Wedge Suspension

had a good day well morning stripping the wedge got the front suspension of and cut away the bits i dont need prior to my own rebuild with coil overs, should be an improvement on the cortina setup mainly being able to use shocks and springs of your choice the top wishbone is going to be original with polybushes the hub and swivels will all be original the bottom wishbone and tie rod will be of my manufacture and fully adjustable for camber and castor.DSCN0055 DSCN0056 DSCN0061 DSCN0059 DSCN0058 DSCN0057 DSCN0059 DSCN0061 DSCN0060

Wedge Work

Started getting ready to remove the engine header tank and its plumbing out ,maf and filter out, some wiring removed and tagged still looking for the perfect system to mark wires tried tape with biro clip on numbers which seem to disappear any ideas out there, got the exhaust of nice stainless unit, hubs look really good recently replaced I feel. Got some SPAX adjustables on the rear look good no leaks etc, so a bonus there. Got the bonnet of which has new struts and found the drivers outrigger needs replacing very bad crack on the rear strut plus some rot in the centre someone has had go at it and made a real bodge I guess the drivers has gone due to it living in France most of its life.

Starting the Wedge

Got at last to start on my wedge it is now in the workshop which has been rearranged after the chimaera build you learn as you go along nothing much happened yet but have had a good look round the chassis looks good it has had outriggers and they look to have been well fitted first jobs get the building jacks under the car and the wheels off suspension off and the engine out so we can really have a good look.
