Needed a 1 inch clutch slave and found a Triumph 2000 one at a great price.

Time to sort out the front sway-bar and shocks.

Disassembled the sway-bar and started cleaning and painting.

A lot of painted parts hanging out to dry…

Had some D bushes arrive from Rare Spares in Oz and some doughnuts arrive from Basis in NZ.

The standard HR Holden sway-bar is mounted to the chassis rails with D bushes and dropper rods to the lower suspension A arms. Because Rigamortices chassis rails were closer together and the radiator shroud was in the way I’d mounted the sway-bar to the bottom A arms and dropped the D bushes to be below the chassis.

Dug out the new shocks I’d had in storage for a few years….
