FEW MORE JOBS DONE THIS WEEK ....Nothing particularly exciting , unless you are Ray !!
Rear brakes stripped out , all metalwork cleaned and painted and rebuilt using new cylinders and shoes ...
Anti-roll bar refitted on reversed suspension arms with new bushes fitted ...
Some welding that got missed welded on the frame , seatbelt mounts added and steering column mount made - steering wheel looks to be in a weird position in this picture ...its just the angle !! Its nicely centralized ...



Brake pipes started , new pipes made , main ones run and clipped to the chassis , new flexi's ready to go on .....

Steering sorted out ... I fitted a TR6 U/J in place of the standard Vitesse knuckle at the steering rack , then a second U/J half way up to deal with the change in angle required on the column , between the 2 U/J's on the lower section is a rose joint that will support that section ...



The rose joint is going to be bolted through a section of the front tubework ...I started this today as well , mounting the Lotus Radiator and creating a front section that will tie the bulkhead to the front framework and shock towers to add strength ...all bolted and fully removable to get access to engine if ever required ...



Hopefully get this framework and steering mount finished tomorrow ...
