As a bit of a birthday present to the owner of car 1 lots of parts have now been ordered for the car which should allow for a big jump in the progress.
As of writing, the rear hub bearings have been replaced and fitted back to the car, new UJ’s have been fitted to the rear prop, the hand brake drum has been skimmed ready for refitting. and brake overhaul kits are standing by ready to be fitted.
The pile of purchased goods also contains:
- 4 x Shock Absorber
- Bearing kits for both axles
- Brake drums for both axles
- Brake overhaul kits including cylinders, springs and shoes
- Brake pedal assembly
- Full exhaust system & mounts
- Floor supports for the tub
- Diff pinion oil seals
- Speedo cable
- Braided brake hoses
- Tank to lift pump fuel pipe
- wiring loom has been ordered from autosparks.co.uk
Other progress made recently includes painting of the windscreens surround, we have gone for black on this to try and tone down the green a bit. and just to check we popped the other bits of the body on to see the shape of things to come.
We have also made up 2 repairs for the rear 1/4 panels of the tub, the bottoms of them have corroded so we have made up some repairs based on the templates for car 2.
So busy times ahead working on the car hopefully will have it further along in no time.
