    I had great intentions of getting so much done today but alas only a very small portion got done
    Anyway some progress is better than none I guess First job was to make up some axle brackets to mount the spring, I copied the dimensions off a Speedway bracket but changed the shape to suit what I wanted.
    I made a plywood template (which I keep) and the trusty plasma was sparked up and 2 shapes were cut out of 3/8" plate steel, the plasma leaves a slight ragged edge on 3/8" but that was soon cleaned up with a flap disc in an angle grinder, a piece of tube to take the shackle bushes was welded on and a few lightening holes were put in for aesthetics and thats as far as i got







    A quick squirt of rust-oleum to stop them flash rusting

    Very next nice fab work! You would never know those weren't production pieces if you didn't know it.

    Steve,

    Great start on the build. From the looks of your metal of choice for this build your last build must have put a serious dent in the UK Stainless supply.

    Last few evenings have been checking dimensions of the 16 frame and making up a rear spring crossmember. Hopefully get it tacked into the frame saturday morning.
    For those that are interested the Crossmember is 3" x 1.5" x 1/8" box section, the spring clamp plates are 1/4" BMS, they were cut out with a plasma and sanded to shape.
