Front suspension is in, though no springs yet due to testing and setting camber and bumpsteer. The vertical metal plate was used as a poor-man’s bumpsteer gauge against the wheel studs. Bumpsteer is currently about 0.030″ or so – it’ll probably be left as-is. Initial camber and toe still need finishing.

The front cowl subassembly is in. The pedal assembly is in, the reservoir tank hoses shortened, and the brake and clutch lines wrapped, though nothing has been clamped down yet.

A lot of time seemed to vanish into clearing threaded holes and bores – a necessary evil – but bit by bit the garage floor is becoming visible again as parts slowly migrate back onto the chassis.

One nagging detail is the unpainted front steering arms… it’s always something.
