Mount for suspension control arms ?

Very close (y) (y)

Its a frame to hold the Panhard Rod..........

I thought while I have the whole front end off I would change the front axle to an axle off a 15 ton Daf with disc brakes ( to match the rear axle that I changed last winter )

And fit full air suspension at the same time (y)(y)

I did this over Christmas while hiding in the workshop...........a few pics.....

Isn't it strange how when doing work on your own vehicle what starts as a sort of straight forward job with the help of (well whilst I am at it I might as well) turns in to a total rebuild lol

Can't wait to see the uplifted Bounder when it's done. Will you be at The Cuckoo Fayre in May Adi?

Trimming all the parts,

By taking the mold in 3 pieces it allows me to make the finished bumper 40mm wider each side

Jigged together

Just a few stitches of glass, when that goes off I can lay it down on its face and glass it together fully
