extended before the spring dislocates, just like a cortina used to be (although they had springs on the lower arm the principle's the same). when the fender skirts are in place you can only see the tyre on the rear, none of the wheel is visible. the front has to come down another inch and half ish so it will be a car to avoid speed bumps in (careful route planning ahead).

    it's cheap, available and has a better ratio (stock is 4.44:1!).

    we got the shifter brackets, propshaft and new rear tunnel made last night. also scott's mate terry came up and recovered the seats and made and covered new door cards for him. after all scott roadstered his minor a few weeks back so it was only fair.

    the axle's out for final welding and paint. the 4 link's painted. also the chassis is plated with 2mm plate inside, out and underneath as well as a 2" 'c' notch for more travel. we welded bump stop brackets inside the rails for a real feeling of luxury last job before the underside's shutzed is to weld in the upper shock pockets we've made, these let the top of the shock go up inside the car so they don't bottom with the new 'c' notches.
