Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

Back to the car.
My suspension is going out for cadmium plating so those expensive Shafer aircraft bearings need to come out without damage.
I made these aluminium extractor cups in an exact fit with the cages to remove them safely.
There are plenty of similar garage kits on sale out there but none fit accurately to protect the seals.

I had a great couple of days down at Alistair's home and we fitted my fuel tanks and a lot of other stuff today.
The tanks are 3mm alloy plate with all the sparges and baffles in the original format. Internals are foamed and the grey tape is thick UHMW low friction polymer.
Had to take a smidgeon off the chassis entry corner to free the up the butt welds otherwise a great fit to the sponson stiffeners.
Cheers Alistair !!
