The new chassis is now getting a little heavy on Jan’s Dad’s old wooden trestles.
The rear is now finished with its new brake pipework, grease, and a lick of paint.
The springs are on, but I’m having difficulty doing up the inner 26mm nuts, as it seems to me I need a very slim spanner (which I haven’t got)! The front suspension arms and steering are on, and it’s had a first lick of paint…2 coats to go.
I’ve got a nice new box of bits from ECAS parts (www.ecas2cvparts.co.uk) including new front brake discs and pads,
so we’ll soon start to move the engine and gearbox over, but I’ll have to sort the Trestles first!
On the pictures note the new “R7″ type fuel hose we sell which has a very high ethanol resistance, and the shiny new stainless steel large clip, and new 1/4” bore copper fuel pipe from rear to the front. You can also see my 2 clips of professional Draper sockets….the type that presses on the flats not the corners so I’m not knackering up any of the nuts and bolts.
