Mr Pushrod needed a front suspension mount for his Predator XT restoration and as they aren't available any more (or anywhere) I made one for him.

I'm pleased how it came out so just putting it up here. The only bad part was I had to cut the slots freehand so they look untidy, at least you can't see them when it's on the buggy.

Nice work - looks very neat to me! What tools do you use? Whenever I try something like this, nothing comes out in the right place...

Jeroen it's for an XT, not an XK5. The chassis (and therefore the front end) are different and aren't interchangeable. Fibre-Lyte never made one for the XT.

I use a pillar drill for the holes, a powered scroll saw for freehand cutting and sandpaper glued to acrylic strips for finishing rather than a file. For something like this I have a home made profile copying milling setup that allows me to machine a copy of any grp part, I made it to copy T pieces for 1/12th scale cars.
