S27 B186 re-build continues

Not too much progress over last 2 weeks, but some work has been done. Repaired damaged body tail and started working on suspension. Even done some preliminary test fit assembly. Front upper suspension arms seems to be at too much of an angle, but I don't see any other way to get proper ride height. Main issue is angles of rear suspension arms. On real car upper arms go bit upward and lower arms seems to go a bit downward. In the kit it complete opposite. The only way I can see to connect arms, uprights and push rods is to have upper arms point a bit downward and lower arms point a lot upwards. I don't like that, but could not come up with solution so far. It seems that i would have separate lower arms and re-attach them to gearbox at higher points. Not sure I will be willing to do that sort of modifications.

Here are some quick shots. Sorry for poor lighting and mess on my workspace.

  1. The ride height looks fine, nice to see it in basic primer. Keep up the great effort.
