I have had to re-paint the n/s/door as there must have been some damp in the filler , which had some very slight bubles in the area. so i cleaned all the filler away from that area, sanded it back, blasted it and treated the area with metal ready.

i have also fitted the engine in and played with the suspension.

just a couple of pics after a bit of cleaning.

Sorry to hear about the door dude.

I have been quite busy over last few days, narrowed the front beam 4" , by chopping 6" out the middle, adding 2 sway aways, and re-locating beam mounting brackets to correct position, , converting damper mount from l/h, drive to r/h drive. Beam has standard bearings fitted so no urethane bushes.

Now off to get powder coated with other bits.






pics to follow as never had camera at time.

how easy/dificult is it to narrow the beem dude Very Happy
