Control Arm Fabrication

With the chassis out for welding the team has begun working on the suspension components. Jigs for the upper and lower control arms for the front and rear have been built. The team is in the process of fitting all of the members together. Once the members are fit the team will send some of the components to George Wohlrab who runs the machine shop on campus to be drilled and tapped. The goal is to have the suspension components together by early next week.
