I can picture why ... lots of work to get the custom CAs set up "right" (actually an own project) ... and all the wiring harness and lines extended to be run with that super stretch.

Having the body assembled on that frame is just the outer shell

Been busy for a while so not much in the way of updates... little free time and the suspension designs taking up lots of time... but... I think we have decided on a paint colour

Here's 3 Paint Samples - testing on the dash in various lighting conditions 1 is a custom candy red, 2 is Ferrari Rosso Fuoco and 3 is Alfa Romeo Competizione Red (from the 8C)... I'm liking number one

You can't beat the Candy, you can change it so much by what base colour you lay down.( Gold, Silver, Black Pearl) then the candy red just pops.....

OT, what Kenwood system is that, looks like your running Garmin through it..

Candy gets my vote..

The Kenwood system is a Toyota-specific shape model - DDX-830W - and the Navigation is on a separate black box which is also Kenwood - but has Garmin internals / software. It's a good unit.

They do similar things with more generic double-din shape models too - which is what I have in the MX5. Love Garmin navigation for out here on this side of the world.

Long overdue for an update

Suspension parts I designed cut on the water jet...



The slots allow bending by hand tools - no need for a big machine press brake



Unfortunately waterjet place missed out 2 parts and fused 2 parts together (no idea how) so they had to be re-done, and I made some fine adjustments to the control arm mounts.

Round 2 from the water jet place



Bent to shape and a much better fit, so much so it stays in place on pressure alone. All marked up and ready to be welded tomorrow.







These are the upper control arm mounts that will be between the frame rails....



This is the most complicated one - very pleased with it - 8 folds out of one piece of metal This is the combined bracket for the rear upper control arm AND the rear trackbar. This side is the control arm side...



This side is the track bar (panhard bar) side...



In the redesign I reduced the number of joins making it easier to form the shape.

That's awesome! I didn't think what I do for a living everyday could be translated into that kind of application. Very Cool. I'm a packaging designer so I draw in flat pattern all the time, then fold into something 3D.

Nicely done.

Having worked in Kuwait for 8 months as a heavy mobile equipment mechanic I know how it feel working in the heat and humidity. A/C is almost a must have. I would go back in a heart beat though. If they wouldn't have cut my contract I would still be there. I loved it there. If I could find a job over there again I would go. You've got some good work going on over there. I like what you're doing with your jeep. I wish I had the skills to use CAD like you do. Rock on mate!
