As promised, the number plate brackets have been made, the TR4 plate illumination lamp looks the mutts nutts when fitted. The mounting bar arrangement has been roughed out, it just needs sorting out for height and welding. As the rear of the pressed number plate shows the registration in mirror format, another alloy plate has been made to cover the back, there are plans afoot for this. Should have pix of it in an early style on the next post.
Johnny bought a MIG welder last weekend, and now he's scored some wire and gas to run on it. Assuming that it works as intended, may well get some progress sorted.
Been giving the girder project lot's of thought, especially on how to fabricate the yokes. It's only conceptualising at the moment as offset has to be calculated, I am guessing that the stem center and the pivot axis should be offset around 60mm if 100mm links are used.
This is far out... spotted when he was 14, and sheer extraordinary luck occurred and he bought it at 16, drove it for 200,000 more miles, then stored, until his son now 30 years old said, "Lets fix it up and get it back on the road!" (just more proof that Muscle Car Review is fantastic!)
