Hi,

Some more progress
20201118_153135_compress88.jpg
Primed and inside painted landrover ivory
20201213_153727_compress29.jpg
Steve Winstone bumpstops and torsion bar covers fitted
20201214_194602_compress71.jpg
Covers have been positioned to cover large counter sunk fastener - positions are not strictly by the book, orientation and Qty per side is correct
20201213_174004_compress19.jpg
To many parts all over the place time to get a few back together
20201217_191941_compress40.jpg
That's more like it

Checking the fit

Handy book

These steel tracks have done some miles - China to the UK then I sent them to Germany - then back to
the UK when I brought them back off Martin - tracks will be used for static purpose on one of my panther variants
20201213_173830_compress38.jpg
Should go a nice colour like my king tiger steel tracks

A few pictures of my sprockets being modified- only one side of the panther sprocket is removable - As I don't have a lathe or the skill to do this I sent them to Steve Winstone - many thanks Steve your help is most appreciated.

Sprocket after 12 years of running- this will be machined off

Picture with new steel ring attached -
Steve was only 80% happy as the sprockets would not run true - looks 100% - a true master

Hi David,
Are these two smaller hooks on the engine hatch the genuine Armortek's parts? If yes, what is the part code?
Happy building!

Best regards,
Lerh Chang

Hi,

I will check and report tomorrow Chang

Picked up some good quality Secondhand G clamps today - as I never seem to have a large enough clamp.

Hi,

Spent some time over the weekend assembling my sprockets, 128 fasteners later and £100 less in my bank job was done.

Beautiful sprockets! :D

Is there a specific reason for making the entire outer part in one piece, rather than a ring and hub as on the inside?
A little too much is about right...

Hi,

Martin Hofmann would be best positioned to answer why not but I suspect it's down to less machining cost and no real benefit in a two piece design as steel rings will not need changing.

Cheers

Hi Chris,
Hi David,
David you are absolutly right, that's are the reasons why i don't made 2 parts. Only the recess between the teeth and the castellated nuts are simulating that this will be 2 parts - but not really.
This will be a very good looking Jagdpanther. Keep up the good work, very interesting to follow.
Regards Martin
