Hi,
This is the new addition to our family. Beautiful aint it!



Anyway, to make a long story short. This ol girl caught a light in our garage. Crying or Very sad Ashes to ashes and dubs to the sand blasters.



The shit side of it is waiting to get back in it, but the benefit is the playtime. and the truth that gets reveled from sand blasting. Lucky for us the metal work is minimum and not rot related.

Fresh Metal!

I will keep y'all posted.

P.S. I am afraid of heights and was wondering if anyone attempted front beam mods using CSP serrated type adjusters, via removing the center pin housing?

A sad tale with a happy ending.... Good news.
As for the adjusters.... Never used the CSP ones, but have used the Munster Garage ones.... Fitted the same way. Work the same way.

I like the late Bays, but I spose they're getn on a bit now too (either that or I am........NAH!!!).

I beg to differ about the ride height though. I can't understand all these blokes slamming their rides, makes you much closer to the ants and bugs and spiders and snakes, you're all mad.......... Shocked

Ok, with those type of adjusters did you follow a set of written instructions? If so, which ones? I allways had my mates do it back home. Never had the opurtunity to modify a beam myself.

Yes, we were very lucky in the fact that we were home when she decided to go up in flames. Word to the wise, if your going to park it for a couple of weeks or more, disconnect the battery! I had to feel around for the door handle and ebrake (couldnt see anything) to roll it out of the garage before it took our new Rav 4 and 6 month old house with it. It was a hairy day, but a blessing in disguise.

Why modify a cars suspension? When you drive a stock bus accoss the nulibore and the machine is rocking like a boat and your using all your might to hold the road, the desicion for wider tyres and a tighter suspension becomes clear. Also, there is not any need for my van to be stock height as I will not drive it off road. Tried it once in a toyota camper and it sunk in the sand.

First on the job list is to get, what was a melted/burnt mess of an engine completely dismantled, case split, tolerances checked, all bits bathed in acid and bead blast heads. Then conrods, pistons, pressure plate & flywheel are on the scales.

Ok, back on the job. Got some mago green 2 pac. It's not period correct, but this is as close to 1958 as I am willing to get at the moment.








By the way, this guy that blasted and painted my wheels didn't bother to put grease on the tyres before he painted. Evil or Very Mad can someone advise me on how to get this shit off?
Thanks

Have been putting the (WCM) rubbers in this week. I chose WCM because I grew up using them and never had any issues with their rubber until I installed the bazillion door seal this time. Everything else has the hologram stickers that state "made in USA", or German made apart from the door seals. Sucks as I need to modify them. Should have bought from Stefan. I would have saved a fair quid and probably got the same quality. Here comes the "I told you so", haha. Hope you have my back on the next build Stefan?
