    Rear subframe, suspension, brakes, diff and driveshafts now completely refurbed and back together. All that remains of that job is to refit the exhaust heat shield and the exhaust, connect up the tank wiring, throw in a couple of gallons of diesel and see if I can get it running. All rear brake pipes also replaced.

    Parts list to date:

    1 s/h rear subframe
    1 s/h n/s trailing arm
    1 s/h driveshaft
    1 s/h diesel tank and primer pump


    New Parts

    10 rear suspension bushes
    2 rear anti roll bar bushes
    2 rear discs and set of pads
    4 rear flexible brake hoses

    Having made that parts list I'm now absolutely certain that I'm raving mad - have to keep telling myself it'll all be worth it.

    Finally its running and back on its legs. A few niggles but it sounds sweet. It was as rough as and old dog and smoked like hell for the first 10 mins whilst it burned out the residue of whatever the idiot of a previous owner tried to run it on but its fine now (niggles apart). Now on to the front end.

    Sounds like quite a list there - keep the updates coming though.
