So my Allspeed engineering Honda subframe finally turned up on Tuesday

Image

I was quick to unwrap it, what a sexy piece of workmanship, I also purchased the lower arms and have already purchased their HD driveshafts and CVs

Image

I then strapped it into my car and drove to my engineer so he could inspect the frame which he gave his tick of approval to.

I start a new job working FIFO 20/10 on Monday so work will be slow from now on unfortunately.

What radiator does it use? Looks like it would be a tight fit!

It didn’t come with one, I will need to source one.. I have seen people use modified civic radiators however I’m going to some measurements I think a daihatsu sition radiator and condenser will fit

My suggestion- Try and get a proper civic one in if you can- anything smaller like a sirion one make sure it has plenty of unrestricted air flow and a good fan!

Does this frame retain the original mini front track ?

Progress has been non existent, as I have had nowhere to work on it

I have just bought a house, and a hoist. Over the next 1-2 months I will get a decent shed installed and eventually the hoist. And I’ll start working on it again.

I’d like to have it all installed and be waiting on the wiring by December but that might be ambitious.

Then next year I will tear it down, and do the body work

so i finally got a sandblaster and all associated bits and pieces to start sand blasting the calipers to restore them ready for for assembly and my (new to me) old compressor contactor crapped out on me..so i will just bolt them back together so i can get my mini moved to my new house so i can start lopping the front end off.

in other news progress on getting a shed built has ground to a halt at the moment so i will have to persevere with my current shed and equiptment, meaning no hoist :(
