  1. Thanks Mo, that should work... drew up these lower inner wing panels, they'll attached to the original front tab & will add a second tab off the inside bolt on the spring tower that holds the bump stop mounts in. Can then work to draw the rest up as I'll have a solid datum. I wanted them to be easily removable with the wings in place for cleaning & maintenance, this should work well.
  2. Thanks Mo, spent a couple of hours yesterday on it and think I’ve come up with a good compromise that’ll work with the later type, will check it out with that dimension. BTW, the end of the collapse casting looks to be about 150mm from the UJ centre pivot and about same diameter?
  3. For ‘missingsid’, here are a couple of pics under my drivers side wing. I currently have the old type of lower steering shaft RTC4738 but the large collapse section is getting in the way of making some sheet inner wings. Could someone measure the diameter of the black flex disc in the later QME500031, can get an idea then of how much space I have to work with. Thanks
  4. Did some more trial assembly on the front axle with the custom brake caliper brackets, worked out well & can now get the other side cut. Next to assemble the back axle and work on suspension brackets.
  5. Thanks guys, will have a play with the old one. Am working to make them out of flat sheet and I can get waterjet cut, so was working off the original lower mounts about a inch off the outside of the chassis rails.
  6. Hi, Can anyone confirm that the later lower steering column, part #QME500031 will replace the early type. Looking to make some space for custom inner wings on my D100 project with challenge style wings. Thanks !
  7. Assembly jig being tested out, just need some 5” x 5” tube now to put the rear axle together.
  8. Had one of the C’s pressed onto the short side axle tube, now to design the link & spring brackets.
  9. Started to put the assembly jig together at the weekend....then found an oops... 🙄 Replacement should be here later this week.... and I corrected the drawing so when the bend lines are marked on the water jet, it folds up the correct way.
  10. Got some time to grind off the welds on the inner C’s, slit the stub of axle tube and hammer them out. Quick clean up with the wire wheel and there ready to install onto the new pieces of axle tube. Also picked up the latest batch of water jet cut parts, assembly jig, spring seats, front & rear brake caliper brackets and the drilling jig for the front Ford spindles to the Dodge unit bearing pattern.
  11. Of cause...we can always go play in the woods here 😃 Island wheel’in
  12. Not used for a lot at the moment, can’t seem to get it finished.... 😕 I have 35’s on it at present but want to change those out to 36 or 37’s, all depends on if I change the wheels too as finding 15” tires that are not boggers is getting slim pickings now. Once done...be heading into the mountains, have 350,000km of dirt roads here to go explore then off to Moab 😃
  13. Mike, are those Strange ‘S’ series 3rd member cases in those axles ?
