nice build!
pictures say more than words (see my own thread :mrgreen: )

What happend with the alignment :shock:
camber is a good thing, but only if it is negative :mrgreen:

keep us updated ;-) :tu:


Alignment will be done way in the end, as suspension and engine is still out

Suspension work is all done, coil over experiment worked and came out great, rest testing that will be after engine is in and check the spring load.

The struts were cut and piece with billet steel made to be welded and have a thread on top, then a sleeve to go on the billet part from lower end and will take the coilover from top, gives height adjustment as well.

Here all parts
Image

Cutting the struts
Image
Image

Welding it
Image
Image
Image
Image

For top custom plate with same holes as stock upper mount from outside but inside same as stock coils so was replaced.
Image
Image
Image

So final outcome from this before
Image

to THIS
Image

Image
Image
Image
Image

For rear just installed the suby ones as is, will get it painted once cars gets paint as needed to move the car now, there will be two springs one on the coils and other stock one which came cut from Japan.
Image

Tie rod ends are fixed as well came out similar size to hako
Image

The end bushes were replaced filled with grease as well

Before
Image

Now
Image
Image
Image
Image

As finishing the front suspension so got some brake pads which will fit Hako as well
Image
Image
Image

As said earlier sent all bolts, locks of hood, trunk, hood hinges, headlight rear trims, fuel line and some other misc for galvanizing to get it cleaned up and rust free came out good not great but will serve the purpose.

Image
Image
Image
Image

got some brass bolts to go along with some of these engine parts.
Image

Now will fit all engine parts and try to start the engine as all engine suspension job is done repaired or replaced except rear control arms, in the meanwhile push the bodyshop guys to finish the bodywork to have the car on the road before summer

Engine all bolted up, looking great, might look at cam cover again once engine is dropped in, now bolting up the gearbox in a day or two and start the engine to check if everything is ok.

Image

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Front suspension parts all bolted up which is a good news as tie rod ends was from other cars, but with few washers everything looks good.
Image
Image
Image
Image

Now waiting for the bodywork guy now to start his work
