Started building my chassis in preparation for my LP640 project. Here are some pictures of my progress so far this week. My goal is to have section ODC-9100 complete by the end of next week. I have been building this first in my computer first and it has been a great help to understand how everything goes together. I want to thank the guys that have helped me this far!

I would not use the front triangular support on part 9130. Just use te rear for support and use the same shock fixing support as used in the rear suspension. Why? because when you will install your front shocks the way it is originaly, it will not align correct. The top bracket needs to be pushed a little to the front of the car.
See this pic, I think you´ll understand what I´m saying:

MMBRAZIL oi tudo bem? Did you make another 9650 rear shock mount to weld at the front? I see that you did not install part 9130 on yours but I can’t tell by the picture where the new shock mount is supposed to go. To what part did you mount it to?

Obrigado!

Oi, I used the same bracket used in the upper rear shock, the one welded to the engine side wall. If you look at my picture it is welded at the botom of the hinge tube. you can see it behind the .75 x .75 tube that goes from hinge tube to trunk side wall. And you can notice it sits about .75" off the hinge tube.
I always weld the upper brackets of the shocks, front and rear after I have suspension installed and shocks bolted at the bottom, this way you can have them perfectly vertical.

De nada!

I did similar to MMBRAZIL for the front top shock mount except I didn't leave it hanging off the edge of the hinge beam. To give it more support, I extended the width of the hinge beam from the main frame out to the end by about 0.75" to give the shock mount added support.

Yes! As the above have stated the front shock is a problem area. What I did was bolt the shock to the mounts before welding in place. Make the shock square with the mounts and position in the control arm and the hinge beam. Tack the brackets in place and make sure the travel of the shock is perfect before final welding.
These front shocks take a HUGE amount of load and I have seen them wear out very fast. If things are out-of-square you can count on 1000 miles between bushings if you're lucky.

Ok, guys I will hold off on placing the top shock mounts until I am ready to install the suspension, you guys are great, thank you!

Here is the progress for this week, we got a bit of rain last night and didn’t get a chance to cover the chassis Embarassed but we’ll get it cleaned up.

We actually got a bit more done than we expected, hopefully by next week I will have the engine cradle done also.









That's all for this week! Very Happy

Hi, another thing I do is first weld one side suspension bracket then weld the other one with suspension attached to it with a tube running thru the bushings thru both brackets,I think its much easier to aling the the angle and perfect distance between them.

Yup. It goes together pretty quick. Cutting is the slow part
