not got me springs on the front yet, but had a runout to work init today, so last weekend we took it to a show, and I did spend a couple of hours giving it a good scrub up and it looks pretty good, so I needed fuel this morning, just put the nozzle back in the pump, then this old timer comes over, starts talking to me about the van, not had that for a few years, turns out he's got a minty mk3 jubilee with big n little wolfrace slot mags on it and lives just up the road, he must be 70 odd, thought it was pretty kool
just goes to show your never to old to be a vanner :wink:
been playing wiv me axle at work, but its biting me arse, needs a bit more machining to the discs :roll:

axles finished, pretty much new everything, spent ages lookin for a better ratio cwp, but couldn't find one, so will run with what I have, 4.62:1 :shock:
going to run 15 inch wheels now with a 205 tyre, so what I lose in gearing, I might gain a bit back in wheel diameter, will see.

welding is done...………………. for now :roll:
offered the axle in place yesterday, turns out I welded the new brake pipe brackets right where the bump stops will land on top of the axle, doh, in my defence I did build the axle at work and the van is at home, hey ho, so I took to my freshly painted finished axle with a cutting disc and chopped them off :evil:
good news is my new wheels fit perfect 8) need to sort out a spare though, was gonna redrill one of my spare revo's, but the center bore is too small to fit on the rear, so need a plan b there.
oh and I took the whole exhaust system off today aswell, gonna have another go at that, see how we get on.
will try to get some pics up if I can be arsed
more soon :)
