tis entirely true - you never reached the end of the list of things you were going to do with that car... You just avoided the issue, by killing it instead! :P

As winter come iv decided to work on ludes back. Car is in the garage last 11 winters :D

Iv took all out in couple hours and inspected what is wrong. Not much to work on as there is a few parts in the chassis.

Found one arm bent . And alignment bolts rusted in bushings badlly.
Image
Bushings were burned out and made a new ones reinforced ones as i couldnt found any original to buy.
Image

As you saw from another post iv started to paint all parts as all was out the car allready.
Image
Image
Image

When all parts was painted and others covered in anti gravel paint started to work on the cars bottom.

Not many photos but here it is. Brushed , primed, 2 anti gravel coats and fresh black color to protect.

Image
Image
Image
Image

When its done all parts must go in :D

Image
Image
Image

And on the wheels again :D

Image

Oh and this snake left the car in same time :lol:

ABS and 4WS wires

Image

All this cost me only 150 eur to rebuild it.

And its not over :D still working on the car in other places , will let you know soon when im done :D

stay here :)

That bent arm is a right shame!

The welded in bush... Is that because the replacement bush you found was a larger diameter than the original bush, so you had to drill out the hole size in the arm? (think that's what I can see in the pic).
