Recommended Posts

That,s looking good everyone on the site likes to follow a project. When it is completed buy a ten or fifteen litres of Waxoyl and pump generous amounts into the box sections and underneath.

Thank you for the information 242!

Unfortunately not much developments have taken place with my car. I cant get my hands on the right hand side longitudinal rear chassis leg (or whatever its called). Left one could be ordered still i think, but I asked the shops that Greg linked here for the right hand side - not available.

Im still thinking which way to go, the left hand side part on my car could be saved i think, its definately better than the one on the right, but if im supposed to build the right hand side from scratch on my own, then theres not much point on spending any money for the other side.

Nice inner arch.  Did you manage to source some inner chassis legs?

Unfortunately no, I'm just going to try and reproduce those myself aswell. I hope i will manage, thicker sheetmetal is tougher to form.

I was told that Opel Vectra (MK3 Cavalier) shares its whole underside with MK2, so I should have been looking for those bits aswell. Right now I don't even care, seems more interesting to try and reproduce the longitudinal members myself. 

Some pictures too, winter is giving up slowly.

I have managed to source a set of Irmscher wheels for this car. I've wanted these for a long time now and they were an absolute steal. Unfortunately i dont have centercaps, but hoping to find those aswell.

The Cavalier/Vectra A shares their underbody with the Astra F. The Cavalier/Ascona C are different.

That is special......excellent.....I guess you have left off the axle pivot to align that with another piece of fabrication work onto this?  Do you have the other side to line it up with?  We did these one at a time on my LX to keep the axle as straight as possible (by keeping 1 reference point on the car).  Also my dad made a spacer for it to allow fitment without using a heavy axle to check.

Top layer welded on. Effectively it is pretty much the same as the one under it, which was shown on previous pictures, just a tiny bit larger in every measure.

Other side needs same treatment, but axle pivot for this side needs to be done first. I don't think I'll ever be able to get these 100% correct and true...
