Lift looks bloody fantastic but you're being sucked into Max's darkside & not building, just polishing your pipe

HI Wagon, yeah I needed it to bolt to the underside of the engine mounting rails and also pick up all the suspension points, its a bit of a monster but it was the only way I could think of doing it, ive just finished the design for the hub carrier that ties it all together will posts some picks of that shortly

ha ha - I was going to ask have you decided to build one of the lifts?? - I have to admit its bloody good to be able to move stuff about again and work at a good height!!

I think I still need to send you some more drawings showing the layout of the laser cut parts if you are thinking of it

Looking good Rich, but just get the bloody thing built or you'll mess another summer, but I do understand the build is as much fun as the drive

Brilliant work Rich, those rear arms look beefy, was it necessary to for them to be so big when they are only connected by 16mm bolts/rose joints?
