Jon, somehow when I read your question yesterday it didn't register ---

yes we can still get in the  original lines---the windscreen is to get the flat part to 50 degrees--- for better visibility---we sort of tested  it and that is close to the angle of late model cars viewed from the rear standing on a box it doesnt seem very disruptive--we may tuff it but we will not spend much time---we are fast running out of it!!!

Sparky,
I did a quick look at your axle and with the axle constrained as you have it a 100 lb. load at the end of the axle will make it deflect .0006 inches. Doesn't look to me that radius rods are called for here and being that the axle is pretty stiff in bending I would not think that there would be any sort of frequency problems. What this also says is that the vertical deflection of the axle will be directly proportional to this deflection for 100 lbs. That is to say that if your front wheel has a load of 1000 lbs vertically from the weight of the car the axle will deflect upward .006 inches, again pretty darn stiff.

Not much matters and the rest doesn't matter at all.

Sparky, it's coming along nicely! :cheers:

Found the plate for the nose on the Wild Weasel  its the tail end of a pylon tank off a F-86 Saberjet made in 1954---goes well with my F-105 Thunderchief
