Default Rear end

Now for the back, the old sub-frame was in serviceable condition believe it or not but not for me, I wanted to use the beam axle my son had for his mini, the problem with these after market items they do no cater for everything and the beam was no different, it did not have provision for the handbrake cables so as its what I do I made that right…

Having that sorted the beam was drilled for fit and powder coated..

The beam was offered up and centralised, the car drilled and then bolted into place, I will be strengthening the heal plate it fits to later…

Nice new coil overs..

Refurbished swinging arms with new brake parts and bearings were then fitted to the beam, all the geometry will be set up at a later date..

I was going to have it sit on revolution 12” wheels…

But decided on these 13” Starmags..

The problem with all McCoy’s they sit high in the arch at the rear, even using hi-lo coil overs, I have thoughts on righting that later.
