Hi

Funny I had been reading these pages myself recently! It was actually the guys at LB who suggested the macpherson strut arrangement at the back. They use it in heir stratos replica to very good effect. It'll give you more room for an end on transmission too.Front steering and suspension is very similar to the deon just modern donor parts but all purchased new. He has invited me up with my 16" cromadora wheels to see if they fit his set set up using 300mm discs, so I could possibly use his mechanicals in my build.Also looking at an engine cradle similar to his as a starting point to.
