Interesting project,keep it coming, enjoying This!
sometimes we have to sell stuff to finance what we're building, good to see you continuing to make progress in spite of your wrist and your work situation.Race car sold ,less than I wanted but MSD had packed up . Still got her running , 4 year old fuel still worked !!! and new owner drove it onto trailer . So that will be a shrinker/stretcher and folder on order and some airbags and tank.
You are brave to do all that stuff!So after 3 days off (stuff to sort/do) I made a start on front suspension working out where strut will go, need some 2ins id tube to make strut bottom bracket. Top mounts came this afternoon, they have a spherical top bearing so there should be no stress as angle changes. Will make the top mounting adjustable, using the camber/castor settings from Omega -1. 7 deg neg camber and if I remember right 5 deg castor. Need to buy a digital angle finder now.
Need to work out strut towers now, have some 1ins box 3 or 4mm wall so think that will do for (3 leg?) frame that will be filled in with 3 mm sheet . Recon I can get a strut brace across front of engine as well, will double up as cooling fan mounting.
Thing I dont like is the airbag top plate just sits around the damper shaft and is not secured to it, bolt that screws into top of shaft needs a large washer under or plate will eventually work over the bolt head . Nothing I can't work out, one thing I am not sure on is rack height to stop bump steer. Know how it works with wishbones but not 100% on strut.
