I looked at doing the rear clip mod , yours and Jim C's all looked fantastic but for some reason I wanted to put the chassis back to how it left the factory in the end. I will just fold up an alloy panel get it powder coated satin black and fit that.
I need to fibreglass the missing bit out of the lower rear clip as well.
Wheels are next......I want 15 or 16 inch wine glass style wheels. I have the Vintage 17inch BRM knock on type wheels which will have to go.
Making progress on the unkown rear end.....Kind of wish I put it back to a standard Rf set up with reverse A arm now. The rodends are 5/8 that join to the uprights but they are sleeved down to 3/8 bolts. Yes 5/8 sleeved down to 3/8........
I am wondering if I should drill the uprights lower mounting bolt holes from 3/8 to 1/2 inch. These rodends are mounted in single shear so am a bit worried the the little 3/8 bolts may bend.
I was also thinking that I might drop the 5/8 rodends and buy 1/2 inch rodends with a 5/8 thread so I dont have to modify the suspension links and I wouldn't need reducer bushings if I drilled out the lower mounting holes???
Looking at that rear lower link arrangement, I would be concerned as to what prevents the Upright/Wheel flexing, or rotating around the upper mounting point as indicated by the yellow arrow on this picture below?
Finally got the rear suspension completed and working. I drilled out the rear uprights lower bolt holes to 1/2 inch bore and got some 5/8 thread 1/2 inch bore rodends so i could use the current arms. All works nice and smooth and a big thanks to Jim C for all his advice.
Nose panel Dzused on.
Panels aligned....need plenty of filler to fix bad gaps.
Door handles inner and outer working
AU Falcon ADR37/01 compliant engine fitted with new gearbox mounts made. Gearbox has to come out again for painting and fitting of flywheel and so on.
Will swap to 8 Stack after rego.
Next job brakes. Swapping the brakes down to smaller items so I can fit 15 inch Wheels.
