    Cool explanation and video as well. What program are you using?
    I have used Autodesk Inventor in the past, and years later tried to teach myself Solidworks but I got lazy. Then at my last job I taught myself to used Risa 3D which was a structural design software but you can animate it just the same to see the stress areas, bending moments, deflections...

    I'm using SolidWorks. I actually found it quite intuitive compared to ProE and the little bit of Inventor I tried.

    I've done some stress analysis on Inventor and it was alright, I do have a lot of experience with Inventor but I'm probably pretty rusty now, but I'd love to do it for a living

    Great thread, I'll definitely enjoy watching this come together over time. Always appreciate when I can come into a thread with a car that I have no vested interest in and leave with takeaway ideas for my own car, if only in theory.

    Lol, I agree. I love any well designed and executed project log regardless of whether I would ever see myself in the vehicle or not. I know I'm most likely alone in the Dodge Shadow love category.


    Well, I've updated post 16 to reflect proper braking loads. I also applied them a bit differently to be in my opinion more realistic. Everything still looks decent though I'd like to spend some time making the caliper mount a bit more rigid. It is strong enough but it moves more than I would like on its own. This will most likely change once a disc in in the mix but I'd like to stiffen it up none the less. I know from experience that brake movement, even if minor, can cause all sorts of havoc.

    I've been making at least a little bit of progress this last month. I finally got it back into the garage to start operation front chop. Before I can complete the task a couple of small things needed to be worked out. The first was to mark the wheel centers so I can make sure everything lines up when I construct the new front end. When I made the assembly rack I set the car 6.5" above the top surface which was so I can use 2x4 steel to set the 4.5" ride height. For the wheel centers I used a piece of 2x4 steel 74" across which will also be the the new track width. This gives an 8.4" increase in track width from the stock 57.6" to 64". I felt this was a good gain while still not making the car look stupid.....well at least I hope, I still haven't modeled up any body work. I also found a good use for all the control arm tubes I made a mistake on. They work great to hold up the old control arms at ride height when I take the wheels off.

    The first look at the new track width.





    Setting the ride height to measure the wheel centers.





    Locking in the wheel centers.









    Goodbye Mr. K-frame and Macpherson strut suspension. We had some good times together but it's time to move on.

    Ya, I'm still in the TD game, if not I would have picked a more logical platform.
