The rear bolts? Absolutely sh!te those captive things they put on around the nut... I find you can just about get a spanner on the nut, but you need two people. One to hold the spanner, and one to undo the bolt.

Been a bit busy with the old 5 lately, while the weathers been bad she's been in the garage getting spoilt

Iv got a spare engine goin in that has been rebuilt, new pistons, re ground crank, ported head, new liner seals etc

My old engine had a few oil leaks the whole bay was a mess, the good thing is though it's projected the subframe and other parts from rust.



The gear box was coverd as well, a bit of gunk and elbow grease soon made a difference





After







1 of 9 shades of tungsten grey, luckily I got the rite one lol









Powder coating can get addictive





New bush's, track rod ends and ball joints





Few new parts pretty much nearly everything















Rolled her out for a wash today, couldn't bare the dust anymore







Hopefully have more progress soon, thanks for looking

Benj.
