range rover extreme suspension turrets
heres hoping some of you will be able to help me out here,
ive got a 100" rangie chassis, ive cut 12" out of the centre both
sides, then measured from turret centre to turret centre and got
something like 86 3/4" which since im building a 88" is too much.
a mate of mine says he just cuts 12" out then shuts it up with no
measuring, and gets an 88" wheelbase,
so i looked at the rangie chassis diagram and they show that between
turrets is 100", ive ended up opening the join in the chassis about an
inch and a quarter to get the turret distance at 88", which it is now
bang on 88"
can anyone see any problems with what ive done if i just build it from
here. or should i cut it open again and shut the chasis up tight.
i think im ok building it as it is as im only going to get a wheelbase
at worst between 88 and 90.
this is obviously my first major build and im kinda doing it on my
own, but cant wait to get it together, its going to be a shortend
rangie chasis with a defender front end series back diahatsu 2.8
intercooled turbo with an extreme suspension kit and a r380 box.
just hope the bank manager understands.
so if anyone can offer me any advice id greatly appreciate it.
