Done this today, plates on the top are way over size, but thats to allow for corrugated floor, should have enough contact for cert, just gotta trim the long bit off and some paint maybe tomorrow... lost motivation and funds for a while, hope to button up all the loose ends ... at least get to some progress soon

Not much to report other than did a lot of small things, old leaky hoses fixed, coolant resiviour mounted in only available space, better radiator brackets, test drives/skids (on indusrtial area roads), and further cert tests, still got some brake and reverse lights to sort, and some bushings but getting close!

Replaced the worn out spring eye bushes, the shackles look to be replaced already...

Lot tighter now, greased up and installed, should help the rear end a lot...20220521_114106.thumb.jpg.9aa8b1ebcb4e3c098a6b3c89be56a1ea.jpg20220521_113957.thumb.jpg.54e86151e46ac3c4ab2e22881e8edcbf.jpg20220521_114002.thumb.jpg.03c6acdd472a09c46f3c93d4d38be7c8.jpg20220521_114104.thumb.jpg.785165b9e69cb6d5d365fbba82d1b1ac.jpg20220522_093314.thumb.jpg.15a7b8ea13ccf167d3fb4173db48342b.jpgready for paint today hopefully if it warms up, in hindsight should have removed trim bit, painted this when i painted the front... gives me a chance to do another coat on light surrounds though

Converted the blown sealed lights to h4, replacable bulbs, got these ignite ones for $100 or so with bulbs, pretty good deal really, they work fine, and that almost sums up everything i need to do before cert...

Want to do some test driving and long distance drives to test everything is reliable...

If anyone has a h190 diff head lying around that i can weld, or knows what lsd centers are able to fit in casing... let me know, having a hard time finding anything ...

Some hoses that are oil resistant for oil breather and blow off valve return, from safety blackwoods, and its driving good now, noticed steering wheels on the piss a little and speedos out by 20ks... maybe needs a better radiator cap, other than that it's ready for some extended driving ...
