   The Chassis. 

   

My Kit arrived Saturday the 11th.December1999.
I laid it out to take the photos you see below.

Hello!  My work on my kit was curtailed a bit due to the Christmas, New Year and Millennium festivities and other jobs round the house, that won't wait.  However I have started once again and I am quite pleased with my efforts.

My first job was to paint the chassis. I used black Hammerite paint to start with and this seemed less brittle than the silver. Then finished it off with enamel as this was more resilient to stone chips.

The next task was to fit the front axle assembly and this was straight forward.
I fitted the wishbones and spindle carriers with the Cortina ball joints ( supplied in kit ) also the anti-rollbar and steering rack.
The new bushes on the anti-roll bar were a bit difficult to fit.

Next I fitted the front shock absorbers and springs ( available as an extra from JBA ) The only problem I had here was finding a bolt to fit the top mounting, a 10mm bolt had too much movement. then I found the answer this bolt is not a metric bolt, but a British bolt.

The Front Brakes was next on the agenda. I bought new ventilated discs and calipers, together with new pads and brake cylinder seals.

This completed my work at the front end in the meantime.

Work on the rear end started and you can see photos of this in the next page.
