Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

some pics of the rebuild process,

the top trailing arm bracket is broke......

the diff is sloping back a little (looking up) so that will need sorting.......

As you can see there isn't a lot of bracing in an S1 chassis, that will be sorted.

I can't find what page you are on Dave

If you click on my reply it takes you thee......

O.K. it is this tablet thing, gone on the big desktop Flintstone computer and it clicked on it.

My Dunlop tracking gauges got used for real today.....

I had set the car up by eye......and it came in at 1 degree toe in....not bad but I adjusted it to 20 minutes toe in.

My camber gauge got used as well.....I have set both sides to .75mm negative 

All nipped up and adjusted....

"0.75mm"? what is that in degrees? My Legerra is about 2.5 degrees negative, which means that the outside wheel is pretty much vertical when cornering at the limit of grip. My body roll is virtually 3 degrees, two up, or 2 degrees solo (measured from photos of the car in action at Castle Combe). Of course, I didn't set that up - it was like that.

Yeah....that would be 0.75 degrees negative camber....oops......my front suspension is quite stiff.......it's trial and error for a while.

Too much neg camber James. Trying to measure roll based on a photograph is not very accurate, you'll have tyre deflection which will appear to look like roll from an outside view.

Well the car is insured from Saturday this next week... (14/1/17) but it's still not quite there.......roof needs securing at the front and the doors need a strap to secure them shut.

It'll be a few weeks after I get the MOT before its done fully.....

20 mins. are you sure Dave? that's nearly 1/2 hour in old money. :-))

Been saying for months that the week I put my car on the road it'll snow......

So I guess you can blame me for the weather this weekend.......

Would make for a great picture though Dave. Wheel it out of the garage into some nice fresh snow with no foot prints to get the picture, even better if you have some lighting to throw on it.   

I used to have a picture of my green phaeton with about 10" of snow on it........drove really well.....except the spoiler acted like a snow plough...
