Looking forward to the rebuild process and in what order...

 

Me to..will start running fuel and brake lines..followed by the steering rack / pedal box then column..i will then start on subframes and associated suspension/brakes..etc..i might fit the odd pretty  bit along the way just for a treat then eventually fit the engine and continue with all ancillaries around it..wiring then follow with fuel tank lights interior etc..sounds simple but no doubt issues will arise..

Thanks..crazy thing is i do have use of a trailer from work which i originally delivered the van with ..weather forecast is also iffy here on friday so the van idea seemed the way to go..i will make sure its tied down well and has plenty of padding..i will be driving so can take it easy on the 10 mile journey home..

Cheers....hopefully collection should be ok..ive got plenty of foam to pad any vulnerable areas..once its in the van it should stay pretty stable as i will anchor it to the floor and commence clenching mode on the way home ;-)

Thanks @minimissions i will make sure the rest of the build stays at this standard ..i have a few unusual bits to fit yet so these should make it a tad different to the norm.. :highfive:
