Sponsor: RN12 Auto

Big thanks to RN12 auto for their gift of driveshafts and hubs from a 1999 ford fiesta zetec. Hanging above their sales counter are spare exhausts for Audi R8 and Ferrari Modena... not your average breakers yard.

Rear Axle & Motor Frame - final version

The final rear subframe housing the motor, belt drive, and brakes. The motor is not in this picture but will be attached as per the previous blog posts; as you can see the lower part that takes the motor and differential is still the same part, only the top structure is new. Mounting is directly metal on metal, possibly with some spacers, but no rubber mounts are necessary since no vibration is expected.
