Got back from my 'Jet guy with a stack of new goodies. Everything turned out awesome.
Started some strut mockup... see how things fit.
Busted out the drill press and countersunk the holes for the bag mount to use flat sockethead screws (gotta make every mm count)
Had to countersink the bag a little so the screws would tighten down!
Also using flat socket heads on the strut cap. These will be tack in place for easy mounting.
Using standard socket head on the bottom. This work perfectly to lock the bag into the adjustment rings and keep it from spinning.
Upper bag mount will have a pipe here (size to be just enough to clear everything)
As you can see, if I run the numbers correctly, I should be able to calculate for strut bearing sag and close this gap up really tight and still have full function. (top plate is the lower mounting flange for the strut bearing cap.
More to come! Next episode- Getting the Coupe back in the garage, mock this up and see where we're at!
