When we first fit the front and rear uprights we hit a few issues (which we had generally anticipated) regards clearance of rose joint lock-nuts to the chassis pick-up points. I will re-profile these in CAD so that John's chassis does not have these issues. And will re-trim the pick-up plates on my chassis.

We also have to revise the sizes and design of some of the pick-up brackets to improve fit and structural integrity. And a few (so far) minor tweaks to the uprights for package, which I will have completed back at Kiartys. Also need to design some supports for bearing installation.

We need to see how the steering arms behave when we apply the 10deg bend. If necessary I may need to have the angle machine directly into a larger blank, if they damage during bending.

We have some adjustable links installed in place of the shockers which enables us to check clearance at full drop and rebound, and full lock on the fronts.

We have also assembled the RHS rear suspension for the first time, and then checked that the LHS and RHS uprights were perfectly parallel. Because when we assembled the LHS it looked to be toeing in a substantial amount, but that proved to be an optical illusion! And to quote Anthony "we had to make a small rose joint adjustment to get zero toe". This is excellent news as has confirmed that the suspension bracket jigs that position all the mounting brackets onto the chassis, and the wishbone jigs for building the wishbones are all doing there jobs as designed. And also enables us to return everything to nominal if we get lost with the suspension set-up.....or bend a corner (hopefully not!).
