    Started on the back end today, subframe off, one front mount is just getting ripe, so welding it properly and then protecting the whole underside of the back end. New brake/suspension/fuel pipes going back on. New genuine spheres. As you can see from the fires in the pic, the subframe is being re-bushed along with the diff. They are a bugger! More pics to follow as and when. Hoping to finish the welding tonight.

    Nice one Rob. Whilst you have the subframe out I would highly recommend replacing the arms that adjust the toe and camber.

    They seize solid in there and its a lot easier doing it when its out on the floor than when its in situ with the fuel tank in the way.
