So about the car…

Fixed the steering rack mounts which of course took a while. Puzzled out the first suspension bracket (the first one always takes the longest.) Also, the rear brackets on the front suspension are tricky because they’ll extend through the bodywork. I’m trying to make it so there’s no gaping holes when it’s all done, letting in dirt, water splashed up by the tires, or pissed-off bees. However, suspension pivot points are critical so the bodywork will have to deal with it if necessary. Anyhow, the boxed-in brackets will make them about a million times more reliable than the fine craftsmanship in the 24 June diary entry below.
