Front lower wishbone buildup

Fitting the GD lower wishbone bracket to the wishbone seemed like a nice quick job. I layed out everything needed, took the obligatory picture …


and did a trial fit, only to find out the bracket would not fit. (both of them in fact). In the end I had to put the wishbones under the press and squeeze it a bit to be able to get the bolts in. Let's call it an 'engineering fit'.

And the finished article:


I probably should have painted the other holes which are not used; I did not realise it at the time.

Here's also a detail of the Nord-Lock washers I'm using. As a rule of thumb I'm adding around 20% to the specified torque numbers in the jaguar manual. With the nordlock-washers that should lead to about the same bolt tension.
