Default Innocenti i4 (Austin 1100/1300) VVC

Hey there,

it is not, that i got bored, but a customer had a great 1964 Innocenti i4 in his garage... okay, now its mine

Okay, it is bone stock, original non modified... untill now!







Ooookay here we go:











Got rid of the old lump.



I wanted to bolt in the whole mgf package...



First of all, changing vom RWD to FWD





Not even close...



To prevent some headaches, i took my frame rig and startet over with some K-Series Frame Fragments.



That works better!



Frame is aligned and bolted to the upper brackets. It got towers for my springs and the Gearbox is already mounted.



Okay, the 13" ATS 7" wide wheel is not an option.
I ordered some steel wheels in 5,5"x14" with pdc 4x100 and ET40.
They will fit straight forward under the wings.
The flanges are rebored from 4x 95,25 to 4x100.

The whole action took 2 days until now.

More to come.

Cheers Olli

Steering collumn



Brake drum ready to be reduced in weight and to become a flange for the disc brake

















Re fitting the panel.



Dropped the subframe for the finishing.

Love the use of brake drum into a flange. Great idea and some nice fabrication.

@ andy, somehow I needed to swap to discbrake on the rear, and as i saw that the drums are the flanges (with bearing) there was only one way.
The Metro flanges didn´t fit, so i had to machine something.

I need to install some shockabsorbers. That will be fun: no mountings on the car and no mounts on the rear radius arms, not a real big deal, but need to insert tubes where the shocks will fit inside. would be the fastest way to get around this.
Drilling and taping the rear radius arm axle to get a shock mount is the route i will choose.

cheers



cheers

Actually it looks great on the MGF spares wheels! I would be tempted to fit them along with some lower profile tyres.
