Although I have been a bit quiet on here, work has continued on the spraying of the chassis and started cleaning up the rear axle, so Q an excuse for some more sand blasting and powder coating.

The powder coating does give a very good finish :)

Cleaning and starting to hand paint the axle casing in the epoxy paint. Considering if I should upgrade the 13.00 cc (3.89) diff.
As you can see doing one end at a time so I can reassemble the brake parts correctly.

Been a little quiet of late but feed up with treading water waiting for some parts that is holding up me starting on paint prep of the panels and building up the chassis.
