Well, got a slight update at last :)
Managed to finish constructing the rear end today and put her back on 4 wheels :)
Got 2 gussets to make up to brace the shock turrets to the chassis then all that's left is to make up some spacer shims to sit eather side of the rose joints, then roll her over and finish seaming up the joints that I can't get towhen it's the right way up!!

Then the wheels went on and it was put on the floor:

What car do those coilovers come out of? Have you had driveshaft clearance issues yet?

propshaft & axle clear everything fine, although there is only 60mm clearance between the axle and the chassis, but not expecting the suspension to move any more than 30mm from it's static position ;)

These coil overs have been superceeded already and they have only been on there 3 days! LOL They are from a TVR Cerbera, but I've just got a set of Gaz Gold fully adjustable shocks from a TVR Tuscan to go on instead, so this will allow me to raise and lower it as I need to ;)

Well today I needed to work under the truck to finish off the welding..... unlike normal people who would jack the truck up or put it on a ramp to finish off, I did it a little different :)
truck all prepped to weld:
Image

Then needed to weld in other places, so over she went again :)
Image

All the welding finished on the chassis it's time to prime the underside for it's colour :)
Image

Image

So tomorrow the chassis should be all green and the truck back on it's wheels ready for the mods on the front suspension :)

That's the most awsome way I've ever seen to weld on the under side of a truck!!!!!!!

Well, a long over due update here!!
The rear end is all finished now with the new adjustable coilovers fitted, and another brace from the suspension arm crossmember back to the chassis just to be sure nothing moves under power or while drifting also stiffend things up a touch too!
Image

Then I moved on to the front suspension as I'm going to be running coilovers up there too :)

Anyway, to give myself some clearance between the anti roll bar (sway bar) and the steering I am moving the bottom ball joint from under the arm to on top, along with a 25mm spacer which is also going to give me an extra 40mm track eather side!
Image

This is roughly where the shock is going to sit
Image

and the top mount for the coilover on the front end
Image

Image

And the new top arms for the front which will mount eather side of the coilover:
Image

Image

I've given the welds another going over so they are propper strong now and look prety sweet :) all thats left to do is paint them and they are set to fit :)
