Aluminum Chassis built part2

Next step is the installation of the lower arms followed by the shock dampers, anti-roll bars and finally the assembly of the transmission and the innovative FFG system.

The FFG installation was quite a challenge as I found the front gearbox persistently binding but it was very hard to locate the area causing the problem. In the end, after several trial & error attempts, I finally located the area causing the bind. It was between two parts, AM43 bulkheads and AM42 upper link holders which were squeezing thie AM44 FFG housing. I used two ultra thin shims between AM43 and AM42 and the problem was solved.
