Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
Two drop link bars at an angle (tacked on for now) meet the Corsa C column mounting points.We'll see how this goes dealing with the torque reaction forces. If it's a bit wobbly, we'll think about adding some more. Wooden supports will shortly be installed in my multifuel stove...
Close-up. Ignore the butchered wires for now! Eagle-eyed readers will note that I've installed the Corsa column upside-down so the motor is on the left hand side. This is simply to help it clear the fillet plates. The column can be unbolted and removed, and even the bracing /plates can be unbolted and removed in a single assembly.
The splined end of the Ford column has been welded into the hollow Corsa column, although it did need lathed down a touch first.
Got new poly bushes for the front struts, but the bolts for the upper wishbone mounts are seized solid in the bush crush tubes. These will need to be destroyed to get them out, so they can stay there for a while as the bushes aren't that bad.
Got a bit to do, but getting there!
