    Update time

    RARB powdercoated red:

    Lower control arms re-bushed with Ralliart and OEM bushes:

    Upper control arms replaced due to a crack, to protect them I painted them silver and gave them a coat of lacquer:

    Brand new drop links and nuts, also painted silver with hammerite and lacquered.

    Assist links cleaned up, repainted and new ball joint nuts. I would have replaced the bushes unfortunately you can't get new bushes alone, you have to replace the whole link which just wasn't necessary, looking much better anyway Click here to enlarge

    Brake discs cleaned of rust and painted:

    Then since there was nothing left bolted to the crossmember I thought that may as well come off and get some TLC:

    Then the moustache bar (diff mount) was off, I thought that could join club clean. Ralliart bushes coming:

    Fuel filler neck is a mess, was originally going to have it powdercoated but made the choice to replace now, new one will be here on Tuesday:

    Driveshafts painted:

    Every nut, bolt, washer and screw that's been removed has been zinc plated ready to get re-fitted, kudos to the guys who replace them all, they're f**king expensive and easy to spend hundreds on fasteners alone. I want to use the car and not be so scared of getting it dirty I never drive it so, plus theres nothing actually wrong with them (Stiff nuts were replaced cause I smashed the s**t out of them to split the ball joints) So plating it was.

    Old vs new of fuel filler pipe:

    Diff mount bushes pressed in, with an old vs new for comparison between the OEM and Ralliart bushes.

    And lastly the callipers. I could have sworn I took a load of before pictures before I sent them away, but alas, I can't find any, so I only have this one unfortunately. However it gives you a pretty good idea of the state they were in:

    Sent them to Godspeed Brakes, couldn't be happier with the service/quality of work. 100% would recommend them to anyone!

    I was hoping to put everything, or mostly everything back on this weekend but unfortunately the diff mount bolts aren't back from plating Click here to enlarge
