The mounting points for the shock absorbers are a mystery. I turned down gutter bolts to make the plugs.

Made and fitted the track pin bumpers and added a nice big weathering score as if a loose pin had struck it. These need to be totally functional as one day a rogue pin may need bumping back in.

That's the one, very detailed clear drawings in chronological order of the various production changes of the T1 and T2, and I mean detail. Well worth the bucks if you can find one! 8)

Hi Ivano
There should be information here:
http://tiger1.info/EN/Batteries.html
Unfortunately David Bryden's website hasn't been working for the last couple of days.

Managed to find a cached webpage with the pictures:
https://web.archive.org/web/20120108063 ... eries.html
Hope this link works for you.

Making the "stand off bolts", it's only when you start making parts like these that you appreciate the work that goes into the kit from Armortek.
IMG_20200917_112726_kindlephoto-5319488.jpg
I don't mess around when tapping small parts, I use the quality machine taps and fire them through in just one pass.

With the 3d printer set to very fine the finish is pretty good but still requires a little fetling.
