Thanks guys :smt003

Been putting in some serious hours these last 2 weeks and especially this week. It all went a bit Pear Shaped when I noticed the NEW Ball joint boots had split open so I had to completly strip down the front suspension and renew them all. Turns out that they were NOS (New Old Stock) and the rubber had perrished :smt013
Next problem was the front brakes locked on and calipers stuck so that all needed sorting out.
Then the engine wouldn't idle so spent 2 days sorting that out. But it now runs great so that's a result.

Right.... Prepped and painted front bumper and fitted Registration plate

Gave the sliding door another flash over with paint and fitted glass with new seal.

Got the pasenger seat fitted
