there are a few that would argue that i can't change gear properly.

Some news at last from Spanner Monkey Island!

Looks like the idle beast has got off his big blue arse and started fiddling with metal instead of his balls... It's 3mm mild steel with an anti-corrosion coating apparently.

Anyway, the 4 shapes on this chunk are the front mounts for top and bottom wishbones. These will sit around the chassis box and be welded to it. Top mount is level with the outside of the chassis box, bottom mount level with the inside.

Monkey boy reckons he's been a bit radical with the anti-dive so the bottom wishbone front mount is 100mm down from the underside of the chassis.This apparently angles the lower wishbone down at the front so that under heavy braking the 'bone is not acting parallel to the chassis, thereby reducing the load that the suspension receives. This could also be done by angling the top wishbone backwards, but my hairy friend never felt that was very efficient.

The other shapes are the balljoint mount plates. these will have reinforcement gussets around them. The lower mounts will be tied in to the coil-over bottom mount.

I'm obsessive about colour, so rather than rely on web photos for accuracy, I'm getting samples of the actual finishes sent over from Forgeline to compare against our Comp Orange Calipers etc. in the flesh. Already, the photos of the wheels and the photos of the samples look quite different. But it's awesome that Forgeline will do this.

Probably end up going for a bad ass black combo anyway...

That's why I need to see in the flesh rather than onscreen. None of them are grey.

You like Matte Bronze.
