    Now is time for todays work on the shoebox

    [​IMG]

    the body floor is now dry and all the other things that was painted yesterday too

    [​IMG]

    the lower control arms from my jamco kit is screw to the frame
    the hard wear that was delverd with the kit was to short so i have to use longer screws

    [​IMG]

    the stabilations bar from the kit the screws to adpter pates was only 3pcs insted 6pcs
    so i have to use difrent screws to them to
    the long screw down to the a-ars are in shortes model so i shall cange them when i have fix 2
    longer ones insted of the ones yhat was in the kit

    [​IMG]

    my sister son Andreas is helping me with assemble the front suspention

    [​IMG]

    to the upper arms there were not all screws to them
    so i have to use diffent screws here too
    The most of this front suspention will have metric screws insted of the UNF/UNC screws

    [​IMG]

    the front suspention on the frame

    The jamco kit looks nice but the hardwear that they deliverd was not right to it
