Spent the day modifying the spring perches on my gasser to make them acceot different U bolts. The Speedway axles come with a square U bolt that bolts the weld on perch to the spring. I wanted U bolts that sandwich the axle, perch, and springs with a spring plate on top. Just seemed much stronger to my thinking.
Problem was the mounting holes were under the axle, so I had to elongate them about 1/4" to get the new U bolts in. Took a couple hours of grinding on the 8 holes to get the U bolt to fit, but it inally went in.

Then after arguing with a guy the other day about what kind of car it was, I had the sign guy add something to the trunk lid. Amazing that someone would argue with the car's owner about what kind of car it was? But he wasn't the first to think it was an Anglia!
