Left hand side test fitted

Got quite a bit done over the last few days
TIG welded all the stub axles into the trailing arms and assembled half the suspension units with lots of Coppercoate to get them moving.
Cut the retaining clips that go on the outside of the hull and hold the stub axle and suspension units to the side of the hull
Installed all the left hand side units and have tested the road wheels on the axles.
Also tried on one of its feet as well, they will have to be shortened but about 4-5 links but will do that last once everything is in.
Once thats done it will be time to hook up the batteries and give the left hand side a run to see if there are any other issues that need to be sorted before starting on the right hand side
Holes drilled through hull

Suspension units fitted with retaining clips in place

Road wheels fitted temporarily for testing 

There is still a small tire to go on each road wheel

About 4 links will need to come out of the tracks but still have to add idler wheels first
