Got the last major pieces for the suspension and road wheel units cut and ready for assembly.
These are the trailing arms that attached the road wheels to the suspension units.
Have a bit more lathe work to do on the 20mm rod that is attached to the trailing arm and will go through the tank body to the suspension unit.
Both the 20mm and 16mm rod in the test unit here are just press fitted into the trailing arm, there is no way they will come out but they will still be TIG welded around the backs to keep them in place.

The blue "tire" seen here has a split in it where I had to cut it to get it off the first test rim, these will be press fitted onto the rims last
