Late night stripping!

I don't usually do late night spannering (unless its pre-RBRR emergency!) but having the rear suspension on the floor was too much of a temptation. Spent a happy hour stripping it down so that it can be dropped off at to be shot blasted and powder coated on the way to work in the morning.
Took longer than expected! So many things to come off (brake pipe clips, rubber bungs, trailing arm bushes, exhaust mounts etc) but its all done and in the boot of the car now.
 Diff nosepiece is winging its way to Mr Witor to be......... ahem...... "Witorised" ! Blasted, strengthened, new bearings and seals and a Stag flange to be fitted. By the time that comes back the suspension should be back from the powder coaters. Diff needs to go next and driveshafts need to go to Earlparts for refurb.
