With the wheel project having achieved all which was required and is now able to tick-over as and when, attention is now slowly being concentrated on the mass of projects on the go.

The latest car back on the table is the Delage 2LCV, started last year, but partially shelved due to other commitments.

A recent burst of enthusiasm saw the front axle completed in prototype form.

The axle is in steel, the drums, hubs and backplates are in aluminium.

The 'brake drums' are mounted on ball bearings which in turn are mounted on hubs attached to the streering knuckles, which are etched stainless steel.


The internals are pretty closely packed with minimal clearances, but all semms to have worked out pretty well. The rear axle is well on its way, whilst the chassis has recently been started.
