Right this week i'm off work to spend some time on LFE and fianlly get her back on the road. I am on suspension first and got a lot done today after my new welding mask turned up. By end of the week i want to have lowered car back onto its rear wheels as its currently sat on axle stands. Anyways let pics do the talking.

Well even though the weather pissed me around i still got a fair done. I trial fitted my Selholm Quickshift and its lovely, unfortunately there is no gearbox in the car currently. I also had trial fitment no 1 of the rear end. It looks awesome and should improve the handling no end.

Due to the crap weather i have been making my bias pedal box for the car and testing my new drill out!!! Its turned out well and will act as a bolt in replacement for the servo and MC assembly. All that is left to do is make the pivot assembly on the top of the box and brace the bottom. Anyway will let pics do the talking.

Finished the bias box today, very pleased with the outcome, just need to remake pivot to get a smoother movement on the cylinders. I boxed the top of the box in to give strength on the pivot mounting, but i needed the balance bar to be accesable so on the bottom i braced the corners, and because i'm a bit of a tart at making things look good i rounded them.... :oops:

I have had a spare day on LFE so got round to doing more work on the axle, it turned out the top bars were not compatible in the location they sat in, and i had no movement for travel at the ride height i wanted so i sorted that with shorter brackets.

 

The other ballache i had was that all coilover brackets i can find for sale were not wide enough for my spax, so i widened some to fit, then to keep teh correct shocker position i had to notch them to fit the axle and gusset them to give their strength back.

 

The axle is now free floating and hanging under its own weight on the coilovers.

The cossie disks have also been drilled to suit the volvo stud pattern.

Some goodies also arrived for me in the post.

Enjoy.
