So I got my hands on a second hand allspeed frame with bottom arms so great no wrong arms and he drill out bolt holes bigger to try and fit them so I'm fitting my own arms
So lucky he drill them out the same size as a mini set arm so I will put some pictures of how I'm going to do it

So looking at mini bottom arms and tie bars for me allspeed frame not going to buy allspeed one as the last owner of frame drill out mounting holes big
So I have a pair of adjustable bottom arms all ready so am just testing a few ideas so far I was thinking of using a bottom arm pin that fits throw mounting point them I took a suspension bolt spacer and drill out and cut down to 10mm fitted them in works very well will have spacer made from a shop local to me
PS I no the bottom arm needs to go on opposite sideAttached File  IMG_1417.JPG   63.37K   0 downloads

Looking good there Rich, lots of new panels going in there. How come you're going with the wide arches? personal preference? you also have come across the snag of the allspeed frames there too. Its the Gillette razor problem, frame itself if a very good price it's the ancillaries that are costly!

Hi Lawrence
On the wide arches I just love the lookout them on the minibut it's not everybody cup of tea
Allspeed subframe are great price but the rest of the parts prices are a joke.I will be using allspeed drive shafts but I will use what came off the old subframe but I did get it second hand and the last owner drill out holes bigger
