We'll essentially build the entire car twice; an "initial" assembly during fabrication, then we'll disassemble it, paint it and do a "final" assembly. This is the beginning of the "initial assembly/fabrication" phase. We have lots of fabrication to do before "final assembly"......
Our first objective was to
assemble the suspension system in order to verify fit and overall
alignment. Lothringer Engineering did an initial setup for us;
we wanted to verify the setup and make a record of the all the
various adjustments so that we could repeat them after disassembly
for painting. Additionally, we need the trailing/control arms
installed so that we can determine the correct shock specifications
(overall length, length of stroke, etc.). We'll fabricate and
install temporary struts to take the place of shocks to get the
chassis into a "roller" condition initially.
