Reply to "Building a Gr4 replica"

Continued re-doing earlier bad and incorrect repairs. Here the rear suspension uprights.

I purchased repair pieces from a US-vendor - and sorry to say, I cannot recommend that. These pieces are not right, way too narrow to fit the suspension tubes meaning that they have to be reworked to fit.

Decided to repair them, instead of reproducing them completely. Had to widen them about and inch to fit, and to make them look correctly like the original structure.

Here the difference in tube Width after welding on side of the upright
