Your extended chassis and body create a much more "mature" vehicle appearance than the original Vokaro. Looking forward to progress as you work through the component fitment challenges.

Yeah well.....it is not just little bit longer.....it is a lot lower.
Drop spindles, adjusters, pie cut, relocated Napoleon hats.......and a major body drop
Look at that down hill bar from the torsion tube to where it used to live at.

And some of the back end going together.

I did get the 28mm torsion bars set......at least for now.
It is just right..... right now.....I am guessing by the time all is together and settled in that I am going to need an upward adjustment .

Annnnd poof there goes a whole post.
Now to do it again.

Have not had much to me lately....lotsa work and a sickly wife. So most work as been small items.

Got the dial indicator and the degree wheel and found the sync for the distributor drive. Got the drive dog pinned on....which completes my Chevy distributor in a Mazda mod.

Made the throttle linkage and cables up.

In the meantime I have been jumping on the rear trying to settle the new springs. Seems to have worked. I have re-indexed the springs and put in the brake lines and axles.

This thing is more uneven and lopsided that you can see in the pictures.
The wheelbase/chassis/suspension is all in square/alignment. I cut the fender wells to make that happen.
But the rest of the body is up to an inch lopsided. Some of it averaged out.....some of it just had to be lived with.....or hack the whole body up into sections and remake the whole thing.
