Recommended Posts

Following a small accident at the infamous Doune hill climb  months ago i was  forced to rebuild the rear of my Westfield XTR2 

 

 

 

 

was doing about 90mph and missed my breaking by 30 meters

Zero support from Westfield so I have made a comprehensive  jig for the rear of the car

It’s hard to tell for sure from the photos but is there definitely good weld penetration on the suspension mounts?  I can’t see any discolouration at all from above and thought I bc would.

Great work, best of luck! :)

 

Quick question - what’s that orange robotic thing looking on in horror - is it RoboTrump?
