I'm back!

I'm back!!...... did you all miss me?....... no, didn't think so!

Had a bit of time off from the car, spent my time doing jobs round the house, going on holiday to France in the caravan and various other bits and pieces that just took up all my time........ but, back to the job in hand now!
Masked and shutzed the last wheel arch. What a messy job, I@ll be glad when this is done! Just the floor pans to do now!
 The rack was rebuilt thanks to EJ Wards. Being as it was a low mileage car I wanted my rack rebuilt rather than exchanged so it took a little longer than usual. Quick coat of paint and its as good as new.
 All the front suspension is now back from the powder coaters. I borrowed Brian's press and pressed the new bottom ball joints into the lower arms and fitted the new polybushes.
 The front crossmember, now powder coated, needed some minor assembly. Rubber bump stops to be refitted and new steering rack bushes. These are the only bushes on the car that are not Poly. I don't like the poly bushes in the rack, I find it gives too much "kick" to the steering, so standard rubber bushes are in there now.
 Then, polished up and refitted the gutter trims on the offside, and 2 of the door trims before it was time for dinner. Not bad for about 4 hours work this afternoon!
