    What let go? You suddenly appear to have excess camber on the right front.

    Ok so i thought I would put some photos up of how the new arm is made (well this is how I do it anyway)


    The plans actually have drawings needed to build a jig to make the arms. It consists of a flat plate of steel with a series of bolts to mount blocks of various sizes to. I had this stashed away in the shed from when I originally built it. Lucky I didn't leave it in the rain or it would of rusted.


    After cutting up the bent A arm I managed to salvage the inner tube that mounts to the chassis and the chunky steel bits at the other end where the shock and the heim joint bolt up.





    So I cleaned them up and put them in the jig.

    Looking at the plans I suss out the angles that the tube has to be notched at. Using an online notch calculator web page I print out pdfs with the curve of the "notch" on it. Cut this out and wrap it round the pipe, then use a marker pen to transfer it, then cut with grinder.

    So thats where I am at now.

    The last photo is a top down view of the lower, front right hand arm (the one that bent)

    I am thinking of running a tube from the center of the top tube to the bottom left (as you look at the picture) and maybe a gusset or 2.

    That’s probably a good idea......from the video it didn’t look like it was a real hard hit.
