Reidy, did you have much trouble finding the sweet spot for the rack? Im not sur ethat other have even tried. According to the guru there is nil bump steer when in the right pozzie.

While I respect his claim, Ive never seen a car with unequal length front arms that had zero bump steer, minimal, yes, zero, no.

Looking good btw..well done, (not bad for a cripple... give an aussie an arc welder n let him loose... look at THAT bridge....)

Thanks Artie, Mate I haven't found a sweet spot I just wanted to get it there and have a look, but I think it's as you said minimal to very little but not no bump steer. But hey I can only try it! I wanted to keep it close to the way it was designed, and hey if it don't work I'll change it! ;)

Well Reidy02 you know that Artie cares don't you know Cause he has said in the past that him gets and Erection when him look at stuff like that.   ;D ;D ;D

By the way nice build.  I like all the sheet metal work. 

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

Ditto on that!  Very nice on the sheetmetal.  Looks like it is getting close.  Do you plan to paint the aluminum?  I have wondered what it would look like painted with the frame showing, either the same color or contrasting.

Well what can I say, thanks guys! Yeah Eng I'm thinking of having the frame powder coated like a lite gun metal grey and the suspension arms a darker grey or charcoal, to go with the motor, and I was thinking about doing the scottch bright circles on the Alloy panels. ;D ;D :o And Artie if ya got wood use it!! :o :o Thanks Doug, those seats are nice but bloody expensive!! Thanks Voodoochicken I too am interested in progress builds it's good to see progress and to see how people go about things, as Artie would say buggy porn. ;D
