New goodies

Jul 11, 2009 update on ditchdigger's 1971 Fiat 850 Berlina

When swapped to discs up front it was with the 68 and earlier units. Rotors for the early brakes (if you can find them) can run around $100 each. Screw that! Rotors for later units are under $15 each

I managed to find the 69 and up bits and while I was refurbing the kingpin bushings I went ahead and modded the spindles for more camber and to lower the front 1 7/8” . This way I can install the stock spring perch and regain suspension travel. I went ahead and made new upper bushings out of delrin while I was at it.
