I have cleaned up the housing, that was seriously dirty, 9 cans of degreasor and 2 of brake cleaner and a hammer and chissel to get the caked of mud and oil. but its clean and primed now waiting for a spray over the weekend.
Im running heavy leaf packs, I am using the two long origional springs and the rest from a set of old man emus. I think there are 7 on the front and 9 on the rear, I like a tough bone jarring ride!
Things are comming together really well Im really surprised how its going so well!
I got the origional front shock mounts of yesterday and the steering box off this mourning, I cleaned the front 1/4 chassis with a wire brush and is now soaking in rust converter.
If I did it again I would have been more sure of myself and removed the tub off first and done the chassis in one go, but hay thats for next time.
THAT's going to be rough!
