Why did you take it to bits again? or did I miss that bit?

Shocking update ....






Next on my list is to upgrade the suspension.

Eibach Pro Springs all round ...

Image

Bilstein shocks for the Front ...

Image

Koni Adjustables for the Rear ...

Image

And my OCD tells me they had to be changed to the same colour as everything else as yellow just wouldnt go ... :lol:

Image

Rear subframe stripped ...

Image

All sandblasted up ...

Image

And back from the powdercoaters looking much better. The back plates are new but eveything else has come up really well ...

Image

Nearly all the new bushes and bearings have arrived, just waiting for a few more bits before it can go back together. Parts are getting much harder to source so definately worth ordering bits in advance as I have had to order bits from both Germany and Aus ...

Image

Fronts now off and stripped ready to be cleaned up ...

Image

As usual theres nothing like leaving it to the last minute but with Trax only two weeks away im pushing things to have it all back by then. Thanks to v6 Steve though for the parts that have been sent out :obscene-drinkingbeer: gonna be a busy couple of weeks

After a mad few weeks I dont seem to have made any measurable progress but things are all coming together. Few more bits back from the powdercoaters...

Image

And everything else all painted up ready to be fitted, heres the diff...

Image

And with less than a week before Trax my suspension currently looks like this...

Image

Gonna be another busy week but as it stands Trax is looking just a little out of the question, will see how things go back together.
