Ya,ain't it cool?!?!?!?!!!! Man,I just love doing what many won't. I get such a HUGE sense of satisfaction from it. BTW,thanks guys for the kind words. 

Still have to section it,add hinge and mount it. I have added a bit of inner structure that glues into it for the hinge to mount to and make a more finished looking part. I'll let that have ample time to cure . Should mount it all to the console Sat and I can move on to other projects for a bit.

If you use a 3 point attachment to the hub carrier,one top and 2 bottom ,you can still run bushings inboard top and bottom and still have toe and camber adjustment. Lots of ways to do it. Pick your poison.

I guess I hadn't paid enough attention to enemy's a arms. I wasn't aware of his having a radius rod . Honestly,I'd widen the inner pivot points and ditch the radius rod. I have had zero issues with that. Plenty strong.

as long as those arms go into the carrier straight then yes that would work.

Well,the third time was not the charm but the 4th sure was. Used .185. Was hard to get to temperature on top side and I probably got the bottom side too hot. It's actually the core temperature that is important .I think the core was a bit too high but I did get a good part. Very rigid and should take a lot of abuse.  Everything is a learning curve and I'm sure as I do more I will get better. The cup holders were a huge gamble and I got away with it.When I get up from shop I will post a pic or 2 of the semi finished part.
