A bit of a mod on the rear bumper, the bumper corners tend to stick out a country mile so need a cut and shut job, they wont be chromed so no probs there.

I was going for rubber bushes but as my works are agents for super pro i managed to get Poly bushes at a good price plus i am thinking ahead for air ride at a later date.
Suspension components are now powder coated so spent some time fitting them.
easy to fit just push in.


These are easily fitted with a press but you need to use a very good fit sleeve pressing on the steel part of the bush

Well i've had the call and the car has now gone to the paint shop, not really sure when it will be done but ideally back home before winter.

i'm fortunate that a friend is doing the bodywork/paint on the car and is happy for me to jolly it along, so thought i'd crack on and strip off the paint,
