Take care and get well. I have learned a lot reading your post and studying the photos. And at times I have found your avitars just as inspiring! So hang in there and get back to fabricating and building as soon as you can. Looking forward to seeing your next update.

Kevin started machining all the weldons for the rear suspension and the frame while we wait for the new push rod front suspension drawings from Steve. We are starting to make some headway with all the small parts.  Tony

Tony;

What is a "weldon"? The only Weldon that I'm familiar with makes electric fuel pumps, etc.

Parts that are fabricated away from their intended use and then attached to the main structure by welding are often referred to as weldons.

Oh, a "weld-on"; now I get it. I wasn't trying to be a wise Acura, I just never saw that word before. Thanks, Pete.  tongue

It's one of those words that's probably used exclusively in a rather small industrial area and unless you've been exposed there's no reason to know the terminology. There are a few mass produced weldons. The best example I can think of is hinges and once you know about them you'll find all sorts of uses.

Slightly easier to see?

It's a weldon.

They are weld-on parts and these are part of the rear frame where the control arms mount too. Tony

Finally the four weldons for the  rear suspension is finished. These little buggers look simple but took some time to finish up.  Now on to fishing up the rear suspension. Tony

Thanks for the kind words.  You wont believe this but those four little buggers took almost 25 hours to do. When you calculate what it takes to get any of our cars to the salt I think we work for pennies per hour if that. But that's part of the fun.  cheers Tony
