Nice to see some more progress :D

That steering carrier is interesting, I'm a long way off but I think I will have problems in that area also.

Not updated this in ages, not because I've been doing nothing, just not bothered updating the build thread.

Got some body panels temp fitted to check clearances

Built a battery bay at the bottom of the passenger footwell. Also houses the ecu. accessed via a hinged panel in the engine bay (not shown)

Image

Engine and box have come out to be cleaned up, painted and checked over with new seals etc.

This shows the de-oxidising gel removing the rust from the block. Awesome stuff and very very effective

Image

Bought myself a zinc plating kit so have been restoring all sorts of parts then wrapping them up ready for final build later on.

Here's the plating tank

Image

Nuts, bolts etc post plating and yellow/gold passivate

Image

Image

Hub carriers were done in clear passivate as were the alternator brackets and bolts

Image

Image

Also, stripped and rebuilt the rear prop shafts, and hubs which were all plated and look brand new again.

Fantastic progress Ste. I like the idea of plating small batches of brackets and bolts as you go because you never sure of what your using till its done.
