It's been a while since I've posted updates. The car is back from the body repair and spraying. The wiring loom is in after a cleanup, repair where needed and wrap with loom tape. The rebuilt front subframe is fitted and I'm busy rebuilding the rear.

I will also be fitting new brake lines and fuel line under the car so probably need to drop the front subframe slightly to remove old lines and fit new ones. I decided to go with bundy tubing instead of the copper nickel purely because the bundy is much cheaper and also it's what was used originally. I am going to be changing the diagonal split brake layout to a front/rear split with a pressure regulator valve to the rear and 5/8 wheel cylinders. I'll be keeping my black tag dual master but having it resleeved with stainless steel.

Other than that, I've just cleaned up and fitted tail lights and front light housings.

It's coming together slowly but we're getting there.

I decided on bilstein gas shocks which is arriving next week and also the MS 2 core aluminium radiator.

I think once the rear subframe is in and the brakes done, the rest will be quicker and easier.

I'll post some pics later

I've removed the rear subframe cleaned it up and resprayed it. Getting all the parts ready for the subframe rebuild. After checking the radius arm shafts and bushes and bearings I realised it's best to replace it. So getting the repair kit and having it fitted at a local engineer. That'll take weeks before I get the parts so this subframe is going to be out for a while... 

 

I will in the meantime work on rebuilding the brake master cylinder and replace all the brake lines.
