Good day Sunday on TET.
Finished stone chip on under side of car. Was going to do the box sections ect with the same stuff but the gun did not want to play so will do later with wax-oil.
Fortunately I had the old brake/fuel lines to use as a pattern so set about making the new CUPRO lines. I was going to go all stainless but getting the conversion fittings made it a nightmare so went with the standard lines, there will be plenty of S/S in the engine bay where you can see them.
Next was fitting the rear subframe.
Being someone else's failed restoration project that I got as a box of bits there are subtle clues to where there are problems. With the body works if there was a new replacement panel for a part of the car that was there then their is a problem. Eg a new heal board when the original was already repaired, that was not centred and the measurement between the fixing points was 5mm to short.
the second clue I look for is missing bolts. If there is missing bolts this usually means it don't fit or the threads are Knackered.
In the case of the driver radius arm outer bracket there was two bolts missing and they would not align up. A little head scratching later and a medium size lump hammer to straighten the inner radius fixing point it all fits.
Now it was time to get off the rotating stands which have been a life saver but take up a lot of room.
Next to remove the stand brackets and the support frames from inside the car.ready to work on the body ready for paint.
