    .The Audi A6 Steering Column and the Sketchup version below.

    .The Column in the car



    I've Started working on the back of the car, I have to decide whether to have the radiators up front (1997 version) or in the quarter panels (1998 version). There are 2 intercoolers that also have to squeeze in there. The cooler in the pic below appears to be an engine oil cooler.

      Looking good Vinny! Wouldn't it be nice if the physical build could be as fast as the virtual build

        Yeah, its like drawing with markers in a coloring book, kinda gratifying. Over this past weekend I put 8 hours into the TR doing inner sheet metal work ,no one will ever see it when its together. Ah the ups and down of it all. Lol !!

              Looking good Vinny;

              Are you going to add in additional levels for the suspension to sit at proper ride height off the side of the table as well? I was thinking of doing the same kind of table when I get to my Countach. Then i can set up the hubs at proper ride height and then can measure everything from there as well.

              Looking good and enjoying the updates.

                Hey Don, the corvette suspension is in the CAD model at stock height mounting points and stock geometry. Right now there no need to mount the hubs on brackets like others have done. The plan is to use the top of the chassis table datum to set the bottom of the car’s frame as the lowest point on the chassis, which will be the cockpit floor. In XYZ coordinates it represents Z-O. Both front and rear susp cradles are above the floor and will sit on spacer plates while the chassis is laid out and welded together . Hope I explained the right . Thanks for following along , -Vince
