The boys finished with the paintwork on the body...we moved it back to the workshop,and i started to fit the parts back on...
While the boys worked on the body,i've done my part of the painting....i resprayed the bits for the suspension...
Here is the repainted body on the trailer....better then ever...:)
Back on the ramp....lets fit the bits on..
The brakes are modified,cause the genuine Lada brakes are not good enough for rally...
The master cylinder is Fiat,the front brakes are VW G60 brakes with vented discs+Ferodo DS 2500 pads.The rear brakes:they were drum brakes originally,but they are replaced with Fiat Punto GT disc brakes + Ferodo DS 2500 pads.
The front and rear suspension is adjustable.The front suspension arms are wider then originally,and the rear axle is from a Lada Niva (4x4) which is wider then a standard Lada...The shockers are Bilstein..
Dash is in,Toyota Yaris electronic steering column fitted with a switch stalk from a Fiat Tipo.
I made a box for the main power switch,fuel pump switch,fan switch and a start button.This is in the middle between the seats.
The car is fully rewired by a professional,so everything work perfectly.
Engine and a few other bits fitted,slowly getting there... :)
