Subframes are painted. Areas around the bolts were masked off for painting. Trial fit of suspension parts. I need more rubber boots before I can do the final assembly.

They are from Tarett.

I knew that NXI20 was running a well sorted suspension setup so I basically copied him. worship

Thumb - I was planning to go the same way on the front. I need to adjust my caster a little to allow me to run larger rubber.

The holes in LCA's are a little crude and do not allow for fine enough adjustments.

Keep the updates coming!

I am running rubber boots over the ball joonts. I have read of some people complaining that these are a real pain to fit. This is how I did it.

Take one joint and one boot.



Take the two ends off the joint.



Using a three arm spreader fit the boot over the joint, making sure it goes at least on to the thickest part.



Remove the spreader, then pull the boot the rest of the way on.



Use the spreader again to open up the sides for the side pieces.



Job done, a couple of minutes tops.

Ha ha. I have always had one in my toolbox, most commonly a smaller one for fitting rubber sleeving on to cables.

We once needed some new ball cages for the press tools at work. Had a bunch of Toolmakers stood round my desk whilst I searched for them. Quite embarrassing when the results came up. Embarassed

Fortunately Google censor stuff like that out now.......most of the time.
