Building a front wheel carrier for the 101, I'm in the early stages, I've a
little more to do but the principle is to carry the wheel up front. I need
the rear doors to open fully still and don't fancy punching holes in them.
I'm trying to retain the vehicle externally in it's origional condition so
the wheel carrier has to be removable.
I've also made it such that eventually once I locate some 3/4 inch linch pin
affairs to fix it the whole unit will be quick release incase I actually
need to use the front recovery points.
Those I've spoken to so far who have driven vehicles with front mounted
wheels report no problems with cooling, I've thought this over and given the
low pressure generated by the wheel in the radiator duct it should infact
help draw up air between the large gap in the chassis rails into the same
As ever I've took a few piccys, I've yet to tidy up the item and finish the
structural frame. Once it's all together all excess metal will meet the
plasma cutter wo allow further air to circulate.
