Just found this pic I did way before the rod was built, I was trying to see what a Macpherson strut setup would look like on a rod. It's cool to think it went from a little sketch to to a proper thing.
This is defo the fastest big fat skid I’ve ever done. Bring back the mk2 escort! 4th gear limiter and up over 100mph down the straight at Silverstone circuit. Hope I get to do that again at some point.
Old car, old yard! I miss that place, it was rough around the edges, had loads of character, rusty machinery everywhere, great crew of guys and everything you’d ever need for building stuff all in one place.
This thing needs to touch down onto its wheels next week so I can move it into the new workshop. I had a little mock up and the back wheels stick out past the the arches by 2 inches so looks like I’m gonna have to make my wide arches a tad wider.
Widened wide arches made from proper stuff. After my unsuccessful attempt of shaping fibreglass I saw the error of my ways and went back to steel. Please forgive me for my sins. These are mk1 escort bubble arches from @magnumclassicpanels widened by 40mm. Video up tomorrow.
