new and improved rear upper

I think this one is going to work.  It's just tacked together for now and I still need to add bracing, but you get the idea.

Long time - new parts

As you can see it's been a long time and I haven't really worked on the car.  The biggest change around here is I am training a new worker... but I hope the car is done before she offers any help.  Say hi to Amelia.


On with the locost.  Just go my Christmas present from Jack (http://www.kineticvehicles.com/)  A haynes nose and scuttle.  Fit is perfect and they look great.  Maybe this will give me some motivation to get working.








I have designed a new rear upper control arm.  Maybe I can get them built in the next week or so.

Rear shocks - Part1

I revived my shocks that I plan to use for the rears.  QA1 82 series, 8242 is the model.  4" stroke, 9.38" compressed, 13.75" extended.  They are not going to fit between the rear upper arm and the upper mount.

So I think I am going to weld a plate to the lower arm and weld a shock mount to that.  Then I will fab an upper mount just above the inside of the upper arm.  It looks good mocking things up.  I will post pictures when I am done.

Rear upper control arms - part 2

Rear upper arm in place.  Now I need to do it over again for the other side.
