I have pulled the dummy power train out along with the cradle I plan on sitting the real engine & transmissions into it when it has come back from repairs & Paint @ Greg Van Zelst's. I still have some welding & gussets to fit 1st.
I had to find 2 rims for the front. With the right neg offset. A friend had 2 that worked out giving me 10mm clearence with out spacers. tyres are a bit small for what i want
due to cutting floor & footwell back for tyre clearance. I had to move jack points this left a gap to fill. I decided to use 100mm x 50mm x 3m wall thickness A lot stronger than stock
this should do the job
Next job make patterns for new panels
Good evening all. i have been catching up on the small time consuming jobs. mounting the Astra power steering pump charcoal canister engine fuse & relay box finishing of Tarago shifter set up to operate the Hi Ace box mounting coil to left side head moved it out on longer bolts & lock nuts to distance it from heat of head.
Shifter locator for gearbox end
rough pattern for heat shield
this is a bracket i had to fabricate to stop the front of the rack moving around. In the Daewoo it sits in a rubber grommet.
I check in & always am in awe & leave shaking my head. How is all this mod possible.
Good evening David just keep going as i find a problem I find a solution. the time taken fabricating stuff from art cardboard patterns is as long as making the patterns.

I bought a flange today to use for the rim retainer. I cut up & lengthened the Subaru tow pin then welded anut onto the 10mm plate to fit inside to hold the spare insitu
next job is filling in the gap on the floor.
I rolled a length of 25mm copper tube to form a dress band on the steel rod to give it size. I will be soldering it into place.
rolled ready grind section out using flappy disc. this will let it fit over the rod
knocking out the waste
Now to solder it on
I made these up to fit 90 degree black steel elbows onto to form the slider bars. these will be held in with a bolt from underneath with a nut welded into the tube
Passes nobility scale for the top half of the curve.
Not sure about copper run off to steel? Please tell me there's some paint to aid isolation.
I watch with interest as always.
Evening David I will find out about that. If that's the case i will get it chromed or cad plated. Please explaaaiiinn the nobility bit to me
You can run water down the galvanic scale (ie least noble to most noble is okay),
To run water UP the galvanic scale produces a reaction in the least noble metal & it becomes the sacrificial anode.
The one that leaves town first.
So copper above steel is the issue.
Best to isolate the 2 surfaces to reduce contact.
