Front came up and the rear went down...
Steering box fitted... centralised the box... narrowed the steering arms.. fitted the front shocks.. Very Happy

Oh and dropped the arse a couple splines afro

And plopped the motor in as well..



It's taken me over a month just to fit a beam, track rods and shocks - how come you've done all that in a day, plus loads more?! Suspect

Yeah carl you probably right about puting them in the bin but mine went on the shelf so i have them 'in stock'.. Don't know why though Rolling Eyes

Steve the rear lights that got painted with the car are the pre 67 style lights not the 70's tombstones which is what should be fitted with europa bumpers, so we're gonna sort some bumpers and see what they look like together.....

Eddie are you getting commission from Spence???????????

Cheers dan.. The seats are brand new honda civic/crk seats and cam in the car they'll soon be in the bin cos as you can see frizz can't see over the bonnet.. lol! lol!

Here we go...

The arse came up 1 spline... Didn't make much difference.. Rolling Eyes

72 bug had a little tickle from the stick - Page 4 DSC00045


So it came up another spline.. affraid affraid And that made a BIG difference.. Shocked

72 bug had a little tickle from the stick - Page 4 DSC00046


It'll do for now though... Remember theres no interior, tinware or engine ancillaries and it's not settled down.. Rolling Eyes .. I'm sure it'll be back down another spline ONCE it's all back together...

And your engine bay fills up with water .... I know! No

But that wouldn't worry Scoops cos he hates to take his bug out when it rains & it lives in a nice cosy dry garage tongue lol!

Hello to you sunny

It would be nice to have that motor but i think for now i will stick to something a bit smaller....

How are things with you anyway????
