Comparison tranny beam

Here I fitted them to the section I still have from my donor car. Note, heights are not corrected. I will do this by machining the black spacers. This is just to take measurements for each to get the wanted height, but I show them to get an idea:

Door hinges reloaded

I received the aluminum hinges from GT last week. They look nice and are quite well made. The website says "made from high quality billet aluminium", wathever that means, after machining I can say it's not high strength (aircraft grade) aluminium like 6061 etc. more like Anticorodal.

However, against the stock ones, the are not made to fit the stock bushed, but to use with stock pin. As I don't like the idea of this, even if I anodize them when finished, I decided to machine them to accept the bushes. i had to machine off the inner ones and made a seat for the bushes to get 0.10mm of play with OEM bushes fitted

Further I drilled a greasing port for easier maintenance

I am very impressed with this whole build you are doing. The attention to detail is just awesome ! I have a grey market 930 here in Florida and slowly doing the same thing while trying to have some fun with it. Watching you remove every gram you can is the way to do it, lot's of little things add up big in the end. Most of the parts and people you deal with we do business with everyday . Keep the posts coming ... we are all looking forward to your first drive.

Big fan, too!
It's like the factory "R" 911 -- if it could be lightened, it will be lightened.

Thanks a lot guys

Just finished removing the "old" PB bushes from the a-arms, was easy to do. Will post pics tomorrow of my homemade special tool. BTW without destroying them!

...and the parts from TK are on the way, so I am never out of work

Further I had an idea how to get a better fit for my 2nd generation transmission beam, pics and solution soon

As promissed the ultimate bush-remove-unique-tool

BTW made this in workshop, not in living room, just before you guys ask...

Tool is just an old aluminum valve block, which I drilled out to 38mm, same diameter as bushes have. cut a slot and that's it.

As many already know, heat is the way to loose epoxy, JB welds. etc. so I did heat-up on a small hot plate for about one min. full power. don't know the temp, but over 200C for sure:



Then you have to be quick, to save as much heat as possible. Put a screw driver in the slot, to "open the bore a bit, then you can easely slide it over the bush. Remove the screw driver as soon the block is in position.
Now wait about 30 seconds to let the heat transfer to the bush. This is the point where the chemical structur of the glue is going to be destroyed:



Now clamp the block in the bench vise, so the bush will be hold tight without damaged (not clamp as an idiot, just tight) and while swaying the a-arm you can pull-out the arm. If you remove the glue before it cools down, it comes off quit nice.



And here they are like new:

Oh I did not say...? Those from RSR products in black. They are on the way to Switzerland from TK together with the Elephant strut mounts (As the Mode ones are obviously only virtually existing)

I don't think even a pro could tell the difference in performance. The sphericals are just the more complex, more expensive design Chuck came up with so that he wouldn't appear to be directly copying Clint. Just make sure you use the spherical washers with the Rebel Racing kit and you are fine.

Thanks Rob

I always try to do my best. Sometimes I fail, sometimes I get a good result. But I only show the successfuls here

No I am just kidding, of course you will see the failures too, and if it's just to avoid the same mistakes that I did. Luckily that's not that often until today. But I am sure, after I am back on street, some of my homemade solutions have to be improved in a way. We will see...
