This is Bradley GT2 Project Car Build Update 10. Today I am happy to announce that the chassis is as done as I wanted it to me. Its not perfect but I do have to move on and get the body ready to get back on the chassis.
Bradley GT2 Project Car Build Update 10
Lets me start off by saying I am glad that I am calling this one done! In all my years of doing this I have never had a chassis fight me as much as this one has. Every nut and bolt was a fight just to get off. It did not matter if it was a 11mm or a brake line. All of it had different plans.
Here a bit of whats been done to this point.
- Brakes from lines shoes have been replaced.
- Chassis has been painted
- Bearings have all been greased
- shift bushings replaced
Really the list is much longer but I do not want to bore you with all of it. And although I am calling the chassis finished I still need to replace the steering bushing but its got the old rivets on it and they will have to be drilled off. I also want to take the engine off and replace the mounts just because.
And I have still not started the engine since I had it apart but with a bit of good luck is should fire back up and be good to go .
So whats next? Well the idea is to move the chassis out of the garage for a few days and put the body in. Once it is in the garage and flipped upside down I can get the wires run as well as the A/C lines so I can finally get the body back on the chassis where it belongs.
I wish I had more than this right now but I only mess with this car when I have the time so it has been a slow moving project. Hopefully when the body is back on the chassis things will move a bit faster.
