Front spring mount and brake assembly

Almost forgot.

Fitting the car with Hartford Dampers means that the mountings that connect the front suspension leaf springs to the entire front axle no longer fit as they the too short. Now how to make a square U shape bolt… talking to learned council across the road, it was quite common to do away with those original mountings and use 2 bolts through a piece of 5mm flat bar. Oh thats so much easier to manufacture so thats what i did. And to make them a little more pretty, I rounded the ends of the flat bar off. Slightly over engineering but a period solution. Perfect.
