    looks good keep it up!
     
  3. lots and lots of hard work tube notching there, by hand or by machine?
    does look good
     
  4. Started using a hole saw but after braking to drill bits and 1 saw we are now doing it by hand with a grinder and it takes just along as setting up the drill with just as good results the one n the pic was started with a drill to give us the radius then cut with the grinder
     
  5. blimey that is slow and painful method, still the results are good
     
  6. Its archery quiet fast after a bit of practice draw it. slit it, grind it lol using the bench drill is the best but it only goes down to 500rpm so its way to fast for cutting 32mm holes
     
  7. Looks good, but not sure about the upward slope at the front.

    Assuming you are having wishbone front suspension where is the front of the lower wishbone going to mount. Most similar vehicles I've seen carry the flat horizontal rails forward to this point then kick upwards.
     
  8. It has brackets that need to be made to locate the upper and lower A arms the slopping front should help to shrug of blows from tree stomps as well as give more clearance I see if I can get a pic of a finished one with the A arms on

  9. The angle of the suspension helps to make the ride smoother as you hit a bump they want to backwards not 90 degrees up so the angle is like a compromise its one of those things that’s easier to explain in person not type
     
  10. Yep see were your going now.

    Looks a good design, and a very nice machine.

    How's bump steer with those angles though?
     
  11. I honestly have no idea but they should be ok because the hubs are still mounted as if there was a normal a arm suspension so that will still lean slightly forward but I will find out in summer lol
