Nuts for the Back Suspension Arms. Duroplast is Glued to the Doors

Back Suspension Arms

While installing the back suspension arms, one of the threads (front left, where i cut the bolt while disassembling) had no force to support the click of the torque wrench (~112 Nm) and i had to reinforce all the 4 mounting points with spring washers and nuts.

I could not find M12 x 1.5 and i decided to search in eBay. The majority of the results were “rim lug nut”, so i went directly to the tires department in Canadian Tire and bought 4 open wheel nuts.

I removed the pieces of the circle that go outside of the hex, added a spring washer and pointed the conical side up.

I reinforced the back seat stands, because i cut material to open an access to the front mounting points. Now i can rustproof the inner side of the all 4 mounting points of the back suspension.

Duroplast to the Doors

Today i started to glue the duroplast panels. First i glued the doors. It went very well.

Inside – Up.
Inside – Side.

On the next picture is visible a draining hole. They have to be open (cleaned).

The penetration is very good.

Inside – Down.
Drain hold outside.

I used rivets and aluminum washers to attach the down side of the doors.

There is a little hole on the front side of the door. I sealed it.

Materials
