lookin good mate.....there is a thread somplace about the neg camber thingy.....basicly take your top links,fill the excisting holes with weld etc,then make a simple jig and re drill 9mm i think it was further in,i went as close as i could to the bend in the link.......deasd easy,drops the front and gives better clearence for fat tyres,as the wheel is further in the arch,look in my garage section you can see the effects

That looks great. How soft is the front end now with one of the leafs removed? you might find that it needs to be stiffer.

I have AVO's on my 500, for normal road use I only have them on two clicks which leaves plenty of adjustment.

When are you going into paint? I'm looking forward to seeing this one done.

Decided to do some work on the 126 today as I'm off the crutches and had some time to Kill,

Got it started thanks to a new battery and some petrol in the carb to move things along...

The I clearenced the front arches with my Knockometer to allow the front wheels to turn then I started wet flatting the primer down today ready for paint I'll post some progress pics up in a day or two maybe even get some paint on the panels too!!!!!!

I have a brand new set of spax adjustables I got for the Bis rear end which are real short and i mean real short in the body, they have pin tops and eye bottoms as per Bis rear arms and I have never used them as i went for Avo coilovers instead, so they are available

cheers Doug
Its slow but it does it in style !!

not much progress to show at the mo as I'm no one wants to see lots of pics of primer being rubbed down... but ive been playing with a steering wheel..... bought an old astrali steering for a tenner and a momo sized fiat 126 boss then adapted the two and used fibre glass resin to harden the rim section (ooer) then painted it- below are results awaiting laquer and possibly some gold metal flake and putting back the trims where the centre meets the rim for that moon steering wheel on a budget look-
