I'm sure itll look fantastic once painted considering the standard of work so far, I plan on repairing all rust rebuild engine or swap for a 1275 if i find a good one and then a full respray and a decent interior if i can find van panels ill replace the side windows with those too

All I'm waiting for is my minispares order, which was placed over a week ago
Lately they're deliveries are taking a longggggghh time
So down garage tonight to rebuild shafts and few niggly bits n pieces :)

So got to it again tonight!!! Brought the new shafts down and split them :) and stripped the vtec ones out and cleaned em and refitted em :) cleaned up everything, fixed one of my lug bolts as one snapped and took the bottom arms off and adjusted a little then cleaned em up ! While I had everything stripped off(hubs,arms,brakes) my bro got cracking on the hi los and suspension cones ;) all in and looking great :) didn't take many pics as was full of grease :) but got few :)
