Looking good. What are your plans for it? Are you keeping it as a hard top 'n' sides?

RE Wrapping the springs in pollyethene , is this something you have done before does it work? Thinking i might do mine with Denso tape but can't decide if it is a good idea or if it will end up holding water in?

Chassis looks good :thumbs:

I can't imagine the polythene surviving well once you start driving it.

Hey up, the polythene is just there to protect the springs whilst the rest of the vehicle is restored. Im thinking about using denso tape as well since my old man told me about it, sounds like a good idea.
Has anyone else done this if so how did it work?

Right I've got a little done after work today, got the gearbox mountings took apart and sand blasted, primed ready to fit new rubber mounting also got the clutch slave cylinder bracket blasted and primed.

Hello folks,

I've got the gearbox stripped and cleaned, whoever put it together last time loved their instant gasket or as between the bellhousing and the gearbox casing, not putting gasket's on at all  :WTF also the previous owner clearly didnt like oil as there wasnt any in the main gearbox casing  :banghead

So I need both front and rear layshaft bearings and a gasket set















































It's all good fun

More picces as promised  :smile1













This locating peg was snapped and the thrust washer that goes against the splines was on the wrong side of the distance piece , so it's assembled wrong at some point in it's life  :WTF  scary

Getting the rest of me bit's tomorrow so I can start the rebuild.

Well today, been fun, interesting or down right bloody weird, depends on your point of view. It seem I've got a series 3 main gear cluster with a 1st & 2nd syncro in a 2a main casing.

in other words a full syncro box weyhey ;D, might sound daft to some of you guys but it took some figuring out for me. so my brain is totally fried at the mo.
