Lol in my defence we did hit 38.8 degrees here last week. Our hottest day ever apparently.

bit of work tidying a few things up.

Steering rack before:


After a bit of hammerite.


Anti roll bar Before


After



Struts just got jetwashed and de-greased. Hard to believe these units have done over 300,000kms they look like new.



Suspension will all be revisited at somepoint. The plan is for some decent coilovers and to get it all polybushed.
Although I'm amazed considering the amount of Kms this car has done that all the OEM bushes seem to be in good order with very little wear.

Is that surface rust that was on the steering rack? Is it caused by the shit on the UK roads?

No I remember that being bad when I bought the car.
If it had been from the roads there would be other similar areas on the car such as the ARBs etc. Hubs are covered but I'd expect that on them but they are cleaning up ok so I'm not concerned about them.
