Had a good 4hrs at it today, fuel tank removed, subframe off and actually surprised that apart from one small hole in the boot spare wheel area it’s not too bad.
Next job is to strip the rear subframe and rear arms for shot blasting and powder coating.
Quick question, can you buy the cups that the springs sit in on the subframe? Badly corroded so not sure they’ll survive shot blasting.
Done myself a bit of a shopping list (already have a new hub/wheel bearing, hoses to callipers, new exhaust etc)
Rear bump stop x2
Rear sub frame brake flexi x2
Wheel bearing rear x1
Rear brake callipers x2
Hand brake cables x2
Brake Compensator x1
Rear arm repair kit x2
Rear subframe bushes - set of 4
Brake pipes (various)
Selection of stainless bolts
Anything I’ve missed?
Also for the rear subframe bushes I’m assuming I’ll need to press them out?
All done with axle stands….living life on the edge
