    Hi Timo,
    That looks great - big job, and good results! I take it you didn't have to deal with undercoating? Took me a long time to get that off on my car.
    Regards, Doug

    No undercoating so quite easy Job To grind Off. About 4h or so for the half of the floor. I cleaned the other half earlier.

    I installed the Front end stuff today with the bags:

    Today i mocked the 4link and welded rear for body install before finall weld process. Just want to make sure that Front wheels turn ok etc. I dont have the Front rims so i have to measure everything with the old rims and tires on the front. New rims arrive about month or so. Gonna post video tomorrow about the body install.

    Those can be frustrating things to do when the car is build. I hope to mock everything before buiding final time

    Im little bit strugling with the 4 link upper bracket, do they need to be on the top of belhousing or does the centerline of axle be enough? I tacked the chassis bracket already and if the upper needs to on top of the rear then I have to cut Those out and move them upper

    Timo, if you bought someone else's design or kit, you should follow their instructions explicitly IMO...

    Timo, what you want on the mount for the upper bar is for the bar to be parallel to the lower bar when viewing from the side. It's difficult to tell from your video whether you have that or not.

    This avoids binding when you are cornering and the outer wheel is compressing the spring while the inner wheel is extending the spring.
