Cab Floor to Chassis Rail

Post by Kevin Hunter » Sun May 17, 2020 4:27 pm

After years of neglect I have dug out my Quad and started putting it together. This pandemic must have been good for some things :D

I've hit a snag and wonder if anyone else experienced similar? Having read the various forum posts I haven't seen it mentioned but that's not to say.....

The issue I have is that my cab floor assembly will not sit correctly on the top chassis rail. The problem appears to be that the sides of Part EM0318 (centre floor) are too long, and interfere with the wishbone shaped sub-chassis which (I reckon) is meant to fit into the recesses under the floor.

I could cut the sides of EM0318 back, enabling the wishbone to drop in with the floor fixing holes aligned with the fixing holes on the chassis. Before I go cutting into precious metal though I wondered if anyone else had to resort to such action?

Thanks - hopefully
Kevin

Hi Kevin,

You are not alone, I had exactly the same problem.

My solution was to bend the offending ends out to clear the obstruction. Easily done with a pair of pliers.

Thanks Shaun
Relieved to know it’s not just me building it wrong..... I’ll have another look and decide whether to cut or bend. Either way the problem can now be resolved.
All the best
Kevin

No problem Kevin.
This old picture shows my quad before the decals were added. It's a basic build with a few Armorpax parts thrown in.
I didn't bolt the body to the chassis, It makes it reasonable to lift in and out the car and really easy to work on too if required.
The quad is an simple to get out play thing, without having to worry about transportation bits and bobs.
Hoping the UC will be the same 8)
