Hinges painted.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/matsgarage.com-15176-1407009013.2.jpg)

Headlight lids had 2-3 layers of paint, had to scrape it off before mediablast and primer.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/matsgarage.com-15176-1407009014.3.jpg)

Scored two 15" Fuchs, sadly they're 8" wide so I'll try to swap them for two 7"

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/matsgarage.com-15176-1407009015.4.jpg)

Picked up some small parts from powdercoat aswell.

This weekend was 2 steps forwards and then 1½ backwards... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)

Glued the races for the front A-arm bushings on the A-arms on friday in preparation for
mounting the front suspension on saturday. Got the parts back from surface treatment
early saturday and proceded to mount the ball joints on the Aarms. Left went fine....right went....wtf is this!

Attached Image

Aaaah of course, another trace of the hit to the front right corner that some PO never fixed correctly. Getting another A-arm is managable, will cost me about $150 to get one and get it mediablasted and powdercoated. Sadly tho the bearing races are stuck to the old one and not coming off. I've emailed Elephant racing hoping to purchase a pair of loose races.

Annoyed with this I started on the rear suspension arms instead, drilled
and tapped the holes for the grease nipples, and my M6 thread tap broke off in the last hole.... I left Mr Murphy in the garage and called it a day at that point... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

Perfection when seen by mere mortals is a humbling revelation.
So,that's how.

Thank you.....but its really far from perfect. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

New front right A-arm on the way from Germany and Elephant Racing are sending two new bearing races. Now I just need to squeese into the powdercoaters schedule
and get some paint on the new part.

If you used JB weld or other such metal epoxy, heating evenly with a torch should melt the epoxy & allow to be pulled off. Check with Elephant though. I used the Rebel Racing Bushings, and this is what they recommend. I didn't have to remove mine, but the instructions that came with the bushings gave this advice.

Been some work done the last weeks and I made a Christmas special catchup post on my website so I'll just post a link to that since I'm to lazy to rewrite it all again.

http://matsgarage.com/?p=511

Merry Christmas and a happy new 2015 to you all. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drunk.gif)
