Re: Armoured doors

Front and rear wheel bolts

To those who have bult the RR armored car with solid wheels , did you find that the front and rearr wheel bolds , M5 X 16 csk front and M5 X 25 csk rear
were long enough? Or did you have to do some fettling to the wheel hubs ??
Thanks

Rear Axle

After assembling the rear axle I put the M4X6 grubs screws into the rear drum, EPO 208 , When screwed up these were slightly proud of the taper, so changed them to M4X4 , just slightly shorter but easier to remove in the future if this ever proves necessary

John thought his old Father might be geting bored with the lock down and ordered a Rolls Royce Armored Car for me to build , Part of chassis done and four of the tyres mounted to solid wheels ,So that is all three of us now building , Is Armortek adictive ??
