Talbot Lago T26 grand prix car front suspension upright. Our customer is building a replica of a T26 Talbot Lago grand prix car. We scanned an original front suspension upright and generated a cad model. Machining allowance was added to the component in such a way that the part was non handed. From this we designed a wax injection tool for investment casting. The tool was CNC machined from aluminium billet. The uprights were cast in a high strength aircraft spec stainless steel, xrayed and crack tested before machining. The non handed casting could then be machined for left hand and right hand applications. These parts are available to buy please enquire for price and availability.
|This component is a torsion bar adjuster fitted to the front suspension of a 1950’s Jaguar C-type sports car. The parts are being re-manufactured for very accurate replica cars.|
|The raw material specified for this component is EN24 for its mechanical strength and good elongation. The material is very difficult to machine. It can only be bought in round bar stock. The blanks were faced to size in a lathe.|
